This is the second in a three-part series of events with the European Movement Ireland offering a range of different perspectives on the issues and opportunities that impact Ireland and its global relationships. Featuring high-level speakers, these events will focus on areas for potential cooperation, mutual challenges and practical solutions.

Ireland’s seat on the UN Security Council presents major opportunity for it to shape multilateral developments. The EU and its member states, including Germany, continue to defend and advance principles of global cooperation while the Biden Presidency has renewed America’s commitment.
