T.Note n.33 (HS series #4)

Jun 27, 2017 T.notes Stefano Ruzza Violence & Security

Among the violent events that have affected – and unfortunately still affect – Uganda, a prominent place is undoubtedly occupied by the insurgency in the northern regions, the key figure of which is the infamous Joseph Kony.

T.note N.29 (ChinaMed series #1)

China and Iran are the modern heirs to two ancient civilizations, a fact that shapes their interactions and colors their leaders’ sense of identity and place in the contemporary world.
