Profile of the potential terrorist

Monday, 28 August 2017 20:37
by Emanuela C. Del Re (EPOS)

EPOS Insights

How can terrorists be identified before they perpetrate destructive attacks? From the United States to the European Union, the question is being asked; how the techniques for the filing and analysis of  preventive  and anti-terrorist strategy information can be streamlined. In the meantime, the terrorist escapes control. The panorama is, in fact, so vast and many-sided that it is difficult to understand and know it in its complexity. However, to intervene with the “preventive” aim, as the American anti-terrorist philosophy maintains, raises many questions in Europe. There is a need to reflect upon the errors already committed, improve the methodologies of the utilization of the data and, above all, know better the potential terrorist, before he actually becomes one, when he is still “our” very normal next-door neighbour

Russia-US Relations in the Trump Era

EPOS Insights

With the Trump presidency, relations between Russia and the US have become a great unknown for Europe and the world, but a huge opportunity too. Europe and the world await the results of the Trump-Putin meeting that is supposed to take place in the months to come. There are plenty of challenges on the table, and perhaps Trump’s hyper-realist attitude will contribute to making some sort of settlement between the United States and Russia possible, resulting in a substantial improvement in relations between the two countries and of international relations in Europe and in the world as a whole. In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Gregorio Baggiani points out and discusses the actual possibilities of finding a difficult compromise between the parties and the obstacles that could come in the way of a possible agreement. The article focuses on the various regional scenarios that characterize bilateral relations between the US and Russia.

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

To some accounts, it seems that the USA government is paving the way for operations aimed to kill or capture militants involved in the deadly attack against the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, that resulted in the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans citizens.This event is now seen under a twofold perspective: the US role in the transition phase of newly elected governments and what kind of punishment to the perpetrators. As for the latter, according to some sources, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) is gathering intelligence instrumental to prepare the list of targets, prerequisite to government green light to the relevant operation. The purpose of this essay is to focus on the possible use of drones in the Libyan desert
