As a global actor, the European Union faces major challenges and opportunities. In his address to the IIEA, Dr Powell explored the Union’s role in an increasingly volatile and unpredictable world, in which the survival of the rules-based international order that has served Europe so well can no longer be taken for granted. In particular, he examined how the EU should respond to the growing US-China rivalry, the future of the transatlantic relationship, and the debate over ‘strategic autonomy’. Dr Powell also reviewed Spain’s contribution to the EU’s efforts to establish itself as a relevant and credible global actor.
