Background Discussion with Clément Beaune

Berlin, 13 January 2022

On 13 January 2022, Clément Beaune, Minister of State for European Affairs in the French government, met with members of the German Bundestag, representatives of several ministries and experts from selected think tanks for a "Background Discussion" at Körber-Stiftung. Beaune shared his views and his vision regarding the future of the EU as a kick-off to the French EU Council Presidency. Aside from the programme of the presidency, participants also discussed EU politics and foreign relations more generally. In the light of recent developments, the question of European Security as well as the situation in Ukraine was also part of the debate.

Körber-Stiftung regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking members of Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Breakfasts and Background Discussions. For 60 years, Körber-Stiftung has been committed to international dialogue across political, national and religious boundaries under the motto "Talk to each other, not about one another". With the Political Breakfasts and Background Discussions, Körber-Stiftung offers space for honest and substantive exchange between speakers and high-ranking representatives of political Berlin. As with the Bergedorfer Round Table, the discussions take place in a confidential setting to enable an open and constructive dialogue.
