How to get India back on track
A playbook for how Indian policymakers can return the country to a path of high and sustained economic growth.
Egypt has presented an initiative to broker a deal between Hamas and Israel to end the current violence. President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi cannot afford to see it fail.
Neither sanctions against Russia nor military aid to Ukraine can resolve the current crisis. The best option for U.S. policymakers is to engage with Putin and his inner circle—if it’s not too late.
The Ukraine crisis is not only a test for the EU and Germany but also a significant opportunity for China to usher in a new relationship among large powers.
If the investigators’ verdict on the Malaysia Airlines plane crash does eventually fall against Russia, Vladimir Putin will survive politically, but will have to work hard to restore faith in him, and his good fortune.
Egypt is a party to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It probably has to be part of the solution. But it can’t play the same kind of brokering role that it played in the past.
India has a big stake in preventing the further deterioration of U.S.-Russian relations. If India’s silence on Ukraine until now has been misunderstood, it must now speak up.
An independent inquiry into the Malaysia Airlines plane crash over eastern Ukraine and an immediate ceasefire by all sides could be the first step in a process to reverse the trend toward mutual destruction within Ukraine and beyond.
Predicting how Hamas is likely to act and react requires probing what the organization can do, what it wants, and how it sees itself. From Hamas’s angle, the current fighting offers just as many opportunities as threats.
If military leaders lack control over their troops' role in U.N. missions, but can be held legally responsible for their troops’ actions, then troop contributions from richer states with better courts may be less forthcoming.
The BRICS bank is good news for developing countries. If done right, it could change the landscape for multilateral development financing.
When innocents die, standard military metrics for success or failure pale in comparison with the human costs depicted so graphically in the media.
An important obstacle to the escalation of tensions in the Asia-Pacific region is the position of third-party countries, including Russia, which is interested in developing relations with China and also its neighbors.
The fundamental dilemma of Moscow’s policy lies in whether it is worth cooperating to achieve a comprehensive agreement with Iran, which would primarily be a success for the United States, under conditions of confrontation with the West over Ukraine.
Though it is still too early to talk about the chances specific candidates have of replacing Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov, it is important to look closely at the current ruling elite and the president’s possible successors to see where the country might be heading.
Whether shadow banking really is a danger or merely evidence of a maturing financial system depends on its magnitude and risk profile.
Even if the gaps in diplomacy appear quite large, there’s no great alternative to a continuation of negotiations with Iran.
More than three years after the January 25 revolution toppled then Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, Egypt continues to struggle with an authoritarian media sector and constraints on freedom of expression.
The long discussed overland pipeline bringing hydrocarbons from Russia to India is gaining some traction with the NDA government.
From a Latin American perspective, the focus of the next decade of relations with China will be on how to create even deeper, but more balanced and sustainable, forms of trade, investment, and diplomatic ties.
After the 2014 EU parliamentary elections, the sovereign debt crisis touched European bureaucrats and gained potential to reshape the direction of European politics and EU-China trade relations.
