Sociological and Political Aspects of Cryptocurrencies

By: Étienne Perrot, SJ

A new appetite for cryptocurrencies arose last year, and it has not diminished during this course of 2021. Why?

They are also looking to launch their own cryptocurrencies, the central bank digital currencies. The main technical aspects of these cryptocurrencies are easy to summarize. Their base is the blockchain, which is a technology for...

Iran, Russia and China: Is there a ‘new Mongolian empire’ on the horizon?

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

Thomas Flichy de La Neuville’s book Chine, Iran, Russie: un nouvel empire mongol? was published in 2013.[1] At the time the question was largely hypothetical.

Underpinning it are both mutual interests and resistance against common adversaries. The sheer weight of all three countries – China,...

Ecological Reflections on the Fukushima Wastewater Spillage

By: Seil Oh, SJ

It has been 10 years since an unpredictable earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused an accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. On April 13, 2021, Japan decided to discharge “water still potentially radioactive from the Fukushima nuclear power plant” into the ocean,[1] as this would be “the best way to dispose of tritium and traces of other radionuclides in the water.”[2] The first test releases could begin within two years, and it will probably take decades to dispose of...

Bratislava, Sunday September 12, 2021, 5:30 p.m. – Pope Francis has just concluded a meeting in the Nunciature with representatives of the Ecumenical Council of Churches.
