Critics led by the US argue China is just using Africa to extract resources for it‟s use, an allegation She refutes. The authors therefore sought to look at Sino-African relations but focusing on the implementation of "One Belt, One Road‟ in the African continent.Being the centre piece.........

Title : The Air is Sick: Ozone Depletion as an Ecofeminist Issue in The Fifth Sacred Thing of Starhawk
Country : India
Authors : Sangeeta G. Avachar

Abstract: According to ecofeminist philosophers, the existence of significant linkages between the treatment of women and other oppressed classes and the treatment of natural environment are two sides of the same coin. Moreover, they highlight the insufficiency of those feminist and environmental ethics that fail to consider these connections substantially and admit that they can‟t be exclusive unless. Subsequently, it becomes mandatory for the people keenly interested in finding solutions to environmental destruction as well as domination of women and other suppressed classes to tackle these kinships interdependently and attentively...........

Title : Democratic Rights of Turkish Immigrants in Germany; Enduring Discrepancy of Theory and Practice
Country : Turkey
Authors : Emrah AYHAN || Murat ÖNDER

Abstract: The academic research and practices on democracy present western countries as almost perfect democracies in theory; however, focusing on citizen-based analysis they neglect major democratic rights of immigrants and their families in practice. Even if these immigrants gain the citizenship of the receiving country where they settled, they still face discrimination in their social, economic and political lives. There has been a dramatic increase in hate-crimes, anti-Islamism, intolerance and discrimination towards Muslim immigrants in western countries during the last two decades, parallel to continuous increase in migration from third countries........
