The European Union's past effort to forge a common foreign and security policy yielded notable accomplishments - notably in the Balkans, in securing a nuclear deal with Iran, and in the very process of enlarging the EU. Now the durability of those achievements and the future of the EU's ability to execute a collective foreign policy are clouded by a new constellation of factors: Russia's belligerence in Ukraine and "near abroad" under Putin, Turkey's autocratic turn under Erdogan, Britain's decision to leave the EU, and President Trump's "America First" foreign policy. Baroness Catherine Ashton, the EU's first ever foreign minister, will assess these trends in conversation with Wilson Center President Jane Harman.
For the past several years, the global migrant crisis has dominated international headlines, and journalists have been at the frontlines of the issue, documenting the plight of displaced persons and their reception in and impact on their new host countries. Among these journalists are Pulitzer Center grantees Ben Taub, Robin Shulman, and Alice Su, whose work on refugees and migrants has been published by media outlets from around the world, including the New Yorker, NPR, Time, Politico, and The Washington Post. The Pullitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is hosting the journalists at Georgetown University's Riggs Library, where they will discuss how communities worldwide have reacted to the refugee crisis. They will analyze the ethics of resettlement and explore religion's role in refugee integration.
This level of displacement has had a profound and unprecedented level of impact in the humanitarian, security, and economic spaces in Europe. How can European governments and multilateral stakeholders in the region work cohesively to develop an effective and sustainable approach to migration? CSIS is hosting an event to discuss these issues.
The Migration Policy Institute is hosting a webinar that will offer insights from EU Member States on how existing, new, and untapped legal pathways—such as resettlement, community-based sponsorship, and family reunification—can interact with other humanitarian policies and fit into a larger protection strategy.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Institut des Amériques for a critical examination of the origins, strategies and consequences of Turkish diplomacy and the struggles of the complicated trilateral relations between Turkey, Europe and the United States.
Project for Prosperity and Development at CSIS is hosting an event to launch a new project on the global forced migration crisis. Over the next year, CSIS will research the journey of these millions of people and what it means for the developing world landscape, and how the U.S., its allies, the public and private sectors, NGOs, academics, government, and security can play a vital role in confronting global displacement and migration.
Global Leaders Forum: The Rt Hon Sir Michael Fallon MP, Secretary of State for Defense of the United Kingdom
CSIS is hosting a conversation with The Rt Hon Sir Michael Fallon MP, Secretary of State for Defense of the United Kingdom, on the ways in which the United States and United Kingdom can maximize the benefits of bilateral and multilateral cooperation to combat current and future threats. Looking ahead, where does the UK see its greatest security threats and how are these evolving? In what ways can the United States and United Kingdom strengthen their special defense and intelligence sharing relationship?
The Atlantic Council is hosting a conversation with Dr. John R. Deni of the US Army War College on his latest study, "Poised to Defend: Rebalancing US Force Posture in Europe and Beyond."
The Heritage Foundation is hosting the Author of "The Strange Death of Europe", Douglas Murray. The book is described as "not just an analysis of demographic and political realities, it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode." He addresses issues such as terrorism, multiculturalism, migration, and more.
Securing Stability in the Middle East and North Africa: How Should the U.S. and the European Union Work Together?
The Hudson Institute's Senior Fellow Mike Doran will welcome Nick Westcott, the European External Action Service’s Managing Director for the MENA, to discuss European views on these issues and others, as well as avenues for cooperation moving forward.
