Press Release - IV India-EU Forum, 23-24 October, 2012

The IVth India-EU Forum on Effective Multilateralism took place in Brussels on 23-24 October, 2012 bringing together policy analysts from both sides to brainstorm on how the India-EU partnership could be taken forward. The Forum was led by Dr. Antonio Missiroli, Director of the European Union Institute for Security Studies on the EU side and Ambassador Rajiv Bhatia, Director-General of the Indian Council of World Affairs on the Indian side, and was organised in cooperation with FRIDE.

 

At the opening session of the Forum attended by Mr. Dinkar Khullar, Ambassador of India to the EU, Mr. Pierre Vimont, Executive Secretary-General of the European External Action Service, and members of the diplomatic corps and academia, a publication entitled “The EU-India Partnership: Time To Go Strategic?” jointly produced by the EUISS and the ICWA was released, providing a critical assessment of the deliberations held under the Forum so far. The following day, four panel discussions focusing on the themes ‘Convergent Strategy and Security Issues’, ‘Convergences and Divergences on Non-Traditional Security and Development Issues’, ‘Cooperation in Global Economic Governance’ and ‘Enhancing the India-EU Strategic Partnership’ were held. The Forum will present its conclusions to both sides shortly.
