Although they seem similar, there is a fundamental difference between the Brzezinski Doctrine and the Giedroyć -Mieroszewski Doctrine. In essence, thanks to such visionaries as Giedroyć and Mieroszewski, who planted the seed, modern Poland was able to foster strong relations with all its neighbors (even with Russia until 2014). Those relations have been based on mutual respect, peace, and mutually extended security guarantees that built bridges of mutual understanding and not walls of false divisions with neighboring nations. In Munich in 2007, Putin made it clear that he would try to reanimate the corpse of the Soviet Union. “The International Community’s Response to the PutiniZation of the Situation in Ukraine.” Modern Diplomacy, December 22, 2022. https://moderndiplomacy.eu/2022/12/22/the-international-communitys-response-to-the-putinization-of-the-situation-in-ukraine/.
Some institutions had already shifted to some form of online teaching and learning before 2020. They must also be able to appropriately support their students through any challenges related to online teaching platforms.

It also enabled them to apply those theories when creating learning materials and facilitating learning online.24 days ago Modern Ghana

As an architect whose work includes researching ways to reduce heat in African cities , I think the creation of an Heat Officer position is a good move. But, while this is a global challenge, African cities are unique. Strengthen the link between heat and healthExposure to extreme heat usually comes with health problems – and can even kill people, as I and many other scholars have documented . This means malaria and other diseases transmitted by mosquitoes might become significant problems for Freetown and other African cities.

Masayoshi Arai likely believed that Kishida’s recent comments that Japan needs to be cautious about accepting same-sex marriages are likely to have been connected in Arai’s mind.
