    Crying foul, again: Black Lives Matter

    Crying foul, again: Black Lives Matter

    The organisation is not that organised, and attention has waned since its calls for change first gripped America. Will it seize the current moment of outrage? The pandemic may threaten London’s place as Britain’s undisputed centre of gravity. And a researcher spooks spooks by revealing a decades-old spy pact.

    Checking their privilege: Beijing’s threat to Hong Kong

    Checking their privilege: Beijing’s threat to Hong Kong

    China’s parliament voted today to draft legislation that would utterly undermine the territory’s independence. What now for protesters, for Western powers, for the region’s foreign firms? The pandemic has quashed some crimes but has also created new nefarious opportunities. And it may be closing time for the golden age of the booze business.

    Leading nowhere: assessing Trump’s covid-19 response

    Leading nowhere: assessing Trump’s covid-19 response

    President Donald Trump’s failures of leadership have compounded the crisis. But America’s health-care and preparedness systems have problems that predate him. South Korea marks the 40th anniversary of a massacre that remains politically divisive even now. And, today’s space-launch plan in America blazes a trail for a new, commercial space industry.

    Shot chasers: big pharma’s covid-19 boost

    Shot chasers: big pharma’s covid-19 boost

    The pandemic has caused a shift in how drug firms are viewed: their capacity for big-money innovation will give them immunity in the crisis. Widespread homeworking will have broad consequences, from commercial-property values to urban demographics. And a seemingly innocuous Hong Kong history exam is a window into the territory’s increasingly fraught politics.

    Clear skies with a chance: covid-19’s green opportunity

    Clear skies with a chance: covid-19’s green opportunity

    Emissions have plummeted as the pandemic slowed the world. It could be a mere blip—but it is an unprecedented opportunity for a greener, more sustainable economy. Serving in America’s armed forces is a long-established path to citizenship, but that path is narrowing. And we ask how sport will emerge from the pandemic, even if the stands stay empty.

    Systemic concerns: China’s party congress

    Systemic concerns: China’s party congress

    Legislation signalled at the annual meeting undermines the “one country, two systems” approach to Hong Kong’s rule—and may inflame rather than quell protests. Argentina finds itself at the doorstep of default once again; the pandemic is sharpening the hardship ahead. And remembering the woman who expanded Irish poetry with the gloriously quotidian.
