Αναζητώντας κανείς αν το κόμμα "Νίκη" αποτελεί πεδίο ρωσικής υβριδικής απειλής στις #εκλογες_2023 της #Greece μετά τον κατακερματισμό της ακροδεξιάς, αντισυστημικής ψήφου δεν γίνεται να μην πέσει πάνω στην ιστορία του ρωσικού #softpower στη Βόρειο Ελλάδα και δη στη θρησκεία.

🧵 Image
Η ιστορία ξεκινάει το 1993 με την ίδρυση του σταθμού "4ε" γνωστού και ως "καναλιού της Εκκλησίας" ή "καναλιού Μητρόπολης Θεσσαλονίκης" από τον π. Θεόφιλο Ζησόπουλο. Image
Ο Ζησόπουλος δραστηριοποιήθηκε εκτός Μητρόπολης Θεσσαλονίκης με αναφορές στην υπό ρωσική επιρροή μοναστική παράδοση του Αγίου Όρους (την γνωστή) διευθύνοντας την αδελφότητα "Λυδία", το ραδιόφωνο της οποίας άνοιξε τον δρόμο για τον τηλεοπτικό σταθμό που έδωσε βήμα στον Νατσιό Image

💬 "Je perçois la #Russie comme une grande nation qui reprend sa place et qui doit procéder à certaines rectifications de frontières [...]. C’est un pays qui subit depuis des décennies des provocations US et européennes d'extensions en #Ukraine."

- Emmanuel Todd (avril 2023) 👇 Image
💬 "Ce qui me fascine actuellement c’est de voir la #Russie reprendre un sens universel très différent, avec une vision de la #souveraineté des nations qu’on pourrait appeler néogaulliste (!)." #EmmanuelTodd
💬 "La conception d'un monde unipolaire sous direction américaine est inacceptable pour les Russes, mais il ne se contentent pas de défendre leur nation, la Russie, mais le principe même, universel, de la nations souveraine." #EmmanuelTodd

🇫🇷 "La #guerre économique transcende totalement la distinction entre le légal et l’illégal"

Retour sur l'audition à huis clos de J. Célestin-Urbain, chef du SISSE (@Economie_Gouv) devant la commission d’enquête relative aux ingérences étrangères (14/03).

🇫🇷 Qu'est-ce que le SISSE ? C'est le service de l’information stratégique et de la sécurité économiques. Il a pour mission de protéger les actifs stratégiques de l’économie française contre les menaces étrangères. Il dépend de la @DGEntreprises du @Economie_Gouv. Image

KOCCA (Korea Creative Content Agency), tracks the cultural industries and releases the latest gov't figures. As of now, the most recent figures are until Dec 31 of 2021. #KOCCA won't release the 2022 figures until next year. So, do you want to see how the industry is doing? #kpop Image
If you look at this you can easily see that music remains a small part of Korea's cultural exports. Even though we see growth year after year, the growth is not happening on the same rate as the growth in games (Wow! Almost 70% of Korea's cultural exports!).
The cultural industries themselves are not all of Korea's exports, and if you compare the dollar amount of these exports below, you can see how much they dwarf music, which still exports under 1 billion USD. This doesn't mean the cultural exports aren't important, they are. ImageImage

[Enquête d'@a_hmissi sur le #softpower Saoudien🇸🇦 en France🇫🇷]

Que cache les rumeurs sur la #VenteOM🟦 à l’#ArabieSaoudite ?

Le rachat du club le plus populaire de France pourrait être un grand coup dans le cadre d'une stratégie d'influence plus globale.

L’actualité fait régulièrement écho des dérives de la monarchie en matière de droits humains : Assassinat de #Khashoggi, kidnapping du 1er ministre libanais Saad Hariri, guerre au Yémen, arrestation des militants saoudiens #RaifBadawi et @LoujainHathloul
Pour redorer l’image de son pays, le prince héritier d’Arabie Saoudite, Mohamed Ben Salmane, mise sur une stratégie d’influence non coercitive : le soft power.

The article identifies main vectors of China’s engagement in the so-called Global South & examines their adaptive nature with particular reference to the recent "debt backlash" and the increasing soft-powering of development aid. 2/5
The Chinese development policy is currently undergoing a substantial reorganisation towards #softpower initiatives in response to (geo)political backlashes arising from the previous implementation of the #BRI & the risks such loans present to the Chinese economy. 3/5

My new article just out @ForeignAffairs argues that the #US and #China are not directly competing for #SoftPower. Instead, what we are witnessing is #coexistence of their distinct approaches and practices.… 1/10
First, I contrast the more ideational or ideological #SoftPower conception and practice by the #US with the more #pragmatic approach of #China. The #US emphasizes liberal values, whereas #China stresses material welfare and mutual development as part of its vision. 2/10
The #US public diplomacy celebrates and promotes idealized vision of #American democracy. #China promotes its economic accomplishments and fuses practical benefits with cultural programming. This distinction is especially notable in the #GlobalSouth. 3/10

The flood of foreign Govt visitors post-Ukraine, suggests, that they are finally trying to understand #India & #GOI #policy from the "horses mouth" (instead of seeing it through the biases of neo-colonialists and their Indian agents).

Considerazioni sparse. Thread

1) #Putin ha detto che vuole "decolonizzare l'#Ucraina dall'#Occidente".

Non solo non riconosce al popolo ucraino libertà di scelta,
ma corollario è che la vuole ricolonizzare alla #Russia. ⤵️
2) Tutti i Paesi ex URSS/ PattoVarsavia, appena indipendenti hanno asserito che unirsi alla #NATO era unica garanzia per non subire ancora l'#aggressività della #Russia

Avevano ragione

Quindi, se PRIMA l'#Ucraina poteva restare fuori, OGGI #Putin le ha dato motivo di entrarvi⤵️
3) Gli antiamerikani d'Europa che strizzano l'occhio a #Putin invertono totalmente causa ed effetto nei fatti storici

Sia in I che II GM gli #USA erano in splendido isolamento e li abbiamo chiamati NOI a dirimere i nostri conflitti

Come abbiamo volentieri delegato ns Difesa⤵️

1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

Minister Ma Hui attended @BrandFinance’s Global Soft Power Summit 2021 and shared his views on #China’s #SoftPower.
Ma said, China believes that in the fight against #Covid19, countries should put people front and centre. China has given top priority to protecting the safety and health of the people, providing tests, hospitalization and treatment to all those in need.
China has pooled all resources, rallied all sectors and adopted comprehensive prevention and control measures. 40,000 medics rushed to Wuhan during the Chinese New Year holiday. Chinese ppl come to each other’s aid.

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:…

If I am to be suspended with so many other independent journalists, writers, which is likely... along with my brothers and my sisters... there is one more thing I must do.

And that is to share this single Lucy Parsons quote.

#Classwar Image
In response to negative comments, those unsettled by quote. The expression must be understood not as violence, but as self-defense. Freedom fighters, fighting against imperial invasions/occupations - fighting for their own lives & the lives of their loved ones, understand this.
Land defenders, Indigenous peoples that resist the #colonizers - that must defend themselves against a genocide that has never ended. Those fighting for their own lives, the lives of their loved ones, & the land to which they are connected & belong to. They understand this.

For EU scholars advocating for stronger #EU-#Taiwan ties, it’s key to grasp what our European trade offices (15: 🇦🇹 🇧🇪🇨🇿🇩🇰🇫🇮🇫🇷🇩🇪🇭🇺🇮🇹🇱🇺🇳🇱🇵🇱🇸🇰🇪🇸🇸🇪) do on the ground, and how much the EU 🇪🇺 & its member states can & want to do with/in TW. Long🧵 follows:
Met with Frederic Verheyden, #Belgium’s representative this morning. A compelling talk, in many regards, not least bc of our Bruxellois connection & good company @maxime_ramon Sharing a few reflections, starting w/trade & investment, essence of all EU offices’ presence in TW 1/9 ImageImageImage
#EU is the nr 1 investor in #Taiwan, but few people in TW actually know. Challenges will remain for the EU to leverage its raw economic power in a political context, as well as to leverage a joint image, given its fragmentation 2/9

Wie konnte es China schaffen, die öffentliche Meinung zum #Coronavirus und den #Lockdown Maßnahmen so stark zu beeinflussen?
Diesmal ein sehr langer (sorry🤷‍♂️) Thread, in dem ich ein paar Beispiele aufzeigen möchte. Einen angenehmen Tag noch 😌 ->
Es kursierten zahlreiche Amateuraufnahmen aus Wuhan im Internet, die zeigten, dass China gezielt Falschinformationen produziert und verbreitet. Viele dieser Videos sind verschollen. Dieses Video ist seltsamerweise noch da "Es ist alles Fake" ->
Ein weiteres, in einem Krankenhaus in Wuhan aufgenommenes Video stellte sich später als nicht ganz so Heimlich heraus. In Wirklichkeit war dies Teil der chinesischen Propaganda. Das Video und der Inhalt waren vllt echt, der Whistleblower aber nicht ->

Bu zincirde okuduğum ve okunmasının faydalı olduğu düşündüğüm biraz aşağıdaki alanlarla ilgilenenlerin okumasının gerekli olduğunu düşündüğüm makaleleri paylaşacağım.
Tabii özellikle uluslararası ilişkiler, siyaset bilimi ve tarih üzerine olanları.
İlk makalem John Mearsheimer’ın “Back to the Future” makalesi. Özellikle çok kutuplu, iki kutuplu sistemi, yani Soğuk Savaşı anlamak için kült bir makale. Soğuk Savaş’ta nasıl uzun süreli barış sağlandı sorusuna cevap arıyor yazar. Günümüzdeki büyük güçlerin mücadelesi + Image
Uluslararası Sistemi anlamak için önemli.
Özellikle Çin’in yükselişiyle ne gibi bir durum oluşacak sorusunun cevabını bulmaya da yardımcı olacak.

Beberapa hari ini saya datang 'mood' mengulas pasal industri hiburan Jepun dan Korea Selatan.

Jangan pula korang ambil kesempatan untuk hentam Melayu. Tujuan saya cuma nak memberi pencerahan tentang konsep 'soft power' sahaja.
Dalam hubungan antarabangsa, industri hiburan atau budaya popular kalau digunakan secara strategik, ia akan membantu negara memprojek kuasanya.
