Ways out of the European-Cambodian Relations Crisis

Discussing solutions for the strained European-Cambodian relations

The roundtable will gather a selected group of experts from Cambodia and the EU in order to discuss the recent EBA withdrawal, future outlooks for Cambodia’s EBA status, how Europe’s relations with Cambodia can be improved through possible trust building activities and what impact the current relations will have on the ASEM meeting in May 2021 hosted by Cambodia. It is our aim to discuss and develop constructive and forward-looking approaches to improve and strengthen the relation between Cambodia and the EU.


Towards a more comprehensive EU Approach to engage with political parties

Expert discussion under Chatham House rule

Political parties are key instruments in achieving power in a representative democracy. This is the main reason why governments and political elites in all countries are highly sensitive to the cooperation of foreign actors with political parties. Understandably, these governments are opposed to outside influence affecting their domestic power structures. However, political parties are not just instruments to achieve power in a representative democracy. Their structures and activities are also highly relevant for the inclusivity and stability of a representative democracy. If they are disorganized or dysfunctional, the quality of the democratic order, including government accountability and the respect and promotion of human rights, is negatively affected. These two fundamental observations create a dilemma for the EU in its agenda to promote democracy and human rights in its external action: if the EU excludes political party cooperation from its programs and activities, it cannot achieve important objectives in the field of democracy and human rights. If the EU includes political party cooperation, it risks running into serious conflict with the respective host countries’ governments and political elites. Beyond democracy and human rights, EU engagement in political party cooperation can offer opportunities for promoting constructive partnerships in the areas of peace and security, climate change and disaster prevention, the management of migration, or other thematic fields. Political parties are the key channels through which current and future leaders develop both their understanding of policies and original ideas. Through political party cooperation programs, the EU and European stakeholders develop trusting and supportive relationships with future political leaders, irrespective of the ruling government and any potential political changes.


Supporting Participative Democracy at the Local Level: Solving local problems

Experiences from Ukraine and Moldova

Local authorities are facing challenges to deliver sustainable solutions for their communities in a differentiated society and complex environment aggravated by on-going global pandemic. Enhancing participative democracy is thus a key to jointly develop efficient tools and instruments. Through this project ALDA together with Local Democracy Agencies, local authorities and civil society increased capacities and enhanced knowledge on participative approaches to jointly develop sustainable solutions in the selected cities and communities in Ukraine and Moldova. The project successfully built upon a series of objectives: • Giving local authorities and civil society groups the means to address local problems with participative approaches and therefore identifying more sustainable, fair and inclusive solutions to the community problems. • Creating permanent and solid links between local authorities and civil society organizations in the communities/cities of the project. • Fostering a sense of ownership among local communities to solve local challenges. • Dissemination of best practices and results of the project to a wider and diverse audience. The event will present the project implemented over 2019 and 2020, its results and recommendations. The book reporting on the experience in Russian and English will be presented at this occasion. The recommendations will feed the discussion on democracy support and its implementation at the local level in the future action plans of the European Commission.


Co-ordination and trust-building in the Sahel-Region - a partnership in the making

SAHEL Security Digital Dialogue Series: Seminar #1

Following repeated calls for better coordination and cooperation by G5 Sahel member state representatives, analysts and civil society organisations and the creation of a Sahel Coalition by French President Macron, European Union Special Representative (EUSR) for the Sahel Ángel Losada recently stated that coordination will be amongst the top EU priorities for the region. As the EU prepares to release its renewed Sahel Strategy, we intend to unpack some of the priorities identified by the EUSR and discuss them with counterparts in the region. What has worked so far in terms of coordination? What is left to tackle? How can cooperation amongst very different actors be made more efficient in order to address some of the most pressing security threats in the Sahel?


EU's Connectivity Strategy with Japan

Norms and Standards towards Sustainability

The European Union has committed itself to cooperating with like-minded partners to promote a holistic and sustainable approach to connectivity – in fiscal, economic, social and environmental terms. Boosting connectivity across continents on the one hand requires vast investments. This financing need becomes particularly salient for the EU’s Strategy when put into perspective with competing connectivity schemes, such as China’s Belt and Road Initiative. On the other hand, connectivity is about setting norms and standards. As the world is getting ever more interconnected, governments have to set the legal and technical terms for future transport, energy, digital and people-to-people connectivity. In the future, political influence will to a large degree depend on an international actor’s ability to define and promote these standards. As the world’s biggest single market and transparent rule-making multilateral body, it is imperative for the EU to gain a leading role in this dimension of the global connectivity arena. In this session of the Indo-Pacific Roundtable Series, we pose the following questions: Where do we see the importance of norms and standards at work in specific connectivity projects? To what extent is the EU’s Connectivity Strategy centred on the promotion of norms and standards? In September 2019, the EU launched its “Partnership on Sustainable Connectivity and Quality Infrastructure” with Japan. What advantages does this partnership bring and which other schemes could the EU Strategy cooperate with? Is the promise of being part of a global community of shared norms and standards an attractive “selling point” for the EU’s Connectivity Strategy? If not, what would need to change about the Strategy and its communication? Can the EU hold true on its promise of being a driving force in the setting of norms and standards for future connectivity?


Ministerial Debate on circular economy in EU & Latin America, exploring how to create a global circular economy alliance

Online Event

At a time of economic crisis, the circular economy promises to hold some of the most tangible solutions for a sustainable recovery, both in the EU and Latin America. But how exactly can the circular economy contribute to "building back better" in both regions? What can Latin America learn from the European Green Deal and the EU's New Circular Economy Action Plan? And how can we strengthen cooperation between the EU and Latin America, creating an interregional circular economy alliance?


EU Trade Policy in Southeast Asia

Loosing credibility through double standards in Cambodia and Vietnam?

In the light of the global decline of multilateralism and the U.S.-China trade war, Southeast Asia is one of many regions where the European Union (EU) should act as a cooperative, value-based partner and promote free trade and democracy. The EU has committed itself to a new free trade agreement (FTA) with Vietnam but has on the other side partially withdrawn “Everything but Arms” trade preference (EBA) for products imported from Cambodia – in both cases the argument of human rights was brought forward. Economic and geopolitical interest of the EU in Vietnam as a partner in the region became evident.


Navigating Stormy Wheather: Dissecting the European and U.S. Contribution to Security and Stability in Iraq

In this seminar we stress the Iraqi perspective on European and U.S. security engagement in Iraq. The question at stake: What does Iraq need from its European and U.S. allies to succeed in protecting its people and securing its territorial integrity? How can Europe and the United States continue to contribute to the capacity building of the Iraqi security sector? On an international level, what are the common interests that would allow for a wider strategic Baghdad-Brussels-Washington partnership to ensure security, stability, and a geopolitical balance? Lastly, what could be the EU's input to the region—especially in light of the prospective results of the current U.S.-Iraqi strategic dialogue? Is Brussels prepared to take on greater responsibility?

Despite rather gloomy prospects for democratic transition in the EaP region, the EU is still a player capable of having a positive impact on developments in the region. CSOs remain the true allies of the EU in its Eastern Neighborhood to raise the voice for democratic transition. The future status of CS as an influential player counterbalancing the EaP states will determine countries’ political model in the region. Consequently, the KAS remains committed to supporting independent Civil Society in Eastern Europe to promote democratic transformation and European rapprochement of their countries.
