European Foreign Policy at a Crossroads


The European Union's efforts to forge a common foreign and security policy have yielded notable accomplishments – notably in the Balkans, in securing a nuclear deal with Iran, and in the very process of enlarging the bloc. Now, the durability of those achievements and the future of the EU's ability to execute a collective foreign policy are clouded by a new constellation of factors: Russia's belligerence in Ukraine and its "near abroad" under Putin, Turkey's autocratic turn under Erdogan, Britain's decision to leave the EU, and Trump's "America first" foreign policy. Baroness Catherine Ashton, the EU's first ever foreign minister, will assess these trends in conversation with Wilson Center President Jane Harman.

 

Speakers

The Right Honourable Catherine Ashton, Baroness of Upholland: Distinguished Fellow, Former Vice President of the European Commission and former High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
