    Waking Up to a New Britain

    The vote to Leave was mainly a protest vote. It was the vote of people who hated “Brussels” and the European Union, but hated London and the international financial system just as much.

    The Road From 1996: Russia’s Failure of Democracy

    Russia, Orlando, and the Chance to Turn a Page

    The sympathy expressed by President Putin and the Russian media for the victims of the Orlando attack gives Russia the opportunity to discard its discredited homophobic policies and to attempt a similar offer of rapprochement to the one Putin extended after the September 11 attacks.

    Duma Elections: Crimea Effect Caps Protest Potential

    The annexation of Crimea in March 2014 fundamentally changed Russia’s political climate: support for Vladimir Putin’s regime rose and remains high, despite a certain cooldown in recent months.
