Egypt’s situation in terms of sustainability is far from excellent. The ecological footprint per capita is already 4.5 times higher than the country's biocapacity. Furthermore, Egypt is highly vulnerable to the threat of climate change on multiple fronts, including rising sea levels, heat waves, and water scarcity. Increasing the pace of decarbonization and energy diversification with low-carbon resources is an urgent priority for the country to achieve a more sustainable future.

Scarcely two years after protesters redefined the political landscape in Kyrgyzstan, the country’s giant northern neighbour – Kazakhstan – has witnessed a series of uprisings that started in the Western city of Zhanaozen and soon spread to other Southern cities and, most importantly, the former capital of Almaty.
The severe power outages that plagued China since September 2021 have highlighted the clash between efforts to limit environmental degradation and short-term economic realities.

The power rationing has weighed on the country’s economic growth and impacted global supply chains.

Abstract. For some years, various countries have been engaged in a race for the militarization of 'outer space' and the creation of new space forces. This race is having consequences on technology, war strategy, and international relations.
Research questions. What are the programs and resources allocated to the new Space Forces? What new technologies will future wars be fought with? What new risks are being created? Is it possible to slow down the new space race and transform this effort into economic and social opportunities?

Sono trascorsi vent’anni dagli attacchi al World Trade Center del 2001. Si è trattato di un momento simbolico per la galassia jihadista, con ampie ripercussioni a livello mondiale.
