The workshop will take place on March 30, 2007, in Brussels.
The workshop is intended for a selected number of participant guests (45) who represent the public and private security and intelligence sectors, practitioners and scholars (including doctoral students). Relevant representatives of the European Union institutions will also be invited to attend. The workshop takes place in a discrete and protected environment. A statement to the press may be distributed after the event.
The scope of the workshop is to stimulate co-operative attitude and consensus on the delicate issue of the public-private intelligence and security interaction in the EU in the context of an emerging Global Civil Security Network. Issues such as the current trends in intelligence and security and the regulatory framework will be discussed. The latter would be compiled in a \’policy paper\‘ to be addressed to the attention of the EU institutions.
