Cambridge Immerse Global Leadership Seminar: Assessing a more interest-driven Europe in an increasingly insecure world

On 5 July 2018, I was providing a one-day training for 17-18 students in the framework of the Cambridge Immerse Global Leadership Summer School. In 2 x 2h sessions we were investigating the EU´s changing role in the world, after identifying key concepts such as “foreign policy”, “successful foreign policy”, “effectiveness etc. We also investigated the current EU global strategy in terms of how well it meets what students think are the most pressing issues of the next decades for European foreign policy. What creative and engaging minds!

In preparation I asked students about their views on foreign policy. The task sheet can be downloaded here.
