The Coming Brexit Breakdown?

Posted by hkarner - 2. Mai 2017

Following British Prime Minister Theresa May’s invocation of Article 50 in March, many experts believe there is a strong chance that the coming UK-EU breakup talks will be calamitous for both sides. Mark Leonard, director of the European Council on Foreign Relations, explains why.

Since British Prime Minister Theresa May activated Article 50, formally starting the process of UK withdrawal from the EU, both sides have been adjusting their positions. May has signaled her support for EU unity and indicated that free movement may continue during a transition period. Meanwhile, the EU has agreed to discuss the outlines of a future trade agreement while the divorce talks go on.

And yet, because of the competing logics of the two sides, many experts think there is still a strong chance that the talks will result in tragedy for both.

May has revealed her hierarchy of goals, which reflects a belief that some things are more important than money. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Planning for President Le Pen

Posted by hkarner - 20. April 2017

The thought of President Le Pen is so terrifying, it seems, posing such a threat to the future of Europe, that it remains for many a possibility they dare not entertain, much less plan for. But that threat is precisely why Europe must address seriously the possibility of her winning, however unlikely it may seem.

LONDON – Alone again. Since World War II’s end, Europe has looked at the world through a transatlantic lens. There have been ups and downs in the alliance with the United States, but it was a family relationship built on a sense that we would be there for each other in a crisis and that we are fundamentally like-minded.

Donald Trump’s election as US president threatens to bring this to an end – at least for now. He believes more in walls and oceans than solidarity with allies, and has made it clear that he will put America not just first, but second and third as well. “We will no longer surrender this country, or its people,” he declared in his one major foreign-policy speech, “to the false song of globalism.”

Europeans will not only have to get used to Trump; they will have to look at the world through different eyes. There are four reasons to expect that Trump’s America will be the single biggest source of global disorder. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Theresa May’s Nasty Britain

LONDON – British Prime Minister Theresa May once warned her fellow Conservatives of the perils of being known as the “nasty party.” But after 100 days in office, she is in danger of going further, turning the United Kingdom into the nasty country.

In just a few months, May has launched attacks on “international elites” and decided to prioritize immigration controls over single-market access in negotiating the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. At one point recently, companies faced the threat of being compelled to furnish a list of their foreign workers. And the 3.5 million European citizens who are settled in the UK were left to worry about whether May’s government would guarantee their residence rights. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Playing Defense in Europe

LONDON – The most frightening periods in history have often been interregnums – moments between the death of one king and the rise of the next. Disorder, war, and even disease can flood into the vacuum when, as Antonio Gramsci put it in his Prison Notebooks, “the old is dying and the new cannot be born.” The dislocation and confusion of 2016 do not rival the turmoil of the interwar period, when Gramsci wrote, but they are certainly symptoms of a new interregnum.

After the end of the Cold War, the world was held together by an American-policed security order and a European-inspired legal order. Now, however, both are fraying, and no candidates to replace them have yet emerged. Indeed, unlike in 1989, this is not a crisis of a single type of system. Countries as different as Brazil, China, Russia, and Turkey are coming under heightened political and economic pressure. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
