FGV’s International Intelligence Unit (NPII) will host three meetings on March 21, 22, and 23 under the Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies Project. The events will be open to the public, gathering international experts to discuss the economic changes in the region of the Atlantic, as well as new opportunities and challenges for Brazil, the European Union, and other countries.

On March 21, there will be an event dedicated to the student audience to analyze How are economic, energy, and human security changes transforming the space of the Atlantic?’. Renowned international experts from the project’s partner Research Institutions, distributed across four continents of the Atlantic, will coordinate panel discussions based on the following subjects: Energy, Economics/International Trade, and Human Security.

The event will strengthen the students’ insights into the Atlantic and help them better understand the role of the EU in this region, as well as the various regional integration processes in Europe and other continents in the Atlantic basin.

The Economics & Foreign Trade Conference by the Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies’ will be held on March 22 and 23.  The Conference will address continuities and changes in commercial connectivity throughout the Atlantic region, providing learning opportunities of mutual experiences with sub-regional integration efforts, such as the EU Single Market.

The event will provide a deeper look into trade interdependencies and the shifting commercial dynamics between the EU, Brazil, and other players represented in the Network to shape the future of the Atlantic, especially through joint initiatives in the public and private sectors.
