Navigating EU Foreign and Security Challenges with Baroness Catherine Ashton
On November 12, the Center for Global Legal Challenges and Yale Law Women hosted a conversation on European foreign and security challenges with Baroness Catherine Ashton, former High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Baroness Ashton discussed the European Union’s strategic and diplomatic concerns in several contemporary crises, including the Ukraine, the Arab Spring and Syria. She also reflected on the many international negotiations in which she has participated, including the recent Iran nuclear talks and the negotiations related to the Serbia-Kosovo crisis.
In addition to serving as the EU’s foreign policy chief, Baroness Ashton was formerly the First Vice President of the European Commission. She previously worked in the UK’s Department of Education of Skills and the Ministry of Justice. She is a member of the House of Lords.
