Why Has Democratization Bypassed The Muslim World?

by Ruud Koopmansvia The Caravan Notebook
Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Globally, democracy has expanded since the 1970s, but in the Muslim world democracies currently number fewer than ever. The essay shows that dependency on natural resources and colonial legacies provides only a limited explanation (and in the latter case a counterintuitive one). Instead, the predominance of fundamentalist versions of Islam and widespread support for fusing religion and politics have been formidable barriers towards democratic progress in the Muslim world.

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Why Should Putin Invade, When Ukraine Can Be Destroyed From Within — With Help From Its 'Friends'?

by Paul R. Gregoryvia The Hill
Monday, December 6, 2021

Vladimir Putin does not hide his intent to destroy an independent Ukraine and to return it to the fold of “Mother Russia.” With a weakened NATO, a Germany in political flux, and a seeming push-over Joe Biden as U.S. President, Putin has a wide arsenal at his beck and call. He can invade Ukraine with overwhelming force to partition yet another swath of Ukraine territory (creating a land bridge from Donbas to Crimea).
