by Joshua D. Rauh, Jillian Ludwigvia Hoover Institution Press
Friday, June 17, 2022

Despite the billions of dollars of state funding that goes towards homelessness programs and services each year, California leads the nation with more than 161,000 people experiencing homelessness at most recent count, a vast majority of whom are unsheltered.

US–Japan Global Cooperation In An Age Of Disruption

by Akihiko Tanaka, Kiyoteru Tsutsui, Shihoko Goto, Rumi Aoyama, Kazuto Suzuki, Tyler Goodspeed, Daniel Okimotovia Hoover Institution Press
Tuesday, May 17, 2022

For over six decades, the US-Japan Alliance has played a key role in maintaining stability in East Asia. Now, with the rise of China, the North Korean nuclear threat, instability in Europe, and competition in the high-tech sector, the alliance will play an increasingly important role. Washington and Tokyo can collaborate on next-generation technology, encourage democratic systems, and play an even larger, if more challenging, security role.


Can The Intelligence Community Tell What’s Brewing In Afghanistan?

by Reuel Marc Gerechtvia The Caravan Notebook
Thursday, May 5, 2022

Although the age of mass-casualty Islamic terrorism may be ending, American intelligence ought to assume worst-case scenarios. Afghanistan and Pakistan remain the two most likely locales for Al-Qa’ida—still the only organization to have organized a mass-casualty attack from Western-based cells—to organize new assaults against the United States. Is the CIA capable of designing and running operations in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan that could detect and thwart new conspiracies?

When Indonesia Meets The Middle East: Thoughts On Center-Periphery Relations

by Giora Elirazvia The Caravan Notebook
Wednesday, April 27, 2022

Though often considered peripheral to the Islamic world, the huge Muslim population of Indonesia has for centuries been affiliated with the Sunni Middle East. Wide concern over rising extremism originating in the Middle East can be noticed in democratic Indonesia, which has encouraged democratic transition in the Arab world and launched initiatives to promote moderate voices of Islam globally. In this way Indonesia challenges the centuries-old “order” of center-periphery relations.

by Glenn Tiffert, Oliver McPherson-Smithvia Hoover Institution Press
Wednesday, April 20, 2022

Dans toute l'Afrique subsaharienne, la Chine a fait irruption sur la scène en tant que partenaire de premier plan. Si cette situation offre aux nations africaines de riches opportunités, elle les expose également aux risques d'un pouvoir de subversion (« sharp power ») autoritaire et fait peser une menace sur les conditions de la démocratie dans la région. Quels sont les signaux d'alarme ? Et comment les nations africaines peuvent-elles s'engager avec la Chine tout en sauvegardant leur souveraineté et en progressant vers une gouvernance, un développement et une démocratie de bonne qualité ?
