QCEA Study Tour: Europe at Crossroads

Europe at a crossroads


After two years of hiatus caused by COVID-19, a new Study Tour organised by the Quaker Council for European Affairs is returning this upcoming Autumn!

2022 will go down in history as a year of compounding crises. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has brought the threat of war ever closer to the EU, while a new Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report revealed that the window of opportunity to avoid irreversible and devastating harm caused by global heating is rapidly closing. Events in Afghanistan, and Ukraine, and protracted armed conflict in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Ethiopia and Somalia have caused an increase in refugee flows, while the pandemic lingers on, exacerbating inequalities and impacting the most vulnerable. The policies that are approved in this crucial time will define the direction of the EU for years to come, with the potential of changing its very nature as a political project.

The Study Tour will provide a space for participants to learn and reflect on key policy areas that shape the future of Europe and the context for Quaker advocacy. Particularly, it will focus on three thematic areas:

- Militarisation
- Climate
- Asylum and Migration

QCEA’s Autumn 2022 Study Tour will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the EU, its policy-making mechanisms, as well as ways in which NGOs, civil society and common citizens can make a difference. The tour will include visits to EU institutions, workshops and discussions to dive deep into the issues.

Are you curious about the key issues at stake in the EU elections? Do you want to play an active role in shaping the discourse around these matters? This webinar provides a unique opportunity for you to gain insights into the political landscape and discover ways to engage with candidates on the issues that matter most to you.
