5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
European diplomacy, composed of both Member States’ diplomatic services and the EU, represents an interesting experiment that challenges our understanding of diplomacy. This talk will first provide an overview of what diplomacy is and does, before analysing how the European Union works and how its various parts coordinate (or don’t). The focus will then shift to current challenges and their impact on the European and EU context.
Federica Bicchi is Associate Professor in the Department of International Relations of the London School of Economics and Political Science as well as Part-Time Professor in the Robert Schuman Centre of the European University Institute in Florence.
