The Department of Political Science of University of Lund (Sweden) organised public Symposium “The EU and the Emerging Global Order” on 1 December, 2018. 

The symposium attracted experts, academics and students who deal with international relations, foreign policy and diplomacy. Symposium, in honour of Prof Ole Elgström, a leading authority in the study of EU foreign policy, discussed several key themes: identity and power in European foreign policy, the EU in transatlantic relations, EU external perceptions, EU global actorness. It featured four invited plenaries: by Prof Knud Erik Jørgensen (Aarhus University, Denmark), Prof Michael Smith (University of Warwick, UK), Prof Lisbeth Aggestam (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) and Prof Natalia Chaban (C3EU project leader from the University of Canterbury, NZ).

Prof Chaban presented key findings of the C3EU Network and discussed EU perceptions in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood (focus on Ukraine and Russia). In her plenary talk, she elaborated the case of EU images in Ukrainian vs. Russian media in the context of Brexit. Prof Chaban was invited to contribute a chapter based on her presentation co-authored with Prof Ole Elstrom in the edited volume, the main outcome of the Symposium.
