Eun Soo’s Experience

           “Are you from North Korea or South Korea?” When I was first asked this question as a naïve fourth grader who had just moved to Singapore from Korea, it sounded strange.

RECP, TPP, and Taiwan’s choice

RECP, TPP, and Taiwan’s choice

In Asia, there are two important economic cooperation treaties. One is the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and the other one is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

#Cyberpeacefare #World Affairs/Democracy #Ralph Barton Perry Quote

"Applied to world affairs, democracy means that the aggregate of mankind shall be so organized as to create for each man the maximum opportunity of growth in accordance with the dictates of his own genius and aspiration.

The Future of U.S., Indonesia and Asian Relations? A Foundation of Empathy

Along the interstate in Salt Lake City, United States sits a massive shopping mall replete with all the material comforts one can imagine. Its large electronic billboard flashes through the names of the stores in the mall, but between every few names a simple sign glares at the cars passing along the interstate.

Facial Recognition Technology, Policy, & the Pandemic, with Jameson Spivack

Jameson Spivack, policy associate at Georgetown Law's Center on Privacy and Technology, discusses some of the most pressing policy issues when it comes to facial recognition technology in the United States and the ongoing pandemic.

Facing a Pandemic in the Dark

Over 1 million Rohingya refugees living in crowded, unsanitary conditions in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh could soon be facing their own COVID-19 outbreak.

How can international organizations help?
