Why should we care about #occupygezi? Part 2


A friend in Istanbul wrote this, I'm sadly sharing her message: "Reporting from İstanbul, Turkey: We are under attack. We get sprayed with pepper gas on a weekly basis. We have been allowed alcohol in our homes but not outside. Kissing and hugging not allowed. However we are strongly encouraged to breed and make 3 kids right after marriage. Women taking pregnancy tests are recorded. Morning after pills are prescription drugs now. Breathing optional on pulmonary capacity as they are destroying 2 million trees for a third bridge over the Bosphorus"http://postwoman.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/why-should-we-care-about-...

Ethics & the U.S.-China Trade War, with Nikolas Gvosdev

What role should ethics play in the U.S.-China trade war? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these economic tensions in the context of the Uyghur detention and the Hong Kong protests, different theories on integrating China into the world economy, and what it could mean to "lose" in this conflict. Is there a breaking point in terms of China's human rights policies? What's the view in Africa and Europe?

Ethical Considerations in a Trade War with China

Are there ethical considerations that need to be factored in as part of assessing the merits of a "trade war" with the People's Republic of China?

Beyond Trump

Some countries are now coming to the same conclusions reached by the U.S. Global Engagement program: the 2016 election was not a "blip," but represents a break with the past. "In other words, no foreign government should bank on getting a better shake post-Trump."
