Afghanistan: Packing the Bags but Where to Go?

On my first trip to Afghanistan which I had, so far, researched from distance, both the urgency of negotiations and the deteriorating security situation were palpable. One’s stay in Kabul is enough for one to realize that peace and stability are still a far cry for this country.

Why the EU is not a Major Security Player in Southeast Asia

Taiwan Midterm Elections: Hints for the 2020 Presidential Election?

Some celebrated the functioning democracy in Taiwan, the only Chinese society in the world to be practising liberal democracy. For some, the election results represented possibilities for retooling relations with Beijing, but others fear this would send the wrong signals to Beijing.

India-Pakistan Trade and the China Factor

The Kartarpur Corridor would not just provide opportunity to Sikh pilgrims to pay obeisance at one of their holiest shrines, but could also give a fillip to economic linkages between both Punjabs. China was supportive of the initiative.

Hong Kong in China: Rethinking the Hong Kong-Mainland Relationship (Part 3)

As Hong Kong orients itself towards the future, it needs to reinvigorate its collective consciousness. Its people must find the courage to admit to a new reality in its relations with the People’s Republic and find the voice to weave a new strategy and story that make sense.

Is India Recalibrating its Afghan Policy?

It would certainly seem so. After years, nay decades, of refusal to talk to the Taliban, India sent its representatives to Moscow on November 9, 2018 to finally sit at the same table as the representatives of the militant organization at the “Moscow format.”
