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.
