About the project:
The aim of the project is to consolidate and strengthen the EU’s foreign and security policy in a complex, fast-moving and controversial environment. JOINT participants explore how intra-EU rivalry, regional fragmentation and multipolar competition affect the EU’s ability to set foreign and security policy objectives; generate and combine diplomatic, military, economic and other dimensions of competencies to overcome conflicts, crises and interaction with external players.
Within the project, School for Policy Analysis NaUKMA articulates how increasingly multipolar competition constrains a more joined-up and sustainable EU Foreign and
Security Policy (EUFSP) towards Ukraine, Iran and the South China Sea. The research team also extracts from the case studies recommendations geared towards reducing the impact of multipolar competition on EU foreign and security policy.
