But while voters “have shown their faith in democracy,” the lack of a strong mandate for any specific leader or institution “doesn’t necessarily bode well for [Pakistan’s] stability,” says USIP’s Tamanna Salikuddin.

    Jason Tower on China’s Growing Influence in Myanmar

    A string of recent defeats for Myanmar’s junta has “re-energized the resistance across the country,” says USIP’s Jason Tower.

Keep it civil

I enjoy the brief informative episodes. But please avoid the partisan rhetoric and sarcasm (eg the disability episode). It cheapens the podcast and I have higher expectations from institutions such as USIP in this area.

Insightful and informative

In a world that is full of difficulty and conflict, it is often challenging to find helpful information about peace building efforts around the globe. Hearing the experts at USIP discuss the nuances of complex international issues in such an approachable way enables me to have a broader perspective than is typically provided by the more sensational and limited news coverage available from more mainstream media sources. Cheers to the POWER OF A PODCAST. “On Peace” is well produced and effective in helping us understand that we are all stakeholders in the work of peace building both at home and abroad.
