The war in Syria is not to be explained only by the political infighting in the country between the Alawites and the Sunni majority, but also by an important energy deal between Russia and Iran. Both the countries intend to steer the energy market in the Middle East and the Gulf region, substantially influencing the price of gas and crude oil on the world markets against other potential competitors in the sector. On the other hand, Turkey's strategy is to become an energy hub with Russia’s help too, also on the aftermath of its difficult relations with the US and the EU after the failed  military coup that has drifted the West and Turkey further apart. In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Gregorio Baggiani analyses the situation pointing out all the geopolitical implications and the economical strategies

Bangladesh is constitutionally a secular State but, since the Sixties, the secularist nature of the country has been put in danger by the strong impulses given by the extremist Islamic groups. Although the government should protect the believers of any religion and defend those who express their position against Islam, in the last years too many secularist bloggers and intellectuals that spread messages of religious openness and of gender equality have been killed. A chain of violence and terror is threatening pacific coexistence in Bangladesh and the survival of religious minorities. EPOS’ analyst Valeria Sforzini investigates and discusses the sensitive issues of the “sectarian terror” in Bangladesh in the following article

Rush! This is what the Kosovans, both Albanian and Serbian, are asking the European Union. As most of the Balkan countries have already obtained concession from the EU, especially regarding the issue of Visa, Kosova is currently claiming to move freerly in the European Union, deleting the EU Visa Policy as already happened for Serbia. After "Brexit", the strongest supporters of the European Union are in the Balkans, and mainly in Kosovo. But all the problems of democracy, economy, law, justice, human rights, etc. should be solved after the association. In the following exclusive interviews for EPOS, the words of the Kosovan Minister of EU integration, Bekim Çollaku, and of Father Andrej, Vice-Dean of the Orthodox seminary in Prizren

Recently, more than thirty people were killed in Kashmir in exchange of turmoils between Indian security forces and Kashmiri people. Unless it is contained, violence may escalate and plunge the whole region into deadly cycle of attacks with loss of civilian life and consequent economic destruction. India and Pakistan must revive the peace process. The more they procrastinate, the more the stalemate would be hardened. The more they dry the channels of bilateral communication, the more it will be opportune for the spoilers to exploit the volatile situation. EPOS analyst Debidatta Aurobinda Mahapatra analyses the situation from the ground, discussing the ongoing violence in Kahsmir and the challenges that all the actors are going to face, and he gives EPOS' readers an exclusive point of view on the issue

Bangladesh has a long history of fringe extremist groups. Some of those are a legacy of the war in Afghanistan, in which some Bangladeshis fought; others are byproducts of the Wahhabi influence that Bangladeshi workers in the Persian Gulf brought back when they returned home; still others are ISIS-addicted. The Islamic State is recruiting supporters among that part of the population dissatisfied with the government's handling, and perhaps the attackers in Dhaka were some of them. Whatever its exact nature, however, according to the analysts it seems that terrorism is largely the result of the government’s repression against mainstream dissent
