Lebanon’s Hizbollah Turns Eastward to Syria,  Middle East Report N°153   |  27 May 2014

A Cosmetic End to Madagascar’s Crisis?,  Africa Report N°218   |  19 May 2014

Ukraine needs a government of national unity that reaches out to its own people and tackles the country’s long overdue reforms; both Russia and Western powers should back a vision for the country as a bridge between East and West, not a geopolitical battleground. 


Afghanistan’s Insurgency after the Transition,  Asia Report N°256   |  12 May 2014

To contain a growing, increasingly confident insurgency as NATO troops withdraw, Afghanistan needs continued international support, including military, and the new government in Kabul will need to reinvigorate the state’s commitment to the rule of law.

A comprehensive nuclear accord may be in reach if both sides – Iran and the Security Council permanent members plus Germany – show determination to settle on a technical agreement and isolate the deal from its complex regional context.

Flight of Icarus? The PYD’s Precarious Rise in Syria,  Middle East Report N°151   |  8 May 2014
