Όταν πριν από δέκα χρόνια, οι ΗΠΑ έσπευσαν να βοηθήσουν τις τουρκικές δυνάμεις να συλλάβουν τον ηγέτη του Εργατικού Kόμματος του Κουρδιστάν (PKK), Αμπντουλλάχ Οτσαλάν, πολλοί μίλησαν για το τέλος του Κουρδικού ζητήματος, ελάχιστοι όμως μπόρεσαν να αναλύσουν το γεγονός εκείνο μέσα από ένα διαφορετικό στρατηγικό πρίσμα. Το θέμα αυτό ήρθε στην επιφάνεια μετά την επίσκεψη του Ομπάμα στην Τουρκία τον περασμένο Απρίλιο και τις έκτοτε εξελίξεις γύρω από τη Μεσανατολική διάσταση του Κουρδικού. Μέσα σε λιγότερο από εκατό χρόνια, αφότου το Κουρδικό άρχισε να σχηματοποιείται ως γεωπολιτικό ζήτημα στην Μέση Ανατολή, δεν είχε πάρει τέτοια περιφερειακή διάσταση όπως τη σημερινή.

Until recently, we used to teach our students that economic development is driven by four   foundational factors of production:  Land, labor, capital, and entrepreneurship.   In the digital age we need to add one more latent element, Information Technology, in recognition of the fact that technology defines the competitiveness of agriculture, the efficiency of industrial production, and the productivity of the steadily rising services sector, which includes governmental output.

Dr. John M. Nomikos (RIEAS Director) participated in the “Century, Intelligence, Security and Anti-Terrorism in the 20th Century” on 13-14 November 2009 in Koper- Capodistria, Slovenia.
