Mali: Last Chance in Algiers,  Africa Briefing N°104   |  18 Nov 2014

As the last phase of negotiations resumes on 20 November, the Algeria-led talks between the Malian government and the armed groups in the north should not be rushed as they offer a unique opportunity for a sustainable peace agreement.

Resetting Pakistan’s Relations with Afghanistan,  Asia Report N°262   |  28 Oct 2014

As Pakistan seeks to consolidate its fragile democracy, it should seize the moment to improve relations with its Afghan neighbour. Its biggest challenge comes from within. The civilian government has to regain control over national security and foreign policy from the military.

Toward a Lasting Ceasefire in Gaza,  Middle East Briefing N°42   |  23 Oct 2014

To achieve a durable ceasefire, not only must Israel significantly change its policy toward Gaza, but, no less importantly, Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organisation must take further steps to implement their reconciliation agreement in order to enable reconstruction and stabilise daily life in the Strip.

Myanmar: The Politics of Rakhine State,  Asia Report N°261   |  22 Oct 2014

Tunisia’s Borders (II): Terrorism and Regional Polarisation,  Middle East and North Africa Briefing N°41   |  21 Oct 2014

The growing link between cartels and armed jihadi militants along Tunisia’s borders with Algeria and Libya, combined with heightened ideological polarisation, could form an explosive mix ahead of Tunisia’s legislative and presidential elections.

Afghanistan’s Political Transition,  Asia Report N°260   |  16 Oct 2014

Afghanistan’s new president, Ashraf Ghani, inherits a government that is running out of money and losing ground to the insurgency. As foreign troops withdraw, the new government must stay united and move quickly on reforms.

Bringing Back the Palestinian Refugee Question,  Middle East Report N°156   |  9 Oct 2014

With Palestinians increasingly doubtful that the refugee question can be resolved within a two-state framework, the Palestinian leadership should seek to reinvigorate refugee communities as well as to reclaim its representation of them. When diplomacy emerges from its hiatus, the leadership will be able to negotiate and implement a peace agreement only if it wins refugees’ support or at least acquiescence. 

Zimbabwe: Waiting for the Future,  Africa Briefing N°103   |  29 Sep 2014

Zimbabwe’s growing instability is exacerbated by dire economic decline, endemic governance failures, and tensions over ruling party succession; without major political and economic reforms, the country could slide into being a failed state.
