2020 AS A STRESS TEST FOR THE EUROPEAN UNION: CHALLENGES IN TIMES OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

 

Within the framework of the German-Nordic-Baltic Forum (GNBF), we would like to discuss current European topics that are of relevance for the German-Nordic-Baltic region particularly in view of internal and external challenges in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The digital Forum will be kicked off by two public keynotes from the Finnish Minister for European Affairs and Ownership Steering, Tytti Tuppurainen, Prime Minister’s Office and the German Minister of State for Europe at the Federal Foreign Office, Michael Roth, followed by three commentaries from young researchers and students. Afterwards the floor will be opened for questions. The Opening Discussion will be moderated by Dr. Funda Tekin, Director at IEP.

The webinar is organized in cooperation with the Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP).
