Glimmer of hope for the Common Security and Defence Policy

One of the priorities of the EU is a commitment to enhanced cooperation in the area of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The process initiated in September 2016 to further strengthen the CSDP includes pragmatic measures. In view of the security policy challenges the EU is facing, the proposals only represent a small step in the long run. Further steps in both institutional and operational terms are required to turn the CSDP into an effective instrument. Olaf Wientzek, Jan. 26, 2017 more...

Zika and Ebola: What we should learn from health crises

Health crises such as Ebola and Zika will be the rule rather than the exception. The international community should adapt to this reality and implement the far-reaching reforms developed after the Ebola crisis. It would be a mistake to orient reforms in global health policy too strictly on an Ebola-specific scenario. Zika has shown that every health crisis presents different challenges. Germany has assumed a leadership role in global health policy in recent years and can make a significant contribution with its partners to strengthen the international health architecture.

Beyond Deterrence

NATO’s Agenda after Warsaw
The landmark decision the Summit will be remembered for is the establishment of the Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP), which establishes a constant rotational (and thus “persistent”) presence of a total of four multinational allied battalions in Poland and each of the Baltic republics. With its decision, NATO closes the military gap between “old” and “new” allies by establishing a credible deterrence posture for its Eastern members.

Global Health as a Prerequisite for Security and Stability

Social Bots

Invasion of the social bots
„Social bots are software robots programmed by humans. They collect information and data, but also systematically introduce trends and key topics into social media without users being aware of it. The influencing potential – the so-called “bot effect” – is theoretically very large, but difficult to prove empirically. Simon Hegelich, Sep. 27, 2016 more...
