Il pensiero strategico come frontiera del pensiero (di Marco Emanuele)

Il pensiero strategico , di cui qui si elabora, è frontiera del pensiero: mai come oggi è venuto il tempo di percorrerla. Ci siamo lasciati alle spalle, ormai da più di trent’anni, un mondo cosiddetto bi-polare nel quale c’erano posizioni chiare che si confrontavano.

RUSSIA – UKRAINE (impact, reactions)  Brookings Even before Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine earlier today, several commentators, including former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, argued convincingly that a Russian occupation of more of Ukraine, perhaps including Kyiv, would lead to an insurgency like that which the Soviet Union faced in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

L’offensiva russa in Ucraina e le reazioni necessarie ma difficili (di Maurizio Melani)

Riprendiamo questa riflessione di Maurizio Melani, pubblicata su Lettera Diplomatica n. 1325 del 22 febbraio 2022, e di straordinaria attualità in relazione a quanto sta accadendo in queste ore.  Mi sembra difficile negarlo.

Le tensioni geostrategiche in una riflessione inusuale (di Marco Emanuele)

Un risultato, nella permanente tensione geostrategica che si respira in giro per il mondo, è chiaro: lo smarrimento delle persone di fronte a una guerra perennemente annunciata alle porte dell’Europa. Che i rapporti di forza a livello internazionale siano in fase di ri-configurazione, peraltro non da oggi, è un dato con il quale dobbiamo fare […]
