This online EPC Update examined how 2024's global elections may affect Europe's future. How will the European Parliament elections in June affect the EU's ability to respond to the many challenges it faces at the European and global level? What implications might they have for the Parliament and the EU's overall functioning, particularly in light of potential enlargement to 30+ member states? What priorities will the European Council's 2024-2029 Strategic Agenda and the next Commission focus on, and how ambitious are they likely to be, especially on security and defence? How will the outcome of the US presidential elections influence the Union's future geopolitical and geoeconomic role, specifically vis-a-vis the war in Ukraine, the future of NATO, international trade and security, the situation in the Middle East, and relations with China?

Speakers: Ricardo Borges de Castro, Associate Director & Head of Programme, European Policy Centre; Fabian Zuleeg, Chief Executive, European Policy Centre; Janis A. Emmanouilidis, Director of Studies, European Policy Centre

Moderator: Jacki Davis, Senior Adviser, European Policy Centre
