Americko-indické obavy z OBOR
Nová Hedvábná stezka neboli „Jedno pásmo, jedna cesta“ (One Belt, One Road, zkráceně OBOR), je ekonomicko-geopolitický koncept postupně formulovaný vládou čínského prezidenta Xi Jinpinga. Ekonomické ratio OBORu je velmi prosté: projekt pomůže zvýšit propojenost Číny a Evropy (a zemí, které se nacházejí „po cestě“), skrze investice do fyzické infrastruktury, čímž se zkvalitní dopravní síť mezi Východem a Západem a usnadní obchodní výměna. OBOR však má i své geopolitické ratio, které v očích některých států a pozorovatelů přebíjí na první pohled pozitivní ekonomické dopady na dotyčné země. Peking totiž prostřednictvím výhodných půjček na projekty v infrastruktuře v cílových zemích získává nástroj, který může v budoucnu použít k vytváření politického tlaku.

Russian Election 2018: Is all as it seems?
On 18 March 2018, Russians will head to polls and Vladimir Putin will undoubtedly be elected as President for another six-year term. Even four months out from the election, few would be foolish enough to disagree with this, and yet, Russia’s political atmosphere feels uncharacteristically on edge. This, of course, cannot be attributed to the expected landslide for the incumbent Putin. Rather a number of trends have surfaced over the last few months and added some intrigue to an otherwise featureless political landscape.
Největší současná humanitární krize v jihovýchodní Asii
Od konce minulého roku se v Rakhinském státě opět zvedla vlna nepokojů a konfliktů mezi tamními muslimy a buddhistickými Rakhinci, kterých je z celkové populace v Rakhinském státě většina. Nepokoje mezi těmito dvěma skupinami přitom mají mnohem delší historii a sahají až do 19. století, kdy do této západní části Myanmaru přišlo několik desítek tisíc muslimů ze sousedních států jako Bangladeš nebo Indie.

Zapad 2017: Could Russia Succeed in Opinion War?
On September 14-20 Russia jointly with Belarus conducted large-scale strategic military exercise - the Zapad (West) 2017. The exercise takes place in the Western Strategic Direction, at ranges located in the Republic of Belarus as well as in the Kaliningrad, Leningrad, and Pskov regions every four years. This quadrennial exercise is not a new one, but the Zapad 2017 exercise has received a huge attention, even before it has formally started.

Russian Soft Power – A Different Concept
What is soft power? American political scientist Joseph S. Nye tried to simplify the definition of the key term power, essential to understanding the behavior of societies, saying that “… power is the ability to influence the behavior of others to get the outcomes one wants”. The concept of soft power, introduced by Nye, implies the possibility for an actor to“… obtain the outcomes it wants in world politics because of other countries – admiring its values, emulating its example, aspiring to its level of prosperity and openness – want to follow it” and, “… in behavioral terms, soft power is attractive power. In terms of resources, soft power resources are the assets that produce such attraction”.

The Right to Self-Determination: Catalonia plebiscite
Today, October 1, Spain’s autonomous region of Catalonia will strive to hold a referendum on its proposed secession from Spain, despite attempts by Spain’s central government and Constitutional Court to thwart it. Arrests, prosecutions, ballot box confiscations, referendum site and poll station shutdowns by police have plunged the region into a state of emergency. The crackdown has polarized the nation as well as foreign observers and exacerbated the secessionist spirit amongst Catalans, who no longer see the referendum as a fight for independence but also for democracy and freedom of expression.

Russian Orthodox Church as a Source of Soft Power
Russian Orthodox Church is at the time the biggest nongovernmental organization in the Russian Federation, a center of the Orthodox faith and therefore a substantial source of the soft power in the Russian Federation. Alongside its conservative values, Orthodox Church tends to promote the “dialogue of civilizations” between the West and Russian-Slavic-Eurasian cultural space, refusing the globalization ideas along with the spreading of the Western (notably American) values and norms as universal values.
