The Threats to the European Union’s Economic Sovereignty

Improving global governance
Posted Aug 14, 2019 | EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy

Economics used to play a limited role in foreign policy, which focused on the risk and avoidance of wars, conflicts and human disasters. But neither China nor the United States now separates economics from geopolitics. This threatens the multilateral system that the European Union has relied on for nearly seven decades and the EU’s separation of external economic relationships from geopolitics. In this memo for the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Jean Pisani-Ferry and Guntram Wolff describe growing interlinkages between economics and power politics, the need to reinforce and defend Europe’s economic sovereignty, and the instruments it needs to defend and promote it.
