During the past year, the EU has been confronted with an unprecedented flow of refugees and migrants along the Balkan routes, and even before this, we had to contend with huge numbers arriving over the Mediterranean Sea. Unfortunately, we had to acknowledge that the EU and its Member States were insufficiently prepared to meet the challenges of the migration crisis successfully.

Austria and the Egmont Institute organised a panel discussion on migration, in particular on the question of 'how CSDP can support'. The event aimed to deepen discussion of the way forward and give new momentum to the implementation of pragmatic solutions. The European Security and Defence College supported the training activity and the Egmont Palace was the setting where the experts met.

From 3 to 6 October, Austria and the European Security and Defence College held the third module of the 10th CSDP training programme for the Western Balkan region. Major General Friedrich Schrötter (COMEUFOR) invited the course organisers and the participants to visit CAMP BUTMIR (Sarajevo), the headquarters of the military operation European Union Force Althea (EUFOR ALTHEA). EUFOR Althea is a military deployment in Bosnia and Herzegovina to oversee the military implementation of the Dayton Agreement.

Сегодня пресс-секретарь Европейской службы внешних связей сделала следующее заявление:

"Московские власти опечатали офис Amnesty International (AI) и сняли замки, таким образом не позволяя сотрудникам московского офиса Al войти в здание. 

Мы находимся в контакте с Amnesty International, как с европейской штаб-квартирой, так и с сотрудниками в Москве, которые утверждают, что указанные московскими властями причины для закрытия офиса являются неверными.
