A Theory of Doddering Dominoes

In the Ukrainian crisis, if there is one organisation or entity that comes out as the most sensible in indicating the way forward for the world is the European Union (EU). The EU, as an organisation with a particular sensibility and sobriety, can temper the worst excesses of nationalism and the vehicle that it often mindlessly carries forward the nation-state.

Contesting ideological orientations have caused the exclusion of many talented, competent, and capable people from playing their part in state-building and nation-building.

CSPS Academic Writing Workshop on Writing a Research Proposal

Dr Ahmed began with the concept of what a research proposal essentially entails- it is a brief outline of one’s work and has to be convincing and intensely researched enough to be worked on.
