The second amendment of the U.S Constitution was created in order to allow citizens to protect themselves, their family and their nation but, after the recent slaughter in Orlando, and considering the hundreds of deaths that firearms cause in the USA every year, wouldn't it be safer for America to defend itself from second amendment consequences? In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Valeria Sforzini, EPOS new editor and contributor, discusses the issue of gun control in the United States, exploring the different interpretations and points of view on the second amendement of the federal Constitution in the aftermath of the tragic terrorist attack in Orlando and as one of the most debated topic of the Presidential election campaign

In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Idrees Mohammed argues that the struggle for Syria is largely related to the pipeline politics and gas geopolitics. The United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar have supported the removal of Assad; however, Russia, Iran, and Iraq have supported Assad to remain in power. Both of those who are for and against the removal of Assad have opposite interests that are related to pipelines and gas market. The former group looks for a friendly post-Assad regime that will facilitate their objective; the latter group is just entirely against this scenario. Idrees Mohammed is an expert in International Relations and Kurdish affairs. His MA thesis was on Turkey's policy towards Kurdistan Region. He is a PhD candidate at University of Erfurt, Germany. He was a former lecturer in International Relations at University of Duhok, Kurdistan Region

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Syria's 5-years war has killed more than 250,000 people, with half of the population estimated to have fled its hometown. Refugees have been flowing across the neighbouring countries' boundaries, and those dangerous crossings are the subject of "Border", an Italian movie about Syria's Civil War which was diplayed at the 2016 Italian Film Festival in Scotland. "Border" has given voice and visibility to a tragedy which is still ongoing but always forgotten, and this is the strong point and the added value of this Italian film directed by Alessio Cremonini

Men and women are potential victims of sexual violence in the same way. Male rape is not worth less than female rape, and should not be silenced, nor as a tangible phenomenon nor as possible evidence. Sexual violence against men in conflict situations is an ordinary phenomenon: male rape can be seen as an instrument of war to destroy men who should be the guardians of society, and to erode the sanctity attached to their masculinity

The hopes of revival of India-Pakistan peace talks received a set back after the Pathankot incident in the first week of January 2016. The Pathankot incident belied the hopes, and in turn weakened the constituency of peace and strengthened the constituency of spoilers. Pathankot happened after one week of Indian Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Lahore.  India has demanded that unless Pakistan takes action against the culprits of the attack, it would not engage in dialogue. Pakistan’s position has been it would take action on the basis of evidence. What will it happen? What future for India-Pakistan peace process? Debidatta Aurobinda Mahapatra, EPOS analyst from India and expert in conflict management in South Asia, has given his answer to these and other questions

After the recent terrorist attacks occurred last Christmas, the jihadist threat in the Philippines is probably higher than ever. The Islamic State seems to expand its influence throughout the Filipino jihadist galaxy. However, it is more likely that the allegiance to the Islamic State pledged by many radical groups is technically an opportunistic path rather than an act of faith. In the following exclusive article Federico Solfrini, an MA student in Economics and Institutions in Islamic Countries at LUISS Guido Carli University, and Andrea Ursi, a researcher on jihadism and on the jihadist groups in the Middle East, Europe and Southeast Asia, analyse the origin, the raise and the fragmentation, the so-called feudalism, of the jihadist radicalism in the Philippines, giving EPOS' readers a deep and complete view of the issue
