San Andrés en la mira

Entre tantas palabras, muchas veces, lo más importante es lo que nunca se menciona. En el caso de la disputa actual, mucho se habla de las pretensiones colombianas y nicaragüenses, pero nunca de las aspiraciones de quienes viven en el codiciado archipiélago de San Andrés, Providencia y Santa Catalina. El conflicto que ahora se está viviendo es un ejemplo de que lo que sea plantea mal, mal sale, y no es primera vez. Por ejemplo, hace casi ochenta años, en el 1933, Dinamarca y Noruega llevaron…See More

¿Rearmar a Costa Rica o desarmar al resto?

La preocupación por la escalante tensión entre Costa Rica y Nicaragua es real. La desigualdad de fuerzas es igualmente real. De allí se puede partir a dos caminos divergentes; ¿habría que rearmar a Costa Rica? o ¿habría que desarmar al resto de Centroamérica? Hoy día, la mayor amenaza a la seguridad nacional de los países centroamericanos son sus ejércitos. Lo vimos con el golpe de estado en Honduras, y lo veremos pronto en Guatemala. Es lo que estamos viviendo entre Costa Rica y Nicaragua…See More

¿Cómo pelear como buenos vecinos?

Si deseas guerra,prepárate para la guerra. Si deseas paz, prepáratepara la paz.Lo que se ha venido desarrollando entre Costa Rica y Nicaragua – no desde octubre, sino desde hace mucho tiempo – es una relación de vecinos que no está como debería estar. No sólo entre gobiernos, sino entre pueblos. El pantano de unos tres kilómetros cuadrados sí es uno de los temas que vienen llamándonos la atención, pero este asunto tiene varios meollos. Para poder construir una fuerte y sana relación de vecinos…See More

The Autistic Tale of Pariah States

Two former British colonies, one formerly «the rice bowl of Asia», another formerly «the breadbasket of Africa», Myanmar and Zimbabwe are today among the most destitute and isolated countries in the world. Time for a new approach?Narrowing MindsThe recent histories of Myanmar (the UN-recognized name) and Zimbabwe are heartbreaking testimonies to human inadequacy in dealing with conflict, subsequently producing vicious spirals of misery. As John Virgoe of the International Crisis Group observes…See More

Honduras: In Lieu of A Peace Process

Posted on July 23, 2009 at 9:00am 0 Comments

There are well-founded arguments to say that deposed president Manuel Zelaya has violated the Honduran constitution. I do not thereby imply that his illegal actions are entirely immoral. There are immoral actions that are not illegal, just as there are laws that are immoral. The Honduran constitution is a conservative one, and contains a number of questionable elements – like the one prohibiting presidential reelection.



Then, two wrongs have never made one right either. Seizing a…

We are all builders of peace: A constructive approach to gangs

Posted on June 14, 2009 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

On the eve of the inauguration of El Salvador’s new government on June 1, 2009, a communique appeared, emanating from the country’s two largest gangs. Totaling seven very well written pages, the communique is entitled «We are human beings with very pronounced faults and potentials that are generally ignored». Word up!



The letter was sent on behalf of thousands of Salvadoran gang members, commonly albeit mistakingly singled out for the bulk of crimes committed in the country,… Continue
