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

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

In the Arab world armies are a particular kind of actors: they have been an integral institution within the authoritarian regimes for the last 40 years but have acted as midwiges and active participants in the revolts in Tunisia and Egypt, thereby easing the end of both regimes.  It is possible to classify three models of post-regimes breakdown army postures (Tunisia, Egypt and Libya) but we can consider a fourth model, too, represented by the Yemeni military
