On the 3rd of July 2013, the Egyptian military, supported by a large part of the Egyptian population as well as the judiciary, political opposition, and prominent religious representatives, ended the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood after only one year in power. Supporters of the Muslims Brothers refused this decision and insisted they would remain in the streets to protest these measures. However, after 40 days, the Egyptian security forces intervened and ended these sit-ins in Cairo and Giza.

Thanks to the successful adoption of the UN Open Ended Working Group (OEWG)’s final report in March and the conclusion of the Group of Governmental Experts (GGE)’s final report at the end of May, scholars, experts, and diplomats are rightfully rejoicing. Multilateralism is alive and kicking, especially around sensitive issues such as cyber ones.
In recent years, the digital world has emerged as a new domain of human activity, bringing with it unprecedented opportunities and global connectivity. As the world continues to progress through this period of digital transformations — including closing a digital divide where nearly half of the world’s population has yet to connect to the Internet — societies everywhere are realizing the benefits of increased connectivity via information and communication technologies (ICTs).
Molto spesso quando si parla di Cina non si parla del Paese in termini effettivi, ma se ne considera una proiezione caratterizzata facilmente da tratti esagerati in senso positivo o in senso negativo. La Cina diventa così alternativamente un gigante dai piedi d’argilla pronto a liquefarsi alle prime piogge o un treno in corsa dalla marcia inarrestabile. Proprio tale dinamica si è riproposta in occasione del ritiro delle truppe statunitensi dall’Afghanistan.
Paese isolato e impenetrabile alle grandi Potenze, l’Afghanistan è oggi uno dei 44 land-locked States, Paesi senza sbocco al mare. Solo in parte questo può tuttavia spiegare il cronico deficit di dotazione infrastrutturale che il Paese conosce.
Qatar is carving out a leading role for itself within international diplomacy - particularly in light of recent events in Afghanistan - through its mediation-oriented foreign policy. This occurs after — and despite — three years of political and diplomatic crisis between the Quartet (Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates-UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt) and Qatar. Doha’ diplomacy appears better positioned — and influential — today than before the eruption of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) rift, occurred in 2017.
As the United States races to meet the evacuation deadline of 31st August, it is clear that the images of the messy exit will stay etched in our collective conscious for a long time, just as the iconic image of US marines being evacuated from Saigon by a helicopter from a rooftop in April 1975 have never been forgotten. Already questions are being raised about the ‘sudden’ US decision, US credibility, and the collapse of the Afghan army.
“La situazione è estremamente seria e imprevedibile” ha dichiarato il Segretario Generale della Nato, Jens Stoltenberg, dopo una riunione sull’Afghanistan. Si potrebbe dire lo stesso dell’Alleanza Atlantica dopo la caduta di Kabul. Il collasso afghano è innanzitutto una storia d’insuccesso americana.
At the upcoming 8th Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), the multiple dimensions of health cooperation between China and Africa (aid, trade, and high politics) will undoubtedly take centre stage. During the past year and a half, as the Covid-19 pandemic raged through the world, China repeatedly made headlines for its alleged role as a global public goods purveyor.
