  • The Initial Outcomes of the Foreign Policy of Viktor Yanukovych

    In his first 100 days in office, Ukrainian President Yanukovych has set a positive new tone in his country's relations with Russia and reaffirmed Ukraine’s strategic orientation towards Europe.

  • Turkey Emerges as Middle East Leader

    The flotilla incident is the culmination of a slow drift in Turkish-Israeli relations. As the Israelis are increasingly subject to international opprobrium, Turkey’s strategic importance in the region is ascendant.

  • Freely Elected Mayors a Dying Breed

    The Russian government has been stepping up efforts to cancel the direct election of mayors following the cancellation of direct gubernatorial elections in 2004.

  • Ban Nuclear Tests in Middle East

    A nuclear-test-free zone in the Middle East would be a realistic and practical way to lower regional tensions.

  • A Hollow 'Reset' With Russia

    Russia’s engagement with the United States on Iran’s nuclear ambitions has not changed significantly since 2007, in spite of the Obama administration’s emphasis on the success of the ‘reset.’

  • China Falls Victim to Greek Deficit Contagion

    China’s steps to limit the damage from the Greek crisis will necessarily shift the brunt of the economic adjustment to other countries, unless the major trading powers can reach a burden-sharing agreement.

  • Turkey is the Only Middle Eastern Country Pointing Toward the Future

    Turkey is an increasingly important player in the Middle East. It has embraced modern economic realities and has created a space for the coexistence of democracy, secularism, Islam, science, individuality, and community all in the same society.

  • Risks of Maghreb’s Excessive Economic Reliance on Europe

    The countries of the Maghreb need to shape their policies and programs in order to diversify their trade and financial partners and sever the ties that bind them to the fate of the European economy.

  • Lift EU Visas for Russians

    Lifting visa requirements on travel from Russia to the European Union is likely to bring Russian citizens further into the institutional, normative, and cultural pathways of Europe.

  • The U.S.' Eurozone Problem

    • Uri Dadush
    • May 14, 2010
    • Council on Foreign Relations

    The economies of the United States and Europe are tightly linked via trade, investment, and financial markets. If the Euro crisis spreads, U.S. banking and export sectors will suffer.

  • Europe Bought Time and Not Much Else

    Europe’s massive rescue package has bought time for its most troubled economies, but, unless these countries move forward with necessary—and deeply unpopular—reforms, the newly available money will do little to save them.

  • A Far-Away Country in Need of Help

    Most Europeans rank Yemen low on their list of priorities. Yet the country threatens their interests more than they recognize, and they can do more about it than they might think.

  • Solving Tokyo's Nuclear Conundrum

    Conditioning Japanese nuclear cooperation with India on India's nuclear testing restraint would be a reasonable compromise among Japanese interests and among those of its foreign nuclear partners and India, and a significant gain over the status quo.

  • Two Heads Are Better Than One

    United Russia is preparing for the October regional elections, its first serious test run prior to the State Duma elections in 2011, and the result of these preparations may see the party changed for the better.

  • Nagorno-Karabakh and the Minsk Group Negotiations

    Negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are deadlocked, with serious consequences not only for the nations involved in the conflict, but also for the Armenia-Turkey reconciliation process.

  • Islamist Shortcomings

    Islamist parties have learned to communicate better through their engagement with the political process, but so far their participation in electoral and parliamentary activities has resulted in few concrete benefits.

  • Perceptions of an Assertive China

    The widely-held belief among both Chinese and Western observers that China is growing increasingly assertive has the potential to create significant challenges for Sino-U.S. relations.

  • A Three-Point Plan to Save the Euro

    The emergency aid for Greece buys the Euro area some valuable time, but Europe will need to enact a credible plan that addresses the situations in both Greece and other vulnerable countries if the Euro area is to survive in the long-term.

  • Lower Emissions and Lower the Deficit

    A carbon fee would discourage carbon emissions, encourage the transition to low-carbon fuels, and provide revenue to finance America's transition to a new world order of clean energy.

  • Missiles Over Tskhinvali

    Tensions between Georgia and Russia continue to simmer, in the aftermath of the five-day war of August 2008. Without disinterested help from the West, Georgian president Saakashvili’s rhetorical invocation of a Russian threat could all too easily become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
