The war in Ukraine has radically changed the European security landscape. European and Euro-Atlantic institutions face unprecedented challenges as a conflict by conventional and hybrid means is being waged in the heart of the European continent with no end in sight.
The implications of the war for the EU and NATO and the consequences for peace, stability, and security in Greece and the wider region of Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean were the focus of discussions at the international meeting “Athens Security Forum” organized by the Institute of International Relations (IDIS) on the 24th of November in Athens with the participation of leading academics and policymakers.
