7th Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture

7th Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture – Europe’s role in the world: player or plaything? By Prof. Brigid Laffan

“We are witnessing a return of Great Power competition and competition between political and economic systems. Urgent challenges – digitalisation, the future of work, the climate crisis, migration and inequality – require national, regional and global responses. The European Union, a polity but not a state, has to adapt and adjust to shifts in global politics. But it struggles to amass collective power or to deploy strategically its resources and capabilities. What are its challenges?”

In her 2021 Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture, entitled ‘Europe’s role in the world; player or plaything?’, professor Brigid Laffan, an internationally recognised expert on the European Union, will analyse the challenges facing Europe in ‘a world of geopolitical shift and shock’.
