NO RIGHTS FOR ROHINGYA(8.09.2017)

No rights for Rohingya

This sounds weird but is a reality for Rohingyas. The Myanmar government in May 2013 ordered Rohingyas not to have more than two children to escape from Buddhist attacks on them. The measure has been enacted in Rakhine state following a proposal by a government appointed commission investigating deadly clashes in 2012 between Buddhists monks and Rohingya Muslims. Mobs of Buddhists armed with machetes razed thousands of Rohingya homes, leaving more than one hundred of people dead and forcing 125,000 to flee, mostly Rohingyas from violence."State officials said the two-child limit in the state of Rakhine would ease tensions between Buddhists and their Muslim Rohingya neig...


REFUGEE CRISIS IN SYRIA: GREATEST FEAR OF EU, GREAT HOSPITALITY OF TURKEY(12.04.2017)

Refugee Crisis in Syria: Greatest Fear of EU, Great Hospitality of Turkey

Arab Spring, which started in 2010 and still has prolonged effects, has also penetrated Syria and protests against the regime have turned into a war in a short time. This process has resulted in instability and obscurity both in Syria and around the region. The war in Syria has led millions of Syrians to take refuge in different countries. Undoubtedly, Turkey is one of those main countries. Failure to find an international solution to the current crisis in Syria prognosticates that stability will not be assured for many years and the refugee issue that has world-wide effects will continue to grow. In this paper, we will analyze the refugee issue in terms of International Rela...


NEW ARMENIAN POLICY FOR THE NAGORNO-KARABAKH ISSUE(12.04.2017)

New Armenian policy for the Nagorno-Karabakh issue

Azerbaijan's breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region voted in a referendum to change the presidential powers on February 20. The separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region has strengthened the leader's powers in a referendum that international observers warned was illegal.The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is a territorial and ethnic conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which by de-facto, is Armenian-controlled by the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh regime. Yet, it is internationally recognized as an inseparable part of Azerbaijan.The conflict has its origins in the early 20th century, although the present conflict began in 1988 and escalated into a f...


OBSERVING HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(13.02.2017)

Observing Human Rights in the Middle East

It becomes evident when traveling in war zones and isolated areas that the most vulnerable in such places are women and young children.In January, on a train bound from Mashhad, Iran, to Tabriz, I met a woman who looked to be in her 30s. Her name was Amir Nedai.Amir and I were sharing a 4-bed passenger cubicle with another couple from Iran; on a ride that would take 24 hours until our destination. Unlike Amir’s short stature, her husband was quite tall. He must not have liked the idea that his wife would be in the same cubicle with a foreign man (he and Amir were placed in different sections), because when he came inside our room, he did not even greet me.It felt ...


AFGHANISTAN FUTURE IN WORLD POLITICS: THE PRESTIGE WAR(27.10.2016)

Afghanistan Future in World Politics: The Prestige War

Afghanistan was one of the places where Russia and the United Kingdom clashed during the 19th century. This geopolitical rivalry went down in history as "The Great Game." The United Kingdom aimed to keep away Russian influence from its Indian colony by capturing Afghanistan. The Great Game resulted with Afghanistan staying as a buffer state. The United Kingdom protected India from the Russian threat by reinforcing its dominance in Afghanistan. The Cold War era has once again rewritten the fate of Afghanistan. It can be hard to explain Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan solely by geopolitical interests. In this regard, the incident is important because it was the last case of th...
