Event description
Increasingly illiberal and populist politics in Europe: (How) does it matter for European foreign policy cooperation?

About this event

European Union foreign policy has always been dependent on EU member states ́ support. More profoundly, the Common Foreign and Security Policy was established to manage differences among EU member states, with increased institutional support (e.g. High Representative and European External Action Service) and socialisation in the Council. For the past two years, however, contestation within the EU foreign policy system is said to have reached a new quality, with increasing illiberal, sometimes right-wing and definitely populist politics across Europe in various policy fields impacting on consensus-required foreign policy activities.

This presentation builds on ongoing research that takes stock of 50 years of European foreign policy cooperation. We will review trends of Europeanisation, re-nationalisation and institutionalisation in light of the increased EU ambition to remain relevant amid contending forces in world politics.
