Venue: Espacio Bertelsmann (c/ O’Donnell 10, Madrid).
The war in Ukraine has repositioned the pieces of the international chessboard and is giving way to a new world order not imagined until recently.
How are the pieces of the game changing? How should the EU act? What role should the EU play? How are powers such as the United States, Russia and China changing?
These are some of the questions that will be discussed at the presentation of the study Keeping Friends closer: why the EU should address new geoeconomic realities and get its neighbours back in the fold, jointly conducted by the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Vienna Institute for Economic Studies (wiiw), and at the panel discussion that will follow.
