On the leading — if not bleeding — edge
Translate molten magma into political risk — and you can see that hot spots don’t just exist in geology, but shape the global political landscape as well.
Think of what’s going on inside Pakistan. Or India. Or Thailand. Or Syria, Sudan,
They concern key issues of human development, such as religious tolerance, respect for women, democracy, human rights.
To capture the leading — and, sadly, often also the bleeding — edge of these trouble spots, we have created our Global HotSpots column.
