Changing geopolitical conditions in the Middle East: against a background of Iran election and Trump`s visit

Changing geopolitical conditions in the Middle East: against a background of Iran election and Trump`s visit
25 May 2017

Experts are analyzing the outcome of the presidential election in Iran, with main emphasis made on possible geopolitical repercussions of Hassan Rouhani`s re-election. Some of them say Rouhani`s assuming the second term means Iran will take a softer stand. A reformist, Rouhani wants Iran to be more open to the world. Other experts believe that Tehran will strengthen global economic competition. They see Iran as a tough opponent for the West. Therefore, risks will remain in relations with Iran. Others look at the situation through a prism of Iran`s internal political realities. Reforms in Iran may change the situation, allowing the country to play a more active role on the international scene, which will contribute to stability. These issues seem to be thought-provoking against a background of Donald Trump`s Middle East tour. In this context, it would be interesting to analyze how the geopolitical situation may change in the region.

Macron's Victory: Against the Backdrop of Geopolitical and Domestic Discord

Macron's Victory: Against the Backdrop of Geopolitical and Domestic Discord
22 May 2017

As Emanuel Macron, candidate of the centrist "En Marche" movement that he himself founded, became the next French President, new questions have emerged within the expert community around the world. Some regard him as the European Union's savior, while others argue that the political environment in the country is still far from clear. There is also an attempt to identify a connection between the French elections and the global geopolitics, including the political processes in the U.S. and Great Britain. Donald Trump's victory, the Brexit and Macron's election are seen as three developments that are somehow associated with one another. According to some analysts, it is about the change of substance in the Western politics in the post World War II era. They contend that the policy of double standards is an underlying factor for the political and geopolitical ambiguities. Nevertheless, the general understanding is that the outcome of the French elections will have a profound impact on global geopolitics.

Geopolitics of the South Caucasus: Warmonger Armenia

Geopolitics of the South Caucasus: Warmonger Armenia
14 April 2017

As the superpowers spar for influence on the global level, it exacerbates the risk factor in different regions. Development scenarios around the processes in the South Caucasus are subject of particular interest. European think-tanks produce projections of their own on this issue but those forecasts differ with respect to certain aspects. There are some fascinating theses, most importantly on Russia and the issue of the conflicts. Armenian analysts choose to address the issue of a war. According to them, only a war can make Armenia independent – the one between the U.S. and Russia. The future of the South Caucasus is a matter of grave concern in light of such an utterly perilous prospect. Would the world fall for another Armenian provocation?

New Height of Crisis in the Middle East: Big Powers are Gearing Up

New Height of Crisis in the Middle East: Big Powers are Gearing Up
06 April 2017

Military clashes in Syria and Iraq have become more intensive lately with one of the key features being the air bombardments against the civilians. Such attacks had claimed hundreds of lives and caused displacement of thousands more. The situation in Mosul is dramatic to the extent that the government forces have halted the operations. Elsewhere in Syria, the geopolitical tensions around Manbij and Afrin have spiraled. Washington and Moscow have started to back PYD there openly. If Americans are eyeing Raqqa, Russians are making sure that their people are on the ground in Afrin to secure their interests. Ankara's response was an anticipated one as it said the Operation Euphrates Shield would continue. Thus, the outlines of an apparent new triangle of tensions – standoff between US, Russia and Turkey – is starting to emerge.
