The Russian president helped build his country’s aspirational middle class. It may ultimately be his undoing.
The Ukraine crisis has revealed both the strengths of German foreign policy—diplomatic skill and economic power—and its weakness—a lack of military muscle.
The Nusra Front, al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, is gaining in strength and popularity, and it could become an ally in the fight against the Islamic State.

Russia should give the green light to the establishment of an SCO Development Bank where China takes dominant positions in the authorized capital and management bodies. In exchange, Moscow could coordinate investment principles on terms that would be most favorable to itself and its partners.
ASEAN should not force itself to become a single community by a certain date but instead focus its resources and attention on strengthening capacity and effectiveness in immediately relevant roles.
Four years after Gaddafi’s downfall, Libya faces the prospect of a full-blown civil war. How much responsibility do Europeans have for restoring stability in the country?
