In his article, Prof. Dr. Thomas Risse draws parallels to 9/11 and the day the Berlin Wall came down and explains why this war could have a similar significance in history. For him, it is clear that Germany needs a change in foreign policy.

The Russian invasion as a contestation of the liberal script? - A comment by Prof. Dr. Thomas Risse

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, SCRIPT members and guest authors have been sharing their perspectives on the conflict in the series ' The Russian invasion as a contestation of the liberal script? '. In his latest contribution, Thomas Risse outlines what Putin's war means for the liberal international order, arguing that it has already proven more resilient than many critics had previously assumed. To those who see a return to 19th-century spheres of influence and great power politics, he counters that the defense of human rights and democracy is not a "nice to have" addition to Western foreign policy, but a hard-nosed security policy in the geopolitical and geo-economic sense.
