As the new EU leadership team prepares to take office in Brussels, we’ve joined forces with our partners in the European Think Tanks Group (ETTG) with our latest publication: ‘Our Collective Interest: Why Europe’s problems need global solutions and global problems need European action’.
In this report, 28 authors from the four think tanks argue that the EU’s ambitions for its own citizens – for prosperity, peace and environmental sustainability – cannot be divorced from its global responsibilities and opportunities. A collective effort is in our shared interest.
We identified five global problems which will shape the future of the EU and the world, and where the EU has a comparative advantage to act:
- The world economy
- Environmental sustainability
- Peace and security
- Democracy and human rights
- Poverty and inequality.
