Young Security Conference 2021

We cordially invite Master Students, PhD candidates, post-docs and young professionals from around the world to present their work and proposals at this second edition of the Young Security Conference Programme. Our seminar connects young innovative thinkers with experts from policy and research in a discussion on the future of European security and defence.



The YSC 2021 takes place on the 12th and 13th of July in Munich at the historic Amerikahaus in a hybrid format, meaning all sessions will be streamed live and workshops will be held online. The YSC is a unique initiative that stands out for its participatory and innovative character. The aim is to bring together young talents and experts for two days and to formulate concrete policy proposals on the future of European security and defence policy. Through the submission of policy papers, workshops, panels, and innovative exchanges and techniques, the conference provides a perfect environment for sharing and discussing new ideas related to the new EU strategic autonomy at all levels. This year, the YSC will host policy sessions with high-ranking policy makers & some of the best thinkers from all over Europe!
