Charles Kupchan Describes the Current State of NATO

Father Christiansen Challenges New Generation of Catholic Voices to Lead the Discussion on moral perspectives on War, Peace, and Nuclear Weapons

In this article published on the National Catholic Reporter, Father Drew Christiansen posited that in the current political climate, with increasing attention being paid to nuclear deterrence, “it’s time for the Catholic voice to rise to the pinnacle it held in the 1980s and new voices can lead the way.” With his reference to the 1980’s, Father Christiansen brings to mind “The Challenge of Peace: God’s Promise and Our Response,” a letter released by U.S. bishops in 1983 which “offered moral perspectives on war and peace, nuclear deterrence and the possession of nuclear weapons.”

Charles Kupchan on the “Magnetic Attraction” of the EU

In this article published on Foreign Policy, Professor Charles Kupchan provides an explanation for why “Brexit Is Europe’s Finest Hour.” According to Kupchan, “the general pattern is that Europe continues to exercise a magnetic attraction which pulls even extremist parties toward the center. Why? It’s markets. It’s a rule-based order. It’s the aggregation of political and geopolitical clout. It’s a sense of security. It’s open borders.” Thus, according to Kupchan, Brexit has served more as an indication of the strength of the EU than anything else.
