Israel-Gaza Conflict: Here We Are Again

To begin, I want to make my view clear that the attacks by both Israel and Hamas must be strongly condemned.

HUMAN COMMODITIZATION IN THE 21st CENTURY: A SACRILEGE ON HUMAN DIGNITY

The 1833 slavery abolition Act that gave all slaves in British Empire their freedom and the 1865 US 13th Amendment to the constitution at the conclusion of the civil war were gallant efforts by people of conscience the world over on the total abolishment of slavery- the institutionalization of humankind as a property.

Different Forms of Violence Against Women

In order to realize the full scope of violence against women, it is necessary to consider some of its component parts. These forms of violence are all quite different, as are the circumstances that give rise to them.

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?
