Our continent is going through troubled times. After a quarter of a century that has passed since the end of the Cold War, it has not become a Common Home to all Europeans and is facing the threat of divisions. And as Europe fronts new conflicts and hazards, European Security is back on the agenda.

In the 21st century, Europe has to meet more internal and external challenges. The future of the European Project is uncertain. Waves of migrants are flooding our continent, and its cities are threatened by terror attacks. Extremists and populists are fuelling inter-ethnic and sectarian conflicts. The role of Europe in the changing world is yet to be clarified.

Are the European nations capable of finding effective solutions to these problems? European citizens are looking to politicians for answers.

To discuss these issues the New Policy Forum together with the Czech Iron Curtain Foundation and Italian Fondazione Italiani are holding in Prague, on 16-17 September 2016, an international conference themed European Security after the Cold War: What are the solutions to new challenges?

Under the patronage of the Nobel Prize Laureate Michail Gorbachev and the  President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman.
