During her distinguished career, Baroness Ashton served as the European Union’s first high representative for foreign affairs and security, and the first female European Union commissioner for trade.

In conversation with Ambassador Philip Reeker and Global Europe Program Director, Robin Quinville, Baroness Ashton will share insights and anecdotes from her new book, which includes her negotiating the “Brussels agreement” between Serbia and Kosovo and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, and harrowing meetings with some of modern history’s most influential leaders. “And Then What?” offers a unique vantage point into how modern diplomacy works, looking at the tools needed to address the challenges facing Europe and the world.

“And Then What?” will be available for purchase at the Wilson Center. We hope you will join us at 11:00 am following the discussion for a coffee reception with Baroness Ashton, where she will sign copies of her book. If you are joining us virtually, you may purchase a copy of her book from Politics & Prose Bookstore.
