The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: European Security – Autumn 2015

Written by Patrick Keatinge

Over the past three months, the EU has seen several significant developments in the broad field of European security. In this paper, Patrick Keatinge reflects on the developments in the Ukraine crisis and the Arab winter, and examines the European Union’s response to both of these situations. The author goes on to look at the implications of these developments for Ireland and for the EU as a whole.
