Another "think tank" (EU Quango). This one has quite alot of literature to download and read. We MUST keep any eye on these sites. Especially as WE ARE FUNDING THIS ONE TOO!
The Mission of the EUISS is to find a common security culture for the EU, to help develop and project the CFSP, and to enrich Europe’s strategic debate.
The EUISS was established by the Council Joint Action of 20 July 2001 (since revised by Council Joint Action of 21 December 2006) as a replacement to the Western European Union Institute for Security Studies (established in July 1990). It was inaugurated on 1 January 2002.
Oversight and Funding
The Institute is funded by EU member countries, according to a GNP-based cost-sharing formula.
It is governed by 2 administrative bodies:
The Political and Security Committee – exercises political supervision.
The Board – lays down budgetary and administrative rules and approves the work programme of the EUISS (chaired by the High Representative).
