Europe has been increasingly exposed to hybrid threats that comprise hostile actions designed to destabilise a region or a state. To counter these and other threats, and foster the security and resilience of the EU, its member states and neighbours, the EU Global Strategy calls joint efforts in the field of security and defence, cyber, energy and strategic communications. In the context of the implementation of the EU Global Strategy, the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA) will organise, together with the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the EU Institute for Security Studies (EUISS), a conference on hybrid threats and resilience of the EU, its member states and neighbours. The two-day conference will bring together scholars and policy-makers to discuss how the vision of the EU strategy should be translated into action.
