EU FOREIGN POLICY - NEW CHALLENGES 2017

 

The EU Foreign Policy Research Group was established in December 2016 by students and young professionals with the interest in the EU foreign policy. 

 

For five months, from January to May 2017, we were closely monitoring the situation in different regions of the world trying to identify developments with the biggest impact on the EU foreign policy.

 

During that time, we discovered new patterns and challenges that the EU faces and we described them in a separate publication. 

 

This piece, including our recommendation on how to tackle these challenges constitutes the final publication of the group and the essence of our activity.
