Kamaran Mohammad, expert in geopolitics, security issues and international relations, is an Assistant Lecturer of Political Science at College of Law and Politics, Salahaadin University, in Erbil. In the following exclusive article for EPOS WorldView, he discusses the future of Mosul, analysing the position of all the armed groups involved in the operation to retake the city after more than two years of Islamic State occupation. Mr. Mohammad tries to answer two questions: how can these forces participate in rebuilding and governing Mosul? Can they be reintegrated into formal army and state institutions? Rebuilding Mosul and all other liberated areas requires a national and comprehensive strategy but, at the moment, there is no vision and common understanding of the priorities, Mr. Mohammad states

Bangladesh has a long history of fringe extremist groups. Some of those are a legacy of the war in Afghanistan, in which some Bangladeshis fought; others are byproducts of the Wahhabi influence that Bangladeshi workers in the Persian Gulf brought back when they returned home; still others are ISIS-addicted. The Islamic State is recruiting supporters among that part of the population dissatisfied with the government's handling, and perhaps the attackers in Dhaka were some of them. Whatever its exact nature, however, according to the analysts it seems that terrorism is largely the result of the government’s repression against mainstream dissent

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 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

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

The recent exchange of prisoners for video showing evidence of their healthy conditions, may be interpreted as an alternative option to pave the way to unstrained relations in deeply rooted crisis situations of the Middle East. Credible third party mediators, not limited to above area, seem to be well suited for conducting prisoners swap talks, particularly when both counterparts are keen to wrap up a deal, but do not have the capacity as a result of institutional limitations.
