On June 29th, 2015, Greece's failure to requite €1.73 billion to the IMF made it the first European nation to join the list of countries that have defaulted on IMF loans; a register that includes pariah states,…

Romanian Presidential elections: towards a broader national identity

David defeated Goliath in the recent Romanian presidential elections which centered on living standards, corruption, and the degree of Western orientation in a troubled region. The voting was a spectacular proof of solidarity between Romanians living abroad and the country’s urban electorate shaping political outcomes in their country.

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.

Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
