    NATO Stays Far Away From the Islamic State
    Judy Dempsey September 29, 2014

    NATO has been almost completely absent in the debate about how to deal with the Islamic State. That is down to a number of fundamental differences among members of the alliance.

    Time for Mayor Power
    Misha Glenny September 26, 2014

    Publics increasingly want to place their faith in people whose work they can understand and scrutinize directly. Could a bigger role for mayors be the answer?

    Georgia and NATO—Everything But Membership
    Thomas de Waal September 24, 2014

    Georgia continues to try to prove itself a de facto ally of the United States, even without a formal alliance. This is the policy that Georgia needed all along: a stronger security relationship with the United States that makes it feel safer, without raising a red flag of NATO.

    The West’s Negative Downward Spiral Psycho Trap
    Jan Techau September 23, 2014

    Many voices have lamented the West’s impending decline. That apprehension is misplaced, as the decline is imagined: the only thing the West has to fear is fear itself.

    If the Scottish Nationalists Win, What Does London Lose?
    Alyson Bailes September 18, 2014

    As Scots go to the polls to vote on whether to leave the United Kingdom, it is clear that well-founded fears lie behind the possibility of an independent Scotland.

    The Scotland Effect

    EU and Ukraine: What a Mess
    Balázs Jarábik September 15, 2014

    The EU and Ukraine have suspended provisional application of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) until the end of 2015. Though their decision might look like Putin’s victory, this conclusion is not obvious. It is high time to stop viewing Ukraine through the prism of Russia policy.

    Postponing the Trade Agreement With Ukraine: Bad Move, EU
    Ulrich Speck September 30, 2014

    Moscow Clearly Has the Advantage Over the EU
    Balázs Jarábik September 24, 2014 Bridging Europe

    Ukraine’s further development will have a large influence on EU-Russia relations and, given the tremendous economic and social challenge Kyiv faces, Ukraine will likely remain a hot topic for both the EU and Russia.
