Noteworthy developments have recently materialised in the languishing process of European defence cooperation, catalysing high-level politics in Brussels and national capitals, mobilising the expert community, and providing a potential lease of life to the struggling Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP).

Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets set the scene for economic, environmental, and social progress over the next 15 years.
European countries are accepting migrants and integrating them into their societies. So my question is: Why not more Syrians? And, for that matter, why not more Iraqis, Afghans or Somalis? Is it because of racism? Is it because they are suspected of posing a risk of terrorism? Is it because they are considered not properly skilled or trained?

Last month, ISPI Energy Watch analysed opposite interests around Nord Stream 2 and the reasons why Nord Stream 2 could face hurdles. European laws were defined as the “main weapons” of those countries opposing the project.

Armenia’s decision (03.09.2013) to join the Russian sponsored Customs Union (CU) and its perspective evolution, the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), had the effect of a thunderclap in European politics. The decision left the European Union in disarray. In the framework of the Eastern Partnership programme (EaP), this year Brussels has been engaged in intense negotiations to foster closer relations with the former Soviet Republics of East Europe and the Caucasus.
Con ogni probabilità, nemmeno il 2013 sarà, per Barack Obama, l’anno dell’auspicato “change”. Piuttosto, il braccio di ferro con il Congresso a maggioranza repubblicana intorno al tema del tetto del dedito federale – che dal primo ottobre ha portato allo “shutdown” di una lunga lista di servizi e alla messa in aspettativa di quasi un milione di dipendenti pubblici – sembra rappresentare l’ennesimo momento di difficoltà di un presidente fino a oggi incapace di soddisfare le attese (forse eccessive) sollevate all’epoca della sua elezione.
In July 2012 the first democratic elections for a parliament, the General National Congress, took place. This was a milestone in the development of the new Libya. But now, one year later, how does the country look like? Unfortunately the situation developed exactly as predicted .
