  • One of the non-government Thai participants in last December's Asia Pacific community conference in Sydney shares his views on regional architecture. It's largely in line with much thinking here in Australia, except perhaps for the point about strengthening the ASEAN-3 (minus Australia) process.
  • The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces has released a book on security sector reform, including a chapter on East Timor.
  • The German Marshall Fund has a blog.
  • China's chief climate change negotiator questions the climate science consensus.
  • You don't see new magazines launched in Australia every day. This one focuses on 'the strong and increasing involvement between Government and Business.' (Thanks to Will for the link.)
  • The NY Times has a collection of memos sent to Washington by US Ambassador to Afghanistan Eikenberry just before Obama's surge announcement. (Thanks to Will for this one too.)
  • China has turned to Brazil to help train future aircraft carrier pilots. Analysis here from the Portugese Institute of International Relations and Security.
  • Among many subtleties lost in the media reporting of boat people is the fact that some of the Sri Lankans arriving in Australia are in fact coming from India.
