European foreign policy in times of COVID-19: Borrell’s book addresses main challenges facing Europe’s global role
March 24, 2021
In his book, High Representative Josep Borrell directly addresses key questions for European foreign policy: what does it mean to develop European strategic autonomy? What is the future of the transatlantic partnership under the new US administration and how to deal with the strategic competition between China and the United States? How should the EU act in the face of “new empires” that threaten to destabilise our neighbourhood? And how can it strengthen its partnerships with Africa, Latin America or the Indo-Pacific?
In tackling these questions, HR/VP Josep Borrell Fontelles addresses the main challenges facing Europe’s global role, focusing on key milestones and choices that have marked this exceptional year.
