Crisis, Conflict and Critical Diplomacy: Narratives and Perceptions of the EU in Ukraine, Israel and Palestine
Tuesday, 17 April | 14.00 - 15.30
Natalia Chaban, Professor of European Union Studies, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
Ben O'Loughlin, Professor of International Relations, Royal Holloway University of London
Patrick Müller, Ikerbasque Research Fellow, University of the Basque Country, Spain
Yossi Mekelberg, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
Chatham House | 10 St James's Square | London | SW1Y 4LE
This roundtable will explore findings from a Jean Monnet-funded 3-year study of strategic narratives and perceptions of the EU in two conflict spaces, Ukraine and Israel-Palestine. By identifying how different local actors (elites, media and youth) narrate the international system and the role of their nation in it, is it possible to explain how and why they offer specific narratives about future prospects for peace and the EU’s role as potential mediator?
The roundtable will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
