Nathalie Tocci is director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali, Honorary Professor at the University of Tübingen, and Board Member of Eni. She is also the author of POLITICO’s monthly World View column.


A Green and Global Europe

After years of existential crisis, Europe has found a new raison d’être: the European Green Deal and the energy transition that lies at its core. This green Europe represents a normative vision, an economic growth strategy, as well as a route to a political Union that would enhance EU integration and legitimacy. But it can only be realized if it addresses head-on the social, economic, political and geopolitical ramifications of this epochal change.

In A Green and Global Europe, Nathalie Tocci explains how the unprecedented nature of the current energy transition represents both a unique opportunity and a huge challenge to Europe’s future prosperity. The EU, she argues, must not act in isolation or ignore the adverse effects of the transition on Member States and neighbours. It must also address the global cleavages that may arise with China, the transatlantic relationship and the Global South as a result of the EU’s green agenda. By adopting a truly global approach to the energy transition, Europe can deliver on its responsibilities to people and planet alike, and avoid unleashing social, economic and security problems that could come biting back at the Union.



"Nathalie Tocci’s book is an extraordinary journey into the European Union vision and mission to become the global leader of the green agenda. Nathalie explores in a fascinating way the links between the Green Deal, domestic European dynamics, and the regional and worldwide geopolitical implications of today and tomorrow. It couldn’t be more timely, as it analyses the different ways in which the strategic autonomy of the European Union is intertwined with its green agenda and its energy transition. A precious contribution to the definition of a new horizon for our continent’s mission!"

- Federica Mogherini, Rector of the College of Europe and Former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy

"Nathalie Tocci unpacks the complex policy dilemmas facing Europe in its quest for climate leadership. Her invaluable guide to the democratic, foreign policy and geo-political challenges of the energy transition shows the all-of-government approach that the EU needs to take to succeed in its great leap forward in integration through the European Green Deal."

- Heather Grabbe, Director, Open Society Policy Institute
