Navigating Stormy Wheather: Dissecting the European and U.S. Contribution to Security and Stability in Iraq

In this seminar we stress the Iraqi perspective on European and U.S. security engagement in Iraq. The question at stake: What does Iraq need from its European and U.S. allies to succeed in protecting its people and securing its territorial integrity? How can Europe and the United States continue to contribute to the capacity building of the Iraqi security sector? On an international level, what are the common interests that would allow for a wider strategic Baghdad-Brussels-Washington partnership to ensure security, stability, and a geopolitical balance? Lastly, what could be the EU's input to the region—especially in light of the prospective results of the current U.S.-Iraqi strategic dialogue? Is Brussels prepared to take on greater responsibility?

The EU has committed itself to a new free trade agreement (FTA) with Vietnam but has on the other side partially withdrawn “Everything but Arms” trade preference (EBA) for products imported from Cambodia – in both cases the argument of human rights was brought forward. Economic and geopolitical interest of the EU in Vietnam as a partner in the region became evident.

COUNTERBALANCING THE STATE: HOW CAN CIVIL SOCIETY PROMOTE TRANSFORMATION?

Despite rather gloomy prospects for democratic transition in the EaP region, the EU is still a player capable of having a positive impact on developments in the region. CSOs remain the true allies of the EU in its Eastern Neighborhood to raise the voice for democratic transition. The future status of CS as an influential player counterbalancing the EaP states will determine countries’ political model in the region.
