Prospects for the 2021 NATO leaders' meeting

Εν συντομία 04-06-2021

An in-person NATO summit of heads of state or government is scheduled to take place in Brussels on 14 June 2021. Highly anticipated, as part of United States President Joe Biden's first overseas visit, the summit is expected to outline NATO's strategic direction in the decade ahead. The NATO 2030 agenda will be debated, and forward-looking discussions about long-term threats and challenges to Euro-Atlantic security and defence are expected.

Developments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) pose a growing challenge for the European Union. Many countries in the region face war, political turmoil and popular anger, due to the impact of poverty in generating instability, migration and, in some cases, terrorism. The EU wants to contribute to stability in MENA through instruments such as the European Neighbourhood Policy and the Union for the Mediterranean, but there are calls for the EU to play an even more active role in the region ...

Νότια Ασία

Θεματολογικά δελτία της ΕΕ 01-06-2017

Η Ασία αποτελεί τη μεγαλύτερη και πολυπληθέστερη ήπειρο και έχει μεγάλη γεωστρατηγική σημασία για την ΕΕ. Επί του παρόντος, η ΕΕ δημιουργεί στενότερους δεσμούς με τις χώρες της Νότιας Ασίας. Η Ινδία είναι πλέον στρατηγικός εταίρος της ΕΕ. Η ΕΕ διατηρεί ανησυχίες για την ασφάλεια της περιοχής, μεταξύ άλλων σχετικά με τις διενέξεις στο Κασμίρ και στο Αφγανιστάν. Η ΕΕ αποτελεί ισχυρό οικονομικό παράγοντα και σημαντικό χορηγό αναπτυξιακής στήριξης και βοήθειας, και εργάζεται για την προώθηση της οικοδόμησης ...

The international Ministerial Conference on Afghanistan, held in Brussels on 4-5 October 2016, was a success. High representatives of 75 countries and 26 international organisations renewed their commitment to Afghanistan’s stability and development; they also pledged EUR 13.6 billion to support the unity government until 2020. However the country is going through very difficult times: in 2016 insurgents have committed more attacks, which have caused more victims, and controlled more territory than ...

Over the past few years, the world’s commitment to peace and its capacity to deal with evolving security challenges have been put to the test. The outcomes – an increasing number of refugees, an expanding network of terrorist organisations, some countries’ high dependency on international aid, and a relatively low level of respect for civil liberties around the world – demonstrate an urgent need for reflection and adaptation.

Security in Afghanistan: Unfinished business

Εν συντομία 25-02-2016

Even though the NATO-led military operation against the Taliban ceased in 2014, security in Afghanistan is still elusive. A divided government, weak security forces and poor economic performance make the fight against insurgency, terrorism and criminal networks more complicated. To help Afghanistan further consolidate the progress achieved to date and support its growth, the EU is focused on reinforcing democracy, fostering the rule of law and respect for human rights, and encouraging development ...

Kazakhstan's long-held stability threatened

Εν συντομία 08-02-2016

Russia's annexation of Crimea and the conflict in eastern Ukraine are worrying Kazakhstan, given its large Russian minority in the regions bordering Russia. Kazakhstan's proximity to Afghanistan exposes the country to threats such as religious extremism, drug trafficking and terrorism, particularly after NATO's withdrawal from Afghanistan. Russia is increasing its influence in regional security matters and pushing Kazakhstan for greater cooperation in the fight against shared threats.

Pakistan and China: 'Iron Brothers' Forever?

Λεπτομερής ανάλυση 18-06-2015

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of China have enjoyed long-lasting and friendly ties – despite their ideological differences, evident in their very names. The two share far more than a 520 kilometre border, as underscored by the April 2015 visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Pakistan. On that trip – his first trip abroad in 2015 – Xi announced a EUR 41.30-billion commitment to building a multi-faceted network called the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The ...
