The Weekly Global Roundup: Questions Of Responsibility In Asia (November 19 to 24, 2018)

This roundup covers news summaries across six regions: Africa, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, North America, and South America. Wherever possible I draw links to Singapore, but I think it is more important to understand geopolitical developments around the world, to draw attention to meaningful news stories, and to highlight both positive and negative events.

Around the world, I rely primarily on the email newsletters from “The Economist“, “Foreign Policy“, “Muck Rack“, “The New York Times“, “The Wall Street Journal“, and “The World Post“. In Singapore, the weekly digests from the European Union Centre and the Middle East Institute are handy. Do send me recommendations of news outlets or articles too, to jinyao.guan.yin.miao[a]gmail.com!

APEC 2018.

November 19 to 24, 2018

A landmark ruling in Cambodia found two Khmer Rouge officials guilty of genocide, while disagreements between China and the United States – with different narratives of the disagreements, as both countries blamed one another – resulted in the failure of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to agree on a leaders’ communique for the first time in its history. In Cambodia, where more than 1.7 million people died from forced labour, starvation, and execution under the Khmer Rouge regime between 1975 and 1979, an international tribunal found two Khmer Rouge officials guilty of genocide. And in Papua New Guinea, APEC failed to agree on a leaders’ communique because of deep divisions between China and the United States over trade and investment, and the chairman of the meeting said “the sticking point was over whether mention of the World Trade Organisation and its possible reform should be in the [declaration]“.
