My special report on Chinese youth is out in @TheEconomist. I spoke to people of the post-Tiananmen generation in nightclubs, on farms. I found them to be patriotic—but also engaged, passionate & worldly. I describe who they are & what they want (1/7) economist.com/special-report…

The hardy cactus — fond of heat and aridity, adapted to rough soils — might not seem like the picture of a climate change victim. But even they have their limits. nytimes.com/2022/04/14/clima…

In honour of #IWD2022, I worked with @TheEconomist to invite four women to each contribute a guest essay on four issues deeply connected to girls’ education: conflict, climate, digital inclusion and discrimination. A thread on each incredible contributor and her piece👇🏽

New pipes and pumping stations. Reservoirs rerouted. Irrigation reduced and farmers resettled. This is what happens when the Winter Olympics are held in a place almost completely lacking in one of the main ingredients for winter sports: snow. nytimes.com/2022/02/05/sport…

In China, cohabitation and conceiving out of wedlock are becoming more common as sexual mores change. Yet never-married mothers are still penalised by the state. Some are fighting back. My story from Shanghai economist.com/china/2021/12/…
