Europe and the World

Europe and the World explores the international role of the European Union across six thematic areas. These vital themes reflect rising tensions around the globe, a pressing need for renewed cooperation with state and non-state actors, and the demand for a comparative perspective in order to obtain a better understanding and learn to cope with diversity:

  • Peace and security;
  • Promotion of universal values and human rights;
  • Poverty alleviation and sustainable development;
  • Global trade and financial interdependence;
  • Global digital connectivity, market regulation, and cooperation on technological developments affecting world affairs;
  • Global pandemics and health cooperation, especially with a view to tackling rising inequalities.
