Germany Listening – A Lecture with Nathalie Tocci
Nathalie Tocci, Director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali in Rome, will deliver a lecture on 25 November 2019
“Making Multilateralism Great Again in the Digital Era: What role can the EU play?” Under this heading, Nathalie Tocci, Director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali, will hold a lecture as part of the series “Germany Listening”. On 25 November, Tocci will address the question of Europe’s present and future role as a multilateral agenda-shaper in a world order that faces new opportunities and serious challenges as a consequence of digitalization.
In addition to her position at the Istituto Affari Internazionali, Dr Tocci is Honorary Professor at the University of Tübingen as well as Special Adviser to Frederica Mogherini, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy until November 2019, on behalf of whom she authored the EU Global Strategy (2016). She has been working on its implementation ever since, notably in the field of security and defence. In her lecture, she will also take stock of what has and has not been accomplished since the publication of the Strategy.
“Germany Listening” is a series of lectures jointly organized by Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and the Master of Arts International Relations offered by the Free University of Berlin, Humboldt University Berlin and the University of Potsdam. Following the central idea of “Germany Listening”, Nathalie Tocci is also asked to explain her views on Germany’s particular role with regard to the questions at issue, especially taking into consideration the fact that Germany may be the most powerful EU member state in general but a laggard when it comes to digitalization. What are her expectations for the upcoming German presidency of the Council of the European Union? Could Germany contribute to ‘making multilateralism great again in the digital era’ during this time? Following her lecture, Nathalie Tocci will discuss these and other questions with the attendees.
