1st December - The EU in a changing world – Staying on course in troubled waters


How has the European Union’s foreign policy evolved in the last years? What have been the main achievements? What are the biggest opportunities and the main challenges for the EU in a rapidly changing landscape?

The EU willing to speak “the language of power”, working with others but going it alone when needed, and its role as mediator in international conflicts were among the guiding topics of an online debate among the EU High Representative Josep Borrell and his predecessors Federica Mogherini and Javier Solana that took place on 1st December 2020, at 12:00 - 13.15.
