April 23, 2014- Global Policy

The ability to create new lifeforms is promises both unlimited potential and dangerous pitfalls.

The Neurochemistry of Power: Implications for Political Change

February 27, 2014- Politics in Spires

On Artificial Intelligence and Meta-Geopolitics

February 14, 2014- The Fletcher Forum

 When TOPIO 1.0, a bipedal humanoid robot that plays table tennis against a human being, was first displayed in 2007, the news hardly received global acclaim. Artificial intelligence (AI) developments, which refer to intelligent computers and machines (equaling or surpassing human intelligence), have become increasingly widespread and commonplace.
 

What is the Future for the ‘China Governance Model’?

February 12, 2014- Politics in Spires

The recent leadership turnover in China took place against the backdrop of increased political and social tension. China’s leaders closely monitor not only the rise of social media, but the impact it has had on the Arab world. What they should infer from both developments is a growing demand for human dignity. Its “dignity deficits” may well be China’s Achilles heel.

 

Sustainable Power is Just Power

December 6, 2013 - E-International Relations

Freedom vs. Dignity: A Sustainable History Thesis for the Arab Spring

November 7, 2013- Georgetown Journal

The Arab Spring is perhaps the most important transformative movement since the revolutions that swept through Eastern Europe in 1989.

Inevitable Transhumanism? How Emerging Strategic Technologies will affect the Future of Humanity

October 29, 2013- International Relations and Security Network, ETH Zurich

It is ironic and indeed counterintuitive that our own human nature has a huge potential to drive us towards physical and cognitive enhancements that may completely alter the characteristics of our species. As I have outlined in a previous work, human nature is defined by emotional amoral egoism. 
 

China and the United States: A Symbiosis

September 27, 2013- The National Interest

The flurry of speculation and polemic that has characterized U.S.-Chinese relations in the past decade or so reached a new intensity with the leadership turnover in China earlier this year. As Barack Obama started his second term in office and Xi Jinping assumed power in March, renewed debates emerged about the future of U.S.-Chinese relations, still perceived as the two greatest competitors for hegemonic status in international affairs.

Knowledge and Global Order

August, 2013- BBVA OpenMind

“Why do they hate us?” is a question often asked among the American population since September 11, 2001. At the same time, Arab-Islamic populations around the world find themselves in a similar predicament.

Arab Spring Transitions Need Home Grown Solutions

August 7, 2013- IPI Global Observatory

The new era of transition ushered in by the Arab Spring across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has brought opportunities for external actors to reset their foreign policies towards the countries of the region. However, Arab states accept aid reluctantly from the outside, as mistrust still abounds. Externally driven initiatives tend to be viewed as potential vehicles for influence or subterfuges for the de-Islamization and meddling in the Arab world.

Hans Morgenthau una vez escribió que : "Las relaciones internacionales es algo que no debe darse por sentado , pero algo debe entender y ser cambiado y , más particularmente, a cambiar más allá de los límites actuales de su estructura política y la organización."

The Future of International Relations: A Symbiotic Realism Theory

2012- BBVA OpenMind

Hans Morgenthau once wrote that: “ International relations is something not to be taken for granted, but something to be understood and to be changed and, more particularly, to be changed beyond the present limits of its political structure and organization. Here lies indeed the ultimate theoretical and practical justification for our interest in a theory of international relations.”
