Europe’s role on the World Stage
Russia’s war in Ukraine has drawn renewed attention to Europe’s role on the world stage. Having displayed a unified response to Russian aggression by imposing sanctions on Moscow and helping millions of Ukrainian refugees, the continent is now facing other urgent challenges including the cost-of-living crisis, energy shortages and an increase in extreme weather.
In this video we explore how the European Union’s unique history informs its response to various crises, how national and common interests collide and how the next decades could be shaped by new trading relationships, particularly with Africa.
We also consider Europe’s challenges in the field of innovation and ask what needs to be done for the continent to achieve its goal of becoming a global leader in the green transition.
