Annual Letter 2020 – We say thank you!

Dear Writers, Readers, Supporters,

A very challenging year slowly comes to an end, and we wanted to take the opportunity to reflect a bit on this past year.

2020 has for sure had its ups and downs – but there is always a silver lining, even in the most challenging moments.

For us at Quo Vademus, being able to go live with our website has been this silver lining. This got us one step closer to making our dream come true of founding our own think tank and creating a platform for the youth to give them back their voice.

We say thank you!

Overall, we can say that we were overwhelmed by the positive feedback and the support we received. Quo Vademus started as an idea of two young people who wanted to make a difference in this world. Never would we have dreamed of actually getting so much support on this journey and finding so many young, motivated and talented young writers.

Let’s talk numbers!

Since the official launch of the website in October 2020, we received more than 150 contribution requests, published more than 35 articles from 15 different authors (more are still under review) and developed a constant, albeit small, online readership. Our articles have been reaching about 20.000 people around the world.

The topics of our published articles range, amongst others, from human rights, international security, political theory, to the implications of Covid-19 and cover the Middle East, the EU and the European Neighbourhood, the Americas as well as Central Asia.

Stay tuned for more!

We are more than grateful for the support we received from our writers, readers and contributors. Quo Vademus would be nothing without you.

In the upcoming year, we are looking forward to starting new exciting projects – stay tuned and get ready to be involved!

As for now, we at Quo Vademus want to wish you a great start into the new year 2021, and we are looking forward to sharing more interesting articles, analyses and opinions as well as new projects with you in the next year.

Take care and stay healthy and safe,

Gabriela and Lion

Europe’s Shift to the Right

Two colossal wars in less than half a century engendered the concept of a unified Europe under one supranational institution – the European Union. Yet, European countries are now once again electing right-wing leaders. What does it mean for Europe's relations with the EU and the rest of the world?

Why no foreign boots will be on Ukraine’s ground

During the last weeks, the world has been closely watching what is happening at the Ukrainian-Russian border. Despite the fact that the Ukrainian border has been the focus of attention for some years, the current crisis is taking another level. This is due to the deployment of a great number of Russian troops to the border, raising concerns about the region’s future and making experts speculate about a Russian invasion. However, even though specialists and pundits are warning decision-makers of the risk of a major war involving great powers, there are some reasons to doubt that there will be a Russian invasion or a deployment of NATO’s forces in Ukrainian territory, let alone a major conflict.

Will Joe Biden succeed in steering NATO to the Indo-Pacific?

China's growing maritime and military assertiveness increasingly threatens American primacy and the stability of the rules-based democratic order in the Indo-Pacific region. The Chinese Communist Party aims to power-project its military capabilities while also advancing its economic and diplomatic relations by spending billions on hard infrastructure projects in the region through China's grand geopolitical project: the Belt and Road land and sea initiative.
