Turning Down the Heat

Posted on August 19, 2011 at 12:43pm 1 Comment


Shouts wafted uphill to where my Rwandan Search for Common Ground (SFCG) colleagues and I were chatting with a group of women outside the office of the Sector Executive Secretary.  They were waiting to be paid for their labor on a section of road. At this point I had been in Rwanda working for the NGO as an international intern for about six weeks, and I felt I was getting used to the Rwandan style of dealing with bureaucracy. The Executive…

As an American, it is, honestly, difficult to imagine a country where there just isn’t enough land. In many ways, Manifest Destiny (that oh so flawed theory that Americans had the right to all the land coast to coast) is nonetheless subconsciously instilled in me.  Some residue of the…

Our van rumbles up the dirt roads with ruts running deep from the rainy season. Children seem to be the first to spot us and call out; many even chase after us. In the rear view mirror you can see them waving and yelling; filling up the frame with arms…

I am trying to promote the Arc plan and and a discussion at;


The Arc

 The arc A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State produced by the Rand Corporation. It is a giant leap in the right direction into finding a peaceful solution in the Palestinian-Israeli crisis. It is a ten year plan to develop the West Bank one day connecting it to Gaza. It addresses many of the problems the people of Palestine face in forming a viable state. Only with a prospers Palestinian society that resembles the society of the State of Israel will the people of both societies have any real security. 

They spent more than 3 million dollars and four years in the development of this plan. It is a thirty-three billion dollar plan over ten years that addresses the Palestinian issues of transportation, housing, education, commerce, justice and the contiguity of the State of Palestine. It is a very comprehensive plan creating a clear image of a much better way of life for the Palestinian people. Restoring their dignity and hope for a better future for their children is the best first steps towards peace.

This is the link to an 8 minute and 35 minute video outlining the Arc.The Arc: A Formal Structure For a Palestinian State | RAND 


Here is a link to the Rand Corporation’s web page to the Arc Reach Brief. There is a link to the full outline version of the Arc at the bottom of the page.

There is no way to peace, peace is the way. The Arc is the way for long term peace to become a reality in the Palestinian/Israeli crisis. The challenges are to make the Arc a reality that more people can see, as well as working out the full implementation of the Arc’s plan. The earlier more people get behind a plan like the Arc the sooner it could become a reality. Everyone should write to their elected representatives letting them know about the Arc and your support of the plan. Who could not support such a plan of a way to peace as the arc. Global Crier

Hi Elise! I saw some of your posts...I am finding the idea of inclusive security very interesting. Though I am a political science major, I have not studied much of international relations, but am now delving deeper into it, especially with development communication and refugee issues. May I friend you? I'd love to hear more about your work with the Institute for Inclusive Security, as well as your research areas.
