Future Direction of a Sustainable European Neighbourhood Policy

March 2006 to May 2006
The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) seeks to create a system of graduated co-operation and association contracts. The core will be a pan-European internal market. However, the integration of other policies, most notably in the areas of security co-operation, energy and the environment, play a crucial role. Other geopolitical actors like Russia will compete with the EU on the concepts that will define the common European space of the future. Read more

Nach dem Gaskonflikt

Ost-westliche Energieverknüpfungen
For the Russian government, the export of oil and gas is not just a good business deal. The gas conflict with the Ukraine, with which the Russian leadership announced the new year and its G-8 presidency, showed that the Kremlin’s energy policy is at the core of its foreign policy – one that makes clear old power claims in the post-Soviet realm and beyond.

Environment and Security: Research Requirements and Research Priorities

August 1999 to December 1999

The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) asked Ecologic in cooperation with the Swiss Peace Foundation to undertake a study on environmental conflict.

During the 1990s, the term "environmental security" became a buzzword for social sciencists within the realms of environment and security policy-making and in peace and conflict studies. As a result of the academic and political debate which employed differing definitions of "environment and security," this issue area soon lost its conceptional sharpness.
