Hajnalka Vincze is a foreign and defense policy analyst. Her writings decrypt the intricacies of European and transatlantic relations, with a particular focus on the key role played by France. She analyses both current policy developments and the strategic impact of defense-related technological and industrial choices. She takes a clear stand in favor of a well-balanced transatlantic relationship, in which a strategically autonomous Europe would act as a fully independent, equal partner to the United States.

A year away from the next U.S. elections (and with Brexit forever dragging on), an unprecedented window of opportunity is about to slam shut for France. ...

An increasinly all-encompassing NATO
IVERIS

For the past twenty years, the United States has been pushing the Alliance to become “global”, on the grounds that it must adapt to new risks and threats if it wants “to stay relevant” (meaning: to be useful for American interests and to ensure, in exchange, that the USA stays engaged on the old continent). After all, it is only fair. Except that for the European allies this would mechanically lead to giving up their own policies.
