Workshop on Maritime Challenges for the EU

06 June 2014

EU - EU Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki will partake on 6 June in Athens in a workshop on "Maritime challenges for the EU", co-organised by the European Union Institute for Security Studies and ELIAMEP, the Hellenic foundation for European and Foreign Policy.

Commissioner Damanaki will address the audience on maritime security. This issue is complex as threats at sea have become increasingly cross-sectorial and are thus not any more of relevance 'solely' for particular sectorial authorities but are relevant to many actors simultaneously, both at land and at sea. The challenges require a combination of different actions, civil and military, addressed in a co-ordinated manner.

On 6 March 2014, the European Commission and the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy a Joint Communication to the European Parliament and the Council "For an open and secure global maritime domain: elements for a European Union maritime security strategy". This joint communication presents a vision of the Union's maritime security interests and threats, and proposes the areas in which cooperation between various maritime players can be enhanced beyond what is already good practice today.
