EMF Conference – Closing Remarks
Air Commodore RAF (Retd.) Andrew Lambert – ERPIC Honorary Chairman
EMF Conference 5-7 December 2016
Larnaca, Cyprus

Are we in an “era of change”, or is it more correct to say we are currently experiencing a “change of era”? Andrew Lambert emphasizes some common themes of the conference: the changing balance of power in the Eastern Mediterranean and growing influence of regional powers, militarisation of the region, and the spread of radical Islam. Current developments in the Eastern Mediterranean are proving that the old security structure is coming to an end, and we are now moving to an entirely new era.
