MFJMCE Conference: Reimagining and Reforming European Foreign Policies-Keynote Speaker

Event information
Venue:FIU-MMC-MARC Building-Pavilion


March 11-12, 2024: Two-day MFJMCE Conference
"Reimagining and Reforming European Foreign Policies"

This conference explores ways to make European foreign policy less Euro-centric and thus, more inclusive and effective. After a keynote reflecting on the overall theme on day one, three academic panels revolve around the question of how to de-center Euro-centric foreign policy prescriptions so to make them more inclusive-participatory and less interventionist on day two. This entails a critical re-evaluation of past European foreign relations, and existing EU foreign and multilateral policies, especially as it relates to questions of race and migration, gender and sexuality, postcolonial relations, environmental protection and democracy and rights promotion. These are not only considered in relations to the inclusion of underrepresented populations, but also revisited in the contexts of increasingly challenging geopolitical environments.
