      Eight obstacles to Ukraine achieving peace with Russia

      Volodymyr Zelenskyy was no different from most other presidential candidates during Ukraine’s 2019 elections in promising peace but without explaining how it would be achieved. In some cases, the promise of peace was pure populism while for others it was a willingness to capitulate to Russian demands. In Zelenskyy’s case, it may have...

      We must never stop tearing down walls

      All in all, you were all just bricks in the wall, Pink Floyd famously sang. Throughout history, proud leaders have been busy at making people build barriers, fences, and borders. From the Great Wall of China to the proposed barriers on the US-Mexico border, walls throughout history have been as much about protecting and separating societies and...

      Is President Trump looking away as Rosneft undermines his “maximum pressure” on Venezuela and Iran?

      Tougher test than Cold War

      Next week’s thirtieth anniversary of the Berlin Wall’s collapse will be less a moment to celebrate democracy’s improbable Cold War triumph and more a time to confront the even more difficult contest ahead with a more formidable competitor. In my best-selling book, Berlin 1961: Kennedy, Khrushchev and the World’s Most...

      What Nord Stream 2 means for Europe

      Natural gas plays an important role in Europe. It is a bridging technology for the transition of the electricity system and has significant potential to reduce CO2 emission in the mobility and heating sectors. Nevertheless, Europe is strongly dependent on natural gas imports. While European gas demand is expected to decline in the long-term, some...
