On 12 March 2021, the Latvian Institute of International Affairs (LIIA), in cooperation with the European Commission’s Representation in Latvia and the Parliament of the Republic of Latvia, will hold an annual high-level international conference: “Baltic EU Conversations 2021: Is Europe Getting Better?”
This will be the sixth year of the “Baltic EU Conversations”, the largest EU-themed high-level international conference in the Baltic states. Every year, speakers are selected to represent the diversity inherent in European Union decision-making – the conference draws the participation of the highest-ranking officials, influential politicians, think-tankers, and academia from the EU member states and various EU institutions.
This year, “Baltic EU Conversations 2021” will deal with seven topics: the EU trade policy, European democracy, European economy in a climate-change aware environment, European strategic autonomy, European Neighbourhood Policy, and as well as the EU crisis dynamics and broader EU foreign policy.
The “Baltic EU Conversations” is supported by the Representation of the European Commission in Latvia and the Parliament of the Republic of Latvia and is organized in cooperation with the Institute of International Relations and Political Science at Vilnius University (Lithuania), the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute and the International Centre for Defence and Security (Estonia), and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Latvia.
