By Steven Youngblood, director, Center for Global Peace Journalism

A friend and colleague recently wrote me and asked if I, as an advocate for peace, was discouraged by the avalanche of violence that seems to be engulfing mankind.

Gaza: Time to take sides

The news out of Gaza has been horrendous, overwhelming, tragic, heart-breaking. Death upon death. Destruction after destruction. Loss of life; losses for families, communities, the human race. It is easy to feel rage and horror, depression and defeat. Will the violence ever end?

  • In Gaza,…

Ok I'll Ask: What's Rule of Law?

I am sure many working in conflict resolution have heard of the term Rule of Law, perhaps its connection to the United States Institute of Peace, but are not really sure what it means.

Or, perhaps you were just waiting for someone to come around and provide the answer proactively :)

 

Well, here you go, courtesy of USIP:

How do you get your mediation clients to. . . ?

The latest blog from the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation, available here, discusses the tendency of mediators to want their clients to get somewhere.  So they try to get them somewhere.  The transformative approach recommends that we abstain from trying to get clients to do anything.

Cartographies of Time: Part I

cartographies-time-I

Jonny Miller & Dorothy Sanders

This is the first post in a two-part series on the cartographies time.

The Age of Outrospection: why ‘adventurous empathy’ might be the most essential quality of civilization

Jonny Miller

Imagine for a moment that you are reading or listening to a story so intensely that you forget yourself and step into the shoes of the storyteller. You see what they saw, hear what they heard, and feel what they felt.
