J. Niemiec - Scientific diplomacy as a special form of implementation of the Turkish foreign policy in the Caucasus and in Central Asia

19.11.2021
The Caucasus and Central Asia are among the most important regions in Turkey's political strategy. Due to strong ethnic, religious and cultural ties which connect Turks with the citizens of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, after the collapse of the USSR in the early 1990s, the authorities in Ankara have made numerous attempts in order to establish interregional cooperation within the so-called Turkic world. Turkish foreign policy towards the states of the Caucasus and Central Asia is conducted through several diplomatic channels, among which science diplomacy is of increasing importance.

M. Volokhai - The Conflict in Cabo Delgado and South Africa’s Capability of Handling It

02.11.2021
With the fall of Apartheid and the end of the Natal Civil War in 1994, South Africa entered a period of complex and multidimensional changes related to its Defence Force and military strategy. Under the de Klerk administration, the country started to make significant shifts in its policy towards the neighbours and the whole continent. A real breakthrough was the Namibian independence and the end of the long-lasting Border War. However, this remarkable achievement was not the end of the story, as the South African government started to take relatively frequently part in the peacekeeping operations either on the local or a more significant, regional scale. In this analysis, the perspective of allegedly a more significant interference of South Africa in the security affairs of Mozambique in its northern province of Cabo Delgado is discussed.

M. E. Kınataş - The Importance of Eastern Mediterranean Energy Resources for the European Energy Security Policies

11.10.2021
Regardless of numerous environmental measures to reduce energy consumption, Europe is still one of the largest energy importers in the world. While energy consumption is essential to maintain all the prosperity of Europeans, the continent's energy resources are not self-sufficient. This dichotomy drives Europe to import more and more energy even from its political rivals. It has become Russia's largest market in the energy sector which is alarming in terms of energy security. However, Europe may have encountered a miracle in the Eastern Mediterranean. The energy resources found in the Eastern Mediterranean may create a chance to ensure more security on energy policies if Europe manages to resolve conflicts with regional actors.
