Special Report: Leadership Transitions in 2012
Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013
2012 was a year of critical leadership transitions. Familiar faces who stayed on or returned to the scene -- as in the U.S., Russia and Japan -- were joined by new leaders in China, South Korea, France and Mexico. Elsewhere, transitions are incomplete, with question marks hanging over countries such as Venezuela and Ethiopia. This World Politics Review special report examines the world's new and returning leaders through articles published in the past year.
