  • A strategic rubicon

    Nick Witney - 1 November, 2010

    The announcement of a Franco-British defence partnership will be a watershed in European security thinking. Once that Rubicon has been crossed it will raise questions for their EU partners, and perhaps this will have a profound bearing on whether Europe can keep a seat in the…

    East Asia Summit; where is Europe?

    Jonas Parello-Plesner - 29 October, 2010

    The EU could be at the East Asia Summit that is beginning in Hanoi, and it could carry a compelling and coherent message that would be listened to be the Asian states, Russia and the US. But it isn't. This must change.

    Wie viel Europa darf es sein?

    Ulrike Guérot - 27 October, 2010

    Eine interessengeleite deutsche Europapolitik ersetzt zunehmend die historisch bedingte Symbiose zwischen Deutschland und Europa. Im post-romantischen Europa des 21.Jahrhunderts bestimmt sich Deutschlands Rolle neu – wie viel Europa darf es sein und was ist der Preis von…

    Immigrant Russia - a crisis of demography or ethnicity?

    Ben Judah - 26 October, 2010

    One of the gravest challenges to Russia is thought to be the country's demographic crisis. But once migrants are taken into account the numbers don't look quite as bad. However this could have the result of turning a demographic crisis into an ethnic one. 

    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
