Oute-terre, special issue India

I am very honoured to announce that I am now the (international) executive editor and international affairs officer of Outre-terre, a European geopolitical journal.
Outre-terre is chaired by Prof.Michel Korinman (Paris Sorbonne) who founded the journal.

Prof.Korinman is committed to explaining the current geopolitical issues.
Without prejudice, Prof. Korinman tackles all questions, and invites authors with very different backgrounds to contribute to his in journal. If many authors are academic scholars, Outre-terre also welcomes journalists, politicians, entrepreneurs among authors.
Outre-terre journal is therefore a work of exchange that helps to better apprehend the world.
In an unstable world where we are often offered ready-made answers, Outre-terre aims to broaden our readers’ horizons.

Our latest issue, entitled “Nouvelle Delhi? (New delhi?) focuses obviously on India.
More than 30 authors agreed to publish their research results and share their insightful views of India and its relations with the world.

I personally contributed to this issue with two articles.

“L’Inde et l’OTAN: quel partenariat?” (India and NATO, which partnership?)

In this article, I study the recent improving relations between India and NATO members, but I argue that NATO-India relations are mostly defined by US-India relations, and that for NATO, facing some challenges in Europe, India is not a priority.

“L’Inde face aux nouvelles routes de la Soie” (India and the new Silk Roads”)

This article tries to expain why India has still not joined the Belt and Road Iniative developed by China. I also introduce the other connectivity strategies adopted by India and regional powers. I show that Indian neighbours, by joining the BRI are trying to balance their relations with both India and China.

Outre-terre is published by Ghazipur, London.

Europe, a new destination for migrants from Bangladesh

Article published in Outre-Terre, the European journal of geopolitics.

In this article, I explain how immigration from Bangladesh have increased in Europe since the 2011 military intervention in Libya.

The new Silk roads, a project for the world

I recently wrote an article about China’s Belt and Road initiative for “Outre Terre” a French international relations journal.

In this paper, I explain the importance of the New Silk Road in China’s foreign policy and list the challenges Beijing willl face in implementing this strategy.

Brexit: China between opportunities and uncertainties

My article entitled “Brexit: la Chine entre opportunités et incertitudes (Brexit: China between opportunities and uncertainties” has just been published in the “Brexit !” special issue of “Outre-terre”.

In this article, I explained that Brexit has threatened China’s strategy in Europe, and that, although this event may create more competition among European countries, it causes instability. Brexit might also slow down trade agreements between the EU and China.
