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.

Climate Club Formation: EU - India Steel Case Study

Lessons learned from the steel decarbonization workshop.

As an initial pilot to support the formation of the Climate Club, the GCA Collaborative, an independent global research initiative, conducted two workshops on decarbonizing the steel sector. These workshops engaged policymakers, associations, businesses, and sector analysts. Key outcomes: The SWGs must collaborate with a host of stakeholders, including businesses, governments, regulators, and civil society organizations, among others. Countries can focus on their sectors of choice -those where they can maximize emissions reductions, given their capabilities and commitments. Through these sectoral working groups, countries motivated to achieve climate neutrality in core sectors - such as steel, aluminum, cement, fertilizers, and automotive - can closely cooperate, including aligning decarbonization pathways. This paper summarizes the lessons learned from the steel decarbonization workshop, highlighting potential areas of cooperation between the steel sectors in India and the EU.
