A glimpse into the counter-terrorism vs human rights conundrum
International conference on human rights and counter-terrorism, Geneva
16 févr, 2015


In the light of recent terrorist attacks in Europe, the controversy about how to strike the appropriate balance between “the fight against terrorism” and the upholding of human rights, might well return to the forefront of attention. The European Union and its Member States are the United States’ closest allies, and the cooperation extends well beyond the traditional NATO framework, deep into counter-terrorism, both on a bilateral and multilateral basis. At the same time, Europe has been resolutely and consistently skeptical as to the course of action taken by the USA in the aftermath of 9/11.

25 juin, 2014

A non-nuclear independent Scotland in NATO? (BBC Radio interview)
Entretien à BBC Radio l’émission 5 Live Drive
20 nov, 2013


Should the SNP’s (Scottish National Party) anti-nuclear stance be a problem for an independent Scotland eager to keep its membership card in NATO ?* In short, not really. Calling for the removal of UK nuclear weapons from its territory and becoming a non-nuclear state is not a priori inconsistent with membership in NATO. Reminder: 20 member countries out of the current 28 do not possess and/or host any nuclear weapons on their soil.

On the transatlantic dimension of British Euroskepticism
Séminaire international à l'université de Toulon
09 avril, 2013


The dynamic of relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union cannot be understood in its totality and in its specificity without taking into account the role played by the United States, particularly through the relationship that London would like to believe "special." Be it directly, indirectly, or even sometimes paradoxically, the American/Atlanticist tropism of the British political and media establishment is at the root of many of their positions considered as skeptical or downright hostile vis-à-vis the European integration.

Scottish Independence and the Question of Transatlantic and European Security
University of Glasgow International Lecture Series
21 mars, 2013


The special position of the UK in the European and transatlantic security field will be one of the key defining elements both for the attitude of other States vis-a-vis a possible Scottish independence (would or would not they prefer to see London weakened even if just temporarily), and for their appreciation of the policies pursued by an independent Scotland (would they be in line with, or different from, those of Whitehall). Looking at the possibility of Scottish independence from a transatlantic-European security perspective implies examining three different albeit closely related subjects:

The armaments sector in front of the great challenges of European integration
Colloque syndical européen de la FNTE CGT
29 sept, 2007


How can we reconcile two fundamentally different logics: that of the armaments sector with all the strategic imperatives linked to it, and that of the European construction which oscillates between a quasi-political entity and a mere large market? Intervention at the European Trade Union Symposium of the FNTE (National Federation of the Workers of the State) of the CGT.

EU accession and the foreign policy dimension
University of Glasgow CRCEES Research Forum
11 mai, 2007


First Annual CRCEES (Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies) Research Forum. CRCEES is an inter-university Centre of Excellence. Presentation on the foreign policy dimension of EU accession.
The instruments of Europe's independence
Colloque à Strasbourg, au Conseil de l'Europe
05 oct, 2006


As for the systematically hidden choice between European dependence or independence, in the texts, everything seems crystal clear. When the ESDP (European Security and Defense Policy) was launched in June 1999 in Cologne, the Declaration of the Fifteen immediately stipulated the need for autonomy and credibility of the Union's means and assets. This is in line with the objectives set out in Article 11 of the Treaty on European Union, in particular the "safeguarding of the common values, fundamental interests, independence and integrity" of the EU. However, not only are we still waiting to see when these beautiful words will be translated into deeds, but the very question of whether they should be one day remains an object of debate.
