EUROPE AND WAR IN UKRAINE: CLEMENT BEAUNE SHARES HIS ANALYSIS
Clément Beaune, Minister of State for European Affairs, was the guest of (Sciences Po) School of Public Affairs on the 16th of March to discuss the role of the current French presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) and more particularly, in the geopolitical context we are experiencing today, with the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
This conference was part of the European Seminar series of conferences of the Master in European Affairs and more broadly part of a series of events organised by Sciences Po's schools and research centres aimed at shedding academic light on the analysis of the war in Ukraine. As recalled by Philippe Martin, dean of the School of Public Affairs, the academic community of Sciences Po offers its expertise on the economic, financial, humanitarian, strategic and now European dimensions of the conflict, with the presentation given by Clément Beaune. Moderated by Olivier Rozenberg, associate professor at the Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics at Sciences Po and scientific advisor for the Master in European Affairs at the School of Public Affairs, this conference allowed for a lively and engaging exchange between the guest speaker and the students.
"Nostalgic and moved" to speak from the pulpit of the Boutmy, an amphitheatre that he knew so well during his student years on rue Saint Guillaume, the Minister of State showed a certain degree of caution in the face of the magnitude of the dangers that threaten Europe and in particular the war in Ukraine. "My message is perhaps a message of humility or incertitude, nevertheless this is also the purpose of an academic environment, we must try at all times, even when news hits us, to think, to reflect. I will try to do so with you".
