External Affairs and Global Governance (PC3)

“No single country is able to tackle today’s complex problems on its own,” says the 2003 European Security Strategy. We, as federalists, believe that only by acting united, Europe will be able to provide security to its citizens and punch at their weight on the international stage. Particularly with both, the Eastern and the Southern neighbourhood in turmoil,  it  is an urgent task to develop a united and coherent common EU foreign policy.

In our debate, we address how to strengthen the EU’s foreign policy to make the EU a global player, able to act with a single voice and to promote and protect its fundamental values.

The PC will discuss three issues. First, the institutional setup created by the different Treaties, including the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Common Security and Defence Policy. Secondly, the developments in European foreign, security and defence policy in terms of  its means for conducting an active European foreign policy and formulate proposals for federalist action. Thirdly, it will discuss relevant foreign policy issues, in particular the enlargement process, the European Neighbourhood Policy, and global governance.
