UI’s Mark Rhinard, Björn Fägersten and Roderick Parkes write about the Paris attacks and how it highlights two specific roles for the EU: border security and social integration. Read “Is Paris a Brussels problem? The EU’s role in preventing attacks by radicals.”

Mathew Burrows, director of the Atlantic Council’s Strategic Foresight Initiative, states in his article “The Big Question for 2015: What Kind of World Are We Headed For?”: “it will remain an uphill struggle to contain the growing instability, particularly in the Middle East, and the temptation by many powers – including in the West – to go it alone, intent solely on protecting their own interests.” Burrows spoke at the UI event The World of 2030.
