EU-LISTCO’s kick-off conference entitled ‘Europe’s External Action and the Dual Challenges of Limited Statehood and Contested Orders’ took place in Berlin from April 25 to April 27, 2018. The conference officially started the three-year research project and aimed at three goals: firstly, it provided an opportunity to EU-LISTCO’s consortium partners to engage in discussion on the project’s research questions, agenda, conceptual and theoretical framework, the state of the art of the literature and planned empirical research. Secondly, the conference brought together practitioners involved with the project in the framework of Work Package (WP) 6 and therefore represents the first step in making EU-LISTCO’s research as policy-relevant as possible. Thirdly, through a public roundtable on autocracy and instability in the EU’s neighbourhood hosted by the European Commission’s representation in Germany, the conference made a first step to ensure wide public dissemination of its research.
