Australia’s new migration bill shifts task to security
18 December 2014 (IRIN ), This week's passing into law of Australia’s Migration and Maritime Powers Legislation Amendment Act, which comes on the heels of a year of tightened border controls and refugee intake policy changes, could chill regional cooperation. Experts say it reflects global trends of treating migration as a security problem, and acknowledging that might be an important avenue for Southeast Asian regional policy development.

Peak youth - seizing the moment
25 November 2014 (IRIN ), We have accepted the concept “peak oil” - the point where oil production goes into an irreversible decline. Now we are being asked to contemplate that we are also rapidly approaching “peak youth”, when there will be more young people than ever before in the history of the planet, and when young people as a proportion of the population will reach a maximum, before starting to drop.

Crypto-currencies and the aid industry
13 November 2014 (IRIN ), Meet Bitcoin: An encrypted digital currency the value of which has fluctuated sharply in recent years. It does not exist physically, there is no authority that oversees it, and you need Internet access to manage it. This might not sound like a formula for humanitarian success. However, experts say, Bitcoin offers important lessons for aid delivery in situations with weak (or destroyed) institutions.

NGOs in the anti-terror trap *
11 November 2014 (IRIN ), The US anti-terrorism laws introduced since the World Trade Centre attacks are a minefield for humanitarian agencies and international NGOs, varying widely in their application from one country to another and targeting a whole variety of different political groups and individuals. The US-based NGO alliance, Interaction, says it needs six full time staff members just to ensure compliance with anti-diversion policies, two of whom spend most of their time checking partners against various anti-terrorism and other lists.
