SUMMARY

Through this Council decision, the European Union (EU) has decided to continue drawing on the expertise of the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) to provide research and analysis on international issues for the EU ’s common foreign and security policy (CFSP). The EUISS was originally set up in January 2002. It is based in Paris and has a liaison office in Brussels.

Through its research and analysis, the EUISS contributes to European decision-making in the area of the CFSP.

Its activities include organising networking events and workshops, as well as collecting relevant information for EU officials and experts. It also acts as an interface between the EU institutions and the world of external experts, including security actors.
