Time, Talent, Treasure: Revisiting Developmental Partnerships Between the Philippines and the USA

Time, Talent, Treasure: Revisiting Developmental Partnerships Between the Philippines and the USA

Out of acts of goodwill came the perpetuation of the long standing stereotypical images of the prosperous and the impoverished. There is no doubt that the development sector has played a significant role in the world today, especially as globalization has brought countries closer together to collaborate on programs that benefit the most vulnerable in society. These…

This Is How You Lose: Against Political Pressure by Militarism

The story is familiar: US sees Asia as a strategic region for reinforcing its military hegemony, prompting its “pivot to Asia” policy. China views the US as a competitor for regional dominance. Long-time American allies Japan and South Korea see the US as a deterrent to possible Chinese coercion. Southeast Asian nations do not take explicit sides but opt to use the great power rivalry as a hedge against dominance by either power. We hear debates about US responsibilities to allies,…

Senkaku/Diaoyu Conflict Endangers U.S’s Re-balance to the Asia-Pacific

On the international level, the significance of the relationship between the United States and China is twofold. Firstly, these two nations stand alone as social and political powerhouses and secondly, they heavily depend on each other economically. The United States may have the largest military and economy, but China’s economy continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, most notably serving as the world’s greatest exporter of goods such as electrical machinery and…

Two Faces of Economic Development: The Ethical Controversy Surrounding U.S.-Related Sweatshops in Developing Asian Countries

Many aspects of the average American’s material lifestyle can be attributed to trade relations between the United States and Asia. A significant proportion of the clothes they wear, the toys they grew up with, and even the technology they use, was produced somewhere in Asia.

The Ethical Challenge in Sino-U.S. Relations: The Threat of War

The Ethical Challenge in Sino-U.S. Relations: The Threat of War

 

The greatest ethical challenge confronting the U.S. and China is that in both countries, decision-makers are increasingly scoping out foreign policy strategies that will inevitably lead to military conflict. On the U.S. side, decision-makers often look for military solutions to what are really political problems. They consider geopolitics, and in fact fall back on geopolitical fatalism, in…

The Ethical Implications of Soft Power: Reexamining the Peace Corps in Southeast Asia

As we enter Obama's second term, U.S. state-funded international volunteer programs pose the greatest ethical challenge in U.S.-ASEAN relations. Many of these programs that promote Western ideals and reaffirm U.S. power through peace-oriented development programs, have been in existence for decades. One example, the Peace Corps, was established in the wake of the Cold War, to exert U.S. soft power upon the world through cultural exchange programs. Thus, these programs have served…

Islamaphobia: a misconception for decades

North Korean Gulags: And Yet,

If the prison camps of Auschwitz were still running in full operation today, would the entire global community collectively stand by and allow them to continue? One would think not. And yet, here we stand today. Even while the bellicose and belligerent regime of North Korea once again commands the world stage through its threats and showmanship, still the issue of its extensive system of concentration camps slips through the gaps of the world’s attention. Through the testimonies of escapees…

The U.S., China, and Cybersecurity: The Ethical Underpinnings of a Controversial Geopolitical Issue

The rise of Asia is one of the most significant developments in the twenty-first century geopolitical landscape.  Pundits who dubbed the twentieth century the “American Century” are now predicting that the twenty-first century will be the “Pacific Century.”  Asia’s ascendance is driven in large part by the return of China, whose economic and political might has been growing at unprecedented speeds, to a position of international prominence.  China’s re-emergence as a significant global…

The Great Hypocrisy: Clarifying U.S.-China relations

Between the United States of America (U.S.) and the People’s Republic of China, many people have preconceived notions about the ethical standards that each of these countries uphold. However, it is important to move away from thinking about these countries individually, because the world that we live in today is interconnected and these complex associations can often be invisible. Since no country exists in complete isolation, it is imperative for…

Why Corporate Social Responsibility is the Greatest Ethical Challenge to U.S.-China Relations

Is the sole responsibility of a corporation to maximize profit, in turn increasing the wealth and income of shareholders, or must companies acknowledge and address ethical and societal concerns caused by their operations? Milton Friedman argued in his book, Capitalism and Freedom, that corporations were only mechanisms for deriving profit. His ideologies laid the primitive foundation for corporate action in relation to society. However, corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) is gaining…
