The EU’s High Representative, Josep Borrell, and Mark Leonard discussed why strategic autonomy matters, looking at ECFR’s major contribution to the debate – Sovereign Europe, dangerous world: Five agendas to protect Europe’s capacity to act – as well as the three regions where Europe’s strategic interests are most at stake: Asia, the Eastern Neighbourhood, and the Southern Neighbourhood.

Together, they explored how 2021 will mark a new phase for the EU and its members, while demonstrating how Europe can be an effective partner for the new Biden administration.
