Scorecard 2015: the View from the Capitals

The European Foreign Policy Scorecard 2015 concluded that in a year of crises, European countries pulled together over a response to Russia, but failed to have an impact in many other policy areas. According to this annual systematic assessment of Europe’s foreign policy performance, the main leaders in 2014 were Germany, Sweden and the UK, with a surprisingly strong role for the Baltic states. In this series of articles, ECFR experts from our national offices as well as contributors from other countries debate the Scorecard results in their respective countries.
