Transformation of NATO and Turkey’s Position

“NATO is the most successful defence alliance in modern history.” While some may argue that this is a superficial cliché and that the Alliance is fast becoming irrelevant, others believe that this is a truthful statement reflecting the Alliance’s well-deserved prominent place, not only in the annals of history but also in today’s and, most probably, tomorrow’s security environment.

The people don’t love Brussels, the experts do

The Irish have overwhelmingly rejected the Lisbon Treaty. Why isn’t the EU popular with Europeans? And what can the EU do about it?

The future of US foreign policy: a reply

I had hoped to provide an occasion for thoughtful debate with my essay “What next? US foreign policy after Bush” (12 February 2007), and am therefore pleased by the insightful responses from Mary Kaldor, Richard Falk, Sankaran Krishna, Mark Kingwell, Mark Luccarelli and David Rieff.

Sarkozy’s rightwing revolution

The television images in France on the evening of Sunday 6 May 2007 might have suggested that there were two winners of the presidential election. Only a few minutes after 8pm, when exit-polls announced the victory of rightwing candidate Nicolas Sarkozy by 53.06% to 46.94% over the socialist Ségolène Royal, Royal appeared on television with a forced smile, surrounded by …
