Webinar on Denmark's coalition partners after Brexit and during Covid-19

The webinar is free of charge upon registration here. Follow the event on 11 November 10.00-11.00 GMT+2. The event is hosted in English.

Brexit has changed the balance of power in the EU. Consequently, Denmark is looking for new coalition partners.

Ireland and Denmark are both Northern European small states among major players in the EU. Both have lost a close EU-ally post-Brexit. According to a recent survey, Denmark is one of the countries that Ireland contacts the most on European affairs. But, in contrast, Ireland does not seem to be as high on the radar in Copenhagen.

Is there potential for closer cooperation? What divides and unites? And how bright is the future of small states in a union now dominated by the Franco-German motor?

Think Tank EUROPA and our strategic partner, European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), who has carried out a comprehensive mapping of coalition patterns among EU member states, invite you to a virtual talk with emphasis on Ireland as a potential Danish EU-ally.

Director Lykke Friis interviews the Brigid Laffan, the Irish director of the Schuman Centre at the European University Institute. 

The webinar is co-sponsored by Europa-Nævnet and is the fifth and final episode in our series on Denmark’s search for new coalition partners within the EU. Please visit our website for more information.
