The belief in the automatic triumph of the liberal world order has not only left the West unprepared to fight a long and grinding civilizational struggle. It has also actively harmed it.
Dear friends of ESI,
Please find attached our latest report on the future of enlargement policy, Albania and North Macedonia:
WASHINGTON – Chairman of the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Eliot Engel urged Admiral James Foggo to be more balanced in his future statements on Serbia’s foreign and defence policy, expressing his concern over the “alarming” relations between Belgrade and Moscow.
BELGRADE – We had the opportunity to interview Admiral James Foggo, commander of Allied Joint Force Command in Naples, during his visit to Belgrade last week. We talked with the Admiral about the current cooperation between NATO and Serbia, about KFOR, the NATO perspective of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the importance of North Macedonia’s accession to the Alliance, and whether NATO’s “brain is dead”.
Few know the importance of allies and partners better than retired Lt. Gen. Frederick "Ben" Hodges.Across his 37-year career, the former commander of both United States Army Europe (USAREUR) and the NATO Allied Land Command completed three combat tours in the Middle East and six assignments overseas. Now the Pershing Chair in Strategic Studies at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), Hodges continues to strengthen partnerships abroad. Here are his insights on the role sustainers play in deterring our adversaries.
