REAPPRAISING GLOBAL SECURITY 10 key recommendations

Launch of the Security Jam report

The Security Jam report ‘Reappraising global security: 10 key recommendations’ was officially presented today, Wednesday 4 March, to General Philip Breedlove, NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe and Ambassador Alain Le Roy, Secretary General of the European External Action Service in Brussels.

Time was when foreign policy and security doctrines were the preserve of a few. That was before the information revolution.

Imagine a conversation in which several thousand minds grapple with the same set of problems within the space of a few days. That’s what the 2014 Security Jam achieved, bringing together almost 2,300 participants from 129 countries, delivering 10 concrete recommendations on how Jens Stoltenberg and Federica Mogherini might begin their respective mandates.

Il non voto l’ho spesso considerato come un problema per la democrazia, in quanto si decide di non dare un contributo e lasciando che siano altri a formare le maggioranze che poi governeranno anche la vita di chi non vota.

Un’analisi usuale e non so quanto approfondita, porta a considerare chi non vota come qualunquisti, non acculturati, menefreghisti, interessati solo al proprio bene spicciolo.

The Mesopotamian basin, namely Iraq and Syria, is descending into an increasingly complex and chaotic period. Only by understanding how it has come to this point can we try to find more viable policy options. Ascribing the roots of the problem solely to the organisation known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will likely fail to produce correct solutions.

 

 

 

The government deadlock in Iraq, Iraq’s outgoing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s alienating policies, sectarian conflict, lack of vision by local religious and political actors, the shift from de-Ba’athification to de-Sunnification, involvement of regional power proxies, all indicate that an ISIS- type organization would have emerged in any case.
