The Future of European Geostrategy

Europe faces critical internal and external challenges. As a sound foundation to Europe’s international role, what can be said about the degree of internal cohesion? What is Europe’s longer-term response to crises in the East and the South? How is the transatlantic relationship evolving in light of these crises and the rise of China in the Far East? How should Europe view the “Arab Spring” and what is its response to the rise of ISIL? How can Europe simultaneously deal with threats on its neighbourhood and its global interests? How does Europe understand geopolitics and strategy today?

These are just some of the questions that will be raised during our Autumn Lecture Series, jointly organised by the Institute for European Studies-VUB and the Egmont – Royal Institute for International Relations. All lectures will be conducted in English. Attendance is free but registration is required. To register for the lectures please visit our website.
