KATHMANDU: Dr. Pramod Jaiswal has joined the Khabarhub team as its Strategic Affairs Editor.
Dr. Jaiswal will oversee the Strategic Affairs Desk at Khabarhub.
The new Strategic Affairs Desk is believed to further strengthen Khabarhub’s round-the-clock reportage as it seeks to deepen and bolster the coverage of issues related to foreign policy and strategic affairs.
In the coming days, Khabarhub will focus on in-depth analysis, coverage, and interviews with the leading foreign policy experts, diplomats, strategic analysts and leaders.
Expressing his excitement, Dr. Jaiswal said, “Nepal’s geographical position forms a critical geo-strategic setting with the interplay of greater geopolitical and security interests of India and China.”
He added that comprehensive coverage of such developments is still lacking within the Nepali media.
“Hence, I am convinced this would be a great opportunity for me to contribute through Khabarhub,” he added.
Dr. Jaiswal is a Research Director at Nepal Institute for International Cooperation and Engagement (NIICE), a think tank that focuses on foreign policy and security issues.
He has been teaching at several universities of China (such as China Foreign Affairs University, Fudan University, Tongji University, and Qinghai University of Nationalities) and Nepal (such as Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University, Army Command, and Staff College) as regular and visiting faculty.
At the moment, Dr. Jaiswal is associated as a Visiting Fellow at Sandia National Laboratories, Cooperative Monitoring Center, Albuquerque, New Mexico, US, and Senior Fellow at the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies, New Delhi.
Previously, he has worked with Manohar Parikkar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, New Delhi, and as Delhi Correspondent of the ‘Rising Nepal’.
