In our first IPQ Debate, we will further explore a key theme from our Winter 2024 issue: Europe’s lack of a geostrategy. 

In 2019, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called hers the EU’s first “geopolitical commission.” Since then, the EU has indeed started to act and think more geopolitically, especially in response to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Now, however, it urgently needs a strategy to live up to its geopolitical aspirations and strengthen Europe’s security. Our speakers suggest ways forward at this crucial junction for Europe.
