European ‘Pivot’ earlier and better than the US version?

Nicola Casarini published this short analysis of ‘The European ‘pivot’ ” (link  here) for the EU Institute for Security Studies.

It is mostly familiar stuff to regular readers of this blog and similar news. Casarini does however suggest the European pivot is distinguished by these factors:  

– it started before the US pivot 

– it is a blend of EU and individual European nations’ efforts

– it gets broader support in Asia because (in contrast with the US pivot) it’s not aimed at keeping China in check, so doesn’t risk causing a regional polarization
