Étude : Réconciliation nationale en Côte d'Ivoire : Où en sommes nous ?

Évaluation du processus de réconciliation nationale en Côte d'Ivoire

La Côte d’Ivoire a connu la rupture de son contrat social, d’abord avec le coup d’état de 1999 et ensuite celui manqué du 19 septembre 2002 qui s’est mué en une rébellion armée avec la partition du pays entre le nord et le sud. Les élections de 2010 sensées être celles de sortie de crise vont connaitre finalement un dénouement violent avec officiellement 3000 morts, plus de 150 femmes violées et de nombreux déplacés internes, sans compter les nombreux dégâts matériels.

Die rumänische Ratspräsidentschaft der EU

Im Zeichen des Konflikts um den Rechtsstaat

Am 1. Januar 2019 hat Rumänien für sechs Monate die Ratspräsidentschaft der EU übernommen. Belastet wird sie jedoch durch Konflikte um den Rechtsstaat und die Unabhängigkeit der Justiz.

A Huge Leap to Green Energy?

The Future of Africa’s Energy Supply

The lack of a comprehensive, reliable electricity supply is a central obstacle to economic development on the African continent. In times of climate change, the question arises as to how the rising energy demand can be met in a climate-friendly manner. Western partners, and Germany in particular, emphasise the opportunities presented by renewable energy, but some African countries are already making plans for nuclear alternatives – and fossil fuels are by no means out of the running, either.

Dedicated Democrats against the Global Trend?

Attitudes towards Democracy in Africa

Africa contains more transitional democracies than any other world region. Could the crisis of the liberal world order draw the continent towards authoritarianism? This article suggests that Africa’s democratisation may continue despite the current global trend towards illiberalism. Survey responses from 36 societies on the continent reveal a widespread commitment to the practices and principles of liberal democracy.

Down with Defeatism!

On the Crisis of the Liberal World Order

The crisis of the liberal world order is a crisis of self-confidence above all else. Despite all our self-criticism, we must not fall prey to defeatism, but should instead reflect on our own strengths and continue the success story of the last 70 years.

Editorial

The liberal world order is in crisis. Signs of internal disintegration combined with new external challenges are creating a maelstrom of conflicting interests that certainly gives grounds for concern. The fact that, now of all times, the United States is increasingly abandoning its role as defender and guarantor of the “Pax ­Americana” is seriously exacerbating the situation and poses the question: who will save the liberal world order?
