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

The webinar was originally held on 28 October 10.00-11.00 GMT+2 and can be rewatched below. Enjoy!

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

The Netherlands and Denmark seem to be ever closer allies. During the summer, the two member states stood firmly together in their demand for extensive concessions to the multiannual budget and the recovery fond. Officials and experts point to the fact that the Netherlands and Denmark often contact each other on European affairs.

But just how close is the Dutch-Danish relationship in practice? How permanent an alliance is The Frugals? And which policy areas could be targets for further cooperation?

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 the Netherlands as a Danish EU-ally.

Director Lykke Friis will interview Dutch journalist and European correspondent Caroline de Gruyter.

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