Foreign policy is back on Europe's agenda. Two high-profile foreign policy successes – on Kosovo and Iran – are a powerful illustration of how Europe can achieve remarkable results when member states and EU institutions work hand in hand. Both of those achievements are the result of a long process that began years ago. The 2014 edition of ECFR's Scorecard also shows – apart from those successes – that Europe struggled to stabilise its own neighbourhood: The crisis in Syria worsened, the EU's neighbourhood policy remained ineffective in countries such as Egypt, and Europe found itself increasingly at odds with Russia.

Italy made a remarkable comeback in 2013 by re-engaging with foreign policy issues ranging from the neighbourhood to development cooperation, leading Europe on 9 components. 

The event will take place at 3pm in Spazio Europa, Via IV Novembre 149, Rome (ground floor)
