  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - Esprit de contradiction
    • Abstract: Ricketts, Rita
      Friends knew Paddy Costello as funny, noisy, irreverent, argumentative, acerbic, occasionally appallingly drunk and a latter day minstrel. But Costello, a forensic Irish smartarse, who would not tug his forelock to his British elders and betters, raised the Establishment's hackles. Even more damning, he could speak Russian and understood the Russian psyche. So, of course, he had to be a Soviet agent in MI5's eyes. Whether or not Costello was a spy is still debated. Although the recently released MI5 files will provide ammunition for his detractors, they offer little more substantive proof.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - Alister McIntosh's 'best' diplomat
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Paddy Costello was Alister McIntosh's best-ever diplomat. Costello's intellect was too original and sceptical to be an agent for any other power than New Zealand. A communist when a student at Cambridge, his subsequent four years fighting had matured him ahead of becoming a New Zealand diplomat in 1944. Costello's misfortune from the perspective of Britain's MI5 security organisation was that he fell in love with and married a tough-minded British communist. McIntosh read Costello accurately and got him to work brilliantly, but had to let him go: while Peter Fraser had confidence in McIntosh on Costello, his successor as prime minister, Sidney Holland, did not.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - Adjusting to political earthquakes
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Terence
      Both in Europe and the United States political earthquakes have reinforced a present sense of indomitable change in global affairs. The British decision to leave the European Union and the election of Donald Trump as US president have unleashed a deluge of analysis and prediction, but the outcome remains uncertain. Compounding the problem, these changes coincide with a wider seismic shift at the centre of gravity in the world economy. The goalposts on the international economic playing field are changing and, in the process, altering the global pecking order. Greater diversity is inevitable as the tectonic plates shift below the global economy.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - Overseeing New Zealand's modern military operations
    • Abstract: Ball, Rhys
      New Zealand's special operations forces continue to make a valuable contribution to this country's national security. However, in light of the recent 'Hit and Run' allegations, and the prime minister's response, there is a possible fragility of New Zealand's democratic processes around military deployment. A review of New Zealand's constitutional structure for making such commitments indicates that the executive power to act militarily continues to rest in the hands of only a few people. In the circumstances, it might be an opportune moment to consider a possible role for an independent oversight mechanism to make procedures more robust and transparent.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - New Zealand's strategic context: One or many
           scenarios'
    • Abstract: Hoadley, Stephen
      At least six strategic scenarios have emerged recently, two driven by the United States, one each by Europe, Russia and China, and one by diverse anarchic forces. US-led global hegemonic stability, which is favourable to New Zealand's interests, is under stress from not only foreign challengers but also the White House. New Zealanders, unable to shape their strategic environment, are obliged to be ever watchful and adaptable so as to mitigate the negative effects of emerging scenarios and to take advantage of any opportunities they may present.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - A modern French revolution
    • Abstract: Nichols, Emma
      When Emmanuel Macron founded his own independent political movement in April 2016, few rated his chances of winning the French presidency. One year on, President Macron's party boasts an absolute majority in the French lower house, and has begun implementing an ambitious domestic reform package, as well as a packed policy agenda in both European and foreign affairs. President Macron has many challenges to face and tightropes to walk. If tougher reforms are frontloaded earlier in his presidency, as his government is doing, they may begin to bear fruit just in time for the next presidential election in 2022.

  • Volume 42 Issue 6 - The MI5 verdict
    • Abstract: McGibbon, Ian
      Whatever the truth about Paddy Costello's allegiance, one fact is known: towards the end of his life, MI5 concluded that he was a Soviet agent. There had been suspicions for nearly three decades, of course, but after taking his professorship in Manchester Costello fell off MI5's radar, at least for a time. The focus returned to him in the early 1960s, though not for the commonly supposed reason of his alleged involvement in the Kroger affair - the issue of New Zealand passports to Peter and Helen Kroger (who were in fact Soviet spies Maurice and Leontina Cohen) by the New Zealand Legation in Paris in 1954 when Costello was on the staff; in possession of perfectly forged documents, the Krogers needed no illicit assistance in obtaining the passports. Nothing on Costello's recently released MI5 file indicates any suspicion falling on him when this was revealed in 1961.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Why Poland is a threat to the European union
    • Abstract: McMillan, Stuart
      The Law and Justice Party in Poland is pursuing policies, including legal ones, putting it at odds with most of the rest of the European Union. Judicial, secular and liberal values are at stake. The present Polish government is strengthening Euroscepticism, populism and nationalism at the expense of the ideals on which the European Union was founded. These challenges come at a time when the soon-to-be 27-member union is already under stress from migration and other pressures. But what the union can or will do about it remains to be seen. Poland's departure from democratic norms strengthens non-liberal forms of government.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Seeking opportunities in a turbulent world
    • Abstract: English, Bill
      We live in turbulent times, but this is nothing new in the history of international affairs. Although the international environment is beyond New Zealand's control, an optimistic approach will serve it well. New Zealand likes to focus on those areas where it can make progress, such as the Pacific Islands and Australia. Trade is another such area. Our goal is to have 90 per cent of our export trade covered by free trade agreements by 2030. In a world where protectionism is apparently growing, we are making more progress than we have made for some time. Hopes for the TPP are not dead.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Meeting the challenge of the globalisation paradox
    • Abstract: Little, Andrew
      Labour's historic record in forging an independent foreign policy has always been the product of ambitious and principled thinking. That tradition must be maintained if New Zealand is to ensure that its voice is heard in a changing and unpredictable world. New Zealand must ensure that it continues to be trusted as an honest broker and a strong and principled actor in international affairs. An approach to international affairs that is outward looking and does not shy from the huge challenges that we face as a global community is essential. Above all, the growing disillusionment across many sectors of society must be addressed.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Towards a new global compact
    • Abstract: Shaw, James
      International affairs at present are in a troubled state, with many challenges. But there are also opportunities. The Green Party believes that urgent action is needed. It strongly believes that a new global compact is needed for the 21st century. Such an instrument could emerge from the existing values and principles articulated in recent UN declarations and through reform of the United Nations. It depends on political vision and will. In the vexed area of climate change the Green Party favours a strong interpretation of the Paris Agreement. A Green government would put climate change front and centre of trade policy.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Alister McIntosh: a mandarin for all seasons
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Sid Holland and Walter Nash were the winter and spring 'seasons' for Alister McIntosh's 23-year tutelage of his quartet of prime ministers, Peter Fraser, Sid Holland, Walter Nash and Keith Holyoake. Nash enabled McIntosh to flourish at his finest and that, in turn, enhanced Nash's 'tea and conversation' encounters with global leaders, particularly his British counterpart, Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. Whereas Holland required McIntosh to play defence as he sought to construct a foreign service populated with New Zealand's best. Nowhere was this more apparent than in his efforts to shield controversial diplomat Paddy Costello from Holland's efforts to remove him.

  • Volume 42 Issue 5 - Peace and justice
    • Abstract: Troup, George
      To what extent do the legal institutions in The Hague contradict the proposition that 'might is right' in international affairs' The answer to this question may be sought in an examination, through a generalist political lens, of the origins and performance of the individual institutions. The two main aspects are dispute settlement and penal, including war crimes tribunals set up in response to specific situations in the former Yugoslavia and elsewhere. While aspirations such as ending impunity have not been achieved, there has been useful progress in extending the rule of law internationally, with a degree of acquiescence by major powers.

  • Volume 42 Issue 4 - What does the future hold for the united Nations'
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Terence
      Both the role and potential of the United Nations, and the international legitimacy it embodies, are being challenged by multiple layers of change. The UN system was designed in a largely different era in order to prevent war and to foster peace, prosperity and equality. Many of its structures, notably the composition of its Security Council, are outdated or unco-ordinated. Inefficiencies abound. In practice and over a prolonged period, effective reform across the board in the United Nations has proved impossible. But the system needs to move with the times. The growing tendency for great powers to sideline the world body must be resisted.

The balance of power system set up by major countries in 1648 still rules. How was it done and how is this system perpetuated' Instrumental reason - the narrow sort used in courts to justify any position whatever - was not invented by Grotius, but he was among the first to show how it could be used to advance the national secular interest (as opposed to the interests of princes and the church). He thus bears heavy responsibility for the state of the international order today.

    • Abstract: Steadman, Hugh
      New Zealanders and the rest of humanity face an existential crisis such as other living species have not experienced since the Permian-Triassic extinction event (also known as the great dying) of 250 million years ago, during which an estimated 96 per cent of all living species were lost. Now we are well embarked on the Earth's sixth such calamitous event. This time it is our species that is causing it and only our actions that can prevent it. For humanity to survive this crisis, national governments need to reject the democratic imperative of not alarming their populations.

  • Volume 42 Issue 4 - Regional security: Challenges and opportunities
    • Abstract: Mitchell, Mark
      New Zealand's future depends on it remaining outward looking and engaged with the world. The government takes an optimistic view, and rejects the thinking that we have reached a point where our threats have overwhelmed our opportunities. It believes that responses to global threats are only effective when all states, no matter their size, have the opportunity to share their views and perspectives. As a connected global citizen, New Zealand is not immune to these threats. It is constantly challenging itself on how best to use its resources and capabilities to contribute, credibly and effectively, to countering global threats, as it has done effectively in the past.

  • Volume 42 Issue 4 - A very complicated business
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Long-serving Secretary of External Affairs Alister McIntosh played a significant role in the Canadian Arnold Smith becoming the first Commonwealth secretary-general in 1965. McIntosh skilfully out-manoeuvred British officials, who sought to deny him and Smith the slot. McIntosh was himself a candidate for the position but accepted late in the piece that he was not to be the secretary-general. His, and his wife's, health ruled him out of the move to London for such an arduous assignment. McIntosh's moves to help Smith's appointment were successful in large part because his prime minister, Keith Holyoake, was with him in rebuffing the British.

      When people think about New Zealand's most famous son, Sir Edmund Hillary, they mostly think about the quiet Auckland beekeeper who conquered Everest in 1953. Of course, there is much more to the man. He raised money for the Sherpa communities in Nepal that built schools, hospitals and much more. His commitment to the people of South Asia was also reflected in his successful term in the 1980s as New Zealand's high commissioner to India.

    • Abstract: McCully, Murray
      After more than eight years in office Murray McCully resigned from his position as foreign minister. Although initially keen to minimise overseas travel, he found that such activity was essential to performing his role. The official visit and the formal meeting are the essential currency of international relations. He sought to bring an independent New Zealand perspective to foreign policy and strove for bipartisanship in formulating foreign affairs and trade policies. At the heart of his approach was his belief that New Zealand has a great international brand, a proud history and a unique contribution to make to its region and to world affairs.

      Switzerland's approach to international affairs has much in common with New Zealand's. Both countries share values and principles and strongly support the United Nations. But unlike New Zealand, a founding member, Switzerland is a relatively recent member of the world body, only joining in 2002. Aspiring to a term on the Security Council in future and keen to gain experience in council affairs, it was pleased to be able take part in an unusual arrangement agreed by the two countries' foreign ministers. This involved embedding a Swiss diplomat in the MFAT team supporting New Zealand's effort on the council.

      Bob Dylans hit tune of the mid-1960s has lyrics as prophetic today as 50 years ago. Together with other turbulent issues, the Brexit outcome and President Trump's victory have disturbed what had been a largely stable and predictable world. This has unsettled the established rules about how nations manage their relations with each other, and applied pressure to the economic and security architecture that guided the post-war global order. In this unfamiliar, fluid setting, New Zealand must continue to protect its core interests, have its concerns heard and to do so maintain access and exert influence. Much political engagement and policy activity is underway to that end.

      Many uncertainties surround the likely course of the presidency of Donald Trump, which is still in its early days. He has taken a number of measures that have created controversy. Self-inflicted problems have dogged his early days in the White House. So far Trump has not been confronted by a testing crisis that arises from external provocation, misunderstanding or disaster. It is sure to come, and the best that can be hoped for is a good-bad crisis, one that engages US attention and drives Trump towards a more orthodox approach to international relations in which he reaches out to allies and partners.

      Following the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet bloc, Beijing adjusted to the new situation and ensured that China would not share the fate of Soviet communism. While China has positioned itself as a strong, independent power, its security and well-being have continued to depend above all on its relations with the United States. These relations, never particularly easy, are now entering a demanding and unpredictable phase. Since the advent of the Trump administration disturbing, but not irresistible, tendencies have been discernible in US - Chinese interaction, with trust issues in particular now increasingly to the fore.

      Seeking to resolve the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula has dogged a number of United States administrations. During his recent visit to South Korea, the new secretary of state outlined a different approach and talked of a military option. His basic approach was that the era of 'strategic patience' was over, meaning that there would be no more coaxing of North Korea to give up its development of nuclear weaponry by offers of aid, money or engagement in talks. He also said that all options, including military ones, were on the table. But in reality the options for dealing with North Korea are limited.

      The recent US presidential campaign was notable for the violence, implied or explicit, that was at times apparent during Donald Trump's rallies. Much hatred was focused on Hillary Clinton, with calls to lock her up or worse. Clinton came to be seen by many Trump supporters as the embodiment of evil, with unfounded allegations of sexual and other improprieties. For students of history, this unfair disparagement of Clinton seemed similar to the hatred that developed in the last days of France's ancient regime towards the queen, Marie Antoinette, who came to be seen as the cause of the country's ills because of her profligate spending.

      John Key was a prime minister of two halves - brilliant at home; inconsequential on the world stage. He acknowledged the latter with his self-inflicted epigram that he was 'a junior world leader'. Key was not wired for global diplomacy. He did the requisite obligations, but perfunctorily until he engaged with New Zealand's bids for the United Nations Security Council and for Helen Clark to become the UN secretary-general. Key's oft-reported 'good personal relationship' with Barack Obama fails scrutiny - there was no oft-heralded presidential visit to New Zealand. Nor, ever a second game of golf.

      Long-held principles of economic co-operation and integration are being challenged by political change in the United States and new questioning about the pace and impact of globalisation. Past models have been driven by business change and the growth of global value chains. The Trans- Pacific Partnership marked an attempt to enable regulatory systems to encompass this change. There are other pathways towards the goal of freer trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific region, including the RCEP, although it lacks ambition. American leadership is not yet being replaced by Chinese. In this situation, New Zealand must continue to explore all options for integration, including TPP (11).

      There have been significant changes within the Pacific Islands region and its wider geopolitical environment. Uncertainties abound, both politically and environmentally. These developments have not been fully reflected in New Zealand policies. Arguably, a number of our policies no longer fully meet New Zealand interests or the interests of our neighbours. Changes and developments in the region call for consideration of a New Zealand policy reset in several areas. While most New Zealand's policies in the Pacific are successful or essential, there is scope for considering adjustment to policies that are partially successful, while some policies should be stopped, radically changed or replaced.

      In the past half century China has gone from being an isolated country in the throes of Maoist self-destruction to being a regional and even global player of growing authority. During this time it saw out its first major alliance, with the Soviet Union, and engaged in various kinds of accommodation with the United States before achieving its current state of self-confident independence. In coming to terms with Washington in the early 1970s China took one of the most dramatic turns of events in the 20th century, a step that was designed to offset a military threat from the erstwhile Soviet ally.

    • Abstract: Steadman, Hugh
      The newly installed Trump presidency would appear to offer the potential for a sea-change in US foreign policy. America's foreign policy under President Obama's administration included a number of failures - in nuclear policy, in Europe, in Asia, in Africa and in the Middle East. There were successes too. These include the avoidance of large-scale involvement of American forces in any ground war, the re-establishment of American dominance in Latin America and, most importantly, his agreement with China, which paved the way for the Paris Accord on climate change. The Obama administration will be remembered for providing a relatively peaceful intermission after the Bush years.

      The Trump administration will pose many challenges for New Zealand, not the least being the abandonment of United States leadership of free trade liberalism. However, given the importance of the United States, New Zealand will also need to look for the opportunities that the new administration will present. One such opportunity may present itself as a result of Brexit. Britain will be seeking free trade agreements with its partners. New Zealand is already first in line. President Trump also wants a free trade deal with Britain. A free trade agreement of the 'Five Eyes' nations becomes a real possibility. This is a strategic opportunity that New Zealand must pursue.

It was also part of his plan to strengthen Japan against China. After the visit he signed a new defence agreement with Australia and sought to shore up Japanese and US influence in South-east Asia with a series of visits in January.

      Donald Trump made a number of key strategic decisions during his election campaign. Contrary to the common view that his campaign was marked by incompetence and dysfunction, there is considerable evidence that he made adroit decisions at key times. These were overlooked and dismissed by his political opponents to their ultimate disadvantage and defeat. If the Democratic Party hopes to take back the White House in four years' time, and the wider world wants to understand the 'Trump phenomenon', it is imperative that we look at the logical thread that underlies Trump's seemingly irrational behaviour.

How Clinton had managed to lose an election to a candidate as divisive and, hitherto, unpopular as Donald Trump is providing unending copy for the media and baffling observers. For a woman to follow a black president was seemingly a bridge too far in the prevailing culture of myth, misogyny and mendacity.

Taking their cue from populist histories, their leaders have highlighted the importance of the struggle in the birth of their respective nations. At all levels of society, the centenary has sparked renewed interest in the experience of ordinary Australians and New Zealanders in their brutal encounter with industrialised warfare.

      The long-awaited New Zealand Defence White Paper 2016, released in May, has signalled a paradigm shift in Wellington's response to the shifting geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific region. It calls for further strengthening of its existing defence arrangements with the United States, Australia, Indonesia and Japan. The white paper has also reaffirmed the importance of the South Pacific in New Zealand's geopolitical perspective and provided a predominantly maritime strategic outlook. This change reflects Wellington's efforts in recent years to restructure New Zealand's three armed services and to modernise them to meet current and future requirements.

      New Zealand faces a world very different to the one that shaped its identity in the 20th century. That world, centred on the Atlantic, is in a state of turmoil because of the Brexit decision. But a fundamental change has occurred, as the world economy's centre of gravity has shifted. Asia in particular has become an economic powerhouse. These changes are having major impact on New Zealand's external interests, and are affecting its sense of place in the world. New challenges have emerged. So too have dangers. New Zealand must adjust to a world marked by the arrival of successful non-Western powers with different histories, culture and interests.

  • Volume 41 Issue 6 - Game changer competition
    • Abstract: Steff, Reuben
      An increasingly complex arms competition is underway between the United States, Russia and China. While the United States is in the lead across a range of current and emerging systems, it can no longer take its position for granted, and there is an urgent need for greater attention to be paid to this competition as the strategic consequences are unknown. Furthermore, an opportunity exists for countries like New Zealand to seize the initiative and play a role in advancing arms control programmes that promote collective reassurance and will enhance international security.

  • Volume 41 Issue 6 - Defence: An evolving approach
    • Abstract: Brownlee, Gerry
      New Zealand faces an uncertain and unstable international strategic environment. Changes in the last fifteen years have forced new attention to its security. Technological change is having a significant impact, and has greatly increased the risk of hostile action against our infrastructure or economy. New Zealanders, both at home and abroad, are not immune to terrorist attacks. The growing challenges have been addressed in the Defence white paper released in June. The plans it outlines reflect strong commitment by the government to maintaining a well-equipped and responsive defence force that can respond to a range of likely security challenges in the future.

  • Volume 41 Issue 6 - New Zealand and the world
    • Abstract: Little, Andrew
      The international outlook is clouded with uncertainties. The world may be at one of those junctures in global history that come around every 30 years or so where the established order and political orthodoxies are overwhelmed by either their own shortcomings or deep-seated public disillusion, or both. The challenge for the world is how to build a global order where everyone has security - physical and economic - and where nobody is left out. The New Zealand Labour Party, now one hundred years old, has made major contributions to New Zealand's foreign policy, and to international affairs in our region and worldwide.

  • Volume 41 Issue 6 - An independent foreign policy
    • Abstract: Mapp, Wayne
      New Zealand's two major political parties, and the likely lead parties in coalition government, see New Zealand as a Western nation, one that is closely linked to the United States, even if not as an ally. It is, therefore, more than likely that New Zealand will be an active participant in Western causes. This presents challenges in sustaining an independent foreign policy. There are several models that New Zealand could consider: the South American, the Nordic or the Canadian. Creative thinking will be needed in future if New Zealand is to take advantage of the opportunities inherent in its approach.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - Putting our refuge hand up
    • Abstract: Kennedy, Molly
      The United Nations high commissioner for refugees is currently seeing larger displacements than at any other time on record. The latest figures show 65.3 million displaced persons, 21.3 million of whom are refugees. New Zealand has a proud and successful history of refugee resettlement, including resettling Polish children fleeing the Second World War, Cambodian refugees fleeing the Killing Fields and more recently families fleeing conflict in Syria. However, New Zealand has the capacity to do more, both within our borders and as a potential regional and global leader in refugee protection.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - NATO's summit of unity
    • Abstract: Gniatkowski, Zbigniew
      The Warsaw NATO Summit has shown that the Alliance can be stronger in defence and deterrence. Its outcome strengthens the security of the eastern and southern flanks and serves as a clear signal that NATO is determined to defend its territory. We stand firmly by our values and remain determined to uphold the principles of international law. The summit helped to reinforce NATO-EU co-operation and ties with other partners. With 2200 delegates and 1500 journalists, it was the largest high-level event ever organised in Poland. It was also very successful, both in terms of decisions made and the unique atmosphere of Polish hospitality.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - Europe after the British exit: Demise or
           reinvention'
    • Abstract: Hoadley, Stephen
      From a European perspective the impact of Britain's exit from the European Union will be significant. Possible scenarios range from business-as-usual through the decline of Europe as a global actor to the breakup of the union altogether. The first scenario seems the most likely, despite pessimistic media headlines. This prediction is based on an assessment of the strength of the economic, legal, security and political foundations of European stability even in the absence of its erstwhile second largest member. There will, however, be a period of economic and political uncertainty lasting two to three years.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - Brexit: A long march
    • Abstract: Ricketts, Rita
      The centenary of the Battle of the Somme fell exactly a week after the momentous EU referendum. Had Britain, in voting to leave the European Union, broken faith with the dead' Even Brexit supporters, who had not imagined a No vote, experienced a feeling of loss. Friends overseas sent messages of sympathy as though after the death of a distant relative. But could European leaders have expected anything more from 'la Perfide Albion'' Back in Blighty former civil servants, usually arch-pragmatists, spared no one's feelings. Britain, as in Iraq, had made a decision for which there was no exit plan. Recanters hastened to reassure: Britain is leaving the European Union, not Europe.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - The Obama presidency
    • Abstract: Gilbert, Mark
      Barack Obama's nuanced approach to the world, as well as his depth and breadth of knowledge, were evident before he was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. In the last seven years he has met many challenges and accomplished much, confirming this assessment. One of his major achievements was saving the United States and the global economy from a major depression. His recovery plan included an aggressive pursuit of energy independence. On foreign policy he has acted on the premise that American leadership must be based on respect for the universal values the United States stands for and on international co-operation.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - Peter Fraser's post-war diplomacy
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      It is little known that Peter Fraser was under consideration to be the United Nations' first secretary-general. In contrast to the high quality writing on Fraser's contribution to the Allies' war-time leadership, Fraser's post-war United Nations and Commonwealth accomplishments and his succouring the trans-Tasman/Anzac connection have not been collectively canvassed in any masterly scholarly foray. After the war Fraser was restless, lured by the duty of care he felt for global affairs. His engagement with world leaders in the post-war years is now more publicly accessible.

  • Volume 41 Issue 5 - New Zealand and the United nations 70 years on
    • Abstract: McCully, Murray
      In 1945, New Zealand joined with 49 other nations in the post- Second World War era to establish the United Nations. We played an active role in the negotiation of the UN Charter, setting the rules and principles to govern global relations. Our positions in 1945 included opposing the veto for the five permanent members of the proposed Security Council, advocating for the principles of collective security and self-determination and pushing for economic and social issues to be at the heart of the agenda. We did not win all those battles, and we are still fighting some of them.

  • Volume 41 Issue 4 - The current refugee crisis: What's new'
    • Abstract: Neumann, Klaus
      Many of the features of today's global refugee crisis, including its quantitative dimensions and some of the factors precipitating it, are not new. The media's and policy-makers' focus on the presumed novelty of forced mobility in the 21st century may make us overlook the fact that the response to such mobility has changed over time. In the global north, that response has also been far from uniform, as a brief survey of the New Zealand, Australian and German cases demonstrates. The problem of global mobility is not caused by new migrations but rather by the response to these migrations, which needs to be understood historically.

  • Volume 41 Issue 4 - Germany's relations with Russia: Willing fools or
           trusted intermediaries'
    • Abstract: McMillan, Stuart
      Europe's problems have been compounded by rising tensions between Russia and Europe and Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. These have been exacerbated by a number of developments, including Russian annexation of Crimea and intervention in Syria. Sanctions have been imposed on Russia by the West. For some years during the Cold War the then West Germany adopted policies towards the then Soviet Union that helped to maintain peace. That traditional role between Germany and Russia, now under severe challenges, will be critical in maintaining peace on the European and Euro-Asian continents in the decades ahead.
