Recent developments in Afghanistan and Central Asia, largely overlooked by the media’s focus on the prospects of the US and NATO defeating the Taliban, may profoundly alter the geo-strategic layout of the region and have far reaching consequences.

These movements are also seen as posing possibly serious threats to the structure of economic and strategic interests associated with long standing American and European influence in the... Leer más

India and Pakistan's hope after Osama

Inglés

Article type: 
Article
Body: 

Osama bin Laden's killing is a potential turning point for India-Pakistan relations. The Indian government reacted to the news with an instant "I told you so" – the discovery of Bin Laden's safe house next door to the military academy in Abbottabad vindicates India's longstanding assessment that Pakistan has become a haven for jihadi extremism and the fountainhead of terrorism. The United... Leer más

Body: 

Osama bin Laden is no martyr. He is certainly no Che Guevara, whose fate at the hands of the Central Intelligence Agency was strikingly similar to his. But one cannot escape the fact that he succeeded in unleashing a chain of events that led to his nemesis, the United States, becoming a diminished power compared to what it was in the halcyon days of unilateralism at the end of the last century....

In the midst of the Arab Spring, which directly rejects al Qaeda-style small-group violence in favor of mass-based, society-wide mobilization and non-violent protest to challenge dictatorship and corruption, does the killing of al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden represent ultimate justice, or even an end to the “unfinished business” of 9/11?U.S. agents killed bin Laden in Pakistan, apparently...

I have two TNI fellows with me today, Dr Kamil Mahdi and Phyllis Bennis -- both specialists on the Middle East, to discuss the Arab Spring, Libya and the bigger region.

Egypt Now: Revolution and Counter-Revolution

Inglés

Speaker(s)

Amy Holmes**

Date: Thursday, 21 April 2011
Time: 17h30 - 19h30

Direct from Cairo, Dr Holmes will talk about the internal and external dynamics that led to the collapse of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, as well as the current period characterized by military rule. While the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has stated its intention to lead the country in the transition to democracy, the outcome of this transition is anything but clear. After assuming power on February 11, the SCAF has adopted a heavy-handed approach: Military tribunals of civilians have become commonplace. On March 23 a law was passed that outlawed demonstrations and labor strikes.The military has also been accused of torturing demonstrators and forcibly conducting virginity tests on detained women. Furthermore, there remains the possibility of a putsch, as a group called “Officers for the Revolution” are openly mobilizing against Field Marshall Tantawi, the Head of the SCAF. While it has become commonplace to refer to the "Egyptian Revolution" - it is not at all clear that what has happened in Egypt can be considered as such, especially as counter-revolutionary forces are currently gaining momentum.

** Dr. Holmes has lived in Egypt for three years and was in Cairo throughout the uprising. She is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the American University in Cairo and a documentary filmmaker.

This event is being organised by the Transnational Institute. Light refreshments will be served. To confirm your participation please e-mail Brid Brennan: bridbrennan [at] tni.org For further information telephone: 020-662.6698
