      European Disintegration: Too Much to Lose

      For decades the search for deeper integration characterised the European Union. Today the discussion revolves around disintegration. It began with the Greek debt crisis, but only came into its own with summer 2015’s major influx of refugees and the reimposition of controls at certain borders.

      NATO Needs Deterrence and Dialogue

      Deterrence is back in Europe. As NATO approaches its July summit in Warsaw, Allies are adapting this concept to the new security settings in place in Europe since the 2014 crisis in Ukraine.

      The Future of the Minsk Agreements

      The Minsk agreements are currently the principal instrument for achieving a lasting settlement in the occupied regions of eastern Ukraine.

      The Rule of Law in Contemporary Ukraine

      Ukraine’s Euromaidan protest movement, which brought about the fall of President Yanukovych in 2014, has led to a comprehensive process of reforms. However, this process is being hampered and delayed by a large number of internal and external hurdles. There are particularly significant obstacles to establishing a state governed by the rule...

      Offshore Hydrocarbon Resources in the Arctic

      The Arctic region has been an area of low tension since the end of the Cold War. This observation is important because the run on hydrocarbons in the Arctic has not resulted in increased rivalries as expected. The outcomes have been international joint ventures in oil and gas project on the economic side and a strengthening of Arctic governance...

      A Common Energy Market in the Eurasian Economic Union

      To the east of the European Union a regional energy market is taking shape under the auspices of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). Even if the interests of the participating states diverge and the ultimate shape of the market remains unclear, the development is likely to be substantial. On the one hand, it threatens to deepen the fragmentation...

      Russia: Turn to China?

      After its relations with the West deteriorated massively in the course of the Ukraine crisis, Russia has been aligning itself increasingly towards China.
