Christians in Syria

Current Situation and Future Outlook

Syria is said to be a secular country which guarantees religious freedom. While that has never been the case, the country’s Christians were able to live their faith without experiencing any serious problems up to 2010. Many church leaders hope that situation will return, as do many Christians. The civil war has already cost over 500,000 lives, 6.5 million Syrians are now internally displaced persons and there are almost 5 million refugees. The number of Christians has dropped by half. They have fled the war, the regime and the Islamists. Will they return to Syria once the conflict is over?

Glimmer of hope for the Common Security and Defence Policy

One of the priorities of the EU is a commitment to enhanced cooperation in the area of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The process initiated in September 2016 to further strengthen the CSDP includes pragmatic measures. In view of the security policy challenges the EU is facing, the proposals only represent a small step in the long run. Further steps in both institutional and operational terms are required to turn the CSDP into an effective instrument.

Zika and Ebola: What we should learn from health crises

Health crises such as Ebola and Zika will be the rule rather than the exception. The international community should adapt to this reality and implement the far-reaching reforms developed after the Ebola crisis. It would be a mistake to orient reforms in global health policy too strictly on an Ebola-specific scenario. Zika has shown that every health crisis presents different challenges. Germany has assumed a leadership role in global health policy in recent years and can make a significant contribution with its partners to strengthen the international health architecture.

Beyond Deterrence

NATO’s Agenda after Warsaw

The landmark decision the Summit will be remembered for is the establishment of the Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP), which establishes a constant rotational (and thus “persistent”) presence of a total of four multinational allied battalions in Poland and each of the Baltic republics. With its decision, NATO closes the military gap between “old” and “new” allies by establishing a credible deterrence posture for its Eastern members.

Germany’s Presidency in the G20 (III)

Global Health as a Prerequisite for Security and Stability

In December 2016, Germany will take over the presidency of the G-20. In this and two other papers, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s Working Group of Young Foreign Policy Experts makes proposals as to the points which the German government should focus on, as well as ideas for resolving global problems which should be pursued within the G20. In this way, the young foreign policy experts will be helping to shape Germany’s international responsibility in a concrete way. This third paper concerns the importance of global health for security and stability.

Social Bots

Invasion of the social bots

„Social bots are software robots programmed by humans. They collect information and data, but also systematically introduce trends and key topics into social media without users being aware of it. The influencing potential – the so-called “bot effect” – is theoretically very large, but difficult to prove empirically.
