I am pleased to invite Zachary Paikin into the Virtual Studio to discuss the state of EU foreign policy. While the major countries in Europe – France, Germany and Italy maintain national foreign policies, the EU has continued to strive to promote an EU foreign policy under the leadership of the current High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security, Josep Borrel. This is perceived to be particularly significant in the light of Russia’s war against Ukraine and the rising tensions between the US and China.
Zach Paikin today is a Researcher in the EU Foreign Policy unit at CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies). He is also a Nonresident Research Fellow with the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy in Toronto and a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London. Zach is also an affiliated expert with the Minsk Dialogue Council on International Relations.
Zach has a number of publications with CEPS, including with colleagues: ‘The EU’s Strategic Compass: A guide to reverse strategic shrinkage?’
So come join Zach Paikin and I as we examine EU foreign policy.
