The Great Powers have their Ways

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Jan 08, 2018 | Egmont -Royal Institute for International Relations, Sven Biscop

The policies adopted by the Great Powers determine the world order – or the absence thereof. In his paper for the Egmont -Royal Institute for International Relations, Sven Biscop explores whether China and the EU have an alternative to the grand strategies that Russia and the US are again pursuing. He suggests that grand strategy should integrate security, political and economic objectives and instruments. Current Russian and American strategies do not do this.  The smart power of the moment is China, which is increasing its reach without alienating its target countries. EU strategy would be more effective if Member States would use their instruments to change a world order in flux, to a new system based on cooperation rather than confrontation.
