On 19 December 2018, just following the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Katowice (Poland) ,  the Institute for European Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels organised a 2-hour policy forum on the COP’s implications for international and European climate policy.

The speakers consisted of academic and political experts and in order to allow a broader audience access to the event, it was filmed and now shared here.
