Strategic Trends 2014
After providing a synoptic Introduction, this version of CSS’s "Strategic Trends" series explores five ways in which the world's geopolitical balance is shifting. The topics addressed include 1) the problems Russia’s increasingly aggressive foreign policy poses for the West, 2) the EU’s eroding influence in its southern neighborhood, 3) the 'Talibanization' of radical Islamists in other parts of the world, 4) the gradual erosion of the US-led global security architecture, and 5) the growing 'strategic pragmatism' of US foreign policy under Barack Obama.
