The State of the (European) Union: The Building of a New Global Order — A No Holds Barred Conversation with HR/VP Josep Borrell Fontelles

On behalf of the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at New York University School of Law, you are cordially invited to attend the Sixteenth Annual Emile Noël Lecture on the State of the (European) Union on Wednesday 20 September at 5:30 p.m. in Tishman Auditorium, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South, New York, NY.

The Building of a New Global Order — A No Holds Barred Conversation with Josep Borrell Fontelles, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission.

It is hard to remember a time when the challenges to the world order were as daunting as they are today. The Russian aggression in Ukraine, USA-China-Taiwan, the new geopolitics of the Global South, a fraught international trading system, the never-ending Middle East quagmire, sliding democracies are just a few highlights or lowlights.  It is also hard to remember a time where the presence (and absence?) of the European Union as an international actor was so strongly felt.

Josep Borrell, the High Representative (Foreign Minister in normal parlance) of the EU in conversation with University Professor J.H.H. Weiler will touch on these points and more.

A reception will immediately follow the lecture.
