Notizie dai fronti nucleari: apparentemente buone da quello coreano, pessime dall’Iran. In Estremo Oriente si avvicina il vertice di Singapore fra Donald Trump e Kim Jong Un. Atmosfera quasi idilliaca: il capitalista americano sarebbe anche pronto a pagare il conto dell’albergo al confucio-comunista della Corea del Nord (Singapore è la città-stato più cara del mondo). Il summit probabilmente non porterà a nulla di concreto ma se i neo-con dell’amministrazione di Washington non faranno altre stupide dichiarazioni, il processo diplomatico è in cammino.
The relationship between conflict and terrorism and ivory trafficking is often poorly understood. This article examines some of the realties underpinning this relationship, and calls for greater cross-sector cooperation in responses to ivory trafficking.
On June 8 and 9, the leaders of the G7 countries have met in Canada for their 44th annual summit. For decades, the summit has offered an opportunity for representatives of democratic, economically-advanced countries to reaffirm their commitment to a free and liberal world.
The upcoming meeting between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping is the main political event of the year in terms of Russian-Chinese relations. On the agenda there is the implementation of the agreement to reach a $200 bln bilateral trade level by 2020, the task that was assigned by the leaders of two countries. The key precondition for the success of this agreement is shifting to a new model of cooperation, with more connected production chains and diverse investment ties.
In 2018 global governance will be importantly shaped by the summits of the two global institutions centrally responsible for this task. The first is that of the Group of Seven (G7) major economically advanced democracies, to be hosted by Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau in Charlevoix, Canada, on June 8-9. The second is that of the Group of Twenty (G20) systemically significant countries, to be hosted by Argentinian president Mauricio Macri in Buenos Aires on November 30 and December 1.
As the Trump Administration prepares for the G7 meeting in Canada, the bulk of commentary in the press is focusing on how isolated the United States has become. The aluminium and steel tariffs, the renegotiation of the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with respect to Iran, and the repudiation of the Paris Accords all combine to create tension between the Trump Administration and its G7 partners.
L’agenda internazionale dei prossimi mesi è già fitta di impegni e imporrà al nuovo Governo di assumere, in tempi brevi, posizioni chiare su temi cruciali per l’interesse nazionale: dal ruolo in Europa a quello nella Nato, dalle migrazioni ai rapporti con la Russia, dalle missioni militari all’estero al commercio internazionale. Quali sono dunque i principali appuntamenti internazionali che attendono il nuovo Governo? Quali gli interessi nazionali in gioco? E con quali alleati poterli difendere al meglio?
Il commento di Paolo Magri:
For several years now, there has been a volcano of national aspirations waiting to breakdown the putrefying system of global governance and erupt out of control. The quest for peace through the creation of the United Nations (UN) is well past its use-by date. Religious violence has replaced nationalistic wars, the battlefield has shifted to shopping malls, streets and borders from strategic assets, citizens have substituted soldiers in death counts, economic violence has superseded physical violence.
