Welcome to #EUIA23

The European Union in International Affairs (EUIA) Conference is a major forum for academics and policymakers to debate the role of the EU in addressing global challenges. The eighth edition (#EUIA23) of this conference took place in Brussels on 3-5 May 2023 and focused on the theme Europe’s Pathways to (Dis)Engagement with the World. It featured roughly 400 participants from more than 40 countries for a programme of over 50 academic panels. #EUIA23 also included a keynote lecture by the Chairman of the EU Military Committee; a range of policy-link panels on EU-Africa relations as well as defence cooperation in Europe; and a debate of the editors of leading academic journals in the field of EU foreign policy-making.
