At the end of each year, the FRIDE team reflects on the challenges likely to dominate the EU’s foreign policy agenda in the following twelve months. In 2012, the euro crisis and shifts in global power require a more assertive focus on immediate economic interests. Geo-economics is likely to be of increasing relevance to EU foreign policy.
In this context, FRIDE organised the debate “Challenges for European Foreign Policy in 2012. What kind of geo-economic Europe?” which took place on Monday, 27 February 2012.
