EFSAS comments on Europe's envisioned role in the Middle East and South Asia


The push for Europe to become more dominant, bold, and independent is in reaction to several major occurrences within the last couple of years which have shifted the political equilibrium. Donald Trump has become President of the United States; the rhetoric of United States’ and his administration since 2016 is aggressively isolationist, and he is trying to govern with an “America First” policy. Subsequently, the United States has withdrawn from the Iran Deal, the Paris Climate Accord, and President Trump has made veiled threats about cuts of funding to major establishments like NATO and the UN while Brexit also looms ahead, set to take place by March 2019.
