REMEMBERING JACQUES DELORS AND THE DELORS COMMISSION

The Delors Commission was the administration of Jacques Delors, the eighth President of the European Commission. Delors presided over the European Commission for three terms (though the last one lasted for around a year). The first term lasted from 1985 to 1988, the second until 1992 and the final one until 1994, making Delors the longest serving president, and his Commission is also seen as the most successful at advancing European integration.

TRUMP’S RADICAL SECOND-TERM AGENDA

As he seeks a return to the Oval Office, former President Donald Trump and his allies have promised a sweeping transformation of the federal government that would wield the executive branch’s power in radical and unprecedented ways. The agenda they are crafting would put into practice Trump’s hardline views that he has publicly expressed during his latest campaign for president and will almost certainly face a series of legal and political challenges.

THE WORLD OVER THE NEXT DECADE

  1. Russia will collapse over the next decade: The Kremlin’s war against Ukraine will precipitate Russia into a failed state or break up internally by 2034 because of revolution, civil war, political disintegration, or some other reason.
  2. Russia will not engage in a direct fight with the United States and NATO because the conflict in Ukraine can be contained to that country and the war has exposed Russia as too weak to take the fight directly to NATO.

THREE SCENARIOS FOR THE FUTURE OF EUROPEAN SECURITY ORDER

In the broader global framework of uncertainty and change, it is likely that the struggle over the future European security order will continue until one or the other side is too exhausted to continue. One can envisage the following three basic scenarios after the war in Ukraine, with the two first ones based on the assumption that there will be no principled change in Russia’s vision of European security, and the third one – more idealistic but unfortunately less likely – predicated on a radical change inside Russia.
