A Trojan horse: Chinese investments in Serbia

In the past few years, Chinese investments in Serbia have intensified, strengthening economic and strategic cooperation between the two countries.

Will the pro-European power in Chișinău capitalize on its victory to the benefit of Moldova?

The Republic of Moldova has been presented with a historic opportunity, after pro-European forces, represented by the Action and Solidarity Party (PAS), have secured the Parliament, the Government and the Presidency. The post-Soviet period of transition may now be over, and the pro-European track, which has been in the limelight in Chișinău for three decades, may become irreversible.

Hot and dirty campaign in the Czech Republic

After the warm summer, a hot autumn awaits the Czech Republic. Elections to the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament are held at the beginning of October and they could change the political landscape in the country. The current political hegemon Andrej Babiš and his ANO movement could lose their position, traditional left-wing parties – communists and social democrats – may not make it to the upcoming Chamber of Deputies and there are some new political forces, such as a party led by former anti-mafia policemen, which is growing and promising "justice".

Bulgaria’s 11 july elections: the end of Borissov
Bulgaria’s 11 july elections: the end of Borissov

This Sunday Bulgaria is going through a new round of parliamentary elections, following the inconclusive ones from April which saw ruling party GERB lose votes and a Parliament dominated by opposition. The elections were called after no common ground was found between any of the parties in search of a coalition. The coming Parliament looks set to be as fragmented as the one that brought early elections. What will happen next is, thus, anyone’s guess. One thing seems sure though: long-serving former prime-minister Boyko Borissov will not return to power.

China: Behind the Capitalist façade, the Party is tightening its control

China’s global opening-up after Mao’s death and a partial adoption of capitalism have only apparently softened the communist regime in Beijing. Mao’s successors have regularly shown that they will not cede their tight grip on society and, if the system requires defending- or consolidating- they can be as ruthless as the “founding father”.
