1:30 – 3:00 pm Roundtable & Discussion

The European Union’s neighborhood is increasingly characterized by two main sources of risks: (1) Areas of limited statehood, where central government authorities are too weak to ensure a monopoly over the means of violence and enforce the rule of law and (2) contested orders, where state, non-state and transnational actors and networks challenge the norms, principles, and rules that societies and political systems are based on. These risks can amount to severe threats for the EU, if they deteriorate into governance breakdown and violent conflict.
