The 7th of July, Libyan electors must go to the polls in order to elect a constituent assembly. Originally scheduled the 19th of June, the election was however postponed for few weeks, officially due to technical and logistical issues. But, behind this political event, the reconstruction agenda is scarcely emerging. In many way, indeed, elections are necessary step but not sufficient in the country reorganization after Kaddafi dictatorship | By Antonin TISSERON, Research Fellow at the Thomas More Institute | Available in French

On July, the first, Cyprus will start to chair the European Union for six months in a extremely difficult context. This island that is located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea is partly under control of Turkish troops for almost forty years. She is also involved into a grave economic crisis and Russia could increase its presence in the Cyprus business. Beside, Syria at war is not very far.

The summit of the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) is convened in Beijing on June, the 6th and 7th. It gave ground to Russia and China’s rulers to show their convergences. This is not just a mise-en-scene. Vladimir Putin’s priority is not a real and global partnership with the West. He is willing to shape a sort of Russia-Eurasia and turn to the emerging world | By Jean-Sylvestre MONGRENIER, Research Fellow at the Thomas More Institute | Available in French
Si Vladimir Poutine a pu décliner l’invitation au G8 de Washington ainsi qu’au sommet euro-atlantique de Chicago, les 18 et 19 mai derniers, un tel comportement vis-à-vis de la Chine et des Etats de l’OCS (Organisation de Coopération de Shanghaï), était (...)
Today, a few days after the massacre of Houla, François Hollande receives Vladimir Putin in Paris. Some people will see the opportunity there to move closer to the positions on the situation in Syria but the perspective of a big Russian-western market remains very improbable | By Jean-Sylvestre MONGRENIER, Research Fellow at the Thomas More Institute | Published on Atlantico.fr | Available in French
La Syrie bascule dans la guerre civile, le pouvoir de Bachar Al-Assad réprime dans le sang mais c’est avec constance que Vladimir Poutine maintient son appui et exclut une action de force. Ce faisant, il révéle l’importance de l’alliance russe avec l’appareil baathiste et son chef.
