IS NATIONALISM AN ASSET OR HINDRANCE IN TODAY’S GLOBALIZED WORLD? #essaycontest2016.

IS NATIONALISM AN ASSET OR HINDRANCE IN TODAY’S GLOBALIZED WORLD?

As long as there is an existence of race, religion, culture, nation, etc, people will always have growing instinct that craves for nationality. The feeling of self-worth prompts every member of a society to see themselves as equal partners in pleasure and regards, in justice and humiliation. In their feelings of nationality with the romance of patriotism, there grows a political ideology which is called…

TWC2 Orientation

I attended TWC2's orientation on 8th November. Transient Workers Count Too is a non-profit organisation in Singapore which aims at helping foreign workers, a silent community most Singaporeans unheard of. Though TWC2 is legal and licensed, it does not receive much support from Singapore government.

#Cybepeacefare #Democracy #Abe Lincoln

"A majority held in restraint by constitutional checks and limitations, and always changing easily with changes of popular opinions and sentiments, is the only true sovereign of a free people." Abraham Lincoln

(This is especially true when the popular vote favors the sentiments of the majority of the people versus the electoral college, which in my opinion, favors a "rigged democratic system" ?  Any comments ?).

NATIONALISM: A GOOD FORCE THAT HAS BEEN MISUSED AGAINST GLOBALISATION.

Tinka George William

Makerere University, College of Health Sciences, Uganda

Undergraduate student

Nationalism is the idea of supporting one’s country and, or culture. It is what reinforces the fact that one belongs to one country and the other to another country, because to belong to one country requires that one holds at heart the elements of nationalism with respect to that one country or to a specific tribe in that one country. In many countries, there are two kinds…

Is nationalism an asset or hindrance in today's globalized world?

I think in terms of general nationalism we can agree that America is very big on nationalism. It’s evident in the American flags that adorn many porches in your average quite suburban neighborhoods.  The stickers on their vehicles…

CHRISTIAN HARBULOT AND THE CREATION OF “ECONOMIC INTELLIGENCE”IN FRANCE

This article deals with the cultural development and general perception of the concept of "intelligence" and "economic intelligence" in France. After the Cold War, finance and markets assumed a greater importance in determining the relations between countries; however, it took a long time for the French elite to be convinced of the existence of “economic warfare” and to define a culture of its own in the field of intelligence. Still, when all the international analyses were strongly related…

Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time, with David Miliband

Today there are 65 million people who have fled their homes because of conflict or persecution, says the International Rescue Committee's David Miliband. These are refugees not economic migrants, and half of them are children. It's a long-term crisis that will last our lifetimes. Why should we care? And what can we do about it, both at a policy level and as individuals?

Clip of the Month: Winning the Argument on Immigration with David Miliband

As president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), David Miliband oversees both the agency's humanitarian relief operations and its refugee resettlement and assistance programs in several American cities. Although he was not responsible for the EU’s decisions on refugees or immigrants, during his tenure as the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary from 2007 to 2010, he saw how his government responded to an unexpectedly large influx of European workers and the resulting impact on British society. In this clip, Miliband draws on both of these roles and explains why he is confident that Europeans and Americans can be convinced that immigration, in all of its forms, can be positive, economically and culturally. In any case, he says, it’s an argument that "has to be won."

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.
