  • The EU?s ?slow food? enlargement

    Daniel Korski - 14 April, 2010

    The EU enlargement debate used to be about expanding freedoms and preventing conflict. But a lot of Europeans now think that whatever lies outside the EU?s borders can stay there.

    What kind of interpolar world?

    Daniel Korski - 30 March, 2010

    Two stories about the Middle East ? Israel?s latest settlement plans and Iran?s nuclear programme ? shed more light on the world?s power structure than the pages of a thousand history books.

    The soft power of hard states

    Daniel Korski - 22 March, 2010

    It's tempting to think that hard states like China and Russia cannot offer anything in terms of soft power. But Europe and the US need to understand that this viewpoint is no longer valid

    Bosnia: The end of integration?

    Daniel Korski - 8 March, 2010

    Debate over how to help a crisis-striken Bosnia ranges from involvement to encouragement. But a third, unpalatable option for a frustrated EU may lurk just behind the scenes: abandonment

    If Sun Tzu went to Gymnich

    Daniel Korski - 4 March, 2010

    European foreign ministers at the informal Gymnich meeting should take a leaf out of Sun Tzu's book, and discuss the larger trends shaping Europe's place in the world rather than institutions and methods

    Partners in decline

    Daniel Korski - 3 March, 2010

    Europe is an easy target for a frustrated Washington. But this misses a fundamental point. The US and Europe are the best allies they?ve each got. Both are declining powers that need to stick together.

    Europe et op?rations ext?rieures

    Richard Gowan, Daniel Korski - 2 March, 2010

    Daniel Korski et Richard Gowan sur la strat?gie de s?curit? civilo-militaire de l?UE. L?Europe peut-elle passer de la rh?torique ? l?action?

    Daniel Korski dans le Monde sur l?op?ration Mushtarak en Afghanistan et pourquoi elle doit ?tre une campagne militaire et politique et pas simplement une bataille.

    In defence of Europe

    Daniel Korski - 24 February, 2010

    European defence ministers are meeting at a difficult time, with Robert Gates accusing Europeans of threatening Euro-Atlantic security, and the recent collapse of the Dutch government over Afghanistan. The defence ministers urgently need to re-examine how the continent thinks…

    Dobro do?li to the Balkans, Baroness Ashton

    Daniel Korski - 19 February, 2010

    Catherine Ashton visits the Western Balkans in her first official foreign trip, and is again roundly criticised. But this troubled region could do with her attention

    Europe and the rise of the world's lynchpin states

    Daniel Korski - 16 February, 2010

    While Europe focuses on India and China, a host of medium-sized emerging powers are helping to reshape global diplomacy. Is Europe ready for the rise of the lynchpin states?

    Time for Europe to think bold thoughts

    Daniel Korski - 10 February, 2010

    Europe has a lot to gain from being inventive. A Turkish-EU troop offer could help unlock Gaza - and the Middle East peace process

  • Egypt's popular putsch

    Daniel Korski - 26 January, 2012

    It is too early to write off Egypt's revolution. Unlike in the past, politics is now a live issue across the country, and that popular force is a difficult one to control or stop, and even the steps that have been taken now seemed impossible just over a year ago.  

    The year of the HUBRICS

    Daniel Korski - 12 January, 2012

    With Europe and much of the West facing a seemingly painful decline, attention continues to shift to the BRICS and the world's other rising powers. But are these countries overplaying their hands as the cracks begin to show in their economic virility?  

    Without military reform Egypt cannot democratise

    Daniel Korski - 5 July, 2011

    Egypt will struggle to progress towards democracy unless some form of military reform takes place. The first challenge is to make sure that any moves towards reform are palatable to the entrenched interests of Military Inc.  

    Mission manual

    Daniel Korski - 21 March, 2011

    Wars are easy to start, hard to fight, and often harder still to end. Learning the right lessons from past wars, recent and old ones, is absolutely key. In Libya the international community must also keep its focus on political rather than military aims.  

    Kyrgyzstan: Russia?s Rwanda

    Daniel Korski - 18 June, 2010

    Just as France maintained links with its former colonies in Central Africa, Moscow has maintained ties with the former Soviet Republics in Central Asia. In light of the recent violence in its backyard nation of Kyrgyzstan, what lessons can Russia learn from France?s experience…

    Western Balkans: The way out of the EU?s waiting room

    Daniel Korski - 26 May, 2010

    Pre-occupied with its financial troubles, the EU is no longer paying attention to the Western Balkans. As a result it is losing credibility and influence in a region that may slide back towards instability.

    What is a Cleggservative foreign policy?

    Daniel Korski - 12 May, 2010

    Forget reputations. Britain's new coalition government of the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats will temper its foreign policy approach with a healthy dose of pragmatism.

    Nick Clegg and a very European election

    Daniel Korski - 22 April, 2010

    Will Europe rise to the Eyjafjallajokull challenge?

    François Godement, Daniel Korski - 20 April, 2010

    The eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano has created transport chaos, but the EU can lead the way in finding a trans-national solution to a cross-border crisis.

    Daniel Korski - 14 April, 2010

    The EU enlargement debate used to be about expanding freedoms and preventing conflict. But a lot of Europeans now think that whatever lies outside the EU?s borders can stay there.
