  • Dear (new) foreign minister...

    José Ignacio Torreblanca - 25 October, 2010

    Spain has a new minister of foreign affairs - Trinidad Jimenez. So what are the priorities? Firstly, to restore international confidence in Spain, but then to think of the long term challenges in a world that is changing quickly.

    We need new rules for a multipolar Europe

    Ivan Krastev and Mark Leonard - 21 October, 2010

    The Deauville summit involving Sarkozy, Merkel and Medvedev was always likely to be a non-event, beyond the recognition that Europe is now a multipolar continent. Instead we need a new system - an informal trialogue on European security that would keep the EU united, Russia…

    A reed in the wind

    José Ignacio Torreblanca - 21 October, 2010

    Europe's pathetic reaction to Liu Xiaobo's Nobel peace prize showed an urge by EU leaders to not only render themselves internationally irrelevant, but also a determination to cover the EU itself in ridicule. Europe must decide whether it wants to play a role in the new world…

    Eyes tight shut

    Nick Witney - 20 October, 2010

    Britain's defence review is deeply flawed because it is based on a self-deluding picture of the world. It brings to mind the spectacle of the Viking King, Canute, who one thousand years ago commanded the tide to stop on an English beach.

    Time to get pedalling

    Nick Witney and Hilmar Linnenkamp - 19 October, 2010

    Just possibly, EU defence ministers may have realised that only their personal engagement will ensure co-operation between their military staff. This is vital as European countries look for a way to retain effective security capabilities in an era of shrinking budgets.

    Visions and illusions of a new European security order

    G?lnur Aybet - 19 October, 2010

    Europe is now shifting away from the 'democratic enlargement' paradigm that marked the first decades of the post-Cold War world. The EU needs to search for an alternative vision, engaging Turkey as a regional power and understanding the changes in Russia's perspective as it…

    The spectre of a multipolar Europe

    Ivan Krastev and Mark Leonard - 15 October, 2010

    The meeting of Angela Merkel, Dmitri Medvedev and Nicolas Sarkozy at the French seaside resort of Deauville on Monday 18th has the right agenda - European security - but the wrong actors. A trialogue involving the EU, Russia and Turkey would be the best way to rethink security…

    European security: The spectre of a multipolar Europe

    Dimitar Bechev, Jana Kobzova, Ivan Krastev, Mark Leonard, Andrew Wilson - 15 October, 2010

    The EU needs to build a trialogue on security with Russia and Turkey

    Drone Attacks: Why New Wars Need New Rules

    Anthony Dworkin - 14 October, 2010

    Obama’s increased use of drone attacks has left many people on both sides of the Atlantic unsure how to react. A new approach, based on human rights principles, is needed to assess their permissibility.

    Making sense of Europe's puzzling China policy

    François Godement - 12 October, 2010

    A trade deal with South Korea proves that Europe can get things done when it wants. So why is the EU's policy with China such a puzzle? Perhaps it should learn from Germany, which is showing how to talk tough to Beijing while still achieving its aims.

    Where does Liu Xiaobo's Nobel leave Europe?

    Susi Dennison - 8 October, 2010

    China's anger over the award of the Nobel peace prize to Liu Xiaobo leaves the EU with a hard question to answer: Should it stick to its human rights principles or should it look to compromise on its values in pursuit of the world's most important rising power?

    Navel gazing won't help at the UN

    Richard Gowan - 6 October, 2010

    The EU's place as an international power depends more on its actions than on its status at the UN. If Europe concentrates on tackling real-world challenges through the UN system it can keep the United Nations relevant; concentrating on matters of status only makes the EU look…
