And yet, after a decision by the American president to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran, the Europeans were hit by new extraterritorial US sanctions on 4November. What a shallow sovereignty! Under such conditions, should the European Union, in the name of its own sovereignty, call into question the practice that the United States has taken it upon itself to make decisions for the rest of the world? If yes, how? If no, what should be done?
The press conference will take place at the Press Club, Brussels, in presence of :
- Marie-Hélène Bérard, investment banker
- Pascal Lamy, President emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute, former general-director of the WTO
- Farid Fatah, Ph.D. candidate in Law
For more information, we invite to consult the Policy paper “EU and US sanctions: which sovereignty?“
