What do we think about the rise of this new political entity, called “the civilizational state”? Several #IR works offer guidance regarding the relationship between #civilizations and the liberal international order. A (long!) thread--->
1) The discussion often starts with an understanding of civilizations as culturally distinct units. For Huntington, a consensus-based liberal order is not durable because civilizational differences are incommensurable.

2) But as Huntington’s critics have shown, civilizations have porous borders and are internally pluralistic. Katzenstein’s trilogy, for example, shows that there are more trans-civilizational engagements and inter-civilizational interactions.

En ces temps où le débat sur la fiscalité fait rage, je vous propose un fil sur une série de propositions que je qualifierais de réformes de « tuyauterie », par opposition aux réformes de « robinet ». 1/14
Les réformes que je qualifie de « robinet » portent sur des changements des paramètres fiscaux (taux, seuils des tranches et exonération) des barèmes déjà existants. Elles peuvent poursuivre différents objectifs (justice fiscal, emploi, croissance, …) 2/14
Les réformes de « tuyauterie » changent l’organisation de la fiscalité. A titre d’exemple, la fusion IR/CSG, le prélèvement à la source… Dans leur forme épurée, les réformes de tuyauterie ne devraient pas changer les transferts, mais seulement la manière de les organiser 3/14

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
