AFGHANISTAN FUTURE IN WORLD POLITICS: THE PRESTIGE WAR(27.10.2016)

Afghanistan Future in World Politics: The Prestige War

Afghanistan was one of the places where Russia and the United Kingdom clashed during the 19th century. This geopolitical rivalry went down in history as "The Great Game." The United Kingdom aimed to keep away Russian influence from its Indian colony by capturing Afghanistan. The Great Game resulted with Afghanistan staying as a buffer state. The United Kingdom protected India from the Russian threat by reinforcing its dominance in Afghanistan. The Cold War era has once again rewritten the fate of Afghanistan. It can be hard to explain Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan solely by geopolitical interests. In this regard, the incident is important because it was the last case of th...


THE SECURITY AND POLITICAL CHALLENGES THAT TURKEY FACES(1.07.2016)

The Security and Political Challenges that Turkey Faces

The attack on Istanbul international airport, the fourth terrorist attack on Istanbul this year and second in June, sends a clear challenge that the Turkish authorities cannot afford to ignore.

Turkey is the easiest target they can attack to make an immediate global media impact. 2.It is clear that Turkish security is unable to meet their challenge. ISIS and PKK are able to attack frequently and at high value targets. 3.The most worrying aspect is the ease with which foreign fighters for ISIS, the attackers were from the former Soviet...


TAIPEI-BEIJING RELATIONS UNDER TSAI ING-WEN’S PRESIDENCY(28.03.2016)

Taipei-Beijing Relations under Tsai Ing-wen’s Presidency

On 15th January 2016, Taiwan held elections and the people chose the first woman President of a country that, in good accuracy, wants to be a country, but it is not so yet. I don’t even know if it will ever be (regardless of how I feel about the matter, and my hopes or desires as a ‘citizen of the world’). Explaining in plain language, for those who are not familiar with the subject, Taiwan (also called Republic of China, whose capital is Taipei) is, from the perspective of Beijing (capital of China, which, in good accuracy is called People’s Republic of China), only a part of the big-huge China (whose capital is Beijing). Taiwan is a kind of r...
