Centre for European Security Studies new host to EUCAM

January 2, 2017

EUCAM was developed by FRIDE, Madrid, in cooperation with CEPS, Brussels, in 2008. From 2010 until 2015, EUCAM was implemented by FRIDE that concluded its think tank activities by December 2015. The EUCAM coordinator and associate researchers have continued their involvement in the EUCAM initiative and have found a new hosting organisation in the Centre for European Security Studies (CESS) from Groningen, the Netherlands (www.cess.org).

CESS is a research and training centre that has been active in promoting good governance in the security sector and beyond since the early nineties. The centre is currently active in the Western Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia with parliamentary support projects. CESS in collaboration with the EUCAM initiative has been awarded a grant by the Open Society Foundations to raise the profile of Europe-Central Asian relations and help strengthen European policies towards Central Asia. The project will run over the course of 2017.

EUCAM has established itself as a knowledge hub providing information and expert opinion on Europe-Central Asian relations. Over the years, EUCAM has published over 100 working papers, policy briefs, commentaries and newsletters. Also over 25 roundtables and conferences in Central Asia, Europe and the United States were organized. With CESS, the EUCAM initiative has found a new home where both can enforce each others activities and further built on earlier collaboration concerning security and good governance in Central Asia. In reviving EUCAM, as a European think tank initiative, CESS will seek to impact European policy communities through innovative research.
