Europe in the World: Global or Regional Actor in Foreign Policy?

At this session, Ideas Factory's young thinkers discussed the role they think the EU should play in global politics and how a balance between engaging with undemocratic regimes and sticking to European values could be reached. The following recommendations have been made:

  • Ensure the development of a strong common narrative between the EU and the US.
  • Increase investment in infrastructure projects and in community building exercises to boost the Middle East peace process.
  • Engage in a mature dialogue with Russia, with special emphasises on ensuring Human Rights.
  • Improve EU credibility over Human Rights, by ensuring that we respect the Human Rights of people within EU borders.
  • Increase initiatives to foster accountability and good governance in the developing world.
  • Promote and increase funding in youth partnerships between the EU and different regions of the world.
