The Euro Crisis – Consequences for security


Participants in ‘Security and Defence Learning 2012’ and SDL Educa are also invited to join leading experts at a special discussion luncheon on the Euro crisis and its possible security consequences. The lunch will be hosted by the New Security Foundation, organisers of SDL, and it provides an opportunity to discuss not only the possible implications of the crisis for European security but also how to prepare for them.


At the luncheon, economic analysts will join security experts for a debate about the implications for Europe of a failure to solve the currency crisis.


Speakers at the meeting, which is the first in The New Security Foundation’s series of ‘Politeia Circle’ luncheons, will include Wolf-Rüdiger Bengs, former spokesman of the Bundesbank, Klaus-Peter Willsch, Member of the Bundestag and co-founder of the ‘Alliance Against the European Stability Mechanism,’and Baroness Neville-Jones, former UK Minister for Security and Counter-Terrorism and Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee.


New Security Foundation Chairman Dr Harold Elletson said: “A failure to solve the Euro crisis could have serious implications for European security. These need to be considered alongside any purely economic analysis. These are worrying times for all Europeans and we need to be aware of the dangers. ”
