It’s been 10 years since I started writing in the areas of diplomacy and technological development. But this year began by presenting the world with an incredible challenge. With the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have entered a period of great uncertainty. Nature is showing us how fragile our humanity is in the grand scale of things, and as we hide inside our homes from this biological threat, questions arise as to whether the social, political and economic systems we have created to govern and manage society will be able to support the livelihood of our communities. I believe that this is a moment in which all sciences need to be mobilized for crafting solutions to what has truly become a global challenge. And in the move, one thing needs to remain clear: our dealings with such a complex project can only be brought forward through democratic processes and broad community engagement.
With a particular focus on corporate diplomacy and Brazilian foreign policy, my posts about international relations seek to discuss matters of public policy and global governance.
With particular interest in ICT industry and cyborg studies, my posts about science and technology seek to discuss the social, political and economic dimensions of technological advancements.
