    The bear and the beaver: Russia and European energy security

    Winter is long over, and with it the worry, for a few months at least, that a Russian gas cut-off could leave Europe in the cold. This year, however, the fading threat has the appearance of being more than merely an annual phenomenon. While Europe’s energy security will be a challenge for decades to come, three recent developments provide...

Over the past year, the armed conflict in Ukraine has heavily tested all three in Europe and the US. So far, transatlantic solidarity, trust and shared threat perception seem to be holding.

    Although there is a strong element of grievance in the politics of populism, one factor which is common to almost all of the continent’s populist parties is an anti-EU sentiment.

    The tough lessons of the EU-Russia crisis

    Relations between Russia and the European Union are in deep crisis – perhaps the most serious crisis since the end of the Cold War.

    Still no good news for the “make-or-break” EU Juncker promised

    From the challenge of Russia to the on-going tragedy unfolding in the Mediterranean to the persistent sense of economic drift, Europe finds itself at an inflection point. The disaffection of European citizens looms large, and institutions in Brussels are perceived as uninspiring and directionless. This leads to an uncomfortable but urgently...

    Greek Crisis Awaits Other NATO Partners

    One notable consequence of the Ukraine conflict and the ongoing confrontational stand-off between the West and Russia is the dramatic surge in military spending among several European countries. However, this unprecedented militarization of economies across Europe portends a disastrous Greek-style future of crippling debt for these same...

    Kennan Cable No.10: A Strategy for Economic Assistance to Ukraine

    To help Ukraine avert disaster, the United States and Europe need a strategy for providing political and economic support that matches available resources to the complex reality of Ukraine’s economy, politics, and society, and that encourages the emergence of a Ukrainian-led vision for the country’s future. …read more Source:...
