Responsibility to Protect Weighed Down by Misconceptions

From the U.S. Institute of Peace blog The Olive Branch. To see the post on the web site, click here.

By Jonas Claes

To the limited extent policymakers in Washington, D.C. are familiar with the Responsibility to Protect, the principle is frequently dismissed as “a U.N. thing” or “something the Canadians came up with.” Ever since the concept was first introduced in…

Capillary Philanthropy: Businesses, local NGOs, and the future of aid

I often find that aid blogs tend to criticize much, offer solutions too little. Orietta L’Abbate, CEO of AAE Australia Inc., shares her proposal for the future of aid.

What do you think? Could it work?

Large scale aid intervention in large scale disaster has shown its slowness and its inability to cooperate and effectively intervene in the Haiti 2010…

Africans Don't Mistrust Science, Just Bigotry Masquerading As Science

The English Guardian has an article entitled 'Epidemics breed public disorder and the breakdown of trust', indeed, 'violent mistrust' of scientists and politicians. The article mentions both the HIV pandemic and Haiti's current cholera epidemic.

Another Must Listen

Youth Development Is Security

Students shared in class debate, and in the privacy of their journals, that at the most basic level, gangs are a replacement for family.

Sustainable Masculinity - The New Male Paradigm

The Bad News:

Male social programming in the mainstream, has failed to keep up with changes in commerce, technology and the women’s equity movement. The trend is dangerous to everybody, even the planet.

Sporadic and haphazard attempts to develop a new male paradigm have lost momentum, manifesting in escalating teen violence in western countries. Hyper-masculinity is rising again promoted by graphic imagery in the ‘entertainment industry.’ Never before in humanity’s history… Continue
