The Defeat of Populism in Greece
Emmanouil Mavrozacharakis

The presence of the right-wing party of Nea Dimokratia (ND) in the political spectrum of Greece reflects an enormous change in the political behavior of the public. The citizens have not just contributed with their votes to a strategic defeat of populism but also paved the way for the search for a new type of leadership, which is close to realism in handling the social problems. This is a clear trend against the overpromise and under-delivery experienced under Syriza's rule. The dominance of conservative ND is not an ideological choice. It is a choice that runs counter to the logic of falsely or hypocritically negotiating austerity measures opposed to Greece by his Lenders (memorandum) and the consequent tax-tornado as a result of negotiating failure with the partners in the EEC and the IMF. The positive choice of ND also reflects the contradiction with the misguided manipulations of public opinion regarding the strategy of micro concessions and micro allowances as a means of concluding a "political-social alliance" with an undefined hostile establishment.

Theories and Typologies of Migration: An Overview
Himani Kaushik

With regard to literature available about international migration and different theorizations, they are not discussed much as they are hindered by the increasing diversification of migration typology. This paper reviews different theories of migration and talks about the need for an interdisciplinary approach to the study of international migration and its theorization. In the paper, the author provides an overview (personalized) of different theories of migration divided into sub-headings and structure. Theories of migration like Historical-structural theory, Push-pull theory, World system theory, Neoclassical theory, Political economy models, Role of network theory and Transnationalism or the 'transnational turn' are briefly discussed. It also points out some future challenges associated with theorization of migration. The study of migration in the global settings is restricted to socioeconomic and political aspects of the process of migration. The potential migrant's life, choices and reasons for relocation should be often discussed in the migration literature. Existential dimensions of migration and relevance of emotional aspect should be included while theorizing migration. Migration is a dynamic process with different dimensions attached to it. This paper is intended as a primer to understand some of the complexities of theorizing migration.

Terror at the Doorstep: The Rising Threat of Al Sunnah wa Jama'ah (ASWJ) Jihadist Insurgency in Mozambique
Frederick Appiah Afriyie and Vincent Ekow Arkorful

In view of the surge in retrogressive activism that has entwined and ensnared Mozambique from the war and postwar years, it becomes apparent that the Southern African country has witnessed monumental hostility in its developmental strides. Of profound and recent importance has been the bursting on to the political scene of the Al Sunnah wa Jama'ah (ASWJ) terrorist sect whose lethal activities are having menacing effects. Employing the qualitative research approach, this study thoroughly examines not only the activities of the ASWJ terrorist group, but also the possible push and pull factors contributing to the congealment of the group in the Republic of Mozambique. The study reveals a confluence of push factors converging around land disputes, citizen-state mistrust and dissatisfaction with land resettlement program. Further, the study exposes a gamut of pull factors, including weak states and porous borders. Study implications, future research possibilities and recommendations are subsequently delineated.

Mabo Case in Australia: Conflicting Approaches
sayd Awawda

After the expansion of the British empire in the 18th century and the establishment of new colonies overseas, the indigenous individuals and their rights constituted a hot topic for the judges and the Common law legal system specialists. The core of this topic was the dilemma of what status indigenous laws and their pre-existing rights should have. Indeed, the indigenous rights became very critical when the indigenous people went to the courts of the Common law itself to seek the help they wanted. In 1992, Mabo case in the Australian High Court was a tremendous event regarding the indigenous rights issue, and there were two main judicial approaches to rule in that case. Brennan J was the father of the first approach, and Dawson J was the father of the other. The author, in this paper, argues that Brennan J's approach is flexible and consistent with the global context, and pays the required attention to the humanitarian aspect of the law. Additionally, Dawson J's approach is rigid and dehumanizing, and restrictively vests the legitimacy only in the Common law principles themselves.

Africa's Development Initiative: The Case of Space Program
Baruna Kumar Behera

International politics is a struggle for power, prestige and influence. Space science and technology has become a perfect instrument in this regard since the beginning of space age in 1957. Africa, the second largest continent of the world, is a late entrant in embracing space program, considering heavy technological challenges and economic investment. Since the 1990s, African countries have been making efforts to realize the utilities of space program by investing in their respective space endeavors. African space industry has been growing at a potential of $7 bn per year. This shows that African space program has enough potential to achieve development and security of Africa in a sustainable way. Formulation and adoption of African space policy and African space strategy is a valid example of this development trend in Africa.
