The Awakening of Geopolitical Europe?

Improving global governance
Posted Aug 04, 2022 | Carnegie Europe

The EU’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine magnifies the dissonance between its rhetoric and actions, argues Richard Youngs in his article for Carnegie Europe. The EU’s main policy decisions have been guided by a desire not to get directly involved in managing deeply entwined international interdependencies. A paradigm shift is needed in the debate on the EU’s international role. A more helpful debate would focus on the intricate balances between different kinds of self-interests and priorities, recognising that the EU will struggle simultaneously to set an agenda and avoid risks. It should investigate more rigorously how it can have more global power while avoiding exposure to the risks this entails.
