E-Paper European Security:
How Policy-Relevant is History?
Russia’s war against Ukraine marks a “Zeitenwende” for Western security order. Can historical thinking help to analyze and solve current problems more clearly?
The e-paper “European Security: How Policy-Relevant is History?” demonstrates how and where history can help us to better respond to the uncertainties of the present and how future political action can be shaped in a more historically informed way.
Five authors from Germany, France, Poland, Russia, and the United States explain what role different historical experiences play in dealing with current challenges in European security policy. How can historical thinking contribute to a better understanding and handling of the present?
