Room for Discussion: Roland Kobia


On April 26, Room for Discussion will host one of the EU’s top diplomats, Roland Kobia! He is a true EU guru; he started working for the European Commission 30 years ago and now works for the EU’s diplomatic service, the EEAS. He is now EU Ambassador to Ethiopia, a country currently in the throes of civil war. Mr Kobia previously served as EU Ambassador to Myanmar and EU Special Envoy to Afghanistan, where he was appointed to negotiate with the Taliban.
If you are interested in EU foreign policy, peace processes, political mediation, state-building and regional security, you cannot miss this interview! We are also adapting the format of this interview to a seminar type format – this implies that you will have approximately 30 minutes to ask your own questions to our expert!
