    I appeared on Monocle 24 last night to discuss the latest Asian headlines: an update on the Rohingya refugee crisis; the stalled Trans-Pacific Partnership talks; developments in Indonesia’s ‘plastic rice’ scandal; and a particularly extravagant purchase by the scion of a Chinese plutocrat: two gold iWatches – for his dog.   You can listen to […]

  • ‘ASEAN’s Unchanged Melody’ attracts interest

    October 24, 2010

    My recent article in the Pacific Review on ASEAN’s non-interference principle has been attracting some positive attention. I’ve received quite a few appreciative emails from fellow scholars and the article has been picked up by the Centre for Non-Traditional Security in Singapore too. It has also been highlighted by the US embassies in Hanoi and […]

  • Downtime

    July 17, 2010

    My website and blog has recently been down for quite a long time. This was due to the apparent collapse of my previous hosting company. It took me a long time to get my hands on the files needed to reconstruct the blog in particular, but now things seem to be OK. Fingers crossed…

  • Malaise

    January 15, 2007

    I was quite struck by the revelation today that France petitioned Britain to enter into “union” during the Suez crisis. According to declassified documents, French Prime Minister Mollet asked Eden for political union, joint citizenship a la the “Irish model” and thought it would be “no problem” for the Queen to become French head of […]

  • Saddam's execution: The Strip Tease of our Humanity

    December 30, 2006

    Forgive the total absence of posting recently. To say I have been manically busy would be an understatement. As usual it is only the depths of outrage that drive me back to blogging. While many commentators are assessing the execution of Saddam Hussein at 6am Iraqi time today in terms of its likely effects on […]
