    The Gambia: Operation Restore Democracy

    27 January 2017.  Last week the Gambian people saw their first democratic transfer of power. However, neighbouring states had to threaten force to secure it. Virginia Comolli makes sense of what went wrong for former president Yahya Jammeh.

    Trump and the US intelligence community

    25 January 2017. 

    President Trump has publicly denigrated the value of the United States' intelligence community (IC), imperilling the morale and retention of intelligence officers. Unless he establishes a better working relationship with the IC, the White House not only risks hollowing out the IC but could also wind up politicising the intelligence process and misusing intelligence products.

    Putinism, Populism and the Defence of Liberal Democracy

    25 January 2017.  Although Russia is a contributor to and beneficiary of the current illiberal surge, its causes lie within democratic countries, and solutions must be found at home.

    Trump's truths

    25 January 2017.  President Trump used his first few days in office to double down on disproven statements and declare war on the media. Mark Fitzpatrick argues that if this is the beginning of a tenure of untruths, responsible and fair criticism from the press is needed more than ever.

    Spies, lies and the US president-elect

    16 January 2017.  A blizzard of angry Tweets has laid bare the rift between Donald Trump and the United States intelligence community. But the saga does not suggest a Russian mastery of information warfare, argues Nigel Inkster. When the going gets tough, Trump will still look to his intelligence community for answers – even if his instincts are to disparage it.

    The Islamic Republic after Rafsanjani

    12 January 2017.  As a force for pragmatism over ideology, Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s absence from Iranian politics is likely to be keenly felt by the country’s moderate voices. As Clément Therme explains, the demise of the former president and key architect of the Islamic Republic throws debates about Iran’s future into sharp relief.

    Trump’s fraught national-security transition

    14 December 2016. 

    President-elect Donald Trump's enthusiasm for consequential policy decisions during the transition suggests that he has a greater taste for the hands-on formulation and execution of foreign policy than is commonly appreciated. Given his dubious choices of Mike Flynn as national security adviser and Rex W. Tillerson as secretary of state, and the military skew of his selections overall, this disposition intensifies worries about the path of US foreign and security policy.
