New evidence reveals how a tightly concentrated global network of politicians and corporations with close ties to the Trump administration is working on behalf of powerful US fossil fuel interests in Britain and Europe. Several candidates who were in the running to become the next British Prime Minister — Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, Andrea Leadsom, and Steve Baker — are part of this pro-Trump network. The evidence comes thanks to a network map produced by (...)

With Robert Mueller's report complete, President Trump is newly on the offensive. The likely outcome is even more rancorous fighting between the opposing factions of the US elite.

Earlier this year, Le Monde diplomatique published the second edition of its atlas , and the United Nations Environmental Programme , in partnership with the paper, published a translation of the part of it that focuses on environmental issues . It's a difficult business being a mapmaker. Maps, as mere visual representations of the idea of the world, are just as subject to diplomacy, border disputes and international struggles as real geopolitical territory.

Democracy advances in Africa, but heads of state still manipulate constitutions to extend their reign. Most of these elected dictators are in francophone countries. The constitutional referendum held on 25 October in Congo-Brazzaville (Republic of Congo) was marred by violence, boycotted by the opposition, and smacked of political brigandage. President Denis Sassou-Nguesso, head of state since 1979 (except 1992-7) had managed to manipulate the constitution to allow him to seek a third (...)

Liberalism is for others. Although it insists on unlimited access for American products from the rest of the world, Washington has not hesitated since the end of the second world war to intervene financially, politically and diplomatically in sectors it considers strategic for maintaining US dominance. Communication is one of these sectors, and the most critical one, from both the industrial and the symbolic point of view, for mastering the ‘information society' of the next century. Contrary (...)

Ethiopia and Eritrea began a spectacular rapprochement this summer, and in September signed a peace agreement. Stability in the Horn of Africa depends on that peace lasting. A peaceful revolution has transformed relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea. Apart from a few skirmishes, such as Ethiopia's 2006 intervention against Eritrea's allies in Somalia , they have coexisted peacefully since the 1998-2000 war, even though their dictators have often talked of the threat of renewed conflict. (...)

The US is pulling out of Afghanistan after two decades of fighting, says President Trump; Russia wants a buffer against ISIS; and both are extending their hands to the Taliban ahead of elections in July. President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw 7,000 US troops from Afghanistan on 20 December 2018, the day after he announced the withdrawal from Syria. US defence secretary James Mattis resigned forthwith. A few hours later the Afghan government and diplomats in Kabul woke up (...)

Before the Trumpists, there was the Tea Party, which arose during the Obama presidency to express the resentment of those who felt they were losing all hope of the American Dream. A deep story is a feels-as-if story: it's the story feelings tell, in the language of symbols. It removes judgment. It removes fact. Such a story permits those at both ends of the political spectrum to explore the subjective prism through which the other end views the world. The deep story of the foundation of (...)
