Chinese Computer Games

Chinese cyberattacks are stealing priceless intellectual property and crucial military secrets from companies and governments around the globe. Negotiations with Beijing are unlikely to help, since China has little interest in cracking down on hacking. So Washington must focus on defenses, not diplomacy.

Islamists Aren’t the Obstacle

Skeptics about the prospects of democracy in the Middle East argue that the Arab Spring has turned into an Islamist winter. But as a new study shows, instead of fretting over Islamists, the international community would do better to help Egypt and Tunisia strengthen their political institutions and reform their economies.Research conducted in Tunisia was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Center for Maghrib Studies in Tunis/American Institute for Maghrib Studies, Portland State University, Princeton University, the Project on Middle East Political Science and Yale University. Research conducted in Egypt was supported and implemented by the Al-Ahram Centre for Political and Strategic Studies and the Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute.
