The Spitz to the Top
Only a “Spitzenkandidat” Should become President of the Next EU Commission
by Jana Puglierin, Julian Rappold
DGAPstandpunkt 17 (June 2019), 3 pp.
The Spitz to the Top
Now that the European elections are over, the European Parliament and the European Council are battling for the upper hand in the process to name the next president of the European Commission. While the European Parliament wants to establish the spitzenkandidat (or lead candidate) process once and for all, opposition is building in the European Council. A face-saving compromise is needed to avoid a protracted tug of war. And this simply won’t work without one of the spitzenkandidaten.

The Next Two Years in EU-U.S. Relations
by Jana Puglierin
In: Transatlantic Security Cooperation Toward 2020, Policy Paper, 25.03.2019, 18 p.
Transatlantic relations have been in a permanent state of emergency since President Donald Trump took office in 2017: for the first time since World War II, a U.S. president is not only calling into question his country’s security guarantee for Europe but also being openly skeptical of, if not hostile to, the EU.

Shaking Up the 2019 European Election
Macron, Salvini, Orbán, and the Fate of the European Party System
by Julie Hamann, Milan Nič, Jana Puglierin
DGAPanalysis 1 (February 2019), 11 pp.
Shaking Up the 2019 European Election
More fragmented than ever, Europe is at a crossroads, making the 2019 European Parliament election an immensely political event. Stakes are high for Emmanuel Macron, Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orbán, all of whom could shake up the balance of power in the EP. Macron has lost much of his initial vigor, and the disruptive potential of Salvini and Orbán is significant. If played well, their combined power could send shock waves across all European institutions.

Us and U.S.?

by Jana Puglierin
Berlin Policy Journal, Eye on Europe, September 4, 2018
Germany wants a unified Europe that speaks to the US government with a strong voice. Foreign Minister Maas is right to call for a strong Europe. But first Germany needs to strengthen its commitment to EU security and defense policy.

by Jana Puglierin
Berlin Policy Journal, August 29, 2018

How France and Germany Can Spearhead Joint Foreign Policy Initiatives Now
by Claire Demesmay, Jana Puglierin, Laure Delcour, Barbara Kunz, Stefan Meister, Andreas Rinke, Frédéric Charillon, Laura Lale Kabis-Kechrid, Dorothée Schmid
DGAPkompakt 4b (April 2018), 16 pp., Updated and extended version
Mind the Gap
Given the current instability on Europe's borders and uncertainty about the international role of the US under President Trump, it is high time for Franco-German foreign policy initiatives. However, differences between the two, both on policy issues and in their strategic cultures, also limit their cooperation. This study shows how France and Germany can bridge - and exploit - these gaps to facilitate joint initiatives on four key topics: Russia, transatlantic relations, Syria and Turkey.

A Perfect Opportunity
by Jana Puglierin, Milan Nič
Berlin Policy Journal, Eye on Europe, February 13, 2018
German-Polish relations have been rocky of late, but now Warsaw seems willing to change tack. The incoming German government should rise to the occasion and test how far the new Polish prime minister is allowed to go.
