The hijack of thought, by Denis Kurunczi

The matrix Recent developments in Romanian political workings ask for clarifications. Together with media giants, political communicators, and social media users, politicians seem to seek to totally confuse the public and our partners. This is hopefully just a reflection of multiple channel public communication, a result of filtering and of media bubbles; I don’t suspect […]

Democracy in America and Britain under assault, By Harlan Ullman

After the disastrous parliamentary elections in Britain that produced a coalition government, the prime ministership of Theresa May remains in freefall. The problem is that there is no obvious alternative or acceptable Conservative leader to rally the nation and stabilize the party.

Geuropa and European Parliament with 300 members

President Junker’s reaction to President Trump’s salutations to Brexit was to support the independence of some US states. The tensions between Brussels and Washington are basically the extrapolation of the tensions between London and Berlin to negotiate the Brexit contract, whose bill, estimated at Brussels, amounts to 50 billion pounds.

The overarching challenges of GOOD GOVERNANCE

In the post-post-Cold war era, the “world risk society” i) thesis became more realistic than ever, proven by the multi-dimensional ubiquitous threats and risks, as the world is facing a type of “illiberal international order” ii).

Tech, data and innovation – can governments keep pace?

For some time now, media outlets have divided their attention towards two main topics, both of which are based on the idea of a paradigm change. On my previous post i.e. Post-truth politics and alt-reality media, I have highlighted one of them, namely the age “in which absolute truth becomes a zero-stake game and what […]

Resistance to change will make for short honeymoon for Trump

Make no mistake: President Donald Trump’s political honeymoon will end just three days after he is inaugurated on Jan. 20, on his first working day. The reason is hidden in clear sight. Both domestic and international politics require confronting the nearly infinite inertia and resistance to change no matter how justified. In threatening or promising […]

Social roots: How Romania’s Social Democrats won the 2016 election

It’s 11 December, a Sunday morning, and national elections are taking place in Romania. A middle-aged man is strutting through the dusted streets of a rural village in Giurgiu. He is saluting every person he meets on the streets, on their way to the polls, knowing them all by name; some handshakes here, some promises […]

The rising civil society in Syria

“Who/What is the alternative to Assad, what is the alternative to his regime?” A question many westerners ask. Who can take charge of shattered country the day after the conflict is over?

AMERICA WINS! Democracy Trumps Politics

Today, November 11, who won is the American people and the American Spirit. Maybe the most important consideration of this campaign – much talked about, yet little thought put into it – the American spirit and identity of the people of the United States.

The 2017 edition of the Strategikon Annual Book – The Year of Challenging Choices

It’s not easy to be a leader, but the solution is closer than people may think and it has to do with returning to some good old fashioned traits that shaped leaders in past decades: will power, values and vision. Launched at the Good Governance Summit, The Year of Challenging Choices strives to understand the fault lines in international relations and the relevant actors, as they are and not how they appear to be.
