Bridging the Gaps

Any effort to improve our current situation and the well-being of our society is most effective when we acknowledge the existence of gaps: the divides between policies and its implementation, the complaints of under- and over-resourced, the contrast between the haves and the have-nots, and other obvious and hidden gaps among generations, countries and societies. For this fourth issue of THink, contributors write about gaps they have observed — and the potential solutions to bridge these gaps.

In this issue:

  • Feature: The Diplomacy of China 3.0: How to Be Creatively Involved in World Affairs
  • Higher Education Reform in Cambodia since 1990s: How or What for?
  • The Early Childhood Practice Gap: A Matter of Context
  • Where Are the Youth in Agriculture?
