Europe at a Turning Point

We're pleased to announce the publication of a new series of CIFE Policy Papers, entitled "Europe at a Turning Point".

The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine is a turning point for the European Union in many different respects. Practically all the EU’s policy areas are affected by it, from its common foreign and security policy to its position in relation to its allies, like the United States, and to key geopolitical actors such as China. The war impacts our energy security, energy costs and the way we need to organise our transition to carbon-neutral sources. Inflation has returned to Europe, and many citizens feel overwhelmed by the accumulation of crises since the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020.

The volume is edited by Matthias Waechter, Director General of CIFE, Aline Palige, Editor of CIFE Policy Papers, and Laurent Baechler, Director of CIFE Policy Papers.
