The European Enitiative En Eecurity Etudies (EISS) is a Europe-wide cluster of over sixty universities that share the goal of consolidating security studies in Europe

The first two-day conference of the EISS, to become an annual conference, will be held in Paris on January 13-14, 2017, at the University Panthéon-Assas (Paris 2). The aim of the EISS is two-fold: first, to establish a Europe-wide network on security studies, with an annual conference and permanent thematic standing groups; and second, to develop future research projects and funding applications among European scholars and academic institutions working in the field of security studies. The EISS is thematically-driven, open to all theoretical approaches and interdisciplinary. The permanent standing groups, and their panels at the annual conference, gather scholars to discuss their current or future research projects. The EISS encourages research that originates from a range of different theoretical perspectives and/or applies interdisciplinary approaches (political science, history, sociology, etc.). Each partner institution participates in the EISS with one/two scholars and covers the accommodation and travel expenses to Paris of its one/two scholars attending this event.
