  Add to Calendar 2020-06-29 17:00 2020-06-29 18:00 Europe/Paris #FlorenceLive webcast: conversations on the post-Corona world and Geopolitics

The COVID-19 pandemic has already profoundly changed how we live and work, and how the world is organised. To understand these changes and help navigate a post-Corona world, the European University Institute (EUI) School of Transnational Governance (STG) presents a webcast series of conversations and interviews with academics and high-level policy-makers. The experts will discuss social, economic and political issues relating to the new global environment from a transnational perspective, blending academic and policy analysis.

The webcasts will consist of one-hour livestreamed panel discussions every Monday on the implications of COVID-19 on: democracy; state vs. market; climate; digital; migration; the emerging world; geopolitics. In addition, interviews with high-level policymakers will be organised according at the availability of participants. 

This webcast will address the post-Corona world and geopolitics, by examining the questions such as:

  • Has the US lost its pre-eminence in the post-COVID world? 
  • Will China put its imprint on the new global governance system? 
  • Is Europe still relevant?

Discussants:

  • Michael McFaul is the Director and Senior Fellow Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies; the Ken Olivier and Angela Nomellini Professor of International Studies in Political Science; and the Peter and Helen Bing Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, all at Stanford University. He is an analyst for NBC News and a contributing columnist to The Washington Post, and served in the Obama administration, first as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Russian and Eurasian Affairs at the National Security Council at the White House (2009-2012), and then as U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation (2012-2014). He has authored several books, including most recently the New York Times bestseller, From Cold War to Hot Peace: An American Ambassador in Putin’s Russia. 
  • Stefano Sannino is the Deputy Secretary General for Economic and Global Issues at the European External Action Service (EEAS) of the European Union. He is the former Ambassador of Italy to Spain and Andorra (2016 -2020). From 2013 until 2016, he held the position of Permanent Representative of Italy to the EU in Brussels. After a period at the Cabinet of the President of the Commission (from 2002 to 2004) he joined the Directorate General for External Relations as Director for Crisis Management and Representative at PSC (2004-2006), then Director for Latin America (2008-2009) and finally as Deputy Director General for Asia and Latin America (2009-2010). In 2010 he moved to the Directorate General for Enlargement as Deputy Director General and later as Director General, a position he held until June 2013.  

Moderator:
