European Foreign Policy at a Crossroads: The Southern Neighbourhood
The EU faces an unprecedented number of external challenges in an international environment that is becoming increasingly fragile, divided and competitive. Five years on from the Arab Spring, the region is more volatile than ever.
The speakers will discuss how the EU can best support political and economic reform in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly in light of the European neighbourhood policy review due later this year. They will also explore the recent responses to the refugee and migration crisis in the Mediterranean, as well as the opportunities and challenges this presents.
This workshop is part of a series on the future of European foreign policy organised in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (UK & Ireland Office).
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
