On Saturday 19 September, US Secretary of State John Kerry finally announced that Assad could not go immediately, if a negotiation process would require him to stay in the medium term. Most significantly, he spelled out what was unutterable even a couple of weeks ago in the foreign policy corridors: "let's do it with Iran and Russia". Are times finally becoming ripe for dumping the whole architecture of current US and EU policies towards Syria and resetting our stances? In this exclusive article for EPOS, Giuseppe Provenzano, an MA student at the School of Government at LUISS University and expert in MENA affairs and "Shia Crescent" issues, focuses on the question giving our readers an interesting point of view

Pakistan’s National Security Advisor (NSA) called off the meeting with his Indian counterpart scheduled for 23 August 2015 at New Delhi. The agreement stipulated that the NSAs would meet to discuss all issues related to terrorism: while India insisted that both the countries must abide by the agreement, Pakistan insisted on expanding the agenda of the talks. Pakistan contended that the talks should be without any conditions and the agenda should include Kashmir. India argued that the composite dialogue can be resumed in a peaceful atmosphere and Kashmir cannot be part of the NSA level talks. Why? In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Debidatta Aurobinda Mahapatra discusses the issue deeply, and gives EPOS readers an illuminating point of view on the question

Epos converses with Eleni-Vasiliki Bampaliouta

by Nicolamaria Coppola (EPOS)
EPOS Conversations

The economic crisis in Greece is polarizing the opinions of the European citizens, firstly, and of all the intellectuals and the authorized personnel, secondly, about the system of the bailout and the attitude of the European Union towards Greece and the Greek population. The catastrophic results of the austerity policy have gone beyond any expectation. In spite of the propaganda that the Greek problem is a problem and a failure of the Greeks, everybody understands that behind the scenes is going the drama of the problems, the contradictions and the perspectives of Europe as a community, and a union. EPOS has interviewed the Athens-based Greek journalist Eleni-Vasiliki Bampaliouta, expert in politics and economy: in this exclusive conversation, she gives our readers her point of view from the ground on the economic crisis, the Greek government and the approach of the so-called TROIKA towards her and her compatriots

In the last two months, Sunni extremists spread terror across the Middle East and Africa. On June 29, 2014, the Islamic State self-proclaimed its caliphate. After one year, in correspondence to the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the organization called its supporters to escalate violence. On June 26, the same day of IS attacks, and exactly 5 years after the 2010 Ramadan offensive against the African Union, Al Shabaab assaulted an AMISOM military base in Somalia. Last, but not least, Boko Haram disseminated panic in the Chadian capital. In the following exclusive article, EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the issue of Sunni terrorism, highlighting the causes and the effects of it from a political and social point of view

The Greek case is typical of dramatic changes in the conceptualization of economic dangers and societal consequences. Almost 6 years after the outbreak of the economic and financial crisis, the "saving" plans still suffer from faulty assumptions and half-hearted decisions with an undeclared albeit clear intention to create a firewall that only prevents the immediate crisis contagion without necessarily offering a sustainable solution. The greatest challenge of the Greek government right now is to ensure the basic social rights of the general population and to protect at the same time the democratic tradition of the country away from the dangers of polarization, populism, anti-democratic and anti-European extremist voices. But what the other European governments should do? The exclusive analysis and the point of view of Dr. Christos Tsironis, Ass. Prof. Contemporary Social Theory, Sector of Ethics and Sociology, Dep. of Theology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
