PS21 Update: week ending Dec 11


Hi all,

The year is quickly coming to an end, Friday being exactly two weeks to go to Christmas. With that and holiday festivities now in full force it’s been a quieter week here at PS21, but we’ve still published some great pieces.

Jack Goldstone wrote a piece on Syria, Yemen, Libya – one factor unites these failed states, and it isn’t religion . Kate West Moran looked at Why America Should Take Mideast Refugees and Peter Apps tells us what the West should have learned from its ‘long war on terror’.


We will return in the new year with an exciting series of events in London, New York and Washington DC.
