Humanity's Four Challenges

By Grand Mufti Mustafa Ceric of Bosnia-Herzegovina

I believe there are four challenges for us that are over our heads. These challenges I would describe as four roads: from might to right, from slavery to freedom, from mythology to science, and from theory of state to democracy of state. Let me explain.

This civilization that we live in—you may call it Western…

Moral Leadership and Today’s Society: It Begins With You

Embracing good or moral leadership entails a deep understanding of what leadership is and what it means by being a good leader. Although many scholars and individuals have had different perceptions of leadership, I would like my readers to view leadership as the ability to steer individuals under one’s control with the intention of creating results that could not be arrived at before the coming in of such a leader. For this reason, a moral leader should have…

REVERSING THE PRACTICE OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION/CUTTING: A CALL FOR POLITICAL ACTION TO END THE VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE GIRL CHILD

As the summer holiday approaches, my heart beats faster! Last summer, five years old Tida, was taken to her grandmother for the holiday to have some fun from the pressure of kindergarten work. As a neighbor, I admire Fatoumatta, the mother of Tida for her courage to send her girl child to school despite the economic challenges she faces in meeting the daily demands of her family. Her commitment in ensuring that the child attains education to enable her live a productive and independent…

Write it down, so it's real

Tara Knox

Drexel University

United States

Student signing her name to the Peace Wall on the Protestant side of Belfast, Northern Ireland. The Peace Wall is somewhat contradictory since it actually separates Belfast in two; Protestants live on one side of the wall, Catholics on the other. The wall is kept up by the government on request of the people. Although the Peace Wall divides the city in two, it still symbolizes hope. The wall reminds Belfast residents that they…

The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World, with Robert Kagan

"The analogy that is at the heart of this book is about a jungle and a garden," says Robert Kagan. "In order to have a garden and sustain a garden, you've got to be constantly gardening. For me at least, that is a good analogy for this liberal world order, which itself is an unnatural creation which natural forces are always working to undermine." Human nature has not fundamentally changed, and this peaceful period is an aberration.

The Living Legacy of the First World War

Five Fellows from "The Living Legacy of the First World War" project present their work. Their talks cover the history of war-induced psychological trauma and how it has been dealt with in the U.S. military; the impact of the defense industry's profit motive on U.S. foreign policy; haunting photos of severely facially disfigured soldiers; the legacy of press censorship during WWI; and the humanitarianism of Jane Addams.

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

The Rohingya are seen as fundamentally 'other,' says Prasse-Freeman. "Hence, even if they have formal citizenship, they wouldn't really be accepted as citizens, as full members of the polity." Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.
