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

The webinar was originally held on 24 September 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.

Poland is the biggest non-euro country in the EU, has the highest growth rates in 2020, and ranks in the top-10 of the largest recipients of Danish exports. In other words, an obvious partner.

Nevertheless, climate policy and disagreements over the rule of law may impose some limits. To what extent can Denmark and Poland find common ground in the EU? How is the current relationship? And what is the potential for closer 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 Poland as a potential Danish EU-ally.

Director Lykke Friis will interview Piotr Buras, expert on Poland and head of the ECFR Warsaw office.

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