Reads of the Summer 2019

The reading recommendations for this summer comprise five short articles and four books that focus on two topics. The first topic is European internal reforms, which are necessary and feasible after the elections that demonstrated a rising interest in European topics and in which the pro-European and pro-reform parties of the middle won, while populist parties made fewer inroads than expected. The second topic is how Europe can increase its global leverage through cooperation with Africa and India, limiting or complementing the quest for leadership of China and/or the unpredictability of the Trump-led USA.
