  1. Making Sense of Mindfulness

    The claims for mindfulness are extravagant, with its advocates asserting that it can improve a number of conditions – including anxiety, depression, stress, and even drug addiction – while boosting overall happiness and productivity. Can it really deliver on so many promises?

  2. Russia’s Oligarchs-in-Waiting

    Through a process of brazen nepotism, Russian President Vladimir Putin has nationalized his country's elites, and consolidated his own power. As the better-known children of Russia’s previous generation of oligarchs have steadily left the country, the offspring of Putin’s cronies have taken their place.

  3. China’s Hong Kong at 20

    Negotiations with Chinese officials often turn into prolonged fights for every imaginable concession. But the real problem is that, contrary to what many believe, China's authorities do not always keep their promises, with Hong Kong's experience in the 20 years since the British handover being a case in point.

  7. Confronting Africa’s Water Challenge

    Africa is currently experiencing its worst drought since 1945, especially in Southern Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Northern Nigeria. These fragile areas urgently need help in building resilient systems to ensure access to clean, portable water and effective sanitation facilities for all people.

  8. Colombia’s Libraries of Peace

    Since concluding a landmark peace agreement with the FARC last year, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has shown visionary leadership in engaging with formerly guerrilla-controlled areas. One example is his government’s commitment to making mobile public libraries available to previously isolated, under-educated communities.
