The Japanese White Paper on North Korea

The recent Japanese Defense White Paper warns of threats from North Korea arising from Pyongyang’s continued missile tests. 20 rounds of tests meant that the Kim Jong Un regime fired more missiles than his father’s regime did (an estimated 16 missiles in total) in 18 years.

Is America Losing the Soft Power Contest in Southeast Asia?

Pakistan’s Efforts in Mainstreaming Minorities

In Pakistan, there have been very few efforts to address the continuous betrayal of the underprivileged segments of society. The current government is trying to mainstream minorities, and even that takes few bold steps in the age of social media and ripening sectarianism.

Chinese Students Enrich Western Universities in More Ways Than One

In a New York Times op-ed, China expert Merriden Varrall accused Chinese students of “importing a pro-Beijing approach … that is stifling debate and openness.” The article is symptomatic of a rising moral panic in Australia about the political activities of Chinese students.

The China-US Maritime “Spying” Debate
