The European Union in a Globalized World – Strategic Prospects

Economy Events


Project Period:
16 March 2012


At a time of great changes in the world, the economic and financial crisis has put Europe at the forefront, giving sometimes the impression of a European decline. The EU has reacted on the basis of its founding principles: responsibility, solidarity, convergence and improved governance. Consequently the current stage of the construction of the European Union will end up with more and a better Europe. Similarly, the EU is convinced that the challenges the world is facing call for more international coordination, in which ASEM countries have an important role to play.

What is the EU’s role in a globalized world? What are the strategic prospects for the EU in the time of the economic crisis? Ambassador Pierre Sellal, Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of France, addressed these questions at the public lecture on 16 March 2012 at the Asia-Europe Foundation, organised by ASEF in partnership with the Embassy of France in Singapore.
