International Conflicts and Approaches: Asia and the Middle East - Seymour

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

While the world's attention has recently been focused on trade wars, conflicts in the Middle East, Brexit, and the nuclear nonproliferation issues, the plight and predicament of minorities in many parts of the world go unnoticed and unattended. Although festering for a long time, the political and humanitarian situations of the Uyghurs in China and the Rohingyas in Myanmar have of late become cruel and indefensible crises of varying degrees. In this discussion I will attempt to highlight the main points of these conflicts and what may be some nonviolent international responses to resolve them.
