On Thursday, January 28th, the President of IGMO, Ellen Wasylina, presented her second book entitled “La Défense européenne face aux menaces: l’Union Européenne est-elle prête pour son 11 septembre?” (L’Harmattan, 2015) to more than thirty students at a Conference hosted by the ISG Paris business school (Institut Supérieur de Gestion) in central Paris.
Ms. Wasylina’s presentation (présentation 28012016) was then highlighted and put into perspective by two discussants, namely:
- Marie-Laetitia Gourdin, Vice-President of IGMO, who highlighted main geopolitical issues of recent times, and
- Aurélien Seguin, member of Euro-Défense France, who provided a detailed analysis of the past three decades of regulatory evolutions in the European defence system.
Following these presentations, a vivid debate with the audience ensued, who discussed issues such as terrorism, migration, geopolitics, intelligence and the defence industry in European countries.
