On 7 March, the EUISS and the Egmont Royal Institute for International Relations co-organised a workshop on the EU’s engagement with the Great Lakes region. The workshop brought together experts, EU policymakers and representatives from NGOs active in the region to discuss the implementation of the new EU strategy towards the Great Lakes region.

The workshop provided an opportunity to discuss the details of the updated strategy, which was published on 20 February 2023. Among others, participants exchanged thoughts on what was new in the new strategy, challenges to its implementation, and foresight scenarios for EU engagement in the Great Lakes region. Finally, the participants discussed policy options that could propel efficient implementation.
