Rome's perspective on the Gaza war

A diplomatic balancing act on both sides of the Tiber

The Gaza war poses a dilemma for two centers of power in Rome: Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni's government, with its clear pro-Israel stance, is out of step with the majority of society for the first time since taking office. The longer the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip continue and the humanitarian situation worsens, the more sympathy there is for the Palestinian side. The Holy See, which traditionally sees itself as the protector of Arab Christians and guardian of biblical sites, is increasingly distancing itself from the Netanyahu government. However, there are deeper reasons for this. The difficult situation in the Holy Land poses challenges for both sides. An analysis.


Chad votes

The president's son reaches for power

Chadians will go to the polls on Mai 6 as military ruler Mahamat Deby wants to get elected as president of the unruly central African country. Opposition parties call for a boycott saying the elections won’t be fair as Deby controls the constitutional court, state media and the election body. The European Union nevertheless helping fund the vote as Western power worry Chad will slide into instability like other Sahel countries such as Mali. Chad is surrounded by neighbours from Niger to the Central African Republic where Russian mercenaries are active and is impacted by civil war in Sudan from where some 750.000 people had fled to eastern Chad, one of world’s poorest regions. Western powers hope the vote will pass uneventfully and will be followed by parliamentary elections, which would be the first since 2011.

Guatemala: 100 days of Arévalo’s government

Of the travails of the plainx

Bernardo Arévalo's election victory came as an absolute surprise to him, his Semilla party and Guatemala. Despite massive resistance until literally the last minute, he was able to take office on January 15, 2024. He was also supported by people and groups who did not vote for him, but who wanted to save Guatemalan democracy. After the first 100 days, however, the impression spreads that Arévalo and his government are still caught up in the element of surprise and are not prepared for the famous "travails of the plains".
