The centre-left Social Democrats has narrowly edged out the Christian Democratic Union, the party which the current chancellor Angela Merkel had hoped to be the successor.

Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou arrived in home in China at the weekend - marking an end to her nearly three-year US extradition fight. This came as two Canadians held in China for more than 1000 days returned home. They were detained just days after Meng's arrest. While China has previously claimed the arrest and detention of the Canadians was not tied in any way to the proceedings against Meng, experts say this might lead to improved ties between China and the two western allies.

Iceland's new government has more women in power than men for the first time ever, as final results from the national election come in. Voters in Iceland elected 33 women to govern the country, which has been ranked the most gender-equal in the world for 12 years straight by the World Economic Forum. The current government is made up of Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir's Left-Green Movement, the conservative Independence Party and the centrist-agrarian Progressive Party. With the Left-Green Movement losing ground and having eight other parties fighting for the reins, it's unclear who will be handed the mandate to form the next government.

Those old enough will probably remember exactly where they were when they learned of the September 11 terror attack on the World Trade Center. For New Zealanders, it was early in the morning of September 12, when two passenger planes slammed into New York's Twin Towers. Hijackers flew the first plane into the north tower at 8:46am. Seventeen minutes later, a second plane hit the south tower. A third plane flew into the Pentagon in Virginia, and a fourth plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. The coordinated terrorist attack killed almost 3000 people. It was carried by militants from the Islamic extremist group Al Qaeda. At the time its leader Osama bin Laden was being harboured by the Taliban in Afghanistan. The attack on United States soil led to a war in Afghanistan that spanned two decades. On the morning of 9/11, US President George W Bush was at Emma B Booker Elementary school in Florida, to read with students. His Chief of Staff Andy Card was with him. Card would be the man who delivered the world-changing news to the president.

The central Ethiopian government has called a "humanitarian ceasefire" in the region, but critics say that by framing the decision as a humanitarian one the government is attempting to save face. Over the last eight months, the fighting in northern Ethiopia has killed thousands of people, displaced two million and pushed 350,000 to the brink of famine. The conflict began in November when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, ordered a military offensive against regional forces in Tigray in response to an attack on a military base housing government troops.

Philippe Bourbeau, "On Resilience: Genealogy, Logics, and World Politics" (Cambridge UP, 2021)

What does it mean to be resilient in a societal or in an international context? Where does resilience come from? From which discipline was it 'imported' into international relations? If a particular government employs the meaning of resilience to its own benefit, should scholars reject the analytical purchase of the concept of resilience as a whole? Does a government have the monopoly of understanding how resilience is defined and applied? Philippe Bourbeau's book On Resilience: Genealogy, Logics, and World Politics (Cambridge UP, 2021) addresses these questions. Even though resilience in global politics is not new, a major shift is currently happening in how we understand and apply resilience in world politics. Resilience is indeed increasingly theorized, rather than simply employed as a noun; it has left the realm of vocabulary and entered the terrain of concept. This book demonstrates the multiple origins of resilience, traces the diverse expressions of resilience in IR to various historical markers, and propose a theory of resilience in world politics.
