Keeping critical eye on French President’s calls and promises, she ZIMMER agues one can not enhance democracy on European scale, without respecting it at home.

ZIMMER denounces power-politics thinking, as rudiment of the past, putting forward new thinking of XXI century aligned with international law and democratic institutions, including #EU. ZIMMER warns about risks of military action outside the UN mandate, adventures, putting world at risk of an accidental clash between nuclear superpowers.
