— Drawing from the latest issue of International Affairs, experts discuss the future of the EU’s foreign policy and challenges it faces.

Recently, much has been made of the need to strengthen the institutions of the European Union. In light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the EU’s military power has been bought into particular question.

However, the future of the EU’s foreign policy faces many other significant issues predating the conflict. The EU is bound up in an international order that is being tested amid a volatile global environment. Against this tumultuous background, it’s essential that we explore the role and relevance of the EU in our changing world.

The panel will discuss key questions including:

  • What are the biggest challenges facing the EU today?
  • How might the EU adapt and evolve to these challenges to remain a relevant global actor?
  • What role does the EU play in the international order?
