In the new Group d'Etudes Geopolitiques (GEG) seminar series, the think tank at the École normale supérieur teams up with the School of Transnational Governance (STG), the College of Europe, the European Institute of Columbia University and the Europe Center of the University of Cambridge. With this initiative, the partners aim to provide transnational in-depth discussions to promote fresh views and ideas on European affairs.
The seminars are organised on a weekly basis and bring together high-level academics, policy experts, decision-makers, European stakeholders, researchers and students to exchange insights and opinions on the most pressing matters in Europe and beyond. The one-hour discussions take place online, ensuring high-quality exchanges in times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first episode on 16 September 2021 is entitled the “The European Council and the future of European Politics” and will focus on "the Michel Doctrine". It draws on an in-depth interview with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel on his understanding of internal geopolitical dynamics and the lessons to be learned from Afghanistan, published by the Groupe d'études géopolitiques.
The panel features Jim Cloos, former Director of the Directorate General for General and Institutional Policy of the Council of the European Union, Mehreen Khan, EU Correspondent of The Financial Times and former EUI Professor Wolfgang Wessels who is currently at the University of Cologne.
The seminars are organised every Thursday. Information and registration links are published weekly on the GEG website.
