To give you all a little bit of background regarding the organization, the ISDP is an independent, non-profit research and policy institute, whose primary areas of geographic focus are Asia and Europe. The organization is split into three program parts: The Silk Road Studies Program, the Transnational Organized Crime Initiative and the Asia Program (which I will be an intern for). In all of these programs, the Institute is dedicated to helping to facilitate trust between countries through cooperation and conflict management, as well as the the free and open publication of information regarding PRACTICAL policy analysis (in other words, not just theory, actual recommendations to be practically implemented). What the Institute, and what others like them are doing has an impact on everyone, including you. A more peaceful world can only be created through cooperation, and real international cooperation is needed to address the prevalent security and humanitarian issues of our time. Issues like human trafficking, environmental degradation, terrorism, and global poverty are not isolated, the Institute recognizes that all of these threats are connected, that they affect everyone and that we, as a world, cannot afford to ignore them any longer.
The question isn't whether or not we need a more peaceful, cooperative world, the question is what does that mean for you?
