Unklarer Wahlausgang

Es hat nicht gereicht. Trotz aller Anstrengungen hat Premierminister Benjamin Netanjahu sein Ziel verfehlt, eine Mehrheit aus rechten und ultraorthodoxen Parteien in der Knesset zu bekommen. Damit zeichnet sich eine schwierige Regierungsbildung ab.

"Ein großer Teil der israelischen Bevölkerung findet, dass 10 Jahre Netanjahu genug sind"

Dr. Alexander Brakel im Interview zur Parlamentswahl in Israel

Nachdem im April schon einmal in Israel gewählt worden war, hat der erneute Urnengang wieder keinen eindeutigen Sieger hervorgebracht. Es gibt ein Patt zwischen der rechts-konservativen Likud-Partei von Benjamin Netanjahu und dem Mitte-Bündnis Blau-Weiß von Ex-Militärchef Benny Gantz. Beide Seiten können nicht allein regieren und müssen sich nach Koalitionspartnern umsehen. Der Leiter des Jerusalem-Büros der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Dr. Alexander Brakel, erläutert im das Wahlergebnis.

One Country, One Flag, One Constitution!

Special status of the Jammu and Kashmir revoked

The provisions of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) by giving it autonomy over internal administration of State, State’s own Flag and constitution, was read down through presidential order and thereafter a Bill of Reorganisation to convert J&K from a state of the Indian Union into two separate Union Territories (UTs) also sailed through with more than 2/3rd majority in both the houses (Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha) of Parliament (Had it been a constitutional amendment, even that would have sailed through!!). The state was divided into two Union Territories- J&K with an elected legislature including the area of POK and the Ladakh division including Aksai Chin but without legislature. This historic decision taken on 5th August 2019 also included deletion of Article 35A.

2030 Agenda: The Courage to Achieve Sustainability

The courage to achieve sustainability is necessary if we are to look boldly to the future. The 2030 Agenda shows us the way.

An Old Friend Is Back

Russian Military Cooperation in Africa

Russia’s military cooperation in Africa has hit the headlines over recent months. Since 2009, the former Soviet power has shown renewed interest in Africa and has begun to restore its old ties on the continent. Moscow’s aim is to gain access to Africa’s energy and raw material markets in exchange for arms. A glance at its engagement on the continent quickly reveals that Russia is now a force to be reckoned with in the global competition for influence in Africa.

Between Arms Race and Alliance

How Pakistan and China Are Driving Indian Defence Policy

Although India’s national security has since its independence in 1947 been endangered by conflicts with its neighbours, Pakistan and China, above all others it is the latter that has become the benchmark of Indian defence measures. The Indian military must undergo extensive reforms if it is to remain prepared for future challenges. Internationally, ambitious India hopes to maintain its strategic autonomy and avoid dependence on world powers.
