Alcuni temi dal diario di oggi:

– Digital Diplomacy per l’EuropaIn the second that just elapsed, over 116 terabytes of data were exchanged throughout the internet, an amount comparable to ten times that produced by the Hubble Space Telescope in one year. Data has become an essential resource for economic growth, job creation and societal progress. It will ‘reshape the way we produce, consume and live’  (EUISS)

– La Turchia in AfghanistanAfter initially offering to secure and run Kabul airport, Turkey is now trying to find a role for itself after the Taliban’s sweeping victory in Afghanistan and the massive civilian and military evacuation that ended on August 30. At this point, however, it is not clear how much Ankara can achieve in the country and at what price (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace) 

– L’ombra lunga dell’11 settembreSeptember 11th, 2001 changed how the United States conceptualized and conducted counterterrorism for a generation. In the aftermath of the attacks, President George W. Bush vowed that the United States would fight “…until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated” – thereby ushering in a new era of national security, of prolonged conflict and expansive decisions to use lethal force, including through remote means and under opaque justifications. A lethal U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2002 operationalized, for the first time, the development and sustainment of an exceptional program for using lethal force against perceived threats outside widely recognized war zones. Twenty years after 9/11, that exception is at increasing risk of becoming the rule, in which the United States assumes broad authorities to lethally target people around the world seemingly in perpetuity and in secret, with limited oversight, and with even more limited accountability (Stimson Center)

– L’impegno di Taiwan nell’industria spazialeTaiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said Sept. 14 the country “must secure a strategic position in the space industry’s supply chain” by leveraging its competitive edge in semiconductor and precision engineering. To that end, Taiwan’s leader called for cooperation between government, the private sector and academia to launch a “local team dedicated to manufacturing satellites and ground station equipment as soon as possible.” (Space News)
