The region of Xinjiang, where ethnic tensions between China's majority Han Chinese and minority Uyghur Muslims have at times erupted into violence, has been a sensitive topic across Chinese social media ever since riots shook the regional capital Urumqi back in the summer of 2009.

Recently, a new song titled “What Has Xinjiang Done to You?” has broken the silence and triggered discussion about stereotypes and inter-cultural misunderstandings on China's Twitter-like Weibo platform. The song is written by Liu Shuang (Weibo screen name: “Call me Mr. Leon”)

In June 2014, Jim Strong and Allen Grolla, laboratory scientists from the Public Health Agency of Canada, were deployed through the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) to work with WHO in Guinea and Sierra Leone.
"Nobody really predicted the fact that the outbreak was already widespread and that we were well behind the curve. Anxiety levels really started to escalate in late June and July, however, when it became apparent that there were many cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone."

Les processus de globalisation affectent et entrelacent les relations et les institutions économiques, sociales, politiques et culturelles dans les champs international, national et local, devenant ainsi source de conflits.

Throughout the Ukraine crisis, the West has been surprised at the brutality of Russia's reaction. It has also been surprised by the broad support for Vladimir Putin's policy among the country’s elites and the population at large (88% of whom back the policy), despite the impact of sanctions and countermeasures that are contributing to the deterioration of the country's economy. This level of support cannot be attributed solely to Russia's propaganda machine, though it has been exerting unprecedented influence since early 2014.
Russia is using its discourse on the West's behavior as a tool with which to justify the tightening of its foreign policy. While this is undoubtedly a factor, it conceals three profound changes in Russia and in the nature of its political regime that have led to a tougher policy: an extreme concentration of power at the highest level, a failure to diversify the economy and modernize post-Soviet Russia, and the destabilization of society.

This small nation on the Horn of Africa is now a confluence of streams of refugees coming from opposite directions, desperately trying to escape violence, poverty and hopelessness. Yet, as the numbers grow, Djibouti is struggling to cope. It is powerless to stem the human tide and is seeking assistance from the international community.
