On May 23, 2017, the Valdai Discussion Club held an expert discussion with participation of Nathalie Tocci, Special Adviser to Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Deputy Director of Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI).
The European Union is experiencing a process of multilevel transformation. Simultaneously, the situation is changing in its individual countries, at the EU level, in the Union's neighbourhood and in the global context. The integration model itself is said to be exhausted and needs a profound revision. How do the EU institutions see the way toward consolidation on the international arena? Is the recent concept of a common EU foreign policy feasible? What is Russia's place in it?
These are the main topics of conversation between Fyodor Lukyanov, Research Director of the Valdai Discussion Club, and Nathalie Tocci, special adviser to Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
