“That decision may be judged irrational or merely a miscalculation of likely consequences, but it is like many similar ones throughout history in which passion inspired by old hatreds and wounded honor are the cause of dangerous actions.”…

Xi’s Transformational Diplomacy and Strategic Competence

 Recently, one of America’s most influential scholars, Joseph Nye, authored a book on the significance of U.S. presidential leadership in shaping American politics and the global order. Examining presidencies such as those of Roosevelt, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan and Clinton, Nye concluded that presidential leadership could be seen as either transformational or transactional. A transactional leader is a caretaker, a good manager who does not take ambitious initiatives. A transformational leader…

Beijing and Hanoi must sit down and talk

The recent incidents involving China and Vietnam must not give false hopes for these two Asian nations to sit down and give each other a chance of holding a dialogue concerning territorial claims. Recent developments would instead push both parties for a peaceful co-existence in the South China Sea. Beijing and Hanoi must heed to the rule of law for the sake of maintaining peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region.

China shouldn't skip the World Economic Forum in Manila

There are reports that Beijing will skip the World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia to be held 21 – 23 May 2014 in Metro Manila, Philippines.

Unleashing Persephone: China and Europe join forces for a new Ethos of Sustainable Urbanisation

Man as a “political animal” turns to social interaction to organize his/her life, structure his/her well-being and perpetuate the prosperity of his/her family and descendants. The non-familial; macro-unit of this interaction is the Polis.

From Genoa and Venice to London, Paris, New York and Shanghai, cities remain the epicentres of economic, cultural and educational…

Senkaku/Diaoyu Conflict Endangers U.S’s Re-balance to the Asia-Pacific

On the international level, the significance of the relationship between the United States and China is twofold. Firstly, these two nations stand alone as social and political powerhouses and secondly, they heavily depend on each other economically. The United States may have the largest military and economy, but China’s economy continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, most notably serving as the world’s greatest exporter of goods such as electrical machinery and…

Why Asia needs its own version of NATO and soon

It is easy to ignore a seemingly frivolous diplomatic incident in Asia at a time when the world’s attention is firmly invested in the Middle East, which saw the latest edition of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian saga playing out in Gaza last month. Add to that the much-vaunted economic rise of Asia in the past decade, and the Asia-Pacific region barely comes to mind as a potential flashpoint or a threat to international peace and security.



Years of breakneck economic growth in… Continue

Speech Police: The Global Struggle to Govern the Internet, with David Kaye

The original idea of the Internet was for it be a "free speech nirvana," but in 2019, the reality is quite different. Authoritarians spread disinformation and extremists incite hatred, often on the huge, U.S.-based platforms, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. David Kaye, UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion & expression, details the different approaches to these issues in Europe and the United States and looks for solutions in this informed and important talk.

The Anti-Narrative

Among the electorate, especially since the 2016 election, there is a counter-narrative at play regarding the role of the U.S. in international affairs. This "anti-narrative" has two main planks. The first is an across-the-board distrust of the media. The second is the "death of expertise."

The DEA in Honduras: Targeting Corruption in High Places

In Honduras, activists like Edwin Espinal are among the latest victims of a government whose level of corruption has made it incompatible with democratic development. A number of efforts are being made to combat this corruption, however, among them, surprisingly, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). DEA efforts in this regard began in 2012, a year that turned out to be a spectacular failure for the DEA.
