The European Global Strategy (EGS) to be released in June this year promises to add yet another instrument to the EU’s foreign policy toolbox. Dealing with the challenges of the world – more connected, more contested and more complex, as the High Representative noted in her Strategic Review – requires coordinated and effective EU action. While the publication of the EGS will offer some much-needed strategic guidance for the Union’s foreign policy, persistent weaknesses of inter-institutional coordination prevent the EU from unfolding its full potential.
Against this background, the German Institute for International and Security Affairs – Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) organises an expert exchange on the necessary steps towards a more coherent EU foreign policy with Ronja Kempin and Ronja Scheler from SWP Berlin who present the key conclusions of their recent topical study (link in German), and commented by Julia de Clerck-Sachsse (EEAS) and Sylvia Hartleif (EPSC).
