Warsaw – ESI at panel discussion on EU cohesion
ESI’s Gerald Knaus was invited to participate in a panel discussion on “How to stitch together the European Union” organised by Polityka Insight.
In his speech, Gerald outlined what Poland and the EU should do this winter for Ukraine and Moldova. Gerald’s suggestions focused on more funding for both countries and offering them a credible EU accession process. Moreover, he argued that the EU should supply Ukraine with more weapons to defend itself against the Russian aggression.
Gerald added that we’ve had 2 Europe’s in the last 30 years: one Europe of constant war and we had a Europe in which war was unthinkable. The Europe in which war was unthinkable has taken this for granted.
The debate also focused on the unity of the EU in the face of war in Ukraine, leadership of the EU and a new balance of power, reform and enlargement, and the role of the EU in the world.
The other panelists were Piotr Arak (Director, Polish Economic Institute), Jaroslav Kurfürst, (Deputy Minister, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Czech Republic), Zaki Laïdi (Senior Adviser to the High Representative and Vice President of the European Commission). The panel was moderated by Magdalena Cedro (Senior Analyst for European Affairs, Polityka Insight).
