Общественото мнение има право на строг контрол върху действията и бездействията на управляващите - независимо дали става дума за садистично убийство, претупан ремонт на централна градска част или продажба на огромен ТЕЦ за 3500 лева плюс бонус 30 милиона "студен резерв". Отблъскващи са истеричните реакции...

Либерали срещу консерватори или гражданинът срещу "народа"

 

Година: 2018


Огнян Минчев


За Орбан ли си, сине майчин, или против него? А-а, значи си либерал – или не, значи си „консерва“. Ей такива ми ти повторения на „Бай Ганьо у Иречека“ се случиха по нашенско след като ЕП гласува резолюция срещу унгарския премиер и управлението на неговия кабинет. Впрочем, най-голям бой отнасят тези, които се опитват да заемат позиция „ем тъй – ем тъй“… Не желаят да подкрепят нито европейските левичари, нито десните популисти, Орбан включително...

„Политиката на идентичността“ и нарастващото глобално неравенство

 

Година: 2018

 

Огнян Минчев

 

„Политиката на идентичността“ – както отляво, така и отдясно – произвежда мощен ефект за прикриване на динамично нарастващите неравенства между хората в повечето общества на съвременния свят. През 70-те – 80-те години на 20 век на Запад се осъществи неоконсервативната революция срещу социалната държава и нейната преразпределителна функция в националните общества. Динамиката на неоконсервативната революция...

Reading After Europe …

 

Year: 2017

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

Why did the refugee crisis change Europe in a drastic way? Why do European citizens experience strong dislike and distrust of meritocratic elites? And why is the new revolution the revolution of the fleeing, of the migrating man? These three questions are asked by Ivan Krastev in the preface to his book After Europe...

Огнян Минчев

 

Защо бежанската криза промени Европа по драстичен начин? Защо гражданите на Европа изпитват силна неприязън и недоверие към меритократичните елити? И защо новата революция е революцията на бягащия - на мигриращия човек? Тези три въпроса си задава Иван Кръстев в предговора на своята книга "След Европа"...

Borisov and his center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party...

The Western Balkans in 2010/11: Departures in Democratisation and European Integration in Europe′s Southeast

 

Year: 2012

 

Ognyan Minchev, Goran Stojkovski, Stefan Ralchev

 

[...] the term "Western Balkans" may have started to lose its relevance after the developments in the region in 2010/11. The countries which comprise the region have conspicuously diverged in their level of democratisation and EU integration processes. The term was invented by the international community on the turn of the century (late 1990s – early 2000s) in order to define the scope...

Year: 2010

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

In policy strategic terms the Black Sea region shaped up in the 1990s as a consequence of two major international developments. The first one is the collapse of the Soviet empire and the powerful wave of democratization, which restored independence and sovereignty of Central and South-Eastern European nations...

Черноморският регион: Стратегически баланс и политики

 

Година: 2010

 

Д-р Огнян Минчев

 

В стратегическо и политическо отношение Черноморкият регион се оформи през 90-те години на миналия век като следствие от два ключови процеса на международната сцена. Първият е разпадането на Съветската империя и мощната вълна на демократизация, която върна независимостта и суверенитета на държавите от Централна и Югоизточна Европа...

Security in the Black Sea Region

 

Year: 2010

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

The security infrastructure of the Black Sea is dominated by its status of a border region. At least two important borders cross the Black Sea region: first, the border between the Euro-Atlantic security system and the Russian infrastructure of security, extending well beyond the borders of the Russian Federation; second, the Black Sea is part...

Сигурност в Черноморския регион

 

Година: 2010

 

Д-р Огнян Минчев

 

Инфраструктурата на сигурността в Черно море се определя от статута му на граничен район. Най-малко две важни граници пресичат Черноморския регион: първо, границата между Евроатлантическата система за сигурност и руската инфраструктура на сигурност, която се простира далеч извън границите на Руската федерация; второ, Черно море е част от границата...

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

In policy terms the Black Sea region has shaped up after the end of the Soviet system, and under the influence of three major dimensions of change.

Obama′s First Year in Office & the Challenges of a Changing World

 

Year: 2010

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

The fatigue and anger accumulated against Bush′s administration, the Afro-American background of Barack Obama and the obvious need for dynamic change in American politics created euphoric super-expectations personified by Obama himself. The wave of super-expectations, however, could not endow him with the resources to solve the problems that he inherited...

Етно-корпоративният модел на Ахмед Доган и кризата на българската държава

 

Година: 2009

 

Д-р Огнян Минчев

 

Реакциите  на последните предизборни откровения на Ахмед Доган сред българската общественост са любопитна смесица от мазохизъм и лицемерие. Възмущението от наглостта на “дръндарския шейх” прикрива тъжната истина, че съвършено неприемливите практики във властта на Движението за права и свободи (ДПС) и неговия лидер...

Бразилия или нашето второ откриване на Америка

Д-р Огнян Минчев

 

Нашето откриване на Южна Америка започва с полета на ТАР – португалските авиолинии – от Лисабон за Рио де Жанейро. Един дълъг полет, който – както обикновено – е твърде неудобен за мен. Слава Богу намирам две празни места едно до друго и заемам място и половина...

Europe and the Western Balkans: The Day After Kosovo′s Independence

 

Year: 2008

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

The independence of Kosovo was largely assumed to become the final act of the 15 years long Balkan drama, which started in the early 1990s with the wars among former Yugoslav republican entities, breaking the federation in favor of newly created nation states. The Dayton peace accord of 1995 was the first decisive step...

Between Two Eras

 

Year: 2008

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

The collapse of the financial markets, Barack Obama’s election as US president, the energy crisis – everything around us indicates that we are on the cusp of a new era. How we define and assess the achievements of the recent past will largely determine our view of the world as we face the challenges of our future. And so the forces of the past are actively trying to take over the debate on the future...

Reconfiguring the Serb Political Situation after the Independence of Kosovo

 

Year: 2008

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

The Declaration of Kosovo’s independence has brought organized radicalization in parts of the Serb public. I do not refer to the local Kosovo Serbs, living in the northern city of Mitrovica and in other Serb enclaves of Kosovo, but to the public in Serbia proper. The clashes in the streets of Belgrade...

Сред всички европейски страни, България първа и най-силно ще изпита последствията от присъединяването на Турция към ЕС.

Major Interests and Strategies for the Black Sea Region

 

Year: 2006

 

Dr. Ognyan Minchev

 

There are three groups of basic interests, represented in the Black Sea region of today. First, we have the interests of the West, divided quite explicitly between the US and the positions of the major continental European countries. Both Washington and the EU powers pursue strategies for change and transformation of the region...

Three major types of initiatives might provoke change in the uncertain and controversial environment of the region.

The Decade of Roma Inclusion - Affirmative Action in the New Europe?

This article was set off by the recently launched Decade of Roma Inclusion, and especially by the claims that it is to mark a new stage of Roma politics in Europe. But how innovative and timely is this initiative? Is it a policy augmentation or just cultivation of a new political domain? The initiative proclaimed seems...

Integrating the post-Soviet countries of the Black Sea and the South Caucasus into the Euro-Atlantic security system requires an organized and systemic effort on behalf of the Euro-Atlantic community. It is hardly reasonable to expect a fast, successful democratization and modernization of those countries, leveling within a decade their record of transition to the standards...
