Developments in the Arab countries. First evaluation

International, Globalisation, Middle East, World

Since December 2010, the Arab countries have entered a new era:
revolutions, revolts, recomposition of the political field. Regimes, which seemed settled in their authoritarian certainties flicker and some fall. Others use particularly brutal and barbaric methods to maintain power.

In countries where dictators have fallen, new perspectives open, made ​​both of opportunities, potentials, risks and uncertainties. Society, culture, economics, politics: a new excitement raises with all the uncertainty and difficulties that such transition process include.

US foreign politics

International, Globalisation, Europe, Africa, America, Asia, Russia, Middle East, World

Beyond elections and subsequent changes of presidencies and styles, it is also possible to identify elements of continuity in the history of the external actions of the United States and of the current administration of President Barack Obama.

American foreign policy unfolds in all the regions of the world and has a significant impact on the conduct of international affairs. Better understand U.S. foreign policy contributes to better analyze and decode the main lines of the contemporary international scene.

Euro-Mediterranean questions

Europe, International, Globalisation, Europe, Africa

The Euro-Mediterranean region is at the junction of Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It engages multiple challenges in international relations: political and security, economic and trade, social and cultural dimensions. From the Balkans to the Israeli-Arab dimensions, from energy to ecological aspects, bringing these data side to side allows to better understand the importance for Europe of stability and peace in the Mediterranean region.

Brazil external politics

International, Globalisation, America, World

Brazil became a protagonist increasingly visible on the international scene, particularly under the leadership of President Lula during the first decade of the 2000s. Brazil is now recognized as a major economic and trading power. In continuation of activities initiated earlier, its current leaders, especially President Dilma Rousseff, act with firmness in the treatment of internal social and economic issues in order to continue to reduce inequalities. Therefore, Brazil appears as a power increasingly influential in international relations.

Middle-East questions

Europe, Middle East

The Middle East has been a central area of ​​international affairs for decades. From the Israeli-Palestinian issue to the oil supply, from developments in Lebanon to the situation in Iraq, from the revolutions in Arab countries to political, economic, social, demographic and cultural developements of the region, the Middle East is an environment crucial to take into consideration and analyzed to understand the contemporary geopolitical key issues.
