ValEUs: Research and Education Network on Contestations to EU Foreign Policy

12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
Event Status
As Scheduled

University of Pittsburgh faculty and graduate students are invited to join the ValEUs network for the 2nd Provocation in our series. As geopolitical actor Europe aspires to empire/has fallen into insignificance. What are the enduring legacies of European empires in formulating EU foreign policy? To what extent are current EU values perceived as rooted in imperial and colonial histories? Europe as such has no military thus the European response to the war in Ukraine takes place primarily through NATO; does that diminish the EU's geo-political significance? A great deal of the power of the EU is soft power; is soft power a good venue to convey values, or is soft power its own vale? How do world crises reveal the significance or insignificance of EU values?
