Now we know exactly how 'locally led' aid really is

The first Keystone Partner Survey is a ground-breaking initiative to measure the performance of northern NGOs. It summarises feedback from over 1,000 of their southern partners, who told the northern NGOs exactly what they thought about them. Because the data was quantified, the northern NGOs could benchmark their performance and pinpoint where they were doing well and where they should improve.

Africa: The Enslaved Continent

Over fifty years have passed since most African nations gained their independence. Since then, and despite the expenditure of over $1 trillion in aid, poverty has, according to the World Bank, nearly doubled. But, the idea of aid was to reduce poverty and close the gap in living standards, not let it get wider? CIA figures show over 485 million Africans in poverty, to which we can add 46 million who, according to the World Bank, will be driven into poverty by the recession. This makes a total… Continue

CHRYSANTHEMUM: JAPAN’S HUMAN FACE POST-CATASTROPHE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Good evening from the suburbs west of Manila!

 

Japan has begun to go back to normal life weeks after the catastrophe of quake-tsunami-nuke crash triad slammed Honshu and broke the hearts of Amaterasu’s scions. Amid the colossal maelstrom and seemingly ceaseless damages wrought, we observed the calm and sobriety displayed by the Japanese, a behavior that was exemplary to say the least.

 

We outsider-sympathizers…

Let's Hear It For Research! (Hip Hip...)

If anyone felt like asking me to talk (briefly) about my current research, this is what I would say (today at least):



The unique nature of mediation- mediators interpret and adapt the foundational elements to fit their unique style and practice as well as to each specific case makes it most appropriate for qualitative analysis to be used to study it.…

Mr John Katunga's talk on April 5, at Berkley Center, on Catholic Peacebuilding in East Africa

It appears like Mr John Katunga, my respected trainer in Peacebuilding paradigms at the West Africa Peacebuilding Institute (WAPI), Accra Ghana, will be addressing as a priority question, whether 'religiously-inspired peacebuilding (can) make a difference in Congo and East Africa'.

To me, the answer is a categorical YES! Truth is, 'religiously-inspired peacebuilding', if derived from a mind that is nourished by the Christian Truth, will necessarily draw from the teaching and life of…

Fordlandia-Henry Ford's engagement in Brazil and lessons for contemporary development debates

What I found fascinating was to read a book, set in the pre-World War II, pre-postwar reconstruction and pre-‘modern’ international development world, that yet tells a lot about the foundations of thinking about ‘development’. Or, more precisely, how powerful and persistent some of the assumptions made in the early years of the 20th century have been in influencing ideas, mindsets and attitudes towards international development. Reading Fordlandia is a great reminder of the many…

African states Must Review its Leadership Skills and Responsibilities

African states Must Review its Leadership Skills and Responsibilities

By Francis Okeny



Most African states must learn how to share responsibility in the new world order. While other civilizations that have engaged the continent over the centuries dedicated time and resources to study the African people. African countries have not put in place efforts to analyse and seek to understand their partners such as the USA, Europe, China and other emerging economies.

DRUG MULES AND GLOBAL CRIME

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Three (3) Filipinos were recently executed by the Chinese authorities for being caught transiting drugs for syndicate crime groups. Moralist quacks have celebrated them like heroes, which leaves me aghast over such hypocrisy, a quackery that suddenly rendered moot those legitimate questions regarding the inanities and evils of the drug trade.

 

Crime has been globalized, for how many decades we can only surmise. Gone were…

Israel: Laws of Hatred

Heated discussions take place every once in a while in Israel about the increasing waves of racial disIcrimination that have been invading the very structures of the Zionist Jewish entity. Despite the fact that the world has become a global village where cultures are exchanged on a daily basis, we observe an isolated ghetto in which Israel has imprisoned itself in order to apply the same heinous forms of racial discrimination practised by fascist and colonial regimes during the past…
