Ahead of the 2014 NATO Summit: financing the energy security shift

When in October 2011 a group of 285 global institutional investors representing more than $20 trillion in assets under management issued a statement, the message was clear: private investors need the signal and the incentives for alternative energy investment from policy makers. The statement underlined the urgent need for policy action, which stimulates private sector investment in alternative energy…

Thucydides on Civil War and Syria

Last year, in the very first class of contemporary International Relations theory in Tsinghua university - one of China’s most elite universities – the Ivy league educated instructor spent the lecture examining Thucydides not only as the father of the Realist school of international relations but as one of the most important theorists on war and peace and on human’s political behavior.

Thucydides has indeed inspired some of the world’s brightest intellectuals who have spent years and…

Ecoethical Relections on Climate Crisis and Sustainability Issue

Having gone through the articles of Samantha Sherman and Ernel Saligumba on Eco Politics: Blood and Trees and A Leader of Conservation; it will not be incorrect to say that climate change has commanded increasing attention in recent times especially in developed and developing economies but  much of my focus will be on sub-Saharan Africa due to the geographical location, the poor cultural attitudes to environment and the shortage of resources to support the adaptation to…

What to remember in Syria from the Iraq sectarian war

Last week, in a effort to reassure a skeptical American public,  President Obama declared that a U.S. intervention in Syria, currently in debate in the Congress, would not be the same as the ones in…

Eco-Politics: Blood & Trees

Deforestation is well-known to most as a critical ecological problem. Nowadays, even an elementary schooler has probably been taught that the rainforests are shrinking. If asked how to solve the problem, people of all ages would likely rack their brains to think of “go green” solutions like recycling or planting trees in the park. But few would think of halting the import of timber from conflict-stricken countries as a potential environmentally friendly solution. What’s war got to do with…

What Does Conservation mean?

The spirit of conservation is neither tedious nor arduous to follow; however, people nowadays are just ignoring the natural resources rather than the goods they can take from it. How can we dodge the possible sequel that may happen due to the rambunctious deeds of human? It is said, “What you plant is what you reap”, thus, if our nurturing mother earth suffers because of us, indeed, we must prepare to sacrifice for whatever we did to her will come back at us.

It is horrible to deem that…

A Leader of Conservation



It can never be denied that we inherit the entire earth from our omnipotent God and will in turn entrust it to our offspring. In order to uphold the beauty and abundance of our mother land, let’s learn to conserve.

Conservation refers to planning and managing the natural resources. Therefore, did you manage and utilize it properly? Hopefully, yes!

One morning, as I entered the school entrance looking around the vicinity, I felt so upset since there was a kind of rubbish…

Why the US should back Bulgarian civil society

The piece appears in full on the London School of Economics Blog, 4 Sept 2013.

When in 2011 Russia’s President Vladimir Putin announced his idea for an intergovernmental organization called the Eurasian Union, few in Bulgaria thought the idea could pose a threat to democracy and Bulgaria’s Western orientation. Few took seriously Russia’s Ambassador to NATO who, back in 2008, notoriously described Bulgaria as…

Living With Differences

In Goreme, Turkey I found myself wandering the streets in the middle of the day. There was nobody on the streets until an old man approached. Here we were different people from different places, yet we found ourselves together. I pointed at my camera and him, he nodded and stood still for a moment. 

As brief as our interaction was, I could feel goodness, and see…

Behind the Lens: Natural Curiosity

While in Kenya, I was able to play with local school children.  They took my camera (I gave it willingly) and snapped some amazing shots.

It's true that yes, there are obvious cultural differences between children in Kenya and children in the US and much of the Western world.  But it's also true that what makes a child a child isn't the differences we've built…

Our Clothes Connection: Educational Pursuits in Kenya

 

On a recent trip to Kenya, I had the opportunity to meet primary school students living near my campsite.  My initial thought process regarding the impoverished in developing nations was akin to the thoughts much of the general North American public has.  I did myself, and the people I was working to help, a disservice by assuming they were…

Re: On Mixed Marriage Between Chinese and Vetnam

Liu Yixnan, your blog post did interest me a good deal and I could see that your contention is two-fold i.e. the foundation of mixed marriage (as it is being exhibited in China) and the security of mixed marriage. However, I believe that the longevity of any marriage has strong bearing on the motive(s) behind it. When such motives are connected to pecuniary things as you have rightly identified, there is tendency for such marriage to crumble as soon as the pecuniary and material things that…

A Case for Giving Climate Migrants Protected Legal Status

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? Does this change anything on the ground in Afghanistan? And what is the Taliban doing in Moscow? Jonathan Cristol, author of "The United States and the Taliban before and after 9/11," discusses all this and more.
