Foreign ministers from India, France, and Australia recently met (virtually) at the Raisina Dialogue, India’s flagship annual conference on geopolitics and geoeconomics. What can they get done if they work together?

Faced with the greatest challenge of national recovery since former President Franklin Roosevelt, President Joe Biden has made his top priority fixing America's broken home. He has subsequently chosen his foreign policy priorities carefully -- Iran, China and climate.

Future conversation needs to move beyond the military versus intelligence contest binary construct to more meaningfully explore how states may seek to use cyberspace for multiple objectives, either in sequence or in parallel.

Ensuring that Israel, the largest recipient of U.S. security assistance, complies with federal laws and international human rights standards will require closely tracking and monitoring its weapons use.
NATIA CHANKVETADZE, KETEVAN MURUSIDZEMAY 12, 2021
Divisive public discourse in Georgia about the conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia has hurt broader peacebuilding prospects and obscured the issues faced by the communities in these territories.
Ukraine’s fate is also important to the United States, because the Biden administration’s Russia policy will be an early indicator of whether the administration can manage simultaneous challenges from Beijing and Moscow.

Russia imposed a tourism ban on Turkey in apparent retribution for Turkey’s support of Ukraine. But the travel sanctions may be an own goal.

The lack of trust between citizens and their civilian institutions has led to a total inability of political institutions to respond to peoples’ demands.

The speed and pragmatism with which the EU brokered an agreement to end Georgia’s recent political crisis deserves praise. The union should take this opportunity to reflect on the role of mediation in its democracy-support strategies.
ANKIT PANDAMAY 06, 2021
The Biden administration’s North Korea policy is quietly radical in its acknowledgment that U.S. and allied security might be improved short of total denuclearization.
ERIK BRATTBERGMAY 06, 2021
The new U.S. administration has brought a welcome change in tone to transatlantic relations. But little progress has yet been made on thorny issues, including trade, technology, climate, and China.

Facebook’s Oversight Board has upheld the social media giant’s suspension of former president Donald Trump—for now. But stopping the spread of dangerous disinformation is a much more formidable challenge.

China’s economic structure and financing mechanisms are fundamentally different from the United States’ and, consequently, its experience investing in infrastructure only highlights how difficult it will be for the United States to actually compete in these terms.

What has happened with the Covid-19 vaccine–its invention, production and distribution–is a telling example of the dangerous gap between technology and politics. While the scientific effort to create and produce the Covid-19 vaccine was global, the response from governments has been local.
JESSICA TUCHMAN MATHEWSMAY 05, 2021NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
A profound global change shapes the foreign policy of the Biden administration. The United States’ global reputation as unquestionably the greatest power, with a thriving democracy and an economy envied by all, is now gone.
NATHAN J. BROWNMAY 05, 2021
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become deeply ingrained in daily life. Work must begin now to heal deep-seated divisions, which are not likely to be resolved in a burst of diplomacy.
ARIEL (ELI) LEVITEMAY 05, 2021DER TAGESSPIEGEL
It is in the EU's vital political and strategic interest not only to show diplomatic support for efforts to revive the Iran nuclear deal, but also to influence the content of the renewed nuclear deal.

Palestinian diaspora communities can help reinvigorate the Palestine Liberation Organization’s representative character so that the organization may be able to develop an effective national strategy and be better equipped to respond to the extraordinary challenges facing the Palestinian people.
MAY 04, 2021NEWSWEEK
If a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is to be found, the place to look first won’t be abroad, or to the UN, the United States, or NGOs, but much closer to home: in the hands of Palestinians and Israelis themselves.
