“Europe’s Decline and Fall: The Struggle Against Global Irrelevance”, a new book from the Spanish think tank FRIDE (Fundación para las Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior), is a critique of how Europe is dealing with its diminishing international power. It addresses European responses to the financial crisis, the emerging multipolar world, new security challenges, questions of European identity, and human rights concerns around the world. It considers that if in a rush to deal with decline, European governments err in defensively abandoning many of the EU’s supposedly core values and the implications of this. In another paper entitled “The Third Wave of Development Players”, FRIDE considers the role of a new group of development donors – the CIVETS group (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa)  - in determining the scope and quality of development policy decisions at the G20, UN and Development Assistance Committee (DAC) levels.
