Us and U.S.?
Not all in Europe want to be a “counterweight” to Donald Trump’s United States
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

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.

Atlanticist and “Post-Atlanticist” Wishful Thinking
by Jana Puglierin, Hans Kundnani
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), Policy Essay No. 01/2018, January 3, 2018
Atlanticist and “Post-Atlanticist” Wishful Thinking
The publication of an Atlanticist manifesto by a group of leading German foreign policy analysts has prompted a lively debate about whether or not Germany, and by extension the European Union, should “preserve” the transatlantic partnership or decouple itself from the United States and pursue a “post-Atlanticist” foreign policy.

When Worlds Collide
US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel stand for conflicting conceptions of the West.
by Jana Puglierin
Berlin Policy Journal, July 2017
US President Trump’s understanding of the West, as sketched out in his Warsaw speech, is actually very Polish – or rather, PiS-ish. Meanwhile, Angela Merkel’s West is a place where people share certain fundamental political beliefs, including liberal democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and gender equality

Say it with feeling
Germany is Europe’s de facto leader. But it needs to change its style
by Claire Demesmay, Jana Puglierin, Julian Rappold
International Politics and Society, July 21, 2017
Leadership can foster resentment. As Germany has taken a stronger role in responding to the crises gripping Europe, mistrust towards Berlin has increased. Germany’s handling of the refugee and Eurozone crises has not met with universal approval, and some regard the country’s unparalleled influence as part of the problem. Germany shouldn’t give in to calls to step away from the reigns. But it does need to change the way it leads, or risk a further erosion of confidence.
