Today ESI made headlines in two major European quality dailies. On the occasion of the "sledgehammer trial" that started today, the German Süddeutsche Zeitung reported on ESI's research on the Turkish "deep state". The Austrian Der Standard wrote on the seminar ERSTE Stiftung an ESI recently organized in Vienna on whether Europe is really a continent in decline. Der Standard also interviewed Rory Stewart, a British MP, who participated in the seminar where he spoke on observations on state building and intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq (videoclip).

Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
