Why the EU needs a Geopolitical Commission

Improving global governance
Posted Sep 29, 2020 | Center for European Policy Studies, Steven Blockmans

In a world dominated by Sino-American rivalry, there is a space for a third way - one that is defined by the EU in alliance with like-minded states and organisations - argues Steven Blockmans in this article for the Center for European Policy Studies. Rather than recoil from the rhetoric needed to defend and promote the EU’s position on the international stage, President von der Leyen should shape a geopolitical discourse for the Union and profile the Commission’s role in traditional areas of high politics. She should initiate a review of the 2016 Global Strategy to frame a European narrative for tomorrow’s power politics. The Commission should also draft a European industrial strategy to raise awareness about technological competition and offer guidance to the Union’s efforts to determine the outcomes of the fourth industrial revolution.
