Mutuality in Interpersonal Conflict

Cinnie Noble- When we are in conflict, our experience of it is not something we are always able to articulate. What is really going on forus, to what we are reacting, what we are attributing to ‘the other person’ and so on are often clouded with our…

Trans-local Peace-building among the Samburu and Pokot in Kenya

Introduction

Pastoralists’ communities living in Northwestern Kenya have for years been engulfed in a vicious cycle of violence always characterized by cattle raids and highway banditry leading to immense loss of lives of young men (morans), women and children. For the Pokot living in East Pokot district in Baringo County and the Samburu living in Samburu West district in Samburu County, violence emerged in 2005 with the Kanampiu Massacre where 31 Samburu and 11 Pokot perished.…

Is the press obligated to report hate speech?

NOTE: This was an editorial column that I sent last week to the Kansas City Star, my hometown newspaper. I have not heard back from them, so I'm assuming that they are not going to publish it. This is no big surprise since the columnn below is pretty critical of a piece published by the Star about a member of the Phelps family/Westboro Baptist Church. For the uninitiated, this is the "Christian" church that hates just about everyone, and has even picketed funerals of gays and servicemen.…

Letting the snark flow

Does snark among aid bloggers go too far? Do aid workers just need and deserve to let off steam? Or does the language we use matter, because it either closes down or opens up dialogue, especially with our partners?
