What it means to be an educated person?

I like this thought: "Only educated are free". (Epictetus)

Education is not about indocrination or unification of thinking.

Education opens our minds, forces us to search for truth, work with different ideas critically.

I think that an educated person is free from prejudices and imposed…

The Kurds decision, foreign policy key to Trump’s impeachment

If there is one thing that Donald Trump does not need exactly at this point in the impeachment inquiry is to alienate US Republican Senators.

But giving way to Turkey's President Erdogan and dropping the Kurds might cost Trump the impeachment battle.

Here, Trump simply miscalculated. His move to “bring the troops back home” from Syria by dumping the Kurds backfired…

My journey throughout Diplomacy, Academics, and NGOs

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…

Diaspora’s impact in defusing the pressures of civilizational tectonics

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…

Where You Were Friends During June 4 "Incident"?

If I ask you that you flashback your memory to June 4,1989,do press on your cerebral card what you you were doing and which part of India,China or world you were.

ZAMBIAN ECONOMICAL CHALLENGES

Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reports from the Berlin meetings of the Losiach Group, a U.S.-German strategic dialogue, where the trans-Atlantic relationship and the rise of China are important points of discussion. Could countering China be the basis of a new Euro-American conneciton?

The Ethics of Gene Editing & Human Enhancement, with Julian Savulescu

What does "good ethics" means when it comes to gene editing? What types of conversations should we be having about this technology? Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, shares his thoughts on these topics and more, including moral and human enhancement, and why he called Dr. He Jiankui's experiment "monstrous."

Vox Populi, Eurasia Group Foundation, and Narratives

The Eurasia Group Foundation (EGF) has released its report on public attitudes towards U.S. foreign policy. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that, like the project on U.S. Global Engagement at the Carnegie Council, EGF is attempting to get at the twin issues of "the chasm which exists between the interests and concerns of foreign policy elites and those of ordinary citizens" and "the reasons why Americans are increasingly disenfranchised from foreign policy decisions being made in Washington."
