BRICS and the Covid-19 vaccine, one more chance missed

REUTERS FILE PHOTO Vaccination for Covid-19 is advancing and the world begins to breathe a sigh of relief, but it hides a much harsher and more unequal reality in the world we live in. Access to vaccines, bem como sua produção, é resultado de relações de poder que só reforçam a desigualdade que existe entre os países. Assim que ficou claro o tamanho do problema com o Covid-19, os países mais ricos iniciaram seus esforços para produção de vacinas e para a compra ou bloqueio antecipado das vacinas a serem produzidas. To get an idea, até o final de 2020 esses países já haviam garantido 3,8 bilhões de doses. A quantidade comprada por países como Estados Unidos e países europeus superavam largamente a sua população. Só os EUA, for example, compraram vacinas que superavam 5 doses por...

Membros da diáspora armênia em frente da embaixada turca nos EUA. 24/4/2021. (REUTERS) Recently, o atual presidente dos EUA, Joe Biden, reconheceu o genocídio armênio, o que desencadeou alguns desentendimentos entre o presidente norte-americano e o turco. After all, ambos países são membros da OTAN (Tratado do Atlântico do Norte), that is, têm uma relação no que diz respeito a questão militar e, o reconhecimento não foi visto com bons olhos pela Turquia, chegando a ser taxada como ato capaz de “ferir” e “danificar” as relações no que tange a organização militar. Outro fator que corroborou para o clima ter ficado um pouco mais quente foi o conflito ocorrido nos meses de setembro e outubro de 2020 entre a Armênia e o Azerbaijão, na região de Nagorno-Karabakh, onde a Turquia apoiou o g...

Iwakura Mission Route Any reflection on the emergence of Asia as (The) major axis of globalization at the beginning of this century and the role that the continent is playing on the geoeconomic / geopolitical level, have to recap, At my point of view, what happened to Japan in the late 19th century. It is worth remembering that the country has remained practically closed to the world for more than two hundred years, by imposition of the Tokugawa shoguns, who feared that the “insidious” Christianization of the population by Catholic missionaries - Portuguese Jesuits, mainly - to undermine the pillars and the soul of the nation.

How the British see their role in the developing world 2030 - and how they are preparing to exercise it

The United Kingdom has just released a document which I think is very important to read, fundamental even, for those who are willing to understand the game that the great powers are playing in the international arena.

Like this, today we get used to the idea that today we are in a better condition than yesterday and that we will continue to move forward. In itself the proposal is not unreasonable, but carries the risk of becoming arrogant, believing that today we live at the best (for a more philosophical reading of this perspective, I recommend the reading of A Rebelião das Massas, by Jose de Ortega Y Gasset). Especially due to the technologies, we have concrete evidence that we are at the moment of greatest advance in the history of Humanity....
