We live in an ever changing world. The big geostrategic shift from the west to the east, the civil war in Syria and the crisis of the European Union are just some of the challenges facing us. In this conference, we´ve chosen to focus on four topics; gender security, the crisis in the EU, the re-emerging Russia and the role of the UK in the world. One could look at this as four separate issues or as four issues that converge and frame the time in which we live in.
