The EU faces an unprecedented number of external challenges in an international environment that is becoming increasingly fragile, divided and competitive.

In this session, the speakers will examine the key foreign policy priorities for the EU and consider how it can best respond to the multiple challenges it faces. In particular, it will look at the roles of the UK and Germany in providing security in Europe.

This workshop is the last in a series on the future of European foreign policy organized in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (UK & Ireland Office).

Attendance at this event is strictly by invitation only.
