“East is East and West is West, and never the two shall meet”, wrote Rudyard Kipling. Is this true also for international economic policy and security policy – that they are so different from each other that they never can meet?

Developments in Ukraine has put the question at the top of Europe’s agenda as it considers what economic actions, if any, to take in its response to Russia’s actions in Crimea. But it is an issue that has been building up for quite some time: does Europe have the foreign economic policy tools to leverage its economic power when security interests are at stake?

While Europe has practised economic statecraft through accessions to the European Union and increasingly wields its economic power to advance environmental goals, is it now time to put economic policy to use in the big security challenges of our time?

You are cordially invited to an event on Europe’s foreign economic policy with experts on security and international economic policies.
