RSIS Distinguished Public Lecture by Her Excellency Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy; and Vice-President of the European Commission.

In her first public lecture in Singapore, the European Union’s foreign policy chief and Vice-President of the European Commission, H.E. Federica Mogherini, will engage with students on the EU’s place amidst an increasingly volatile international order and will discuss the ways in which the EU continues to develop enduring partnerships across the globe.

The EU High Representative/Vice-President, who is participating in the ASEAN Regional Forum in Singapore, will address some of the challenges facing the world today, including regional conflicts, nuclear proliferation, and migration, as well as the need to defend and support the rules-based multilateral system, open and fair trade, and sustainable development.

With Singapore currently holding the chairmanship of ASEAN and taking on the role of EU-ASEAN Coordinator in August, Federica Mogherini will also outline the European Union’s increased engagement with Asian partners over the past years, particularly on climate change, connectivity and security, as well as discuss opportunities for enhanced cooperation in the future.
