From the financial crisis to the refugee crisis and now Brexit - the EU has got its hands full with internal issues. This brings along other problems - rising populist movements, security fears and fast-changing governments in several EU Member States. Moreover, tensions and difficulties are emerging both in the European Neighbourhood area and also across the Atlantic. With the UK's departure, the EU is also set to lose a strong foreign policy player. France will then as a consequence be the only EU Member State with nuclear capabilities and a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. Of course, this year's elections in France and Germany may alter the current state of play. New governments, shifting national priorities - can the EU be a global player in foreign policy? Or is it to busy fixing the holes left behind by a succession of crises?
Come and join us for the second round of our Discussion Group on EU Foreign Policy and exchange ideas and arguments!
