French President Emmanuel Macron has suggested creating a ‘European Political Community’ to foster cooperation between the EU and its neighbors. Some see this as a re-branding of the EU’s neighborhood policy, others have viewed it as an alternative to enlargement. In Prague on October 6, European leaders will discuss this new organization and unveil potential members.
Join us for a discussion of this initiative, with introductory remarks by French Ambassador to the United States, Philippe Etienne, after a short introduction from Wilson Center President & CEO, Ambassador Mark Green, followed by a panel discussion led by Robin Quinville, Wilson Center's Global Europe Program Director, featuring Wilson Center Global Fellow Diana Negroponte and Ambassador Corrado Pirzio-Biroli.
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.
