The second edition of The Asia Foundation’s State of Conflict and Violence in Asia explores recent events and patterns of events through regional assessments and country-specific overviews. In particular, this report addresses contemporary concerns over political polarization and identity-based tensions. Following the overview chapter, three keynote essays featuring regional experts offer closer assessments of recent conflict trends. Ten concise country summaries then present greater detail. The data draws from a range of primary and secondary sources, including country-level and regional datasets on violence and conflict, academic analyses, reporting on contemporary events, and other research conducted by The Asia Foundation.

The situation in Ukraine is bad and getting worse. Russia is poised to invade and demanding airtight guarantees that NATO will never, ever expand farther to the east. Negotiations do not appear to be succeeding, and the United States and its NATO allies are beginning to contemplate how they will make Russia pay should it press forward with an invasion. A real war is now a distinct possibility, which would have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved, especially Ukraine’s citizens.
China’s Digital Silk Road is an ambitious vision to catalyze global digitalization. What will it mean for digital governance?
By Richard Ghiasy and Rajeshwari Krishnamurthy – April 13, 2021
China’s Digital Silk Road (DSR) was launched in 2015 as a component of Beijing’s vast vision for global connectivity, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Like the BRI, the DSR is not monolithic and involves many actors at all levels across the Chinese public and private sectors. It is amorphous and the line between official and unofficial DSR projects is often blurry. Comprehensive data on DSR investments is difficult to come by. According to one estimate, by 2018, DSR-related investments in digital infrastructure projects outside of China had reached $79 billion.
According to a report published by the World Bank, Vietnam can develop 5-10GW of offshore wind power by 2030, generating about $60 billion in added value.
The policymakers of the latest draft of Vietnam’s mammoth Power Development Plan VIII see themselves confronted with additional wind and solar demand, as well as the scrutiny of a deputy prime minister, requiring the Ministry of Industry and Trade to remedy issues to meet the national goals of energy security and net zero emissions by 2050.

The latest climate science is clear: Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F) is still possible. But to avoid the worst climate impacts, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will need to drop by half by 2030 and reach net-zero around mid-century.
Recognizing this urgency, a rapidly growing number of national government, local government and business leaders are making commitments to reach net-zero emissions within their jurisdictions or businesses. To date, over 80 countries have communicated such “net-zero targets,” including the world’s largest emitters (China, the United States, the European Union and India). On top of that, hundreds more regions, cities and businesses have set targets of their own.
We start with a review of short-term issues in the oil, gas and electricity markets. Bassam Fattouh and Andreas Economou consider the outlook for oil demand over the next 12 months and discuss the ability of OPEC+ producers to manage a gradual increase in production to balance the market, even as demand growth is expected to soften. Their conclusion is that the oil price will remain within a $70-90 per barrel range, while refilling depleted storage will be a key issue. Price volatility, in light of considerable uncertainty about both supply and demand, as well as political responses to high prices will remain dominant issues in 2022. Anupama Sen, David Robinson and Rahmat Poudineh then discuss government responses to current electricity price volatility, using the UK and Spain as examples of different responses to providing protection for low-income consumers. They see the issue becoming increasingly relevant as the energy transition progresses and suggest that government intervention could become less and less effective unless energy policy is well designed. In a somewhat similar vein, Mike Fulwood and Jack Sharples consider the outlook for gas prices and supply to Europe and the implications for the global LNG market. Replenishing European storage will be a critical issue in 2022, with LNG supply, Asian demand and pipeline exports from Russia being key drivers to watch.
Đòi công lý cho Hoàng Sa là điều rất chính đáng và được đặt ra thường xuyên, đòi hỏi sự chung tay góp sức của mỗi người dân Việt Nam.
Ngày này 48 năm trước (19-1-1974), Trung Quốc (TQ) đã dùng vũ lực chiếm đóng trái phép quần đảo Hoàng Sa của Việt Nam (VN). Nhân sự kiện này, báo Pháp Luật TP.HCM có cuộc trao đổi với ông Võ Ngọc Đồng, Giám đốc Sở Nội vụ TP Đà Nẵng kiêm Chủ tịch UBND huyện Hoàng Sa.
Chủ tịch huyện Hoàng Sa nói: “Ngày này, cả nước hướng về Hoàng Sa như cuộc hành hương về lòng yêu nước và nỗi nhớ về một vùng lãnh thổ đang bị TQ chiếm đóng”.
As the Taliban swept through Afghanistan in mid-August, declaring the end of two decades of war, reports quickly circulated that they had also captured US military biometric devices used to collect data such as iris scans, fingerprints, and facial images.Some feared that the machines, known as HIIDE, could be used to help identify Afghans who had supported coalition forces.
According to experts speaking to MIT Technology Review, however, these devices actually provide only limited access to biometric data, which is held remotely on secure servers. But our reporting shows that there is a greater threat from Afghan government databases containing sensitive personal information that could be used to identify millions of people around the country.
MIT Technology Review spoke to two individuals familiar with one of these systems, a US-funded database known as APPS, the Afghan Personnel and Pay System. Used by both the Afghan Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Defense to pay the national army and police, it is arguably the most sensitive system of its kind in the country, going into extreme levels of detail about security personnel and their extended networks. We granted the sources anonymity to protect them against potential reprisals.

Following years of effort, in 2015 Vietnam concluded negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal. After the US withdrawal from the trade pact, Vietnam worked with the remaining members to revive it under the name of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Indeed, Vietnam was the seventh member to ratify the CPTPP.
