A talk with Pejman Abdolmohammadi, Senior Assistant Professor at the School of International Studies of the University of Trento.
- Albena Azmanova’s latest book invites to re-interpret the history of modern capitalism, and to analyse its crises and resilence under new light.
- In the late 20th century most of the center-left parties in the West moved to the center on economic questions that opened up the way for new parties: populist right-wing parties and green parties that robbed the left of its distinctive historical role and profile.
- The centrist extremism of Angela Merkel’s reign has reached its end and a new political course will soon emerge in Germany. The country must reach decisive conclusions on topics such as finance, defense, immigration, technological and energy autonomy. What future for the largest economy in Europe?
- A wave of violent protests swept through Iran in the second half of November, many witness accounts and even some official statements indicate that it was the largest and most intense protest seen in Iran in the last 40 years. What sparked such protests and how is the government reacting to this wave of discontent?
- The West lost its legitimacy to say that only it can manage the world economy and the disruptive impact of the new technologies has been eating away citizenship reflexes and democratic engagement.
- The CFA franc is linked to a history of extreme colonial violence and should by now be part of the past, and therefore of numismatics, and lie in a memorabilia museum like the one on the apartheid era of comic actor and fervent activist Pieter-Dirk Uys.
- The economic and politic synergy between Italy and Russia is based on the strong complementarity.
- The eighth consecutive protest took place January 26th.
