Currently, the European Union faces fundamental political challenges concerning the future of transatlantic relations, the role of NATO, and the recent alarming developments in the Middle East. How will the EU position itself in an ongoing geopolitical shift of powers, how can strategic independence can be achieved without political isolation, and what are other key issues in the current CSDP landscape? Such and other topics will covered by our high-level discussants.
