Questa nuova edizione dell’annuario dello Iai e dell’Ispi, l’ottava, ha per oggetto le vicende politiche ed economiche del 2006. Anche l’ultimo anno, come i precedenti, è stato caratterizzato dalla corrente di instabilità gravitante sul Medio Oriente, con il prolungamento dell’impasse iracheno, la ripresa dell’insurrezione in Afghanistan, la crisi politica e diplomatica sul nucleare iraniano e l’interminabile conflitto israelo-palestinese.

The day of accession (01.05.2004) of Hungary to the European Union was much more a political hallmark of the process of integration into the European economic and political structures, which started more than ten years earlier than an economic cut-off point. This integration process was gradual and progressively extended to more and more areas of the economic and political activities of the country in the course of more than a decade.
The political decisions on the enlargement of the European Union were made a relatively long time ago. However, not everybody - either in Poland or in the EU - accepted this extremely important decision with proper understanding and satisfaction. Accordingly, further debate goes on in this area, and the aim of this debate is to point out fundamental advantages and threats resulting from Poland’s accession. [...] segue
Nearly three years have gone by after the enlargement of the EU to 10 new member states. It is now possible to dismiss the fears on the negative effects of this enlargement that circulated in Europe (and not only) before 2004. What is more relevant to assess now is how far the actual economic integration between the EU-15 and the new member states has arrived.

Slovakia along with other nine countries enlarged on 1 May 2004 the European Union. Two years that have elapsed since its accession enable to assess direct impacts of the EU membership on the Slovak economy or on its individual spheres. Accession to the EU was related to numerous changes that in larger or smaller extent have actually concerned every sphere of Slovak economy [...] segue https://www.ispionline.it/it/documents/wp_15_2007.pdf
The EU’s commitment in the field of non-proliferation runs deep and has made significant contributions to the peace and stability Europe has enjoyed since the end of the Second World War. The most advanced instruments for European political cooperation have been used in this delicate sector.
Remarkable economic growth, vast energy resources, the originality of the Bolivarian revolution and the President’s eccentric style have all contributed to make Venezuela a strategically important country and a widely debated case study.
Following his landslide victory in the elections on December 3, 2006, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez made a few announcements that seem to indicate his wish to accelerate and radicalise his country’s path towards socialism.
Turkey completed the 1990s with the slogan “the 21st Century Will Be the Turkish Century”. It made progress in many areas, not least of all coming to terms with globalisation.
On 15th December 2006, the EU summit took the decision to suspend eight of the 35 chapters that form the agenda for Turkey’s accession negotiations. While the move was finely judged, in that it avoided the long feared “train crash” in ties, it was a public demonstration of the choppiness of the bilateral relationship. As such, the decision soured what [...] segue https://www.ispionline.it/it/documents/wp_11_2007.pdf
