The role of Italy and Europe in new partnerships for solidarity

Dates:
  • Thu 21 Jan 2021 15.00 - 16.00
  Add to Calendar 2021-01-21 15:00 2021-01-21 16:00 Europe/Paris The role of Italy and Europe in new partnerships for solidarity

POSTPONED - new date to be confirmed.

A high-level conversation between Emanuela Del Re (Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation) and Jutta Urpilainen (European Commissioner for International Partnerships). The conversation will be moderated by Prof. Alex Stubb, Director of the School of Transnational Governance.

A founding member state of the European Communities, Italy was a prominent advocate of European unity during the construction of Europe and has remained a pivotal member throughout the European project. At the same time, its commitment to European integration has been tested in the context of the Eurozone and migrant crises, not least as the first member state to face the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe. For now, Italy as a member state has demonstrated strong resilience and championed solidarity notwithstanding growing support within its electorate towards nationalist movements.

Moving forward, Italy’s role in the future of Europe will be crucial, both in addressing the EU’s internal challenges and in strengthening EU relations with the rest of the world. As we stand at a major crossroads in the history of European integration, it is a timely moment to conduct high-level dialogue among prominent actors from both the Italian and EU contexts to discuss Italy’s present and future relationship with the EU, namely on foreign policy, the Economic and Monetary Union, and international solidarity.

By counting on an audience comprising the dynamic and diverse scholarly community of students, researchers, fellows and staff at the EUI’s doctoral programme, Robert Schuman Centre and School of Transnational Governance, the conference additionally succeeds in bridging the gap between academia and policymaking.
