Today’s Choice

– Mohammed Hussein, Al Jazeera: Over the past 50 years, the world’s annual energy consumption has nearly tripled – from 62,949 terawatt-hours (TWh) in 1969 to 173,340 TWh in 2019. For centuries, burning coal was the main source of the world’s energy. – Mapping the world’s oil and gas pipelines

Chemical Weapons-Russia

– Hanna Notte, Carnegie Moscow Center: With the world’s focus on the specter of war between Russia and Ukraine, the 26th Conference of States Parties to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague at the end of last month was but a side show. – Chemical Weapons Impasse Reflects Russia’s Broader Conflict With the West


– Gabriele Carrer, Decode 39: Two reports by Datenna chart the Chinese investments in the EU and the European ones in China, highlighting the lack of reciprocity and Beijing’s strong (and unrequited) focus on strategic sectors in Europe. Regulators must monitor joint ventures, experts warn – An unbalanced relationship. Tallying Chinese investments in EU and Italy (and vice versa)


– Sarah Wray, Cities Today: Most cities now recognise the importance of partnerships and collaboration to tackle pressing societal issues and the climate crisis. But handshakes, good will and scattered agreements can only get you so far. The municipality of Leuven in Belgium is pioneering a new governance model of “radical participation,” aiming to accelerate and scale action through distributing decision-making and responsibility among residents, academia, civil society organisations and the private sector, ceding some of the city’s own power in the process. – Leuven harnesses the power of “radical participation”


– Roderick Parkes, Anna-Lena Kirch, Serafine Dinkel, DGAP: We present three scenarios for each of four global phenomena that we have chosen for their potential to change European society within a single generation. – Building European Resilience and Capacity to Act

– Gaia Ravazzolo, Decode 39: Together, Fincantieri, Naval Group and Navantia make up Europe’s biggest joint naval defence capability. The consortium submitted a proposal for the EU’s Modular and Multirole Patrol Corvette tender, pushing to develop synergies and collaboration in common European defence – European corvettes on the horizon. The Naviris proposal


– Giorgi Menabde, The Jamestown Foundation: On December 8, the third president of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, called on opposition parties to hold consultations on the formation of a temporary coalition council that would prepare the country for new elections and regime change. “We need a universal political amnesty and a roundtable on the redistribution of power and the run-up to the elections,” Saakashvili said. The former president and founding leader of the United National Movement (UNM) party added that he has no desire for any position in the government and wants a completely new generation of leaders. He himself will be engaged in the education sector (Mtavari Channel, December 8). – Growing Irreconcilable Confrontation Between Georgian Authorities and Opposition

Islamist Extremism

– Sofia Koller, DGAP: This policy brief provides a comprehensive overview of trends in tertiary prevention in Germany and other European countries as well as recommendations for policy actions. It is based on the findings of the International Forum for Expert Exchange on Countering Islamist Extremism (InFoEx), a joint project of the DGAP and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) from 2018 to 2021. InFoEx brought together practitioners, researchers, and policy makers from more than twelve countries in a unique format to discuss challenges and good practices. The main findings are 1) that European countries are mostly faced with the same or similar issues and 2) that these trends must be addressed jointly, effectively combining practice, research, and policy. – Towards More Effective Deradicalization

– Sofia Koller, DGAP: Tertiary prevention of (violent) Islamist extremism includes measures designed to encourage and support (violent) extremists in prison and in liberty in their efforts to leave their milieus, deradicalize, decriminalize, and reintegrate into society. Actors in tertiary prevention thus intervene in a multitude of contexts and work with various stakeholders. The growing understanding of the complexity of radicalization and deradicalization processes as well as practical experiences leave no doubt that multi-agency cooperation and communication is crucial to be able to reach most potential clients. However, one of the main challenges of professionals working in tertiary prevention is to identify potential points of contact, set up effective frameworks for sharing information, and establish long term relationships. – Communicating in Tertiary ­Prevention of Islamist Extremism


– Otto Lanzavecchia, Decode 39: Are Italy and Germany edging towards a strengthened partnership? The historical juncture seems favourable, and shared challenges require shared approaches. Here are the key points Scholz and Draghi will address when they meet – China, gas and beyond: all the pending dossiers between Italy and Germany


– Mairav Zonszein, Crisis Group: In the past few weeks, Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem has been the site of several violent attacks in which Palestinians, many of them teenagers, have gone out to stab Israelis, and then often paid for it with their lives. Last month, a Palestinian, just 16 years old, stabbed two border police officers in Jerusalem’s Old City, and was fatally shot. On Dec. 4, a 25-year-old Palestinian man stabbed an orthodox Israeli near Damascus Gate, then apparently tried to stab two Israeli border police officers, who subsequently shot him several times, even after he was down on the ground and no longer appeared to pose a threat. Police denied him medical attention as he lay dying. Several left-wing Knesset members condemned the death as an execution. The two border police officers were briefly questioned about their conduct, but otherwise received the full backing of Israel’s police, the security establishment and the prime minister, Naftali Bennett. – Why Jerusalem Cannot be ‘Taken Off the Table’

Multilateral Diplomacy

– Richard Gowan, Crisis Group: An era of international conflict management appears to be at an end.  In the three decades since the conclusion of the Cold War, the United States, its allies, and multilateral organizations such as the United Nations have devoted considerable political, military, and financial resources to mediating regional conflicts and civil wars and rebuilding fragile states. – Major Power Rivalry and Multilateral Conflict Management


– Andrei Kolesnikov, Carnegie Moscow Center: One of the most asked questions in recent weeks has been whether Russia will attack Ukraine, despite a slight lessening of tensions in the wake of last week’s video call between the Russian and U.S. presidents. But how would ordinary Russians respond to a war with neighboring Ukraine? – How Do Russians Feel About a War With Ukraine?


– Emanuele Rossi, Decode 39: President Saied outlines the way out of the institutional crisis – a constitutional referendum and then elections -, but the process is designed around himself. Read the doubts by former MP Ben Mohamed and an analysis by Profazio (IISS) – Will Saied’s roadmap end the Tunisian crisis?


– Sarah Miniero, SpaceNews: Vice President Harris’s chairmanship of the first National Space Council under the Biden administration earlier this month is a welcome step toward a whole-of-government approach for securing the space domain for the U.S. economy, military and civil society. Such an approach is urgently needed, as the last two months have shown: China conducted a hypersonic glide vehicle test and Russia created thousands of pieces of debris through an anti-satellite missile test. – Op-ed | How the U.S. can quickly build greater resiliency in space

– Sandra Erwin, SpaceNews: The U.S. military wants to buy more products and services from commercial space companies. This is easier said than done, however, as the Pentagon is still trying to figure out how to work with the new space sector and attract suppliers that have not traditionally pursued government contracts, officials said Dec. 14 at TechCrunch Sessions: Space 2021. – U.S. military looking to build lasting relationships with commercial space industry

– Jeff Foust, SpaceNews: If the Biden administration’s space policy has a theme after nearly one year, it’s one of continuity. The White House has avoided major changes in civil or national security space, keeping in place NASA’s Artemis program to return humans to the moon (albeit with delays that were inevitable given available funding and technical issues) as well as the Space Force and other military initiatives, like the Space Development Agency and its pursuit of low Earth orbit constellations. – The missing element of the first National Space Council meeting of the Biden administration


– Sophia Becker, Elisabeth Suh, DGAP: While all nuclear-armed states across the world are modernizing and some building up their nuclear arsenals, the Biden Administration has committed itself to limiting the role of nuclear weapons in US security policy as laid out in its Interim National Security Guidance. How this goal will be realized is still unclear. Nevertheless, President Joe Biden is considering a highly significant step: a unilateral adoption of a ‘sole purpose policy’ – a political declaration pledging to limit the purpose of US nuclear weapons “to deter – and, if necessary, retaliate against – nuclear attacks.” – How Biden’s Plan to Limit the Role of Nuclear Weapons Challenges NATO
