    The EU Should Stand Firm on Turkey

    Marc PieriniTuesday, November 23, 2021

      To avoid an open rule-of-law dialogue with the EU, Turkey is being selective in its areas of engagement with the bloc. The union must make clear that compartmentalizing EU-Turkey relations to suit Ankara’s domestic political convenience is not acceptable.

      Judy Asks: Is Europe in Denial About Russia?

      Judy DempseyThursday, November 18, 2021

        Most European leaders are disillusioned with Russia. But continuing divisions inside the EU over how to deal with the Kremlin prevent a coherent Russia strategy and play into the hands of Putin.

        How Europe Can Build Upon COP26

        Olivia LazardTuesday, November 16, 2021

          If climate action fails, the EU will succumb to economic breakdown of supply chains and migratory pressures. To avoid this, the bloc must advance climate justice and restore trust between developed and developing economies.

          Judy DempseyTuesday, November 09, 2021

            The EU has been slow and irresolute in stopping Minsk from using migrants as a hybrid weapon to weaken the bloc. A migration and asylum policy—not a fortress Europe—is the answer.

            Kurt BassuenerThursday, November 04, 2021

              The EU has long been the dominant player in Bosnia and Herzegovina, however its policy toward the country and the Western Balkans more broadly is failing. A recent vote in the UN Security Council has destroyed what was left of the union’s credibility.

              Judy DempseyTuesday, November 02, 2021

                The global arms control regime is disintegrating. To reverse this trend, Europe and the United States will have to find a way to engage both Russia and China.

                Judy Asks: Is Europe’s Energy Crisis Self-Inflicted?

                Judy DempseyThursday, October 28, 2021

                  Europe is facing soaring gas prices. To avoid further crises, the EU should speed up its transition to renewables, reduce dependence on Russia, and formulate a coherent energy policy.

                  Richard YoungsTuesday, October 26, 2021

                    As a leader in international climate diplomacy, the EU still lacks an ecological foreign policy. The union will need to make some far-reaching changes to its geopolitical strategies if it is to place ecological imperatives above other interests.

                    Gwendolyn SasseThursday, October 21, 2021

                      Among Belarusians, trust in the political elite remains low while the perceived effectiveness of EU sanctions is decreasing. The union must keep the latter in mind when assessing its strategy toward the country.
