The incoming U.S. president’s mind-set looks set to bring about the most significant rupture in the transatlantic order since World War II.
The EU’s policy of non-recognition and engagement in the South Caucasus has been modestly successful and may offer useful lessons for other parts of Eastern Europe.
Instead of whining about the incoming U.S. administration, EU leaders should adopt several measures designed to increase the bloc’s influence and coherence.
Rather than fall into despondency, Europeans should see the presidency of Donald Trump as a salutary shock. Finally there is real urgency for Europe to get its act together.
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.
Europe has been so weakened by the tumultuous events of 2016 that it is left unprepared to deal with the big foreign policy challenges of 2017.
Unless European leaders change their mind-set, the United States and Russia will break up the European Union.
The European Union is no longer wedded to transforming its Eastern and Southern neighbors. Stabilization is the new priority.
Following the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, it falls to the Europeans to defend the international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
Hand-wringing by Western foreign ministers over Syria and Ukraine is no substitute for dealing with the shortfalls of diplomacy—especially vis-à-vis Russia.
