How Ping-Pong Changed the World

The opening of relations between the United States and the People’s Republic of China was perhaps one of the top three most important moments in Cold War history. Ranking behind perhaps only the Cuban Missile Crisis and the fall of the Berlin Wall, the opening of relations between the two massive countries redefined global politics with a relationship that lasts to this day. This process began with “ping-pong diplomacy,” when in 1971 Chinese ping-pong world champion Zhuang Zedong handed US…

Mediation in Syria-Mission Improbable

As a professional mediator, I am always encouraged by the use of mediation to resolve international conflicts. However, in the case of Syria, I have little confidence that mediation will bring peace to the conflict. Very few of the essential elements for successful mediation are present in this conflict.

The first consideration in convening any mediation is deciding who the parties at the table will be. In this case, the current Syrian government will certainly be a party. However,…

Don’t change the message. Change the messenger.

Weh Yeoh of argues that everything that we do in international development is about selling a message. But how do we convince people when a message goes against the grain of what they already believe?

Iran, the EU and what we should have learned by now

New on TFF's new blog...
