Russia’s views, Vatican leadership, extreme weather, women – Cat’s daily selection of top links FromOverHere #052

22 Dec

Here are today’s hot links on strategy and international affairs:

1. Resolving European contradictions and Western self-delusion: Russia’s ambassador to the UK gives his views on the recent developments in international relations and implications for 2012

2. Given concerns about Women’s rights post the Arab Spring: here’s hoping that next year will show even more the role that women play in foreign policy – see the US’ State dept action plan for making this happen

3. Wrestling with the costs of extreme weather: although the insurance industry have not been the catalysing long-term agent that activists had hoped, it is slowly but surely raising concerns about the costs of climate change

4. Canadian view on grand strategy: an assessment of how Canada is doing plus views across the border to the US

5.  A Part-time Pope: given the Vatican’s history as one of the longest-standing political global institutions, interesting to see debates regarding its strategic leadership
