Prensa A change in the status quo in Ukraine?

Zelensky is a populist without a politic or economic program who has arrived to the victory by promising the usual in Ukraine: to end up with the nepotism, corruption and impunity; to overcome the economic stagnation and break free from the interdependence with Russia.

Prensa Brexit out of control

Brexit seems to have acquired a life of its own and feeds on the deep disagreement between the political forces, the internal division, the lack of leadership and the territorial gap. The problem is not Brussels but the political debacle that the Brexit has triggered.

Prensa The new Cuban Constitution: the petrification of the garrison State

Those who hoped that the new Magna Carta would open spaces for democratic transition will be greatly disappointed, because it maintains the communist rhetoric and gear of the dictatorship. Since international observers are not allowed, we already know beforehand what the result of the constitutional referendum.

Prensa Bolivia’s spurious primary elections

The attempt to consolidate authoritarianism in Bolivia is entering its final phase. The Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan cases are sufficient evidence for Bolivians to opt for a timely exit, before Evo Morales ends up extinguishing the remnants of democracy and freedom that remain in the country.

Prensa The end of the blind alley

The presidency assumed by Juan Guaidó and already widely recognized - not by Spain or the EU - means making all the consequences of Maduro's illegitimacy effective. The democratic opposition has rebuilt its unity and leadership and is able to offer a transition project.

Prensa Strength of Identity

Europe is in the throes of two simultaneous crises: on the one hand, it is suffering from a political crisis, a crisis of leadership, one that has led to constitutional failure; on the other, it is suffering from a loss of identity, a phenomenon that results in cultural relativism. Marcello Pera, Speaker of the Italian Senate and Professor of Philosophy of Science at the University of Pisa, delivered a conference entitled “Strength of Identity” during the course of the FAES Campus 2005, a paper which the FAES Foundation is now publishing. Also known as the co-author of the book Senza Radici (“Without Roots”) alongside Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), Professor Pera urges European culture to proudly recall and reaffirm its origins and its universal democratic principles: freedom, equality and tolerance. In this respect, Europe must recognise the intrinsic value of a civilisation, Western civilisation, that has given the world so many universal ideas. “Europe must be aware of the moral superiority of a series of values that have prevailed over centuries and that have produced beneficial results wherever they have become established”.
