EPOS Insights

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

EPOS Insights

Yemen is very susceptible to foreign interventions within domestic politics, as the country displays a high number of destabilizing forces combined with a high regional geo-strategic value. The Houthi offensive and the resulting Saudi reaction reinforced the national Sunni-Shia cleavage, pressuring local actors to slowly realign along religious identities. In the following exclusive article - the first part of a deep analysis of the situation in Yemen - EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the local actors involved in the insurgency, and outlines the interests of different opposition groups, investigating how their positions evolved and how the Shia offensive impacted on the local society
