​Please join the Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship for a discussion with Daniela Schwarzer, Senior Fellow with the Project on Europe and Executive Director for Europe and Eurasia at the Open Society Foundations, on the European Union’s most recent attempts to become a more strategic actor on the global stage. From a European perspective, the Biden administration offers a great opportunity to rethink and relaunch the transatlantic relationship and to partner with the U.S. in strengthening multilateralism. However, the EU still punches below its weight in international affairs and defining its strategy towards China is its most important challenge in context.This seminar will explore the most recent steps that the European Union has made to enhance its international role as well as the state of EU-China relations. As much depends on member state developments in the European Union, the seminar will also address the upcoming elections in Germany and France. Faculty Chair, Nicholas Burns will moderate this discussion.
