Revolt: The Struggle for Bread

 “Break my heart but don’t come near my bread,” goes an old Arabic proverb. Failure to observe it has often come at a high political price.



Just ask Tunisian president Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, who has now fled.

For weeks his countrymen had protested against high unemployment, endemic corruption and political repression. They also decried the high cost of staple food items such as wheat, sugar and milk, whose prices rose about 25 percent in the first week of…

Stuff expat aid workers like: Looking down on academics

Among the many unique features of expat aidworkers is that they know *everything* about the country they are working in. 'Everything' often meaning all the nitty-gritty political gossips that emerge every day about, say, the new minister of health, the president’s daughter or that really big aid project by that really important donor agency. Throw in some local gossip told by…

What was the human impact of shortfalls in relief funding in Darfur?

In the current context of economic crisis and severe cuts in government expenditure, the case for aid expenditure has been under increasing pressure. As IDS’ UK Public Opinion Monitor found late last year, a majority of the UK public believe that aid should be cut to help deal with the UK budget deficit.

External governance in the West Balkans and Eastern neighbour states

 

 

The extended or external EU governance as a transformative linkage policy in fact has been based on the mechanisms of “regulatory boundary” (policy) and “organizational boundary” (institution). The regulatory boundary covers the specific policy areas, addressed by the agreements, legal obligations and modalities through which compliance is monitored. The organizational boundary means those…

Government of Settlers: Evictions in East Jerusalem

Evictions and house demolitions are a growing humanitarian concern for Palestinians living in East Jerusalem, says the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).



The consequences for families can be devastating: In addition to losing their homes, their main source of physical and economic security, families are faced with high legal bills, fines and charges, including the cost of their own eviction.



Jerusalem Municipality says it has the right to…

SET YOUR ANNUAL GOALS FOR 2011

Erle Frayne D. Argonza





2011 has already started, and it began with an ambience of all-time high optimism across Asian countries. In my beloved country Filipinas, the Hope index measured an incomparable 89%, or that Filipinos are of the predominant hopeful mood that all will be well for their respective lives.



To start the year right, it would be best for each and every one of us to set our goals for the year. On the informal level of the lifeworld, there… Continue

Burning for Revolution: A Tribute to Muhammad Al Bouazizi

While I don't think I'll ever be hopeless enough to burn myself alive, I can't help but think that I am not so different from Muhammad Al Bouazizi. I, along with millions of educated young men and women throughout the world, are sick and tired of tyranny, injustice, under-employment, and despair.



If only Mr. Bouazizi had lived to see the 'fruits' of his desperate yet courageous actions. The Jasmine Revolution is likely to inspire other upheavals in the region, if not the world. If a… Continue

Confessions of a Recovering Neocolonialist on Martin Luther King Day

Harare, 2002. The word came. Cash is in the banks. The three colleagues I was standing near at the time and I quickly jumped in the car to get downtown to Standard Chartered as soon as possible.



It was my first “real job” in the development sector after graduate school. I knew enough to know how little I knew, and little else.



The conversation in the car from the office to Nelson Mandela Avenue inevitably turned to the growing inequality between our corporate aid agency… Continue

The average rate of execution is one person hanged every eight hours since the beginning of the year, a rights group monitoring the Islamic republic says.

"The Iranian judiciary is on an execution binge orchestrated by the intelligence and security agencies," Aaron Rhodes, a spokesman for the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, has said.

A statement by the New York-based group said at least 47 prisoners had been hanged since January 1, including a reported Kurdish…
