The Geopolitical Implications of the European Green Deal

Date & Time

Jan. 10, 2022
10:00am – 11:00am ET


The European Green Deal is a new foreign policy tool for the EU with profound geopolitical consequences, both in its immediate neighborhoods and beyond. While the Green Deal is an effort to transform the European economy at its core and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% until 2030, it will also define the EU's global policy priorities in the decades ahead. As the EU takes more of a leadership role in climate change discussions, it may be able to leverage its relationship with both close and more distant partners and to encourage just-transition policies and other green politics beyond its immediate sphere of influence.

Watch our virtual event to discuss the European Union's Green Deal, its implications for climate diplomacy and strategic foresight, and impact on transatlantic relations. This event is co-sponsored by the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and part of our Transatlantic Dialogue Series.

Global Europe Program

The Global Europe Program addresses vital issues affecting the European continent, U.S.-European relations, and Europe’s ties with the rest of the world. We investigate European approaches to critical global issues: digital transformation, climate, migration, global governance. We also examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our program activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.  Read more
