[Full title] Towards strategic autonomy in European security and defence: The EU role in promoting peace in today’s world

[...] It sees itself, and is widely seen by others, as a unique global actor, seeking to pursue an integrated and cooperative approach on the international stage. How should the EU's strategy evolve in the face of current pressures? Can the EU integrate its 'strategic autonomy' ambitions with its challenging global engagement? Is the EU equipped to face a series of threats that have only intensified as a result of the pandemic?
This EPRS policy roundtable will address these questions from different perspectives. Our panel of experts will include Arnout Molenaar (Head of Unit, Security and Defence Policy Division, European External Action Service), Jana Puglierin (Director, Berlin Office and Senior Policy Fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations), and Elena Lazarou (EPRS, Acting Head of External Policies Unit). The EPRS' annual flagship publication in this field, 'Peace and Security Outlook 2020', will also be presented.
