IS IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY?

NAME: ILECHUKWU SUCCESS. NAME OF SCHOOL: CEDEC INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL. HIGH SCHOOL TOPIC: IS IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY?

This is a question everyone has different opinions/ideas about. Well, in my opinion, it is really important to live in democracy. However, democracy is the government practiced by the people or by members of a state through the elected leaders.

Globalisation Effects on the Irish language and Identity

There is no denying it that globalisation has affected our world in more ways than one. This can be seen in the way we do business and the way we communicate as normal people are being exposed to new cultural ideas from countries that were once far away, but now seem as close as ever because of air travel and mass communications. While globalisation can be regarded as the process of international integration involving businesses or organizations, this interchange…

Is it important to live in a democracy?

In the last election in Ghana, I stayed up all night glued to the television as ballot papers were counted and compiled. The excitement that heralded the announcement of the election result was palpable in my town and in every corner groups of people huddled together to discuss the possible outcome. When the results were finally announced, I was awed when I found out that the candidate I had cast my vote for was victorious. I paused to think about what had just happened; my single vote had…

Is it important to live in a Democracy? It depends.

Democracy -- rule by the people -- is strongly tied to human flourishing. Rule by the people results in a myriad of different government structures, but the underlying principle remains fixed: the opportunity of the governed to participate in the selection and decision-making of the governing. No two democracies are identical, but they all possess some degree of participation. Many regard democratic governance as end point of the evolution of government. Case…

Ethics & the U.S.-China Trade War, with Nikolas Gvosdev

What role should ethics play in the U.S.-China trade war? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these economic tensions in the context of the Uyghur detention and the Hong Kong protests, different theories on integrating China into the world economy, and what it could mean to "lose" in this conflict. Is there a breaking point in terms of China's human rights policies? What's the view in Africa and Europe?

Ethical Considerations in a Trade War with China

Are there ethical considerations that need to be factored in as part of assessing the merits of a "trade war" with the People's Republic of China?

Beyond Trump

Some countries are now coming to the same conclusions reached by the U.S. Global Engagement program: the 2016 election was not a "blip," but represents a break with the past. "In other words, no foreign government should bank on getting a better shake post-Trump."
