In 2021, the European External Action Service (EEAS) has contributed to forging EU foreign policy for 10 years. In connection with the tenth anniversary of the Service, three organisations, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies (SIEPS), have produced a report that reappraises the EEAS’ mission.
The report was published in January and will be discussed at an event taking place on 10 May, at 17:30–18:45. Register here.
The content of the report is presented by Pierre Vimont, first Executive Secretary General of the EEAS, and Ronja Kempin, Senior Fellow German Institute for International and Security Affairs, and commented by Niels Annen, Minister of State at the Federal Foreign Office, Germany.
The publication is the final output of a task force process – a structured dialogue among experts – and authored by Christophe Hillion at Sieps and Steven Blockmans at CEPS.
