Objetivo

This webinar is part of an alliance between the Jean Monnet Atlantic Network 2.0 and EU-LAC Foundation with the aim of promoting a high-level debate on the potential contribution of the countries and regions of the Atlantic Basin to multilateralism in key aspects to face the global challenges in the post-pandemic scenario.

The webinar consists of four sessions that address different issues of global challenges and the responses that are being promoted from the international community. The first block, led by EU-LAC Foundation, asks about the different perceptions and perspectives of the different regions in reference to the renewal of the multilateral system in a global way. The other three sessions correspond to challenges related to the three thematic pillars of the Jean Monnet Atlantic Network; the second panel analyses the regional visions on the commitments in the fight against climate change and specifically the expectations before the COP26 of November 2021; the third panel focuses on the results of the NATO Summit and its impact on the transatlantic security agenda; and the fourth panel analyses the challenges of the post-pandemic recovery in terms of sustainability.

>> The webinar will be streamed live at CIDOB’s Youtube channel.

The COP26 to be held in Glasgow in November 2021 will be the moment when all the countries committed to the fight against climate change will make their proposals for the goals to be achieved to stop climate change. How will the different regions of the Atlantic position themselves? What are the goals they will commit to? With which resources and projects do they plan to achieve the objectives?

16.00 – 17.30   Panel 3. Is the 2021 NATO Summit the turning point for the revitalization of the Transatlantic Security Agenda with a global vision?

During the four years of Trump's presidency, the transatlantic Security agenda fell into its lowest hours. Biden has set out to revitalize relationships, but what are the challenges of that new agenda? How will the new threats that transcend the traditional transatlantic geography be responded to? How does that affect cooperation in the Atlantic area? The results of the NATO Summit in June 2021 help us to analyse some of these issues.
