- Obama became the first sitting president to visit Myanmar/Burma yesterday. Plus, Amnesty International announced the release of political prisoners in the country yesterday, too. It’s a little rare for the organization to “name and praise” instead of “name and shame” so I wonder about the logic of Amnesty’s press release….hmm…that’s an interesting research question
- Obama is also working on maritime disputes during his trip. Check out Doug Gibler’s post on maritime disputes (and territorial disputes more generally) at The Monkey Cage
- ISQ just posted a bunch of Early View articles in time for Thanksgiving reading. Human rights people: check out Wade Cole’s piece and the piece by Emilie Hafner-Burton and James Ron. Network people: check out Renato Corbetta‘s work and the work by Yuri M. Zhukov and Brandon M. Stewar. I’m sure I’m missing linking quite a few important pieces – there were 14 new articles posted!
