INTERNATIONAL POLITICS LAUNCH EVENT: Europe in an Age of Global Turmoil

Location 12:30-2:00 pm, Room B13, 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London School of Economics.

In 1997 Ralf Dahrendorf called Europe “a continent that may be ill prepared for globalisation”. This depiction has never been as apt as it is today.

Join experts from the London School of Economics, the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, and Helmut-Schmidt-Universität in Hamburg for an exclusive roundtable to debate the key challenges to Europe’s external relations.

Marking the recent publication of the Dahrendorf Forum’s special issue of International Politics, ‘Rethinking Europe’s external relations in an age of global turmoil’, the panel of contributors will give their analysis of Europe’s position in an unsettled and rapidly changing world.

With specific insights on Europe’s relationships with North America, China, and the Middle East, the event will explore how external insecurity and global power shifts impact Europe’s internal challenges and the role it can play on the global stage going forward.
