The ‘European Union in International Affairs’ (EUIA) Conference provides a major forum for academics and policy-makers to debate the role of the EU in the turbulent realm of international affairs. The seventh edition of this event will take place from 27 to 29 May 2020 and focus on the theme ‘Assessing the EU’s Capacity to Act’. #EUIA20 will be the single major stopover of the academic conference circuit in Brussels.

#EUIA20 will host high-level keynote addresses and will mark the 42nd anniversary of the Journal of European Integration (JEI) by hosting the JEI Annual Lecture. A selection of the EUIA best papers will be published in a themed JEI section or special issue.
