A bonfire of regulations after "Brexit"? Don't bet on it.

My column this week. There are five existing models for the U.K.'s relationship with the EU should it leave: Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, Canada, the U.S. None looks great.

British proponents of leaving have no perfect example to point to for the U.K.’s future relationship with a bloc vital to its economy

Is 2015 the year, European foreign policy got realpolitik? My column this week.
With migration tearing at the EU’s cohesion, politicians have started to see foreign policy as a way to secure Europe’s strategic interests, shifting from the EU’s traditional focus on democracy and human rights.

"In the nearly six-year history of the debt crisis, never before has the facade of public optimism among so many leading actors crumbled like it has over the latest deal." My column on Greece this week.

My take this week on the differences between Islamic State and Al Qaeda.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/terror-attacks-in-europe-aim-to-inspire-new-recruits-1458863217
Islamic State unleashes its violence in the West because it needs to draw more foreigner fighters to its cause

Trouble is that many in the European Union don’t want even Switzerland to have a Swiss-style relationship with the bloc.

My final column for The Wall Street Journal tabloid print edition in Europe. Next week, the WSJ reemerges in Europe as a broadsheet.
Europe’s common currency and the Schengen passport-free zone are the European Union’s most ambitious undertakings. Not coincidentally, they are also the two European projects that have most called into question the future of the bloc.
