Making the EU a Stronger Global Actor: Postelection Perspectives

Must read

As its citizens head to the polls in June’s European Parliament elections, the EU faces an unprecedented combination of external threats. From Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the war in Gaza to economic, energy, and military dependencies and the climate crisis, the scale of the challenges is such that the very existence of European integration is in peril.

To navigate these troubled waters, the incoming cohort of EU leaders will need to make bold decisions that bolster the union’s geopolitical power and render it a stronger global actor.

To chart the future of EU foreign policy at a time of intensifying global rivalries and rising divisions at home, the Carnegie Europe Foundation invites you to a public discussion to mark the conclusion of the ENGAGE project.

A light reception will follow.
