    The Eurozone's Greek solution? More delays
    After six years of confrontation, cutbacks and economic collapse, there was a mounting level of concern that this summer would herald a new dawn of crisis in Greece. Early this morning, however, the Eurozone's finance ministers announced their proposed solution. Does it hold water?

    Time for West to change tack on fighting terrorism

    Nikkei Asian Review
    The bombings in Brussels serve as a reminder that while many in the West would prefer to focus on domestic affairs, their enemies will not grant them that luxury and are determined to bring the fight to them. The terrorist threat in Europe and the crisis in the Middle East suggest that the trans-Atlantic allies have got the balance wrong. America's hands-off approach to the war in Syria has helped enable Islamic State terrorism to strike the heart of Europe. It has also unwittingly added momentum to a human wave of refugees. It is time for a new, forward approach that leverages the considerable strengths of the West while shrinking the space for terrorists to operate and for populists to whip up public hysteria.

    US resettles its first climate refugees

    US authorities' efforts to resettle a few dozen households from an island in Louisiana highlight the challenges governments face in coping with climate refugees, even domestically. "As the number of Americans at risk from climate change increases, so will the need for a consistent and transparent standard for deciding which towns get protected, which get moved, and which are left to fend for themselves," said Christopher Flavelle in a column for Bloomberg View. Creating that standard will require the attention of Congress and, ultimately, voters, Flavelle says. The Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribal town of Isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana, is sinking into the Gulf of Mexico, and the US federal government is giving the state $48 million to resettle the people in a way that could serve as a model for other towns. Global warming presents governments with two main problems: to slow the pace of climate change and to move people out of harm's way. "The second part is harder," Flavelle said.

    Turkish tyranny

    Financial Times
    It might well be that the European Union is very close to sealing a deal with Turkey over holding (and taking) back refugees wanting to enter the EU. But the FT's David Gardner warns that the Turkish president Erdogan does not care at all about European values and hence dealing with him is dangerous. "Paralysed into tawdry realpolitik, [the EU] is surrendering soft power: the attraction of an open society based on shared and codified values of freedom." Erdogan violently shuts down critical media and openly says that he does not care about the rulings of his country's court of justice. The former hope that Turkey would become an open muslim society is no more and it is partly the EU's own fault, according to Gardner.

    Trading with Turkey as crisis looms

    Der Spiegel International
    Today EU and Turkish leaders are meeting for a crisis summit to discuss the refugee inflow into Europe. German chancellor Angela Merkel is not the only one hoping for Turkey to take a larger share of those fleeing from nearby countries. But this will cost the EU both money and political concessions. Der Spiegel has sent reporters to the Greek-Macedonian border to report on the unrest among refugees forced to stop there. It also explains why Merkel has "begun warning of the EU's disintegration "into small states" that will be unable to compete in a globalised world" and of her fear "appearing totally isolated in Europe".
