Read more about my ambition to develop a comprehensive e- learning course on security from a European perspective
Many might argue that the notion of an EU comprehensive approach is a theoretical construction which never will see concrete application. In reality,serious and necessary efforts already have been made. A case in point is maritime security and more specifically piracy. In this and in many other areas it is not a matter of doing it alone but with the international community at large. And it is not a short-term endeavour. Thirdly, it requires hard work and a lot of cooperative spirit. We need many similar efforts in areas such as migration and refugees, cyber security and freedom, gender and security, and in many geographic cases, not least fragile states. You can follow many of these topics in the pages of this website structured in the same way as the handbook on EU and security.

My view on the comprehensive approach as published in the Spring 2015 SEcurity Jam report
To quote, liberally, one of the most famous speeches in the UK House of Commons of all times: The EU may have a desk chair (the resources), it may know in which direction to face it (strategy and intelligence collection) but what if, (as Charlie Brown) it does not know how to unfold it (training) and even worse is not aware that there is one out in the garden storage (comprehensive approach).
This is in short what my book is about.
