EU as a global actor in sustainability policy

, Hungary

7-8 May 2020

The EU is traditionally considered as a 'leader' in environmental politics and has committed itself to promoting sustainable development internally and externally. This commitment manifests itself in various EU standards and policies concerning the environment, but also other sectors. Hence, we embrace a comprehensive understanding of 'sustainability policy', including a broad range of related policies such as energy, climate, waste, water, transport, security, trade etc.

 The interdisciplinary research workshop aims to bring together scholars and practitioners in the field to focus on analysing the external dimension of EU sustainability policy. The workshop seeks to critically address research questions such as the following: How is the EU contributing to (or undermining) sustainable development beyond its borders? How are sustainability concerns integrated in EU foreign policies towards neighbouring countries and other world regions? What is the EU's role in the global energy transition? How is the EU performing in bilateral and multilateral negotiations? And finally, what are the repercussions of EU external sustainability policy for European integration?The EU is traditionally considered as a 'leader' in environmental politics and has committed itself to promoting sustainable development internally and externally.
