The European Union as a Credible Global Actor: Workshop to discuss the forthcoming EU Global Strategy, supported by the European Centre, POLIS and the Cambridge DAAD Research Hub

Cambridge, April 2016

POLIS DAAD workshop

On 4 and 5 April 2016, the European Centre at the Department of Politics and International Studies hosted a workshop on the forthcoming EU Global Strategy.

Recent crises such as the mass movements of refugees from North Africa and the Middle East, the conflict in Ukraine and the advancement of ISIL have raised questions about whether the EU is capable of reacting effectively in a rapidly changing and complex world. Despite or because of these crises, the EU has decided to draw up a new EU Global Strategy (EUGS) for foreign security and policy to be prepared by the EU High Representative (HR) this year.

The workshop brought together PhD students, established scholars and experts from Germany, Britain and elsewhere to discuss the EU's credibility as a global actor. It focussed on the roles of Germany, the UK and other EU countries in recent crises and the proposed Global Strategy for Foreign and Security Policy.

The full workshop report is available here.
