As the single major stopover of the academic conference circuit in Brussels, this multidisciplinary event represents the premium venue at which international studies scholars and policy practitioners debate the role of the EU in the turbulent realm of international affairs. The fourth edition took place from 22 to 24 May 2014. You can read the conference report online.

Speakers included Karel De Gucht (EU Trade Commissioner), David Malone (UN Under-Secretary-General), Claude-France Arnould (European Defence Agency), General Patrick de Rousiers (EU Military Committee) and Professor Jolyon Howorth (Yale University).

The organisation of EUIA IV was made possible thanks to the financial support of the European Commission's Jean Monnet Programme, the Brussels Capital Region, the Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS) and the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO).
