Many Israelis find “educational” value in horrifying attacks, as long as they happen to others…
Following the terrorist attack in Norway, before the Israeli media had to reluctantly admit it was actually carried out by a Norwegian neo-Nazi, the media, aside from Haaretz, kept its readers in the dark about the killers’ pro-Israeli agenda, the comment section on the internet sites was filled not with expressions of horror and sadness, but with virulent attacks on Muslims…Continue

The eight goals set by the UN and 189 participating states out the 192 that are currently joined in the UN, all seek an increase in development throughout the world. The global aim of these goals is to reach a point where the world can…Continue
When I tell people I am researching sport and peacebuilding, it never fails that I get one of two responses – the confused look that usually signifies a predisposition to thinking of those two concepts as mutually exclusive or the sudden dawning of “oh that sounds cool!”
Throughout my summer research, the most important question I was asked, and asked frequently, was “why sports?” Despite its simplicity, this is really the question at the core of our research, the question…Continue
I am happy to announce the publication of Where There is No Government: Enforcing Property Rights in Common Law Africa. The book, published by Oxford University Press, is based on extensive field research on property rights in Ghana, Uganda and Kenya.

The murder spree in Norway was apparently the work of a Norwegian, not a group of foreigners, and for various other reasons the comparison is not exact.

A few years ago, the respected Cambridge scholar T J Winter, also known by his Muslim name of Abdal Hakim Murad, gave a fascinating lecture to Humanities staff and students at the University of Leicester. The title was "Islam and the threat of the West", turning on its head the more usual - then and now - "Islam and the threat to the West".
It was a novel approach, which, in a nutshell, illustrated that, historically, aggression has been directed more from Europe to the…Continue
