The European Union is set to appoint a new High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy – at a moment when the importance of a strong EU foreign policy couldn’t be clearer. Instead of the horse-trading and political calculations that will likely result in someone taking on the High Rep mantle – imagine if qualifications and strategic thinking drove the EU’s selection process. And imagine if the post to steer EU foreign policy was so coveted and high-profile, that the process received widespread enthusiastic attention.
ECFR is imagining such a world. We want to draw attention to the High Representative position and, by extension, EU foreign policy by exciting some debate around the position – and we want to have a little fun with it.
Join our campaign on twitter to shine some light on the future face of EU foreign policy. We have started a small twitter campaign under #HighRepCasting – and we’d love for you to participate. What kind of High Representative does the EU need – in less than 140 characters? You can take it lightly, be creative, or play it straight. Share your opinion, or simply promote the #HighRepCasting debate – and let’s see if we can’t turn the High Representative post into the most high-profile job on the continent.
