    Merkel’s Silence Over Defense Will Haunt Her Successor

    Germany’s next chancellor will have to finally define Berlin’s security and defense interests. That means addressing the future of U.S. nuclear weapons stationed in the country and the desperate need to modernize Germany’s armed forces.

    Why the AUKUS Submarine Deal Is Bad for Nonproliferation—And What to Do About It

    A new security partnership, AUKUS, will deliver nuclear-powered submarines to Australia. This sets a troubling precedent for nuclear nonproliferation policy.

    What the U.S.-British-Australian Security Pact Means for Europe

    Judy Asks: Will the Afghanistan Debacle Change Your Country’s Foreign and Security Policy?

      • Looking Beyond Iran to the Persian Gulf

        Germany and Europe should not focus solely on the Iran nuclear file. Instead, they should develop a coherent and comprehensive approach to regional security that includes securing maritime routes and investing in environmental cooperation.
