A Unifying Presidency Amid an Unprecedented Crisis: Evaluating the German Council Presidency
GLOBSEC, together with Hanns Seidel Stiftung Slovakia, is organizing a discussion looking into the recent German Council Presidency.

Council presidencies often fail to generate great attention; however, the German presidency came in a time of extraordinary circumstances with the COVID-19 pandemic, the new EU budget and recovery fund negotiations, and Brexit to name a few. The pressures on this presidency were significant.
• What was achieved and what opportunities were missed during the presidency?
• How did the German Council presidency perform through the Central and Eastern European lenses?
• Passing the baton to Portugal. What is next for Germany, CEE and Europe?

Speakers:
Barbara WOLF, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Slovak Republic, Germany
Ionela Maria CIOLAN, Researcher, Center for Strategic Studies, National University of Political Studies and Public Administration, Romania
Tereza NOVOTNA, Senior Research Fellow, EUROPEUM and Free University Berlin, Czech Republic
Paul SCHMIDT, Secretary General, Austrian Society for European Politics, Austria
Marcin ZABOROWSKI, Editor in-chief, Res Publica Nowa and former Director of the Polish Institute for International Affairs, Poland

Moderator: Vladislava GUBALOVA, Research Fellow, GLOBSEC Policy Institute
