For those of you who are just returning from holidays, here is an update of what has been going on at ECFR during August:
The main story in recent days has of course been the dramatic events in Libya. This morning we posted this podcast with Richard Gowan and Hans Kundnani, looking at who should now take the lead in helping ensure a peaceful post-Gaddafi future for the country, and what role Germany might play.
Also on Libya:
There will be plenty more on Libya in the coming days and weeks.
Closer to home, the story of the summer has undoubtedly been the euro crisis – an issue which certainly hasn’t taken an August break. In an op-ed published by the Financial Times last week, ECFR’s director Mark Leonard warned that “markets are not just betting against the euro but testing the European project itself,” and argued that only a reinvention of Europe will break its cycle of decline.
His piece forms part of our Reinvention of Europe project, which this month has also featured contributions from Council members, policy fellows and staff:
Elsewhere at ECFR:
One last piece of news is that ECFR's London office is recruiting an intern to join the China programme. See here for details.
