• The End of the Post-1945 Transatlantic Relationship
    October 28, 2013

    Postwar feelings of transatlantic solidarity are no more. Today, Americans and Europeans have vastly different perceptions of the outside world and of the threats they face.

  • Europe and Iran: Past as Prologue

    Richard YoungsFriday, October 18, 2013

      The EU is well-positioned to encourage the nascent U.S.-Iranian rapprochement. To do so, the EU will need to draw lessons from its previous period of cooperation with Tehran.

    • Democracy: Down but Not Out

      Misha GlennyFriday, October 11, 2013

        The system described by Winston Churchill as “the worst form of government except all the others” may look damaged these days. But parliaments still play a vital role.

      • In Praise of Central Europe

        Jan TechauTuesday, October 08, 2013

          Western Europeans should watch Central Europe carefully. Its obsessions should not be dismissed lightly, and its ambitions make good historical, political, and economic sense.

        • Russia’s Chance in the U.S.-Iranian Rapprochement

          Dmitri TreninFriday, October 04, 2013

            The emerging rapprochement between Washington and Tehran creates a potential opportunity for Russia’s Vladimir Putin to boost his country’s international standing.

          • What U.S. Shale Gas Means for European Industry

            Judy DempseyThursday, October 03, 2013

              The U.S. shale gas revolution is having a big effect on European manufacturing. New transatlantic trade talks should focus European minds on energy market reforms.

            • Learn to Live With Germany

              John KornblumWednesday, October 02, 2013

                Germany is not about to become a “better European” by altering its approach to the euro crisis. The world should get used to that and stop lambasting Berlin for its policies.

              • Germany’s Other Foreign Policy Agenda

                Ulrich SpeckFriday, September 27, 2013

                  The euro crisis is not the only foreign policy challenge facing the new government in Berlin. Will Germany now realize its potential and develop a foreign policy worthy of the name?

                • How to Read the Signs in the Euro Crisis

                  Michael PettisFriday, September 20, 2013

                    Is the debt crisis in the eurozone over? Or will it get worse? The answer doesn’t simply depend on the level of debt. At least three other factors also come into play.

                  • Europeans Say No to Military Intervention

                    Judy DempseyThursday, September 19, 2013

                      According to a recent survey, Europeans are unconvinced by military action abroad but still value European leadership in the world. Those two views are tricky to reconcile.

                    • Syria: The West’s Three Cardinal Sins

                      Jan TechauTuesday, September 17, 2013

                        By failing on three counts to react strategically to challenges in the Middle East, the West has revealed its foreign policy performance to be breathtakingly miserable.

                        Judy DempseyThursday, September 12, 2013

                          The ongoing Syrian crisis has exposed a Europe that lacks the political resolve for serious diplomacy and the conviction to enforce international weapons conventions.

                          Judy DempseyWednesday, September 11, 2013

                            Every week leading experts answer a new question from Judy Dempsey on the foreign and security policy challenges shaping Europe’s role in the world.

                          • Why the Eastern Partnership Is Crucial for the EU and the West

                            Jan TechauTuesday, September 10, 2013

                              The EU’s approach toward its Eastern neighbors matters hugely for the region, for the EU, and for the West as a whole. That approach needs to be bolder and more strategic.

                                Jan TechauTuesday, September 03, 2013

                                  If decisionmakers are serious about military intervention in Syria, they should make a convincing case for a full-scale, sustained, and deadly blow against the Assad regime.

                                  Judy DempseyMonday, September 02, 2013

                                    London’s overreliance on its special relationship with Washington has been bad for Britain and bad for the EU. The UK should accept that its real future lies with Europe.

                                    Elaine ByrneFriday, August 02, 2013

                                      Too much financial regulation is nearly as bad as too little. Public and private institutions together need to find a new approach to ensure that the rules are “just right.”

                                    • Wagner’s Ring Cycle Ignores Shale Gas

                                      Judy DempseyMonday, July 29, 2013

                                        A recent adaptation of Wagner’s Ring cycle makes a provocative analogy with American oil, but misses the importance of the shale gas revolution sweeping the United States.

                                      • Will EU Foreign Policy Save the Integration Process?

                                        Jan TechauFriday, July 26, 2013

                                          The EU’s foreign and defense policies are not the logical next steps toward further integration. But without them integration might become even shallower than it is today.
