The Trump-led Trade War with China: Energy Dominance Self-destructed? – IFRI studies

Under a legal specificity of the United States which considers foreign imports as a « threat to national security », the president Donald Trump imposed quotas or customs rights and launched investigations of national security on a growing number of goods imported to U.S. allies and other countries.

In March and June 2018, the United States imposed tariffs or quotas on steel and aluminium rights to all their trading partners, with the exception of the Australia.

In July and August 2018, the United States began to impose tariffs of $ 50 billion on Chinese industrial products for unfair trade practices.

While China retaliated by adopting countermeasures, the president Trump imposed tariffs on $ 200 billion of Chinese products from September 24, 2018.

Sign of an unprecedented escalation, he also threatened to impose additional customs duties on 267 billion dollars worth of Chinese products.

If that were the case, most of Chinese products entering the United States may be subject to customs duties. China has retaliated and imposed customs duties on American goods $ 60 billion, including a duty of 10% on natural gas liquefied (LNG)


Nepalese Civil War

The Nepalese Civil War was an armed conflict between the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) and the government of Nepal, fought from 1996 to 2006. The rebellion was launched by the CPN-M on 13 February 1996 with the main aim of overthrowing the Nepalese monarchy and establishing a People’s Republic. It ended with the Comprehensive Peace Accord signed on 21 November 2006.

This article traces the path of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist ascent to power from the start of Nepal’s 1996-2006 civil war to its end. In the pattern of several other movements inspired by the success of Mao’s 1948 take-over of the Chinese state, the Maoists of Nepal tactically fought their war in stages, consisting of creation, expansion, and consolidation. Re-examining the lifecycle of Nepal’s Civil War in this context allows us to better understand: the course of events and the timing of significant episodes; the decisions that Maoist leadership made; and what techniques the Maoists used in order to make in-roads during each phase of the conflict.
