Islamic State militants have been launching attacks on Shia communities within Saudi Arabia, and this puts Saudi Arabia into a very precarious situation.

Algieri and Schubert on European Autonomy in Space


A new book titled European Autonomy in Space features writings from Webster IR professors Dr. Samuel Schubert and Dr. Franco Algieri.

The book, published by Springer and edited by the European Space Policy Institute, collects writings from a variety of experts with different perspectives on Europe’s autonomy in space policy.

Algieri published in new text on the EU’s role in International Politics

An adaptation of Dr. Franco Algieri’s earlier work on the EU’s role in international politics has been published in a new text from the International Debate Education Association (IDEA).

A Different Kind of Power brings together important contributions from the debate on the nature of the EU. Being without historical precedent, it is still unclear exactly how the EU functions on the world stage, and in which direction it may be heading. Dr. Algieri brings his expertise to the debate with a special focus on China.

Schubert on FM4 - Palmyra

IR faculty Dr. Samuel R. Schubert spoke on Austrian national radio FM4's "Reality Check" about Palmyra, an irreplaceable treasure of human history.

Dr. Schubert alluded to the crucial strategic value of the region surrounding Palmyra. First, controlling the city cuts off the main road to North-Eastern Syria. Second, the airport of the city has been conquered and third, there are accessible gas fields.
