A Journey to Regions of Conflict - From Southeast Asia to the Middle East

The Cold War had ended, and many thought that the threat of war had finally faded away, but now a new kind of war, as well as terrorism, has shrouded the world. The world of today is becoming increasingly unstable due to a deepening fragmentation and a shift in power balance. Has the path of multicultural coexistence faded away through pressure of unification by nation-states and globalization? We'll discuss this topic while taking a look at various regions of conflict.
