GLOBUS concluding conference: Reconsidering European contributions to global justice

GLOBUS researchers presented key findings from the project and reflected on the EU's global role and future research in a webinar on 28 May 2020.

Since its inception the European Union has proclaimed an ambition to promote justice at the global level. But what precisely is the contribution of the European Union? In this conference, we presented key findings from the GLOBUS project. We further discussed the significance of the reinforced contestation of global norms for the EU’s ability to pursue a value-based foreign policy. What are the key concerns that arise from research in GLOBUS? What new issues and challenges have arisen since the start of the project in 2016 and how should we address them in our research?
