Germany has taken over the presidency of the EU Council in extraordinary times. The economic, social, and political consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic pose a severe stress test to the EU’s cohesion and capacity to act. Still, expectations are high. The country is under a lot of pressure to turn this “Corona-Presidency” into a success and lay the groundwork for the EU to come back stronger and more united after this health crisis.

The German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the European Policy Centre (EPC) have joined forces to connect the EU policy debates in Berlin and Brussels. Throughout Germany’s presidency, we will carefully assess its impact in several concrete policy fields and, at crucial stages, give concrete recommendations on its direction and execution. In doing so, we aim to encourage an exchange of views on the future of the EU and Germany’s role in it.
