The EU’s assistance for civil society partners in Turkey, the Western Balkans, and Eastern Europe needs to evolve in response to the more challenging environments activists in these countries now face.
In February 1945, the leaders of the United States, the Soviet Union, and the UK hammered out the fate of postwar Europe in a bombed-out resort on the Black Sea. Seventy-five years later, how have their decisions held up?
The EU earned international recognition for its role in the Iran deal negotiations. Now, Europeans must raise their game with continuous high-level diplomacy—while preparing for further escalation in the Middle East.
Today’s Turkey is more nationalist and more inclined to assert its political and military power than in recent years. To deal with Ankara, NATO and the EU must be firm, resolute, and yet cooperative.
The EU could benefit from tapping into the smart ideas behind its many successful local projects, and then adapting them to benefit other member states.
Without corrective action, the United States and Europe will drift further apart over the 2020s, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office.
Europe has a vested interest in Middle East stability as well as in the welfare of its people.
The divergence between Europe and the United States is structural, not just personal, and it won’t simply disappear with the departure of Donald Trump.
The dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan remains the most dangerous conflict in the post-Soviet space. Even if political tensions have eased since 2018, the region remains dangerously militarized.
