For Europeans these are unsettling times, times of ‘global confusion’, ‘in a world that is terribly unpredictable and “un-strategic”’ (EU High Representative/Vice-President Mogherini). The consequences of the UK leaving the EU are unpredictable; populists – from the Sweden Democrats to the National Rally (formerly National Front) and the AfD in Germany – stir exclusive sentiments; the European debt crisis has fostered Euroscepticism (and leftist nationalism); and since Donald J. Trump took up the office of US President the Transatlantic Relationship is in trouble, not to mention the general questioning of the usefulness of international norms, regimes and institutions, and the basics of diplomacy. Over and above, Europe sees itself confronted with an increasing number of people from the Middle East and from across the African continent who wish to migrate to the EU or seek refuge from the consequences of violent conflicts and insecurity in Europe’s neighbourhood.
So, where is Europe heading?More >

Almost two years after winning the Presidency of the United States, Donald Trump is historically unpopular, yet retains the strong support of the base of the Republican Party. In November comes his first major electoral test – congressional midterm elections. If Democrats can win a majority in the House of Representatives, President Trump will find his political agenda blocked, and his presidency facing the threat of impeachment. The stakes couldn’t be higher. These elections could decide the future of Trump’s Presidency, as well as America’s future role in the world.
