CEPS Project

Mega-Regions and European Security


In partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung’s Regional Office for Cooperation and Peace in Europe (FES ROCPE), CEPS is proud to launch its Mega-Regions and European Security project.

Recent years have witnessed differences in interests and strategy between the United States and the European Union as it relates to the emerging ‘mega-regions’ of Eurasia and the Indo-Pacific, but also a renewed sense of unity and purpose following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Through a series of workshops and publications, this project aims to explore the consequences of these dynamics for the transatlantic alliance and, by extension, for security in wider Europe. Phase 1 of the project brings together experts on Asia, Eurasia and the transatlantic partnership to probe ‘mega-regional’ developments and the evolving character of Canada-US-EU relations through a series of virtual meetings, whereas Phase 2 will focus on the implications for the OSCE region at an in-person workshop in Vienna hosted by FES ROCPE. Project participants will then have a chance to contribute as well to CEPS’ work on European strategic autonomy in 2023 as part of the Euro-Atlantic Triangle project.
