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. Both sides have been displaying utter disregard for the right to life and a clear lack of interest in holding those responsible (including senior political and military leaders) accountable for grave human rights violations and violations of international law. This lack of accountability may have been a key factor in the resumption of hostilities and in the loss of hope for a peaceful…

Should the U.S. Military Promote Democracy?

The U.S. military doesn’t exactly have a perfect record when it comes to promoting democracy. Too often national interests – security, oil – have been given primacy over democratic values and human rights. The legacy of the Bush administrations has severely tainted the phrase democracy promotion and lead to a justified suspicion about promoting democracy by military force. However, the idea that the U.S. military should play a leading role in promoting democracy is far from…

People Power is Alive and Well (by Srdja Popovic)

I thought I would share this optimistic blog post on the effect of the 'global people power revolution' in 2011 by Srdja Popovic - Executive director at Centre for Applied Nonviolent Actions and Strategies.

"Even as critics discuss and argue over the success or failure of these protests, I nevertheless see a paradigm shift. People have been awakened and are understanding power and obedience not in monolithic terms – where the head of state has top-down control that should…

What is life like for ordinary Afghans in Helmand?

This question is hard to answer. Because the news we receive about the situation in Afghanistan is thoroughly limited by the difficulties of portraying life outside the zones controlled by ISAF and the Afghan authorities. Western journalists’ ability to report on the situation on the ground in the areas where the fighting takes place is very limited, and when they do enter these areas their reporting is depended upon the ISAF forces which guarantee…

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. Each of these practices and all other forms of violence against women, are horrific-as well as criminal-and must be condemned. This is not an…

Bahrain and the responsibility of the international community

Since February 2011 Bahrain has been the scene of ongoing protests. Protesters are calling for greater freedom and democracy, respect for human rights and the removal of the country’s self-imposed monarchy. So far the regime has responded with harsh crackdowns, imprisonments, and systematic torture. The regime proclaims that it is implementing reforms, but so far this has not happened. It even employs a number of western PR-companies to shape the international public opinion of the…

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Elaine Massacre & the Struggle to Remember, with Nan Woodruff

The massacre in rural Elaine, Arkansas was one of the most violent episodes of 1919's Red Summer of racist confrontations, but it also remains one of the least-known. In this talk with historian Ted Widmer, Penn State's Professor Nan Woodruff explains the causes and how it fits in to the post-World War I context. Why are people still reluctant to speak about this massacre? How should we remember this dark chapter in American history?

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

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?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria.
