Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable :Educate, Go Local, And Collaborate!

Few months ago in a seminar that I’ve attended, I heard a lecturer say, “Disaster becomes a disaster when there are humans involved in it.” Several earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen every day around the world, and it seems that only few of them receive a true public spotlight. Always, news of earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen to have thousands of civilian casualties, with its number increasing as media’s live coverage continues day by day. Have we ever paid attention on natural…

Desperately Seeking Metaphors for Global Civics

Less than one week ago, heads of state from 195 countries passed the Paris Agreement – a legally binding international agreement on climate – with the aim of limiting the global temperature rise to below 2°C. This agreement represents, quite possible, the world’s best answer to the most widespread global challenge we face in this century.

Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time, with David Miliband

Today there are 65 million people who have fled their homes because of conflict or persecution, says the International Rescue Committee's David Miliband. These are refugees not economic migrants, and half of them are children. It's a long-term crisis that will last our lifetimes. Why should we care? And what can we do about it, both at a policy level and as individuals?

Clip of the Month: Winning the Argument on Immigration with David Miliband

As president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), David Miliband oversees both the agency's humanitarian relief operations and its refugee resettlement and assistance programs in several American cities. Although he was not responsible for the EU’s decisions on refugees or immigrants, during his tenure as the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary from 2007 to 2010, he saw how his government responded to an unexpectedly large influx of European workers and the resulting impact on British society. In this clip, Miliband draws on both of these roles and explains why he is confident that Europeans and Americans can be convinced that immigration, in all of its forms, can be positive, economically and culturally. In any case, he says, it’s an argument that "has to be won."

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.
