SIS prof. Garret Martin will speak with Federica Mogherini, the former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs.
Transatlantic partnerships are facing major challenges stemming from the ongoing war in Ukraine, including energy implications, the rise of China, and spiraling inflation. However, these multiple shocks have also provided an opportunity for greater transatlantic cooperation and coordination. Federica Mogherini, former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and current rector of the College of Europe, will discuss these subjects and more during this conversation with SIS professor Garret Martin. An audience Q&A will follow the discussion.
