Political trends 2010s_section_8

International relations 2010s_section_9

China was increasingly called a superpower in the early 2010s, including at the 2011 meeting between President Hu Jintao and United States President Barack Obama. 2010s_sentence_44

China overtook the U.S. as the world's largest trading nation, filing the most patents, expanding its military, landing its lunar rover Yutu on the moon (ending a four-decade lack of lunar exploration) and creating China's Oriental Movie Metropolis as a major film and cultural center. 2010s_sentence_45

China was projected to have the world's largest economy by 2018 with an estimated GDP per capita equal to the U.S. by the late 2050s. 2010s_sentence_46

In 2018, global military spending reached the highest it has been since 1988, late Cold War levels, largely fueled by increased defense spending by China and the United States, whose budgets together accounted for half of the world's total military spending. 2010s_sentence_47

In 2019, the Lowy Institute Asia Power Index, which measures the projections of power in the Indo-Pacific, called both China and the United States the superpowers of the 21st century, citing immense influence in almost all eight indexes of power. 2010s_sentence_48

Along with China, a Vladimir Putin-led Russia also steadily increased its defense spending and continued to modernize its military capabilities throughout the decade, including the development of the T-14 Armata main battle tank and the fifth-generation Sukhoi Su-57 jet fighter. 2010s_sentence_49

Russia also flexed its power projection capabilities, particularly demonstrated during the 2014 annexation of Crimea and its interventions in eastern Ukraine and the Syrian Civil War; Wagner Group had a significant presence in both conflicts. 2010s_sentence_50

Russia also notably waged information warfare campaigns against its geopolitical foes, including interfering in the 2016 U.S. elections via hacking and leaking emails of U.S. political party leadership and by spreading disinformation via the Internet Research Agency. 2010s_sentence_51

Other alleged Russian intelligence operations included the Skripal poisonings and the Montenegrin coup plot, both of which were attributed by some to the Unit 29155 organization. 2010s_sentence_52

Collectively, these activities—and the Western-led efforts to combat the influence of Russian oligarchs and political interests—have been referred to as the Second Cold War. 2010s_sentence_53

The European Union went through several crises. 2010s_sentence_54

The European debt crisis caused severe economic problems to several eurozone member states, most severely Greece. 2010s_sentence_55

The 2015 migration crisis led to several million people entering the EU illegally in a short period of time. 2010s_sentence_56

There was a significant rise in the vote shares of several eurosceptic parties, including the League in Italy, Alternative for Germany, and the Finns Party in Finland. 2010s_sentence_57

As a result of a referendum, the United Kingdom became the first member state in the EU's history to initiate proceedings for leaving the Union. 2010s_sentence_58

Polarization 2010s_section_10

Socio-political polarization increased as conservatives and social liberals clashed over the role and size of government and other social, economic and environmental issues in the West. 2010s_sentence_59

In the United States, polls showed a divided electorate regarding healthcare reform, immigration, gun rights, taxation, job creation, and debt reduction. 2010s_sentence_60

In Europe, movements protesting increasing numbers of refugees from Islamic countries developed, such as the English Defence League and Pegida. 2010s_sentence_61

The trend of polarization in the West was partially influenced by the prevalence of identity politics, both left-wing and right-wing, among activist movements. 2010s_sentence_62

Beginning around 2011, far-left and progressive concepts such as combating social inequality and economic inequality proliferated in the Western world and elsewhere. 2010s_sentence_63

Around the middle of the decade, phenoms such as white nationalism, identitarianism and emboldened feelings of nativism saw a marked reemergence among far-right discourse in the West. 2010s_sentence_64

There were also increased calls for egalitarianism, including between the sexes, and some scholars assert that a fourth wave of feminism began around 2012, with a primary focus on intersectionality. 2010s_sentence_65

Antiestablishment politics 2010s_section_11

Populism in politics saw a widespread surge throughout the decade, with many politicians and various political movements expressing populist sentiments and utilizing populist rhetoric. 2010s_sentence_66

This included conservative wave phenomenon in Latin America and neo-nationalist fervor in Europe and North America. 2010s_sentence_67

The 2019 European Parliament election saw the highest voter turnout in two decades and saw relatively moderate center-right and center-left parties suffer significant losses to less moderate far-right, environmentalist, and both pro-EU and eurosceptic parties, who made notable gains. 2010s_sentence_68

Notable examples of 2010s populist movements included the Tea Party movement, Occupy Wall Street, Brexit, Black Lives Matter, and the alt-right. 2010s_sentence_69

Examples of populist country leaders were just as extensive, with Donald Trump, Narendra Modi, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Hugo Chávez, Matteo Salvini, Jair Bolsonaro, Rodrigo Duterte, Boris Johnson and others, left and right-wing, described as such. 2010s_sentence_70

Related to the rise of populism and protests movements was the decline of traditional political parties. 2010s_sentence_71

In Europe, pasokification described the loss of vote share experienced by traditional center-left or social democratic parties. 2010s_sentence_72

In France, specifically, the collapse of traditional parties was especially notable, with Emmanuel Macron's La République En Marche! 2010s_sentence_73

winning a majority in its first election in 2017. 2010s_sentence_74

Center-left, neoliberal and traditional social democratic parties often lost their vote share to more socialist or democratic socialist alternatives, especially in Europe. 2010s_sentence_75

This happened most completely in Greece, where PASOK was replaced by Syriza as the main left-wing party. 2010s_sentence_76

Other far-left parties which rose in prominence included Podemos in Spain and La France Insoumise in France. 2010s_sentence_77

In the two-party systems of the English-speaking world, these challenges mainly came from within the established parties of the left, with Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party and Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour Party pushing for more left-wing policies. 2010s_sentence_78

The political establishment was also challenged in many countries by protest movements, often organised through new social media platforms. 2010s_sentence_79

These included the various Arab Spring protests, the Occupy movement, and the yellow vests movement. 2010s_sentence_80

Democracy and authoritarianism 2010s_section_12

Countries which democratized fully or partially during the decade included Angola, which reformed under João Lourenço; Armenia, which went through a revolution; Ecuador, which reformed under Lenín Moreno; Ethiopia; and Malaysia, where the ruling party lost the first election since independence. 2010s_sentence_81

Long-term dictators ousted from power included Muammar Gaddafi of Libya (after 42 years), Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe (37 years), Ali Abdullah Saleh of Yemen (33 years), Omar al-Bashir of Sudan (30 years), Hosni Mubarak of Egypt (29 years), and Ben Ali of Tunisia (23 years). 2010s_sentence_82

Democratic backsliding occurred in countries such as Hungary, Venezuela, and Turkey. 2010s_sentence_83

The Arab Winter refers to the resurgence of authoritarianism, absolute monarchies and Islamic extremism evolving in the aftermath of the Arab Spring protests in Arab countries. 2010s_sentence_84

The term "Arab Winter" refers to the events across Arab League countries in the Mid-East and North Africa, including the Syrian Civil War, the Iraqi insurgency and the following civil war, the Egyptian Crisis, the Libyan Crisis and the Crisis in Yemen. 2010s_sentence_85

Events referred to as the Arab Winter include those in Egypt that led to the removal of Mohamed Morsi and the seizure of power by General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in an anti-Muslim Brotherhood campaign. 2010s_sentence_86

In 2018, China's National People's Congress approves a constitutional change that removes term limits for its leaders, granting Xi Jinping the status of "leader for life". 2010s_sentence_87

Xi is the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (de facto leader). 2010s_sentence_88
