Three Scenarios for the Development of the Sisi Regime in Egypt

Although the scenario of a development dictatorship appears less plausible, the occurrence of one of the other two sce­narios is much more likely. Both are asso­ciated with high risks and costs, for Ger­many and the European Union (EU). The central prerequisite for the “Mubarak 2.0” scenario would be permanent, substantial financial assistance, which would primarily be to the detriment of European national budgets, as well as the acceptance of a fur­ther deterioration in the human rights situa­tion. In this way, socio-economic decline could, at best, be slowed. Migration pres­sure and radicalization tendencies among young Egyptians are likely to increase.

Is Tunisia Really Democratising? Progress, Resistance, and an Uncertain Outlook

Tunisia is tending towards a hybrid system. The crucial point here is that such a hybrid system would probably not be able to carry out the key reforms which both the international com­munity and the Tunisian population ex­pect. Reforming the state apparatus and highly corrupt economic structures is im­perative to ensure sustainable social and political stability in Tunisia. Preventing hybrid political structures from becoming entrenched is therefore of critical importance.

Life Under Islamic State: A First-Person Account

Today, life is still difficult in many respects. Water is supplied from a place called Ain Dhikr to the north, but we still have no electricity and must continue to use solar panels to generate power for the time being. The JKBW’s presence also meant that some houses and other buildings were booby-trapped with explosives. Like other areas in Syria, we have been impacted by the fuel crisis caused by American sanctions.

Al-Bashir: why the ICC is between a rock and a hard place

The fact that al-Bashir has been deposed will again raise questions about whether there’s a possibility of seeing the former Sudanese president facing trial at the ICC. Commentators have already expressed different opinions on whether he will or won’t end up facing trial at The Hague. Views either highlight the fact that he’s likely to face trial because he no longer enjoys the privileges associated with his position. Or that he still has influence over the new government and, as such, bringing him to The Hague would be extremely complicated.
