A selection of experts answer a new question from Judy Dempsey on the foreign and security policy challenges shaping Europe’s role in the world.
Voters in France should seize the upcoming presidential election as an opportunity to halt the country’s twenty-year economic decline and enact long-overdue reforms.
The future of Europe and, especially, of the Franco-German relationship depends on who becomes France’s next president.
A combination of economic woes, historical baggage, and political distrust means that France is perceived as Europe’s weak link.
U.S. President Donald Trump may not be popular in France, but some of his views on defense and security could be considered typical French positions.
Together, France and Germany can live up to the daunting responsibility of coordinating their growing defense budgets in a way that benefits Europe.
Talk of a European nuclear deterrent might be welcome in Washington, but such a scheme would do very little to help Europe tackle the biggest challenges it faces.
Since Donald Trump was elected U.S. president in November 2016, reality has gained ground in the battle against populism.
The success of populist movements across Europe is not inevitable, despite Britain’s vote to leave the EU and the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.
As the 2017 Munich Security Conference draws to a close, it is clear that the future of the EU will be determined largely in Washington and Paris.
