WILL AFGHANISTAN BECOME THE NEXT PROXY WAR?(13.03.2017)

Will Afghanistan Become The Next Proxy War?

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Çınar from the Department of International Relations in Bitlis Eren University interprets what further Russian involvement in Afghanistan of late could mean with regards to regional politics. The materialisation of the September 11 attacks in between the then on-going post-Cold War American global hegemony discussions once again put the spotlight back on Afghanistan. Afghanistan has turned into a matter of "prestige" during the War on Terror initiated by the George W. Bush administration. In other words, the "Enduring Freedom Operation" was the first indication that the USA was becoming a global hegemon. The US’ involvement in Afghanistan was unrivalled and dif...


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...

Azerbaijan awaits a tailwind from Washington: An upcoming nuclear summit could reinforce the alliance

Last week, the Obama administration took a positive step in dealing with the United States’ lack of real friendships and genuine alliances in the Muslim world.

According to Novruz Mammadov, deputy head of Azerbaijani presidential administration and chief of the administration’s foreign relations department, Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev was invited to attend the fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., to be held in March. This highlights the indispensable role this small nation on the Caspian Sea play...

The

The "Islamic State" terrorists are focusing on Central AsiaGreater Khorasan is a historical region of Greater Iran, which once included a considerable territory - in particular Afgha-nistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbe-kistan and Tajikistan. But, in the view of the leaders of the terrorist organisation "Islamic State" (IS), the future "Khorasan", which is to be under their leadership, should also include Pakistan, Afghanistan, the eastern and northern regions of Iran, where ethnic Azeris live, the republics of Central Asia, part of India and Western China. The leaders of the terrorist organisation have announced the creation of an administration for thi...


INTERVIEW WITH PROF. ALEXANDER MURINSON BY FUAD SHAHBAZOV(6.10.2014)

Interview with Prof. Alexander Murinson by Fuad Shahbazov

Violence in the Middle East has intensified and drawn the attention of the global powers. That is why I want to discuss this topic with Professor of the Bar-Ilan University, Dr. Alexander Murinson. After the Arab Spring uprisings, the Middle East was threatened by chaos and anarchy, which is still ongoing in Iraq, Syria and Libya. While these high tensions in the Arab world have not subsided, there is a menace of a new regional war. Could the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS) precipitate it?A lot of confusion persists about the structure and leadership of the Islamic State of Iraq and Shams (ISIS) terrorist movement, currently known as the Islamic State (IS...
