As the EU begins a new cycle of its aid programs, it must place democracy at the center of its development policy.
Contrary to widespread assertions, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has not given birth to a fundamental geopolitical shift in EU external action.
The multifaceted tensions simmering south of Europe pose major challenges to the EU. Although the bloc has already embarked on some important foreign policy initiatives, more concrete and sustained actions must be implemented.
Russia's invasion of Ukraine will sharpen the divide between democracies and autocracies, but also lead to more realpolitik strategic balancing. A key question is what kind of coordination emerges between democracies.
Opinion polls show Rishi Sunak to be the British electorate’s favorite among Boris Johnson’s potential successors. The Labour Party should fear the candidate who can persuade voters that they belong to the political mainstream.
Water scarcity threatens the political, social, economic, and environmental stability of Iran. The European Union can help by trailblazing a new form of diplomacy that integrates climate action, cultural exchange, and technological cooperation.
North Macedonia’s access to the EU has been opposed by Bulgaria due to historical disputes. The bloc should help Sofia and Skopje to shift their focus to more practical concerns, such as trade, infrastructure, telecommunications, and energy.
