The Nuclear Deal and Beyond
by Cornelius Adebahr
Europe and Iran The Nuclear Deal and Beyond, by Cornelius Adebahr, 2017 Routledge, 196 pages

Is Populism on the Run?
Judy Dempsey Asks Milan Nič and Other Experts
by Milan Nič
Carnegie Europe Blog, April 2017
Milan Nič argues that relief at the first round of the French presidential elections might be misguided: not only did populist candidates altogether receive almost half the vote, the Front National could also win June’s parliamentary elections. While several European countries are in fact already governed by populists, Europe continues to face the danger of populism seeping into the mainstream and shaping agendas – irrespective of whether populists win an election.

Three Challenges for a Macron Presidency And Two Recommendations for Germany
by Daniela Schwarzer
DGAPstandpunkt 5 (April 25, 2017), 3 pages
Emmanuel Macron's presidency could be the last chance for liberal-minded politicians in France to reform the country – and the EU. Failure to do so could pave the way in five years’ time for a far-right or far-left president who would then begin undoing the EU.

Brussels – and Berlin – urgently need to reengage. After an extended absence, the Western Balkans finally returned to the European agenda at the March 9 EU summit. The DGAP's new Central Europe expert contributes to the DGAP's Berlin Policy Journal.

Assessing the 2017 Munich Security Conference
Assessing the 2017 Munich Security ConferenceThe liberal order is under unprecedented pressure
by Daniela Schwarzer, Sylke Tempel
The stakes were high, expectations even higher at this year’s Munich Security Conference (MSC): The liberal order, created by the United States after World War II, is under pressure, not least – ironically enough – from the new US administration. The social, political, and economic consequences of technological innovation are enormous. And there is, at least in Western liberal democracies, a growing sense of uncertainty.
