    Merkel’s Silence Over Defense Will Haunt Her Successor

    Judy Asks: Will the Afghanistan Debacle Change Your Country’s Foreign and Security Policy?

    The Hollowness of Global Britain

    Illusions about the UK’s special relationship with the United States and a supposedly painless Brexit have been shed. The inability of Boris Johnson’s government to face up to that makes it impossible to define a new role for Britain in the world.

    The Message of Merkel’s Last Official Visits to Russia and Ukraine

    The German chancellor’s legacy with regard to Russia and Ukraine is mixed, if not contradictory. Still, her successor is unlikely to show the same level of interest, commitment, or clout in their relations with Kiev and Moscow.

    The Europe Angela Merkel Leaves Behind

    Chancellor Merkel’s last official visit to the White House holds a special political significance. President Biden has placed human rights and rule of law at the top of his agenda, just as these values are under attack from within and outside Europe.

    The Price of Britain’s Megaphone Diplomacy With the EU

    Russia-Europe Relations Depend on Moscow Confronting the Past

    A defining feature of Russia’s leadership is the refusal to deal with the country’s Stalinist past. Until the Kremlin stops whitewashing history, a politically stable relationship between Europe and Russia cannot exist.

    Iran’s New President Means Headache and Opportunity for Europe

    With the election of a hardliner as Iranian president, eight years of European thinking that Tehran could be a partner will come to an end. It’s time for the EU to address not only the nuclear file but also regional security threats.
