“Europe—Yes!, but…”: European Union is more united than often asserted
For several years Europe has been muddling through the crisis. There are many "headaches" for the EU and the number is growing. The outlook for the European elections forecasts the rise of far-right parties. The possible British vote to leave the EU raises new questions: what if the EU shrinks for the first time in its history? At the joint event hostedby the DGAP and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the heads of European think tanks discussed consensus and dissent regarding the EU.

Engaging with Difficult Partners: The EU’s Iran Approach
After years of sanctions and deadlocked talks, the January 2014 launch of an interim nuclear agreement between Iran and the E3/EU+3 promises to improve relations. But a deal that would satisfy the international community’s concerns over Iran’s nuclear program and at the same time allow the country to shed its pariah status is by no means guaranteed. At the DGAP, Marietje Schaake, Bernd Erbel, and Cornelius Adebahr discussed the EU’s Iran approach and the prospect of reaching long-term agreement.

European Energy Security and the Southern Caucasus
The Southern Gas Corridor transporting Caspian natural gas to Europe is beginning to take shape. Final investment decisions were made by the operating consortium in 2013. But in what geopolitical context does the project find itself? What is Azerbaijan hoping for as natural gas provider to European customers? And what role does the EU play in developing the gas corridor? These and other questions were the focus of an international conference at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).

Why Germany should promote Human Rights in China - and How
In his recent talk at the DGAP, renowned China expert and political scientist Andrew J. Nathan made the case that the German government has a very strong interest in promoting human rights in China, even if it sets aside its “moral” concerns and so-called “Western” values. Nathan’s talk at the DGAP – and the lively debate with audience members that followed – was part of the think tank’s ongoing series addressing the respective role of values and interests in driving German foreign policy.
