Diplomatic Courier Looks at Asia and Ponders the Likelihood of a

“Latin America Decade”

WASHINGTON, DC: In most of today’s conversations on emerging economies and regions to dominate the international arena, Asia is on the tip of the tongue. In Volume 7, Issue 3 of the journalzine, the Diplomatic Courier discusses the possibility of the next ten years belonging to the Southwest Hemisphere and how the “Latin America Decade” will affect the countries in the Far East.

Feature articles related to Asia include:

  • Cover Story: “The Latin America Decade in Motion,” by Oscar Montealegre, Contributor
  • “How the Chinese Are Helping to Transform Cuba, Again,” by Paul Nash, Contributing Editor
  • “Campaigning on the Front Lines,” by Ryan Gawn, Director of Stratagem International and a Deployable Civilian Expert with the UK Government’s Stabilisation Unit
  • “The End of Polio,” by Judith Rowland, U.S. Campaigns Associate, Global Poverty Project
  • “Sprinting to the Millennium Development Goals Finish Line,” by Mark Leon Goldberg, Managing Editor, Global Affairs Blog UN Dispatch
  • Book Feature: “The Rising Power of the Age of Transparency,” by Frank Vogl, author of the book “Waging War on Corruption-Inside the Movement Fighting the Abuse of Power”

“The articles in this issue are applicable the world over. From trying to eradicate the final remnants of polio to ensuring fair elections, the narrative resonates equally well in Pakistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In this next decade, global leaders will need to divide their attention between the rise of China and the growth of Latin America,” says Ana C. Rold, Editor-in-Chief, Diplomatic Courier.

Also in this issue, the Diplomatic Courier publishes special pieces on:

  • “The Americas: A More Politically Stable and Prosperous Hemisphere,” by Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General, Organization of American States
  • Rule of Law: Q&A with Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
  • Interview with Dr. Gustavo Gaviria Angel, Member of the Board of Directors of the Sustainable Food Pavilion at World Expo Milano 2015, Milan Italy
  • Gallery of Moments: “Latin American Portraits,” by Sebastian Rich
