On 7 February, Brussels e-briefings host and DiploFoundation fellow Richard Werly led an online talk on the diplomatic challenges that the EU will face in 2011.
The Brussels-based correspondent for Le Temps discussed the EU’s policy in the light of recent turmoil in Tunisia and Egypt. The EU faces the challenge of making itself heard in the Middle East, at a time where not every European country shares the same concerns about this troubled region. At the same time, the European External Action Service, criticised across European media, needs time to strengthen its capabilities.
