Four years after establishment of the European External Action Service (EEAS) the European Union still lacks a clear vision for the type and nature of the European diplomatic service and its architecture at the turn of the 21st century.

These and other issues related to strengthening the global role and regional priorities of the European diplomacy will be discussed at the event.
