The Global Gateway: A Recipe for EU Geopolitical Relevance?

Improving global governance
Posted Jul 13, 2022 | ECDPM

The Global Gateway is the EU’s new connectivity strategy that aims to create smart, sustainable and secure links with countries around the world in the thematic areas of digital, energy and transportation. It serves to rival China’s Belt and Road Initiative and other regional and global players and seeks to re-establish the EU’s standing, notably in Africa. In their ECDPM discussion paper, Chloe Teevan, San Bilal, Ennatu Domingo and Alfonso Medinilla suggest that the strategy presents a clear European offer based on democratic values, equal partnerships, environmental sustainability, safe and secure infrastructure, and integrates the private sector. But it will need to overcome several challenges to be successful, among them a change in the way development, foreign and economic policy areas work together, combining geopolitical steering and an understanding of private sector needs.
