Ukraine emerged as an unexpected flashpoint of geopolitical struggle this March. As Ukraine's new government tried to restore order, it faces the challenge of governing a country where instability is the norm, not the exception.

Thailand has faced months of protests against Prime Minister Yingluck Shiniwatra, ignited by a failed amnesty bill that would have allowed former leader Thaksin Shinawatra to return to politics. The protests reflect deep divisions within the country between mainly rural areas that support the government and the middle-class championing change.

Over a decade ago, strikes rocked Venezuela’s oil industry. Since then, the government has done much to increase standards of living. According to the World Bank, poverty in Venezuela shrank by over 20% in 2012, the largest decline of any country in Latin America. Yet Venezuela now faces economic decline and protests against President Nicolas Maduro, the successor of Hugo Chavez.
