EAG European Advisory Group - Your global Task Force
EAG European Advisory Group, headquartered in Berlin, and with offices in Hongkong and Washington through strategic partnerships, offers unique and solution-oriented expertise to governments and companies in the field of security to plan and carry out their activities based on an assessment of a security situation, which gives them comfort and the possibility of risk evaluation both globally and regionally from a European perspective.
Globalization has brought new dimensions of security. Economic activities have become increasingly sensitive to different aspects of security, while security itself has diversified. Long gone are the days, when military security was the only aspect to be taken into account. While military aspects again play an increasingly important role, due to the disappearance of global deterrence, other aspects of security, such as human rights, economy, environment, poverty and transnational threats become more and more important. Especially transnational threats include a wide range of risks from environmental degradation to organized crime and terrorism. Threats such as terrorism have clear national and transnational security implications, others such as increasing pollution, scarce water resources, or aids have perhaps less explicit but still recognizable national and international security relevance. Not only governments have to cope with these threats. Also industry, economy and organizations like NATO, EU, UN and the OSCE will have to deal with transnational threats and counter global terrorism. To cope with transnational threats like terrorism and to safeguard collective security in the next decades will require a series of measures from blunt risk-analysis, civil defense, prevent diplomacy, coordinated intelligence to military means through concerted action between involved ministries on a national level as well as involved countries on a transnational level. Defense-related industries have always been sensitive to security considerations. Other industries, especially energy, water, information technology and infrastructure, are also obviously exposed to changes in the security situation. But investors and other actors of the economy are well advised to have an eye on the security situation of the country and region, where they carry out activities, since changes in the security situation may have devastating effect on profits and investments.
The recognition of this situation advanced all over the world. America here, too, plays the leading role. Accordingly, a number of security specialists are available for advice in the United States. EAG partners believe, however, that a European perspective is also necessary. While astute supporters of the transatlantic cooperation, EAG partners are convinced that Europe has a different, though not contradictory perspective, which is necessary to complement the American one in all parts of the world. EAG therefore closes a global market niche by offering advise to governments and companies and implement methods and measures all over the world in all aspects of security.
