The European order

August 24 Friday


August 24 - 26, 2018


University of Cambridge



Europe has always been shaped by an order – or orders. Historically, most of these have been internal to the continent, though over the past one hundred years external powers have become more prominent.

Today, we once again find ourselves in the force-field of competing orders: the European Union, Brexiting Britain, Trump’s USA, Putin’s Russia and the PRC. Most of these actors are themselves internally conflicted about their place in the world and attitude to Europe. NATO and the Schengen Area struggle to cope with the interlocking challenges of territorial aggression, terror and migration. At this time of exceptional flux, a group of leading historians, politicians, analysts and businessmen come together to discuss the European Order under the auspices of the Project for Democratic Union, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Forum on Geopolitics at Cambridge.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only
