    Rising Israeli–Iranian tensions

    04 April 2018. 

    Tensions between Israel and Iran have increased since 10 February, when Israel shot down an Iranian-made drone launched from Syria and attacked military targets there, including Iranian installations. Policymakers in both Israel and the United States believe that Iran's strategy is to make Syria a platform for war against Israel, and broadly favour rolling back Iran in Syria. In this light, the prospect of a regional war looms larger.

    Merkel 4.0: not so different after all

    14 March 2018. 

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel will lead a new coalition government that has diluted her power and produced low expectations, amid considerable domestic uncertainty and foreign policy challenges. But Merkel’s instincts for caution, control and compromise will likely continue to make Germany a crucial stabilising force in Europe and a key player in determining the future of the European Union.
