On April 13-14 scholars and practitioners from both sides of the Atlantic took stock of the European Union’s role in the world at a time of internal and external challenges. In particular, the conference considered:
- whether and how the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the EU will affect what the EU tries to achieve beyond its borders and how effective it is in realizing those objectives;
- the challenges posed to the EU by the Trump Administration’s non-traditional foreign policy; and
- the implications for the EU’s role in the world of China’s continued rise and Russia’s assertiveness.
The public presentations were recorded and will be posted here shortly.
The conference report is available here.
