If #EU security policy is going through a watershed moment, then this should show in our language. Let’s spell it out: We don’t need ‘strategic autonomy’. What EU needs now is strategic responsibility. THREAD 1/7
‘Strategic autonomy’ has always been toxic in most places in #CentralEurope because it smacks of decoupling from the #US. Defenders of SA can claim ‘til they’re blue in the face that decoupling is happening anyway & that autonomy refers also to tech, energy & supply chains. 2/7
The term is tainted, especially in light of #Russia aggression. #US is actually re-pivoting to #EU, & EU is shouldering much more of the defence burden. Any future US administration would have a hard time returning to #Trump 2017. 3/7

#Germany - a) in terms of the #security aspect, this is a result of Western #hegemony managed by the US, in case b) of #energy supply, this is a question of geopolitical point of view, how to consider it: if you see 30 years provocations as a necessary part of it, ....

... and you provoke the split between #CentralEurope and #Russia (#USA/#NATO), whatever the cost, you are right, but with what we are currently experiencing as a result (#Ukraine), and if you are c) fixated on #exports and #neoliberalism ... (2/4)
... and do not intend to pay decent wages, you are destroying your internal (also the #EU's) purchasing power and giving #China the opportunity to put pressure on you, all the more so, (3/4)

A recent @OefzCfa conference on the #EU's #EastWestDivide led me to dig a little deeper on the distribution of #EUTopJob and #EUagencies. Here are some simple graphs and take-aways.
👉Overall conclusion, there is a clear lack of representation of #EasternEurope and #CentralEurope ImageImageImage
Between 2009 and 2019, #Poland is the only non-Western European country to have held an #EUTopJob. The incoming team is composed exclusively of Western/Southern Europeans. #vonderleyen (years indicated are years of nomination) #EastWestDivide Image
#EUagencies are present in almost all Member States, with the exception of 3 Central and Eastern European ones (+UK because of #Brexit). Yet, Western and Southern European countries — esp. #France, #Spain, #Germany and #Netherlands — clearly get the lion's share. #EastWestDivide Image
