Heads of states come and go and, as recent events in Europe show, in a rapidly changing world, that seems to be the only opportunity for compromise and peaceful transition toward the new global realities. Yet if Erdogan would still manage to eat his cake and have it too, perhaps to everybody's surprise, he will be able to surpass Ataturk's legacy too.

In 2017, We Need To Work Together As The World Falls Apart

Baroness Jolly | Posted 12.01.2017 | UK Politics
Baroness Jolly

If 2016 proved anything it that is the current international situation is becoming less stable and predictable. In 2017, with our global institutions weaker, the re-emergence of an antagonistic Russia and the continuation of unconventional terrorist threats, the picture is not particularly rosy. The post-war global order is at risk and if we are to tackle this, it will only be achieved multilaterally.

Martin Robson

The historical record shows us that when faced with European economic and political exclusion Britons have tried to achieve their political and economic security through overseas, primarily, transatlantic connections. When we consider recent events in Europe and Europe's near abroad, it is again to those connections that Britain is likely to turn for peace and prosperity.

Let's Stick Together: Brexit Would Be a Blow to Britain's Allies

Matthew Harries | Posted 22.06.2017 | UK Politics
Matthew Harries

The sky will not fall, in foreign-policy terms, if the United Kingdom votes to leave the European Union. NATO is not going anywhere, nor is the UK's seat on the UN Security Council. But if Brexit does happen, Britain will start to find itself a little lonelier, and the West a little weaker.

Voting Remain Is the Sure-Fire Way to Destroy Nato

Christopher Carter | Posted 21.06.2017 | UK Politics
Christopher Carter

It is clear we cannot leave Britain's defence and security in the hands of the EU. A vote to Remain will validate this lie it is the EU which has maintained peace in Europe. Whether or not Trump is elected President in America will not matter in the end. America will see the EU as the future of Europe, and NATO as expensive relic of a bygone age.

Has the EU Really Saved Europe From War?

Robin Lustig | Posted 21.05.2017 | UK Politics
Robin Lustig

The EU has already been buffeted by the Eurozone and migration crises; one more major shock to the system could well mark the beginning of the end. In the words of David Cameron: 'Can we be so sure that peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt?' Like the prime minister, I would never be so rash as to make that assumption.

Refugees: There Is a Better Way

Robin Lustig | Posted 12.03.2017 | UK
Robin Lustig

Refugees want above all to be safe, and to have some hope that they can build a new and better life for themselves and their children, either in a new home or back in their old home once the conflict is over.
