Upcoming Round Tables
Regular Round Tables are the key meeting format of the ESRT. These structured and results-oriented meetings bring together key actors in the field of security and defence to discuss and develop scenarios and political options for current and upcoming issues. The Round Tables are usually composed of participants from the EU institutions, national governments, business and academia or the research sector.
19.02.2013 LIMITS OF PERSONNAL FREEDOM: CIVIL RIGHTS OF SOLDIERS UNDER ATTACK?
The 19th of February, the European Security Round Table (ESRT) in collaboration with Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit will hold a conference on the issues linked to soldiers’ civil rights. From one EU country to another, soldiers may be prohibited from running for public office, face travel restrictions and even censorship during missions. The aim of this conference is to address these shortcomings in order to determine what measures could be taken to improve soldiers’ civil rights. Speakers include Hellmut Königshaus (Parliamentary Commissioner for the Armed Forces) and Emmanuel Jacob (President of the European Organisation of Military Associations (EUROMIL)).
