Assessing the EU’s Global Agenda
There is a growing confidence in Brussels that the EU has overcome some of its immediate challenges. Earlier this year, eurozone growth hit a ten-year high and the EU27 have remained surprisingly united over Brexit. This relative optimism has given new focus to the EU’s international agenda, which includes proposals for a new strategy toward the Western Balkans, a security and defence fund and greater cooperation with countries in Africa and the Middle East.
But there are longer-term challenges ahead. With the US looking increasingly inwards, Ambassador Vale de Almeida will discuss what role the EU and its member states can play in the international order and global institutions. What are the EU’s priorities? And how can the EU’s relationship with US be mobilized to function most effectively in achieving these goals?
