FEPS HQ, Brussels (Expert meeting)

The issues of the prospects for (de-)globalisation, the scope for cooperation to prevent unilateral trade measures, and the balance between resilience and efficiency in strengthening global supply chains will the at the centre of the discussion in this next expert roundtable. 

In partnership with the Renner Institute and the Olof Palme International Center, we have launched the Foresight project ‘The long-term implications of the war in Ukraine‘ to reflect on the mid-to-long-term consequences of the conflict at Europe’s doorsteps. This project consists of a series of high-level expert roundtables, each addressing the impact of the war in Ukraine on distinct aspects of the international agenda and the international order at large. Previous expert roundtables within the foresight series addressed the long-term implications of the war on the green transition and on global governance. 

To bring in the foresight perspective, the participants are invited to address what factors and actors will shape developments ahead, uncertainties and potential wild cards, as well as implications for the EU.

The discussion will be divided into two sessions, where all participants will have the opportunity to take part in an interactive debate.

  • The first session will be dedicated to assessing the long-term implications of the war for global trade governance and for the strategies of the main trade powers.
  • The second session will address the key variables affecting the future shape, vulnerabilities, and resilience of global supply chains.

The expert closed-door roundtable will take place on  Wednesday, 15 February, from 13:30 to 17:10, at FEPS headquarters  located on Avenue des Arts 46, 5th floor, 1000 Brussels. The Chatham House rule will apply. Some participants who are not based in Brussels will have the possibility to participate remotely. The meeting will start with a light lunch.
