On 14 and 15 October 2021, the Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies of the College of Europe, Bruges campus, will organise an international conference to discuss the European Union’s role in the governance of contested global spaces.
In recent years, several ‘global spaces’ have (re-)emerged as key theatres of political and legal contestation: the Polar regions, the High Seas, the atmosphere (in particular climate change), cyberspace and outer space. The conference will explore the EU’s evolving role in the governance of several of these contested global spaces from both political science and legal perspectives.
The international conference will be launched on Thursday, 14 October, at 17h00, by the Department’s annual EU Diplomacy Lecture, which will be delivered by the EEAS Ambassador at Large for Climate Diplomacy, Marc VANHEUKELEN, on “EU Climate Diplomacy: Projecting Green Global Leadership”.
Participation is free of charge. For more details and the registration form for the EU Diplomacy Lecture, please click here (possibility to follow the lecture remotely).
