Pathetic! This is what I can say of the latest 0.8% growth for the Eurozone during the 1st quarter of 2011. The figure seems to echo the growth for Greece during the same period, of 0.8% growth in growth domestic product or GDP.


As I’ve been saying for a couple of decades now, based on a pattern that was started from 1990 onwards yet, Europe is flat on…

A letter from Cape Town to South African actress Charlize Theron

Dear Charlize:


How’s the family? Any good Hollywood meltdowns lately, or other celebrity dirt?


As I promised at our last meeting over cocktails in Malibu, I’m writing to fill you in on my visit to your homeland, South Africa.


Here in Cape Town, I’ve been received like a long lost brother by my colleagues at the University of Cape Town, where I’ve delivered a few lectures and met with communications professors about peace journalism. I…

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…

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
