    News, Paritta Wangkiat, Published on 14/06/2018

    » Myanmar's "forgotten war" in Kachin state has received little public attention despite the scale of the impact it has had on people who have become internally displaced and the casualties caused by the fighting between ethnic rebels and the army.

    Black Panther is stylistic substance

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 19/02/2018

    » Having been in a movie black hole of sorts for the past few months, I was completely oblivious to what the movie Black Panther is, when my best friend suggested we go see it. The only thing I knew was that it would be a Marvel movie featuring a cast made up of a majority of African-Americans and Africans. This, of course, is rarer than a blue moon, and was enough to pique my interest. Fine by me. In fact, I would be most intrigued to watch a superhero film where the black guy isn't the sidekick or someone likely to get shot within the first 12 seconds.

    Life without populism

    News, Alan Dawson, Published on 06/05/2018

    » Once upon a time in a land very, very far away with a "government by the people, for the people" there was a plan to fix recalcitrant taxi drivers and make them pick up passengers, politely, and then to reward the drivers with a fare increase. And that plan was carried out in the faraway country, and passengers were happy to reward deserving, hard-working, uncomplaining taxi drivers.

    Australia's turn in the muck of political tribalism

    News, Daniel Moss, Published on 22/02/2018

    » Australians who thought the disruptions that have led many to view North Atlantic politics with disdain wouldn't reach their corner of the world can no longer ignore reality. The urban-rural divide that drove Brexit and the election of Donald Trump is now reverberating closer to home, and it's not a good look.

    Coup against Mugabe is really nothing to celebrate

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 17/11/2017

    » As leader of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe has survived longer than Stalin in the Soviet Union and Mao in China. If it's coming to an end -- which seems likely given his apparent inability to emerge from house arrest after the military took charge -- it's worth reflecting on the mistakes he made to end such a remarkable run.

    Regime builds one-way road to disunity

    News, Atiya Achakulwisut, Published on 29/08/2017

    » Whether what we are witnessing falls along the lines of Great Expectations, The Great Escape or The Great Dictator is probably still up for interpretation.

    Humour best weapon against strongmen

    News, Published on 13/02/2017

    » When Egyptians gathered in Tahrir Square to protest against the regime of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, they brought with them a sense of humour -- a weapon of fun against the guns and tear gas of the military. They carried cartoons, sang parodies and renamed the central garbage heap after one of the president's agencies.

    News, Suthachai Yimprasert, Published on 24/06/2017

    A tale of two bombs -- in Manchester and Bangkok

    News, Gwynne Dyer, Published on 26/05/2017

    » There were two bombs on Monday. The one in Britain killed at least 22 people and injured 120 as they came out of a concert at Manchester Arena. It was carried out by a suicide bomber named Salman Abedi and claimed by the Islamic State (IS). The other was in Thailand, and injured 22 people at a military-linked hospital in Bangkok; nobody has claimed responsibility yet. But what happened afterwards was very different.

    Grave danger in Cambodia

    News, Editorial, Published on 07/09/2017

    » After operating for more than 24 years, the English-language The Cambodia Daily faced its final curtain call this week, with the last edition hitting newsstands on Monday. Observers believe the closure, which stemmed from a tax dispute between the Daily and Prime Minister Hun Sen's government, is a threat to the freedoms of the media in the country.
