[2] Working Group co-signers of this statement calling for a reversal of the Siemens turbine sanctions waiver include: @McFaul, @JohnEdHerbst, @Nataliia_Shapo, @edwardfishman, @FukuyamaFrancis, @kath_stoner, @steven_pifer, @ben_moll, @MSnegovaya, Richard Morningstar & many more!

As #ItalianPolitics is almost entirely focused on the election of the new #PresidentOfTheRepublic (long thread on this coming soon)… a thread to make sense of #Italy’s stand on the #UkraineCrisis

Today, #RussianPresident Vladimir #Putin will attend a meeting promoted by the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce focused on "trade, economic and investment cooperation between #Russia and #Italy"

Such a meeting is indeed “extraordinary” as noted by @NonaMikhelidze on @formichenews: Putin usually delegates meetings like this to others. His presence suggests that, for him, this is crucial

This is EVP Margrethe @Vestager speech "Democratic values in a digitalised world" @HumboldtUni 25.10.21. It explains rationales, set up basis for what I think will be a successful #EuropeanDigitalLaw! A speech that will continue to resonate for us #Thread ec.europa.eu/commission/com…

#Greens call for a more active #German foreign policy & above all for a strengthening of the #EU. Franco-German cooperation 🇫🇷🇩🇪 referenced along mside a #transatlantic approach. Issue of systemic rivalry with authoritarians highlighted.
#Greens describe the #transatlantic partnership as pillar of 🇩🇪 foreign policy, with #climate as core element. Recognition that #US will be less focused on European #security & that @Europe will need to do more. Good to see specific mention of security of

(1/6) ++UPDATE++ President Biden's #EO on #American #SupplyChains is out: whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/…. The EO includes 100-day #supplychain reviews & sectoral #supplychain assessments to be compiled within 1 year
(2/6) The sectoral #supplychain assessments can be interpreted as a #WholeofNation approach to geo-economic risk assessment - and thus constitute a formidable methodological challenge ImageImage
(3/6) #Allies and partners play a role in the #EO but it seems that the details remain to be discussed Image

As a lot of discussions already started on what to expect from #Biden within the #transatlantic relationship, let me list few ideas I laid out for @WashInstitute about what it could specifically mean in the #MiddleEast :
(I’ll paste in this thread some excerpts of a longer paper on Europe-US cooperation in the #MiddleEast since the end of the Cold War, available here 👇)

Great to be @MiddleEastInst for an event on #EU-#MiddleEast relations with @AlexVatanka, Przemyslaw Osiewicz and @KianpourWorld. What do changes in EU personnel and the new @EU_Commission mean for EU-MENA relations?
