Shuvaloy Majumdar, Visiting Foreign Policy Scholar, University of British Columbia Liu Institute for Global IssuesFreedom: Connecting Citizens to State, Citizen and IdeaI never thought there would be a time when a car bomb would sound as normal as sirens near a fire house. Or the scream of an incoming mortar as something to dust off and carry on from. I hated my cell phone. It rarely delivered any good news, and all too often broke my heart. I remember coming home that Christmas for a visit -- and being incapable of connecting with the reality of what I had just seen.Shuvaloy Majumdar is a Visiting Foreign Policy Scholar at the University of British Columbia with a focus on Broader Middle East and North Africa (BMENA) democratization.
