 Hajer Sadiq Mousa UK’S FOREIGN POLICY AFTER BREXIT Abstract For the UK’s foreign policy, the vote to exit the European Union (EU) has had significant repercussions. The UK has been driven by Brexit to revaluate its relationships with important allies and to think about its place in the global order. This thesis gives a broad picture of the UK’s foreign policy following Brexit, highlighting the main difficulties and opportunities the country will encounter. The study looks at how Brexit will affect the UK’s connections with the EU, the US, and other important allies, as well as any possible repercussions on security, trade, and international cooperation. The thesis argues that Brexit has significantly increased the degree of complexity and uncertainty in the UK’s foreign policy, but it has also given the UK an opportunity to redefine its place in the global system and adopt a more adaptable and flexible foreign policy strategy. The research underlines the importance of the UK developing a clear and cogent foreign policy plan in the post-Brexit era as well as engaging effectively with its partners. Key Words: Brexit, The United Kingdom, The European Union, foreign policy
SAHAND MAGHDID ILYAS The Impact of Russian Gas Exportation on Europe after the Cold War Basiru Musa Abstract The major focus of my study project is how Russia influences Europe through its natural gas exports. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia has had a wide range of impacts on the global economy, politics, and culture. As the communist ideology spread throughout the nation and as Russia’s political, cultural, and economic advancements reinforced the nation, Yevgeny Primakov was able to build a new philosophy for the nation. Putin could make more improvements to these stages. Putin is unique among presidents and world leaders in that he emphasizes energy exports more than others, especially gas and oil. We may contend that gasoline significantly affects the globe as a whole, particularly Europe, where the requirement for gasoline is greater due to the continent’s often frigid environment. Europe needs more gas to keep its businesses running since the availability of gas is restricted. This creates a larger possibility for the Russian government in order to export additional gas which renders Europe reliant to exportation of natural gas. The dispute began with the fact that if interactions between Russia and Europe decrease, this is certain to have an effect on gas exports to the region, which will naturally harm Europe since there aren’t many or reliable channels for doing so and Russian gas is less expensive than gas from other sources, like American sources, and Russian channels are also close to Europe. There might be a variety of problems brought on by a decrease in Russian gas shipments to Europe, including cold weather and businesses that would be unable to function due to a lack of gas, both of which would have a detrimental economic effect. Europe needs to start using more renewable energy. Additionally, the use of renewable energy requires significant network investments. It is necessary to link every turbine or solar energy system to the electrical grid, which obviously requires many more wires than a single enormous coal- or gas-fired power station. However, over time, the financial savings from not purchasing fuel on a regular schedule might be realized if the facility is in place where only servicing is required.
Shazad Sameea Omar TERRORISM: A CASE STUDY OF ISIS IN IRAQ Basiru Musa ABSTRACT Terrorism is an act of violence intended to create fear and alarm, typically targeting civilians. It is often used as a political tool to achieve an ideological or religious goal, such as independence or the imposition of a specific form of government. Terrorist acts are often performed by small groups of highly trained individuals who carry out specific acts of violence for a predetermined purpose. ISIS, which started in 2014 is the subject of this case study, which also looks at the factors that led to their creation, their methods and strategies, and the effects of their deeds on Iraqi society. To give a thorough examination of the group’s actions in Iraq, the research consults a variety of sources, including news stories, scholarly papers, and official reports using a qualitative analytical method. According to the findings, a variety of variables, such as sectarian strife, political unrest, and the aftermath of the US-led invasion, contributed to the rise of ISIS in Iraq. The group used a variety of strategies, including suicide bombers, targeted killings, and the use of social media for members’ recruitment and radicalization. These strategies aided in the extensive bloodshed, upheaval, and breaches of human rights that occurred in Iraq. Overall, this case study illuminates the nature of terrorism in the twenty-first century and emphasizes the need for addressing the underlying factors that give rise to violent extremism to curtail its growth. It is also found that ISIS is a unique instance of a radical organization created by the confluence of psychological requirements, an ideological story, and a networking mechanism. The study recommends that the right policies should be continuously made to ensure that ISIS never returns and those affected should be rehabilitated and the security agencies should be adequately equipped and motivated. Keywords: Terrorism, ISIS, Iraq, Regional Security

The reason behind rising those two events, their weak and strong points, points that would make those revolutions more influential for the Kurdish people, are among the points that this work covers. Certain points in regards to those revolutions could have been better for Kurdish society. For instance, the external interference of other powerful states on those revolutions had its impact on leaders that changed the direction of revolutions; most of the Kurdish neighboring states were enemy of those revolutions.
