Internal disputes over the adherence to common values and global challenges demanding unified EU positions, have re-ignited debates over questions of shared identity and the EU’s evolving capacity to act on the global stage, credibly, and in unison.
Moving beyond the traditional scope of a mostly intra-European discourse, this format seeks to inte-grate foreign perspectives from around the world, to approach answers to the fundamental question of what unites - rather than divides - Europeans, the EU and its member states.
To what extent can the European Union be considered a state-like actor? How do perceptions of the EU’s cultural, political, and legal identity influence its legitimacy and room for maneuver? And has the EU re-cently lost credibility as a global standard-bearer for value-based policy in the world?
