Elevate the Discourse

Logo with White background

What is Opedspace? We live in a world with shifting borders, fragmenting post-cold war order and a tenuous global economic recovery. Technology changed how we receive and digest these events, democratizing ideas, opinions and thought leadership. Yet, in the cacophony of news we feel amiss. Popular media trivialises the issues and think tanks bury meaningful insight in technical jargon. We see a need for a forum where young professionals can easily and readily access others’ opinions and views on the events which are shaping our world. Opedspace.com gives you the opportunity to share your view and gain access to the informed views of your peers.

We challenge you readers, friends, acquaintances, future leaders: What are the issues you care about? Become part of the debate and contribute your op-ed.

Looking around the world – we are facing a multiplicity of challenges that are both distant and fragmented but also interrelated and entwined. From Donetsk to Mosul to Ferguson we see the resurgence of old issues long thought dead. The Cold War’s comeback in the form of Russian aggression in Ukraine casts a chill over Eastern Europe. Religious-sectarian divisions have brought about ethnic cleansing and the collapse of State power to North-Western Iraq in the form of ISIS. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict (never far behind in the news) has flared up again, and looks farther from solution than ever before. The US role–and that of other major powers–is, as ever, central to all of these issues but their ability to unilaterally determine outcomes seems a relic of a bygone era.

These are just a few of the defining issues of our age and we want to hear what you have to say. Please submit your opinion and enter the debate. With that we look forward to receiving your submissions and are excited for the first phase of opedspace.com

About

OpedSpace is an open digital space for young professionals and students to express their views on the entrenched and seemingly intractable challenges that the world faces.

    Amazing!

  • Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after
    looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
