Europe today is confronted by an unprecedented set of external challenges. In recent years European resilience has been tested in the face of economic turmoil and geopolitical shifts. The workshop will explore how the European Union can shape relations with its border regions (Russia/Ukraine, Turkey, North Africa and the Middle East), and the core regions of the world economy (North America and East Asia). Global Economy Program Director Domenico Lombardi will participate in the event.
Domenico Lombardi is the former director of the Global Economy Program and a former member of the executive management committee at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). He serves on the advisory boards of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the Bretton Woods Committee in Washington, and is a member of the Steering Committee of the Asian Economic Panel.
