Foreign Policy Flashpoints

“Together we stand.” Secessionist impulses are gaining momentum around the United States. But breaking up would jeopardize the United States’ most important geopolitical asset, FP’s Stephen M. Walt writes.


On life support. Leaders from the United States, Mexico, and Canada are convening for the first time since 2016 at the North American trilateral summit. They must revive the project of a united continent, FP’s Edward Alden writes.


Growing footprint. The Biden administration has quietly deployed more U.S. troops to Taiwan over the past few months, in a move that could signify its growing concern over the island’s fate, FP’s Jack Detsch reports.


Nuclear bet. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised that India would reach net-zero emissions by 2070 at COP26. Only turning to nuclear power will allow him to keep his word, Anik Joshi writes.


Energy squeeze. Ukraine’s energy sector has long been vulnerable to Russian advances. Working with the West can help Kyiv reach greater energy security—and a stronger geopolitical position, Eugene Chausovsky writes.
