Our working group Europe and Foreign Policy is about activities and relationships between states. We analyze all factors influencing foreign policies shape: domestic considerations, the policies of other states, geopolitical plans.
What is the main goal of this working group?
In our working group there are members from different countries. It helps us to analyze the issus from different perspectives. I believe that the most important thing in foreign policy is good understanding of contexts – historical, cultural, social.
Foreign Policy is linked with geopolitics, security and economy but also foreign policy takes into consideration global crisises like migration crisis or climate crisis. I see the European Union as an influential actor in the global arena. In this working group we give a lot of attention the EU foreign policy.
