ICDS Research Fellows Speaks about Connections and Interlinks between the Crises on EU’s Eastern and Southern Borders

ICDS Research Fellows were panellist at Security and challenges in the EU neighbourhood round table organized by the Estonian School of Diplomacy on 6 October 2015.

They focused on explaining the main differences between the conflicts on EU’s eastern and southern neighbourhoods. Helga Kalm noted that Syria is a lot more chaotic and unpredictable than Ukraine and that is why the conflict in southern neighbourhood will most likely continue escalating for some time. The refugee crisis has now changed EU’s focus, which previously was set more on developments in Eastern Ukraine.
