Brussels, 4 April 2019 – EU and US sanctions: which sovereignty ?


08:30 > 09:15


A few weeks before the European elections , the Jacques Delors Institute presents to the press its Policy Paper "EU and US sanctions: which sovereignty?", signed by Pascal Lamy, Marie-Hélène Bérard, Farid Fatah, Louis Schweitzer and Pierre Vimont.

On November the 4th, Europeans were hit by new US extraterritorial sanctions following the withdrawal of the United States from the Nuclear Agreement with Iran. What a shallow sovereignty! In these circumstances, should the European Union, in the name of its sovereignty, question the practice that the United States has granted itself to decide alone for the rest of the world? If yes, how ? If no, what to do?

The Jacques Delors Institute presents its Policy Paper “Europe against US sanctions, what sovereignty? “.

The press conference will be held at the Press Club, Brussels, in the presence of:
Pascal Lamy, President emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute, former director of the WTO
Pierre Vimont, senior fellow Carnegie Europe, former Executive Secretary General of the European Service for outdoor action
Moderator: Geneviève Pons, director of the Jacques Delors Institute office in Brussels For more information
