World Development Report (WDR) 2011 - a breakthrough or not?

While the World Bank often produces benchmark writing, I have come to expect their contributions to mostly reflect their specific "business needs" as much as the reality out there. This report appears to be different - in a very positive way. Actually I am tempted to believe that this report is a breakthrough for the discourse among the big and established players in global security. Here is my take. I will be grateful for your views ...

 

The WDR 2011 points out that 9 out of…

COÑO POWER IN AQUINO GOVERNMENT

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Coño kid Noynoy Aquino is now president of the Philippines for almost a year. During the campaign period yet, I was already apprehensive of the handiwork of coño operators who were born with a ‘golden spoon’. They are those kinds who went to school with the purpose of displaying wealth and flashy cars, and were subjects of my scorn as a college student.

 

Just recently, P-Noy bought a sports car worth millions of pesos. Though…

Ivory Coast after Gbagbo: The Road to Peace and Security

Ibrahim Al-bakri Nyei

pericle925@yahoo.com

 

After intense international political and diplomatic pressures, followed by sustained military operations by his opponents, Ivory Coast’s long time political icon and defiant strongman, Laurent Gbagbo, has met an unfortunate political end. Gbagbo’s calculations probably ended up in the negative quadrant of the plane. He allowed himself to end a long history of so many years of…

It Would Be an Honor

Review of "Honor For Us: A Philosophical Analysis, Interpretation, and Defense" By William Lad Sessions, Continuum.

William Lad Sessions is a philosophy professor at Washington and Lee University in Virginia. I was once a philosophy student at the University of Virginia. Both schools have honor codes for their students. I experienced UVA's honor code as one of the most thrilling discoveries of my life. W&L's has inspired Sessions to write a book.

I realize that nowadays…

If Cairo Came to Kabul

Before Tahrir Square happened almost nobody predicted that President Hosni Mubarak would be forced out of office by a movement that didn't pick up a gun. Had President Barack Obama expected that outcome, he might have publicly backed Mubarak's departure before, rather than after, Mubarak stepped down.

Obama can be seen as overcompensating for that performance in Libya, but there he is placing faith in weapons. Anybody can do that. Egypt still has a long way to go on its path to a just…

Peace Journalism in Uganda: Government Threats, Advice for Peace Journalists

Government threats freeze Ugandan journalists



From website, The Daily Monitor, April 18: "Journalists are encamped at Kasangati Police Post, afraid of moving out to cover the running battles after one military officer told them that “shooting a journalist by mistake is not a crime,” according to our reporter on the scene, Mr Gerald Bareebe."

Got ‘Em: An Evaluation Story

A wannabe hot-shot technical advisor, I had just enough knowledge to be useful and just enough naïveté to be dangerous.



I was new to the country office and eager to demonstrate my monitoring and evaluation (M&E) prowess.



The task at hand was completing a mid-term review of a “problematic” implementing partner whose work focused on HIV and food security programming. There was no baseline, but go for it.



Oh, and this particular country office needed to put…

France Banning the Burka: an affront to Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité

By Lucy Emmerson

 

A few days ago, France’s ban on the face-covering Islamic veil came into effect, and all I could think was ‘what they hell were they thinking?’ 

 

Personally, I abhor the veil, believing it dehumanises its wearers, denying not only their femininity, but their very…

CHINESE MAFIA UNTOUCHABLES IN AQUINO’S PREX INCUMBENCY?

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Is the Philippines completely free from infestation, manipulation and control by Chinese Triad gangland syndicates during the incumbency of president Noynoy Aquino? Or is PH in fact hopelessly a free zone for the unhampered operations by Triad underworld operators?

 

This country already underwent a traumatic experience of being ruled at the top by local mafia godfather Erap Estrada and his underlings who in turn were co-partners…
