  1. L’hyperpuissance face à l’hyperimpuissance = Hyperpower in the face of hyperimpotence. Egmont Commentary, 14 March 2003

    Dehousse, Franklin
    Si une guerre éclate en Irak, nous aurons notre part directe de responsabilité. Tout en la stigmatisant, les Européens sont par leur bêtise un des supports essentiels de la suprématie américaine. Les Etats-Unis sont une hyperpuissance d’abord parce que l’Europe est une hyperimpuissance. Lorsqu’elle stigmatise dans des discours outragés l’impérialisme américain, la classe politique européenne ne fait que contempler sa propre médiocrité dans un miroir.

  2. Oui, l’Afghanistan est important. Yes, Afghanistan is important. Egmont Commentary, 26 June 2009

    Struye, Tanguy; Renard, Thomas
    Yes, Afghanistan is important!

  3. Moldova’s political theatre. The balance of forces in an election year. OSW Commentary NUMBER 258 | 31.01.2018

    Całus, Kamil
    Since the end of 2015 Vlad Plahotniuc, an oligarch and the richest man in Moldova, leader of the ruling, nominally pro-European Democratic Party, has been de facto the only person who counts in Moldovan politics and business. He is an extremely unpopular politician who has been accused of transforming Moldova into a classic ‘captured state’. However, he has been forced to work with Igor Dodon, the country’s nominally opposition and pro-Russian President, who enjoys the most public trust, as well as with the Socialist party (PSRM) which stands behind him. Both politicians have created a particular system of government which is something like a political cartel. The...

  4. Washington’s game of ‘sanctions poker’ Russia awaits America’s decisions. OSW Commentary NUMBER 259 | 05.02.2018

    Wiśniewska, Iwona
    On 29 January, the administration of President Donald Trump sent Congress a batch of documents which provide the basis for a possible further expansion of sanctions against Russia: a report on the Russian business and political elite, and a report on the consequences of selected financial sanctions. At the same time, the authorisation for the possible introduction of extraterritorial sanctions against entities from the Russian security sector and arms industry came into effect. This was in line with the requirements of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, No. 3364 from 2 August 2017. This Act covers US sanctions against Iran, Russia and North Korea. As of...

  5. Russia’s Middle Eastern policy. Regional ambitions, global objectives. OSW Studies 71 December 2017

    Rodkiewicz, Witold
    Summary. Russia’s policy in the Middle East is part of a wider strategy aimed at creating an international order which would shield Russia against Western interference in its internal affairs and would guarantee it an equal footing with the United States. In practice, that means that Russia’s Middle Eastern policy is subordinated to the Kremlin’s global strategy towards Washington. In the Middle East, Moscow seeks to create a regional variant of what it believes to be the best model of the international order, i.e. a concert of powers that would include, apart from Russia, also the regional powers of Turkey and Iran, as well as the United States; provided...

  6. Suspended in legal limbo: Protecting investment in renewable energy in the EU. CEPS Policy Insights No 2018/03, January 2018

    Alessi, Monica; Núñez Ferrer, Jorge
    This paper focuses on the damage – and the potential for inflicting further damage – to investor confidence arising from legal uncertainties surrounding renewable energy support in some EU member states. A higher-than-expected expansion of the renewables sector, resulting in higher costs of the support, combined with the financial crisis, has driven some member states to radically curtail renewable energy support schemes. Loss-making investors unsuccessfully challenged these EU governments in national courts, arguing that their rights had been violated and denounced reforms that they considered to be retroactively punitive in nature. A number of EU-based international investors turned to international arbitration courts under the provisions of the Energy...

  7. Developing EU Capital Markets for SMEs: Mission impossible? ECMI Commentary No. 46 / 4 September 2017

    Thomadakis, Apostolos

  8. MiFID II will profoundly affect the portfolio management business. ECMI Commentary No. 47/24 January 2018

    Lannoo, Karel.
    The first indications to emerge from the impact of MiFID II, following its implementation on 3 January 2018, suggest that … more time is needed. The breadth, complexity and detail of the issues covered in the revamped version of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive meant that even the delay of one additional year in its implementation was not sufficient to adequately prepare supervisors and operators for the challenges. Judging by the last-minute Q&A updates and guidance issued by ESMA (European Markets and Securities Authority) immediately before the deadline, market participants still required clarification on many details. This process can...

  9. Income Convergence in the EU: Within-country regional patterns. CEPS Commentary, 5 February 2018

    Alcidi, Cinzia.; Musmeci, Roberto; Di Salvo, Mattia; Pilati, Marta; Núñez Ferrer, Jorge.
    Income convergence is clearly taking place within the EU as a whole, but contrasting.

  10. Candlelight, Moonlight, Olympics: Korea in Transition. IES Policy Brief Issue 2018/01 • January 2018

    Reiterer, Michael
    The surprising readiness of Kim Jong-un to re-open lines of communications and to participate in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics could strengthen President Moon who needs to change course from announcement of policies to their implementation to live up to his promise to provide jobs through income and innovation lead growth with the aim of establishing a just and fair society for all Koreans. Enhanced EU-Korean cooperation could contribute to economic and political stability and security providing substance to the 55 years’ jubilee.

  11. Don’t forget the forgotten conflict. Egmont Commentary, 30 July 2009

    Van Puijenbroeck, Joost; Vlassenroot, Koen; Titeca, Kristof
    Kristof Titeka, Joost Van Puijenbroeck and Koen Vlassenroot ask to the Belgian Foreign Minister, Mr Yves Leterme more attention to Conflict with the LRA rebels in Uganda, DR Congo, sudan and Central African Republic.

  12. Time for a European Union grand strategy. Egmont Commentary, 18 August 2009

    Biscop, Sven
    One may not be aware of it, but in its 2003 European Security Strategy (ESS) the E.U. has a grand strategy – but only a partial one. Grand strategy is about the long-term overall foreign policy objectives to be achieved and the basic categories of instruments to be applied to that end. It serves as a reference framework for day-to-day policy-making and guides the definition of the means – i.e. the civilian and military capabilities – to be developed. By nature, grand strategy has a broad scope, integrating all external policies, so in E.U. terms not just ESDP or even...

  13. EU’s strategic partnerships lack content. Egmont Commentary, 27 August 2009

    Renard, Thomas; Biscop, Sven
    Effective multilateralism is a key principle of European Union foreign policy: only in co-operation with others can the EU’s objectives be achieved peacefully, notably with emerging powers such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, commonly known as the BRICs. To engage with these global actors, the EU has created a new instrument: strategic partnerships. The actual strategy behind these is far from clear however.

  14. Afghanistan: Strategic war for Europeans, existential conflict for NATO. Egmont Commentary, 8 September 2009

    Renard, Thomas
    There is an urgent need to launch national debates (and a European debate) to define the strategic interest in Afghanistan. If we come to the conclusion that our security depends on the evolution of the situation in South Asia, then Europeans need to strengthen their efforts and assume more responsibility. Conversely, if we come to the conclusion that European deployments harm rather than benefit our security, then it will be a good time to share this view with our allies and take the logical resulting measures.

  15. Key partners and shared interests. The European convoy needs strategic guidance for fleet action. Egmont Commentary, 3 March 2010

    Biscop, Sven
    In his recent speech at the College of Europe, Herman Van Rompuy, the President of the European Council, likened the EU to a convoy of 27 ships, each flying both the national and the EU flag. If the image is apt, some Member States’ ship seems to be a submarine though, for it is not always evident that all Member States are part of the European convoy. Even a submarine is useful however, provided that it does not go off on its own initiative, but acts in coordination with the rest of the fleet, coordination to be provided by the...

  16. From ESDP to CSDP: Time for some Strategy. Egmont Commentary, 16 January 2010

    Biscop, Sven
    From ESDP to CSDP: Time for some Strategy

  17. From the new G20 to a new multilateral order. Egmont Commentary, 12 January 2010

    Renard, Thomas
    Entering a new decade with a new Treaty, the EU now possesses more tools to adapt and cope with an increasingly complex, multipolar and interdependent world. Of course, the Lisbon Treaty in itself will not transform the EU into a global superpower, nor even save.

  18. A High Representative needs a grand strategy. Egmont Commentary, 12 November 2009

    Biscop, Sven
    While everyone is eagerly awaiting who will be the successor to Javier Solana as High Representative for the European Union’s foreign policy, and who will be the first permanent President of the European Council, a more fundamental question is: which foreign policy strategy will they actually pursue?

  19. Du G2 au G20. Egmont Commentary, 10 March 2010

    Renard, Thomas
    On l’a vu à Copenhague, l’UE n’est pas capable de jouer à la realpolitik avec la Chine ou les USA. Comment arriver à un “ordre multilatéral” où l’UE ne serait pas exclue? UnG20 renforcé peut être la base d’un Nouvel Ordre Multilatéral Mondial.

  20. Time to end the ‘Copenhagen Syndrome’. Egmont Commentary, 21 March 2010

    Renard, Thomas
    Thomas Renard assesses the implications of the “interpolar” world that was on display at last December’s global climate conference in the Danish capital. This article was also published in French, under the title: ‘Après Copenhague : vers un Nouvel Ordre Multilatéral Mondial’.
