EU Trade Policy in Southeast Asia
Losing 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 The EU has committed itself to a new free trade agreement (FTA) with Vietnam but has on the other side partially withdrawn “Everything but Arms” trade preference (EBA) for products imported from Cambodia – in both cases the argument of human rights was brought forward.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?

Watchdog Asia Network Launch
Investigative journalism in Asia faces a number of challenges. With journalists being threatened and attacked and criminal libel laws frequently being used against them, the press freedom index across the continent remains low. As an answer to these various challenges, Watchdog Asia was founded in 2016 to support, promote and actively produce investigative journalism and ethical reporting across Asia. The network of senior journalists and editors from various Asian countries aims at strengthening independent cross-border and data-driven journalism by providing resources and networking opportunities to investigative journalists in Asia. The launch event will be an opportunity for an exclusive group of senior journalists, editors, think tank representatives and European officials to learn about Watchdog Asia's work and the existing challenges to investigative journalism across Asia. A light dinner and drinks will be provided.
