For the past four years, European Geostrategy has aimed to take part in the debate about the character, ambition and scope of European foreign, security and military issues from a geostrategic perspective. Over 1,080 Facebook likers and 1,300 Twitter followers later, European Geostrategy has become an important outlet for geostrategic thinking, providing our readers with a regular flow of almost 140 posts over this period pertaining to these policies from a range of viewpoints. These have come in the form of short articles, book reviews, interviews and ‘Long Posts’. We have had the great pleasure of interviewing some leading European and transatlantic minds, from Julian Lindley-French to Robert Cooper. Most notably, in his last interview before passing away, Kenneth Waltz spoke to European Geostrategy.
Many think-tanks, media outlets and universities have mentioned or directly quoted from our posts. We need only mention Carnegie Europe, the European Council on Foreign Relations, European Voice, FRIDE, Institute for International and European Affairs, the London School of Economics, Elcano Royal Institute and the Royal United Services Institute among the many organisations that have found European Geostrategy a source of useful insight.
Equally, over the past couple of years, European Geostrategy’s original co-founders – James Rogers and Luis Simón – have recruited a number of Senior Editors: Sven Biscop, Daniel Fiott and Alexander Mattelaer. Due to European Geostrategy’s continuing success, we have decided to migrate to a dedicated website for the continuation of our work. We would like to thank EggCup Web Design for developing our new platform, as well as Ideas on Europe and the University Association of Contemporary European Studies for hosting European Geostrategy up until now.
You, our followers, will continue to be treated to a steady stream of articles, book reviews, interviews and ‘Long Posts’. Our new website will improve your experience by offering greater interactivity and visual design. Furthermore, the Senior Editors will be joined by a host of high-level thinkers and commentators, who will act as Associate Editors, thus providing further articles and refinement. We hope you have enjoyed our work so far, and we look forward to welcoming you to a new and improved version of European Geostrategy!
