English Summary

The Diplomaatia (Diplomacy) that you hold in your hand brings you the current political thinking of the world. We focus mainly on foreign and security policy but will add foreign economy and defence matters in our future issues.
The first Diplomaatia features the well-known US analyst Robert Kagan who contemplates the conflicts between America and Europe. Since the works of the world-famous Kagan have not yet been published in Estonian we feel a special obligation to share with you excerpts from his famous essay “Power and Weakness”. For that we used his article “The Power Divide” in the Prospect Magazine.
Charles Grant, Director of the Centre of European Reform, the London-based think tank, analyzes the prospects of the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union. He wrote the analysis exclusively for Diplomaatia. He is seconded by Jüri Luik, Ambassador of Estonia to the United States. The former minister of foreign affairs and of defence shares his personal views on how Estonia should proceed in the global village.
Tiiu Pohl, lecturer at the Estonian School of Diplomacy, discusses democracy, the principal export of the United States. It appears that only a fourth of the American attempts at democracy qualify as success stories. Kaido Jaanson, lecturer of political science at Tartu University, writes about Kurt Riezler, depicting the people who once dreamt about the European Union. Margus Laidre, PhD in history poses a question in his essay on whether diplomacy is a magic cure to heal the world or rather a politicical painkiller.
