My journey throughout Diplomacy, Academics, and NGOs

Posted by Daniela Segovia Hernández on August 20, 2019 at 8:42pm 0 Comments

I started my path in the international development field during my first year of university, working as an intern at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Venezuela. My experience alongside Colombian refugees in my country opened my eyes to the stark reality of displacement and war. Ironically, my country faces a similar situation nowadays. Venezuelans represent the highest rate of migrants and refugees in the Americas. More than 4 million have left the country since 2016; an exodus comparable to the migrant and refugee crisis caused by the civil war in Syria.

We have a very narrow road where only two vehicles are allowed to pass in two opposite directions. However now, we are noticing that half of the road has been occupied by dirt. As a result of this, drivers violate road safety laws by using the opposite direction. Furthermore, this is the same road that motorcyclists and other moving vehicles use for transportation. At the same time, young children and adults also walk on the road.

One of the most frustrating parts about environmental pollution in our…

Diaspora’s impact in defusing the pressures of civilizational tectonics

Posted by Teodor Stan on July 5, 2019 at 11:26am 0 Comments

On the European continent, the modern Romanian state is the posterchild for undercutting pressures in civilizational tectonics, a picture that Samuel P. Huntington so hauntingly laid out in his post-Cold war portrayal of the “clash of civilizations” thesis. Built at the confluence of Ottoman, Habsburg and Russian Imperial borderlands, Romania’s trifold cultural heterogeneity resonates still and parlays into current social-political divisions and governance expectations.

Conservative estimates approximate between 3 to 5 million the number of Romanians working and living abroad mostly in western European Union (EU) member states. The Romanian diaspora represents an estimated 17% of the country’s remaining population and this diaspora’s…

The End of the U.S.-Taliban Talks? with Jonathan Cristol

Despite progress over the last year, Donald Trump effectively ended the latest round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations with a tweet earlier this month. Will talks continue in a more understated way?
