Because of its role as an important driver of both economic and productivity growth, development and maintenance of infrastructure network are usually a major concern to political agenda. Nevertheless, there is a widespread agreement that the current investment trend may not be sufficient to meet a constantly growing demand for infrastructures, driven by the rapid development among emerging markets. Estimates by Oxford Economics point to a structural gap that, from its 2016 level of USD 372 bln, will face an yearly average growth of 3.2% until 2040.
Architecture and urbanism are definitely taking the centre stage in Saudi Arabia’s effort to increase its international outreach and visibility, as exemplified by the Kingdom’s decision to participate, for the first time, to the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture.

How often do Africans choose their national leaders through elections? And how frequently does the opposition win? In which countries has the military found ways of gaining political office through coups d'état, today as in the past? Be they civilian or military, elected or not, how long do leaders remain in power on the continent? Who is the current record-holder for longevity in government in a region that has accustomed us to the “eternal” Gaddafi, Mobutu, or Mugabe?
Quanto spesso gli africani scelgono i loro leader nazionali attraverso elezioni? Magari anche con sorprendenti vittorie dell’opposizione? Oppure sono ancora i militari che continuano a imperversare e dettare la linea, oggi come in passato, attraverso colpi di stato? E, siano essi civili o militari, eletti oppure no, quanto a lungo restano al potere questi stessi leader? Chi detiene, attualmente, il primato di longevità al governo in una regione che ci ha abituati ai vari – inamovibili – Gheddafi, Mobutu o Mugabe?
The "Indo-Pacific" is a strategic construct that arose at a time of a potential transition in the Asian security order.
The Western Indian Ocean (the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, the Bab el-Mandeb, the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian/Persian Gulf) is the new Gulf powers’ battlefield. Saudi Arabia and Iran, as already in the Middle East, are vying for hegemony in this sub-region: the Gulf monarchies also compete for influence, especially after the 2017 Qatari crisis and Doha’s boycott by neighbours.
