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.
Israel and Hamas have found themselves sucked into a conflict that neither side really wanted and that outside powers seem reluctant or unable to stop.
The once warm relationship between Turkey’s AKP and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has measurably cooled as geopolitical realities have shifted.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has to work through parties who are in direct touch with Hamas, such as the Palestinian Authority and maybe the Qatari government, to work out a ceasefire.
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.
There was a fundamental mismatch of expectations between the United States and Iran over what a comprehensive deal would entail when the interim nuclear deal was reached in November 2013.
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.
With the international investigation of the Malaysian plane crash yet to begin in earnest, the West will base its understanding on evidence supplied mainly by the United States and Russia will see Western actions as punishment not for shooting down the plane, but rather for Moscow’s position on Ukraine.
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.
Though China is growing increasingly concerned about Venezuela’s economic, social, and political stability, it continues to provide finance and investment in an effort to strengthen relations.
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.
There is widespread agreement that the subsidy system in Egypt is no longer sustainable in its current form. But experts disagree on the timing of the subsidy cuts and its subsequent economic and social costs.
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.
