Indo-Pacific Roundtable Series
The Indo-Pacific Roundtable Series brings senior policy makers and experts from the region to Brussels for invitation-only, roundtable discussions covering a wide range of economic, foreign and security policy issues.

In its first year, the Series will focus on the topic of connectivity and how countries are seeking to build infrastructure and networks connecting the Indo-Pacific. The Indo-Pacific Roundtable Series is a joint initiative of The German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. The first discussion will focus on connectivity in South Asia, how countries in the region are increasing integration and responding to the COVID19 crisis, and the future of Europe-India cooperation on connectivity issues.

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.

It aims at strengthening independent cross-border, investigative, and data-driven journalism in Asia. It also provides resources and networking opportunities to investigative journalists in Asia and a platform to cooperate with other investigative journalism networks globally.
Libya, Towards a War of Attrition
Four months after Khalifa Haftar and his Libyan National Army (LNA) began the offensive on Tripoli to seize control of the capital from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), Western Libya is caught in a war of attrition. The conflict has become bogged down in a stalemate on the capital's outskirts. The involvment of external forces has further fueled the conflict. Whilst the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have supported the LNA's military activities, Turkey, and Qatar have supported the GNA and helped the UN-backed government resist Haftar's territorial offensives. With France supportive of the LNA and Italy siding with the GNA, there has been no common EU position. UN-backed plans for elections to install a new government overseeing all of Libya have so far failed, and it remains unclear whether any of the country's well-armed factions would respect any results. According to the WHO the new conflict has left 1,093 people dead and 120,000 displaced and provoked sharp rifts within and among communities in western Libya, and deepened the divide between the eastern and western parts of the country. What are the prospects for Libya's conflict? What is the potential impact of a Libyan war of attrition on Europe? What is the role of the EU and its member states in potentially ending the conflict?
