Must read


  • Tobias Gehrke, Senior policy fellow, ECFR 
  • Sabine Weyand, Director General, DG Trade, European Commission 

Chaired by

Agathe Demarais, Head of the geoeconomics initiative and Senior policy fellow, ECFR 

As the European Union sets its new agenda, this webinar will delve into geoeconomics-related priorities for the incoming European Commission. Drawing on two new ECFR reports – “It just makes cents: Why the EU needs to step up its geoeconomics game” and an upcoming policy brief –  this webinar will offer a platform to discuss Europe’s geoeconomics priorities, and how they can be implemented. What is the EU’s economic leverage in an era of increased great power competition? How can the bloc beef up its institutional framework to deal with geoeconomics-related issues, such as sanctions on Russia, de-risking from China or green competitiveness? Which emerging economies will be most consequential to Europe’s geoeconomics ambition and what can the bloc offer them to become an attractive partner?
