The event will be live-streamed on this page (on the video tile below) and on our social media channels.
In this online discussion with Members of the European Parliament from Central and Eastern Europe, we want to learn about the current state of play related to the European push for strategic autonomy vis-à-vis the perspectives from CEE. The discussion will crosscut and examine horizontal aspects, including defence and security, trade, industry, technology, climate and health.
- Where does CEE stand on moving towards a European strategic autonomy?
- In what issue areas it is desirable and where not to be strategically autonomous?
- What would be the benefits and challenges for the region?
- What constructive ideas/projects CEE can offer towards a European strategic autonomy?
