Bosnia and Herzegovina today – the view from Tuzla by Mirjana Kosic

Fifteen years on from the end of violent conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the consequences of war still exert a heavy influence over society. In the absence of a civic conception of state, the ethnicisation of society continues apace; leading many to describe today’s divisions as being as wide as at any point since 1995. Tuzla is home to some 180,000 citizens, including many displaced by the conflict of the early-nineties. In spite of the demographic turbulence that BiH has endured, Tuzla…

War And Peace - Prologue to Summer Sport & Peacebuilding Research

This post can also be seen at S&P's Blog.


One of my favorite „Sport and Peace“ stories is that of the football (soccer) match between German and British troops on Christmas Day in 1914, the first winter of what later would be christened the “Great War”. I’ve never read a detailed account of the match, but you have to wonder, don’t you, what was…

James Conolly: The Thinker and the Worker Are Manhood’s only Kings (1910)

Monarchy is a survival of the tyranny imposed by the hand of greed and treachery upon the human race in the darkest and most ignorant days of our history. It derives its only sanction from the sword of the marauder, and the helplessness of the producer, and its gifts to humanity are unknown…


As you are aware from reading the daily and weekly newspapers, we are about to be blessed with a visit from King George V.

Knowing from previous experience of…

Erle Frayne D. Argonza


Good morning from the Pearl of the Orient!


Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao, world’s best boxer pound-per-pound and the greatest boxer of the century, just defeated California’s prized fighter Mosley. The fight didn’t only highlight the prowess of the world’s best—and that best could extend to being the world’s top athlete today—but more importantly it heralded…

Support Killing People Or Lose Your Job

"Ban the bombers are afraid of a fight

"Peace hurts business and that ain't right

"How do I know? I read it in the Daily News"

--Tom Paxton

PBS (the P stands for "Pure" I think) is concerned that if the U.S. government stops funding the war in Afghanistan, the U.S. economy will crash:

Non Completion of Manja Bridge is a Violation of Human Rights

Non Completion of Manja Bridge is a Violation of Human Rights

It's said that a right is not what someone gives you; it's what no one can take from you. Yet, in India especially in Karbi Anglong district of Assam basic human rights have somehow been taken from a vast section of the population. The campaign for Manja bridge is a clear violation and denial of Human Righs.

The welfare state model of the Indian Constitution emphasize the positive duty of the State to promote the welfare of… Continue

Prologue to Summer Research on Sport and Peacebuilding

Prologue to Research

As we all set out on our field research to diverse corners of the globe, I have been thinking about what aspects I am drawn to and what, on an individual level, I hope to observe over the course of my journey.

Two things have stood out to me in my preparations - partnerships and measurement. 

On partnerships, I owe this project and opportunity through Generations For Peace's partnership with Georgetown and their generosity. This type of… Continue

Manja Hidim Teron Bridge a struggle for 20 years- A Fact Sheet


The Manja Hidim Teron Village Bridge is a life line for 35 villages; more than 2000 children alone go to schools and colleges besides a number of people. The bridge is under construction for the last 20 years. We are sad to say that undue hardships are caused by the incomplete construction of the bridge. The villagers are completely cut off from the rest of the world when the temporary bamboo bridge gets…

The Taliban Shuffle – a transnational professional review

Kim Barker's book ‘The Taliban Shuffle: Strange days in Afghanistan and Pakistan’ is a highly recommended, accessible and thought-provoking read for everybody who works in the transnational, transient sphere of expatriate employment in developing countries or conflict zones. The book is less interesting if you are looking for factual information on post-9/11 ‘AfPak’, because most of Kim’s stories about the challenges of the international intervention (diplomatically phrased) have been…

Somaliland: Recognition Is Within Reach

Somaliland has fulfilled the legal requirements for statehood. The only element that prevents Somaliland from receiving recognition and enjoying all the benefits that flow from statehood are the political considerations of entities, which they are unable to control.

Below is an article published by Somaliland Press:

The 20th anniversary of Somaliland self-declaration as independent state will be on May 18th [2011]. Somaliland declared independence after the… Continue
