Description
Italy will hold its next general election no later than spring 2018, with Beppe Grillo's Five Star Movement (M5S) currently ahead in most of the recent polling. Daniele Albertazzi argues that despite intense media speculation about what a victory for the M5S could mean for Italy and its participation in the euro, the picture is far from clear and could be altered substantially by current negotiations over the country's electoral law.

Egypt faces rough times ahead: four points on the recent ISIS attacks

Description
Written by Dr Gerasimos Tsourapas, Lecturer in Middle East Politics. In the most brutal attack against the Egyptian Coptic Christian minority in recent memory, ISIS bombed two churches on 9 April. At least 47 Egyptians were killed in Alexandria and Tanta, a small town in the Nile Delta. ISIS claimed responsibility for planting an explosive device under a seat at Tanta's Saint George's Church and for the suicide bombing at Alexandria's Saint Marks' Coptic Orthodox Cathedral – a few hours later. What does this mean for ISIS, the post-2011 Egypt, and its Coptic community, the largest Christian minority in the Middle East?
