Europe in the World

Amsterdam Centre for European Studies - ACES

Europe in the World addresses Europe’s multiple interactions in a transnational setting. Topics range from the EU's formal external relations and questions about its border management and migration policies, to its postcolonial ties and the mobility of people, goods, and ideas connecting the continent to the wider world.

The Theme Group engages a range of transnational problems and processes, including global challenges such as energy transition, climate change, human rights and the rule of law, security and sustainability, inquiring in which domains the EU pursues its ambitions while being attentive to the limitations of Europe’s power vis-à-vis other regional and global players. It also examines EU external relations more narrowly understood, including EU civilian and military missions, enlargement geopolitics and wider political, economic and cultural engagement with countries in its so-called southern and eastern neighbourhoods.
