There is no way that Indonesia could have completely avoided the swift spread of the Delta variant. But Indonesia has struggled to bounce back because there just isn’t enough supply of vaccines in the country. @sdjaffrey discussed on @democracynow:…
Talks between China and the Taliban are not new, but the speed and extent of China’s adjustment in its Afghan policy raise questions about its strategy going forward— an issue for both regional and global stability. @FGodement writes in @i_montaigne:…
As Lebanon’s government formation process continues, President Aoun can take pride in a singular achievement in having augmented his presidential powers. But most Lebanese don’t share the enthusiasm. @BeirutCalling writes in @TheNationalNews:
Now that the Taliban have seized control of Afghanistan, what will happen to women and girls? @SaskiaBrech highlights how despite the Taliban’s claimed commitment to upholding “women’s rights under Islam,” eyewitness accounts tell a different story:
For decades, technology policies have been shaped by two competing approaches: one that empowers individuals and respects human rights, and one designed to give governments control. @EvanFeigenbaum & @MikeNelson say South Korea offers a third way:

Nothing remotely resembling the “inclusive government” that the Taliban have promised is likely to appear in Afghanistan, while drug trafficking and religious extremism will mushroom. Kirill Krivosheev assesses the fall-out from the Taliban’s takeover:
You don’t get to lose a war and expect the result to look like you’ve won it. That is the terrible truth that the collapse of the Afghan government has proved, but that some in Washington still refuse to accept. @stephenwertheim writes in @washingtonpost:
The Taliban took over Afghanistan far more quickly than most anticipated, and the lives of many Afghans who assisted the U.S. still remain in danger. 11 Carnegie experts reflect on what these momentous changes mean for Afghanistan and for the world:
For the time being, an alignment of interests favors a forward Chinese policy into Afghanistan, while it has no reason to contain or even discourage the Taliban’s terrorist actions. @FGodement assesses China’s stance on Afghanistan for @i_montaigne:…
The situation in Lebanon has deteriorated radically in recent months. Thus, the fact that President Aoun has blocked the formation of a government since last October may come back to haunt him. @BeirutCalling writes in @TheNationalNews:…
Russia may have bet on the Taliban coming to power, but its confidence in the Islamic militant group may be short-lived, as nothing remotely resembling the “inclusive government” it has promised is likely to appear. Kirill Krivosheev explains:
Instead of accepting and learning from America’s loss in Afghanistan, some foreign policy leaders cling to old myths—that the U.S. should and could transform Afghanistan, if only it tried long and hard enough. @stephenwertheim writes in @washingtonpost:…
Despite their geopolitical and technological power, the United States and China are not the world’s only major digital players. In a new volume, experts examine South Korea’s approach to data and what the rest of the world can learn from it:
Across Iran, new city council members with ties to the Revolutionary Guard are well-placed to implement a grassroots wave of Islamization. @KasraAarabi & Saeid Golkar explain why Iranian women, activists, and youths are about to face further repression:
Sobering speaking with @DavidLoyn on the Taliban, the need for legitimacy, the inability to govern, the growing opposition, the horrors on the streets, regional effects, & the fast disappearing leverage of Western powers, for @CarnegieIndia…

Despite slick rhetoric from Taliban spokespeople, Afghanistan’s future under its new rulers is likely to be messy and uncertain. @Rudra_81 unpacks the many questions that remain about the country’s future as the Taliban takes over after U.S. withdrawal:

Still without a government, Lebanon is facing more crises than ever: shortages of critical goods, including fuel and bread, a devastating financial meltdown, and the ongoing pandemic. @MohanadHageAli assesses Lebanon’s long descent into crisis:
In the wake of Iran’s latest elections, the world has largely focused on Ebrahim Raisi’s presidency. But other election results, in parliament and beyond, will profoundly affect the day-to-day lives of Iranians. @KasraAarabi & Saeid Golkar write:
Lukashenko's regime has created a migrant crisis on the borders with Belarus's western neighbors, threatening regional security. As the West considers toughening sanctions, @A_Shraibman discusses recent events and explains why an escalation is probable.…

Whether Tunisian President Kais Saied’s actions constitute a coup seems irrelevant at this point. He has sown the seeds of discord rather than consensus and helped gut the institutions that could maintain the rule of law. Sarah Yerkes in @ForeignAffairs:
The Taliban’s rapid advance in Afghanistan may appear to be a welcome development for its backers in neighboring Pakistan. But the ensuing fallout could complicate matters. @AqilShah_ explains why Pakistan’s support for the Taliban is not risk-free:
As the U.S. exits Afghanistan and the Taliban advances to control more territory, it becomes important to question what this transition means for the future of the country. Tune in tomorrow as @CarnegieIndia hosts @DavidLoyn to discuss Afghanistan:

No one predicted the Taliban’s speedy victory. But now that it has taken over, what can the Afghan people and the world expect from Taliban rule? @Rudra_81 explains why Afghanistan’s future under its new rulers is likely to be messy and uncertain:
THREAD: For nearly two decades, America has sought to remake Afghanistan on a western model. It turns out that Afghanistan was never America’s to fix. I was part of the foreign policy establishment that tried to find technical solutions for the challenges of nation-building. 1/18

America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s swift gains have unnerved many other governments in the region. In @WPReview, @pstronski explains how America’s absence creates space for Russia and China to enhance their engagement in Central Asia:
Pakistan’s military leaders may see the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan as a net win, but their cynical, realpolitik support for the Taliban is not risk-free. @AqilShah_ explains the risks that U.S. withdrawal and the Taliban’s rise pose for the border:

As part of the EU’s strategic autonomy, the concept of technological sovereignty has risen in importance. What steps can Europe take to grow its technological capacity? @RCsernatoni outlines how Europe can keep moving forward:
New developments in technology are quickly outpacing Europe’s ability to regulate them. Now, Europe must also compete in technology innovation to up its defense and security platforms. @RCsernatoni explains how Europe can grow its technological capacity:
Open-source intelligence analysis of any future deal with North Korea will happen regardless of whether it is desired by the framers of an agreement or not. @mhanham explains why policymakers should embrace the many benefits that these tools offer:
Belarus has deliberately created a migrant crisis on its borders with its western neighbors in response to their support for the Belarusian opposition and Western sanctions. @A_Shraibman explains how the situation could easily get out of hand:
