On 17-18th October, DG Education and Culture hosted the 2016 Jean Monnet/ECSA Conference in Brussels. This year's theme was "Global Governance in times of Global Challenges", based on the recently adopted European Union Global Strategy, with plenary sessions on peace and security, prosperity, and democracy. The 250 attendees consisted of representatives of the Jean Monnet community – professors and researchers who teach EU studies and come from all around the world, and who together constitute a unique pool of knowledge when it comes to EU matters. Speakers included Mr. Tibor Navaracsics, European Commissioner for Education and Culture, and Ms. Nathalie Tocci, Special advisor to EU High Representative Federica Mogherini.
The EU Global Strategy was adopted in June and sets out the key priorities for EU external action for years to come. Watch the video here.
