Competition among increasingly assertive great powers challenges Europe’s long-held approach to shape interdependence and enhance stability through rules-based multilateral cooperation. In this new context, the EU and member states need to calibrate their approach to the shifting policies and priorities of the United States and China.

What common ground exists among the different national perspectives across Europe, and where do they differ? How has the EU approached tensions between the US and China, within a more contested strategic landscape? How can Europe defend its interests while supporting the openness and stability of the international order and how can multilateralism be strengthened at a time of geopolitical competition? These are some of the questions that we will address at this event.
