David and Goliath: Bosnian Serbs Against the West (I)

"On June 20-th the High Representative for Bosnia, Austrian Valentin Inzko, annulled legislation passed by the Bosnian Serb, Republika Srpska (RS), parliament that would reclaim some of the powers of “semi-autonomy” that were promised to it in the constitution but that have been stripped away incrementally by International Community (IC) High Representatives under the so-called Bonn powers..."

Who owns or claims to own the Arctic?

"Would that the question posed was "who owns or claims to own Antarctica"? The answer is, by international agreement, no one. The Arctic, however, is a much different story where eight nations, Russia, Canada, the United States, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland all have a stake in the Arctic's icy real estate. Growing up in Canada, I had no doubt that the Arctic belonged to us..."

The “Nuclear Crisis” Around North Korea. Pyongyang's Logic

"Obviously, the North Korean leadership's tendency not to escalate the theme of the missile and nuclear tests and to avoid generating military-political hype around it deserves a separate analysis. It is possible that Pyongyang's statements that the tests are meant to nothing more than strengthen the country's nuclear deterrence forces in order to ensure independently and responsibly the security of the Korean Peninsula – and by no means to threaten any other country or to attract the international aid – are not groundless..."

Secret Run-Up to World War II: the Responsibility of the West

"When the quite reasonable suggestions are made to declare September 30 – the date of the signing of the Munich Agreement – the day of commemorating the victims of liberalism and Nazism, it should be remembered that the notorious deal was just one in a chain of events planned by the Anglo-American financial elite whose strategy was centered on organizing an armed conflict between the USSR and Germany..."

Can Non-aligned Movement Play a Meaningful Role?

"Can non-aligned movement, as a movement emerged during heydays of the cold war, play a role in a changed post-cold war world? Probably, the 15th summit at the Egyptian Red Sea resort Sharm el Sheikh on 15th and 16th of July 2009 would guide the scholar to seek a plausible answer as to the relevance of the organisation in the 21st century..."

Attention, Xinjiang!

"First, the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region is rich with such natural resources as oil, natural gas, coal, and uranium... Secondly, this westernmost region of China has traditionally served as the site of classified strategic research. Lop Nur, China’s largest nuclear weapons test base with the area of 100,000 square km, is located in Xinjiang... Thirdly, Xinjiang borders seven countries – Russia, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, and Tajikistan – and thus plays the role of China’s gateway to the Grand Central Asia..."

An enquiry into the development of the multicultural society in the Netherlands

"The beginning of the new millennium has seen the rapid uprising of right-wing populist parties, causing the Dutch society to polarize. The big issue in this development has been the multicultural society. The accommodation and assimilation of immigrants, mainly non-western people of Islamic descent, and the problems this poses to Dutch society, has grown into the foremost important topic in the Dutch public debate..."

Africa and China

"Over the recent years interactions with Africa have occupied a high position in the list of China's foreign politics priorities. Facing a new rival in the region, Western countries even started describing Beijing's activity in the region as the Chinese expansion. At present the relations between China and African counties are at an unprecedented level..."

Future of Russian Strategic Nuclear Forces in the Light of Obama's Moscow Visit

"In any case, it is a positive result that the nuclear disarmament of Russia ended up being postponed. The Russian expert community has the time to analyze the situation and to formulate suggestions for the Russian leadership on the relations between Russia and the US in the military sphere..."

A Threat from Cyberspace

"Global informatization (or electronic communication development) has brought about the emergence of a basically new medium of confrontation between contending countries, cyberspace. By now the world has struck (or almost struck) a strategic balance in the field of conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction, but the issue of parity in cyberspace remains open..."

The Fantasy World of Central Bank Interest Rates Has Set the Stage for the Second Wave of the Global Financial Crisis

Starting from February, deposits made with the Bank of Japan began to accrue negative interest. The interest rate at the Central Bank of Japan now stands at minus 0.1%. This is no longer seen as shocking. The central banks in developed countries began backing into the negative zone for passive operations several years ago...
