Unsustainable Careers in Sustainable Development

Students passionate about building a better future are increasingly being asked to mortgage their own in return. Students share the growing burden of student debt across the country: The median level of indebtedness for a Master of Arts degree jumped from $38,000 in 2004 to $59,000 in 2012, after adjusting for inflation.

Negotiation, conflict, Mediation and ADR Teachers - Resource Share

At the ABA's DR conference in Miami, an initiative that had started the previous year turned into a tradition: Several dozen teachers offered each other use of their teaching materials to enhance each others' classrooms.

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Madness masquerades as rational-legal in today’s postmodern context. The fiasco over the collective bargaining issue in Wisconsin, a state in the USA, is strong evidence of the erasure of the boundary between madness and rationality.

Industrial relations modalities of the moment have already graduated to a higher ground since the early days of management science. During those ancient days—of the likes of Taylor, Fayol, Weber—it was still customary to… Continue

Encouraging Peace@Work

Imagine! Employees working collaboratively, addressing challenges, overcoming obstacles, being cordial and  an encouragement to each other.  No more watching your back or hurtful gossips.  No one is trying to bully, manipulate or get you.  Hey, you can even be vulnerable...  This is not a dream it is possible in most workplaces.

For the next 10 weeks my company is sponsoring a Peace@work initiative as part of our contribution to the global peace…

Aid Worker: First, Know Thyself

The following article was adapted from Faye Dresner’s article, “Leader: First Know Thyself.” As I read it, it occurred to me that the term leader could easily be replaced with [aid worker] and the message remain directly relevant. In many ways, all aid workers, whether the volunteer or director, act as leaders as we strive for the self-awareness to be……

What to do about blood minerals in the DR Congo.

I have may have spoken too hastily in the past regarding conflict resources in the DR Congo. My rage at the inherent abuse led me to think that boycotting and protesting companies was perhaps the best way to go. I realize now, that I was wrong. This is the wrong approach.

Over the past six years, I have delved into this subject more than any other and have even gone so far as to ban all products for my personal use if I didn't know EXACTLY where they came from and what…

Welcome to Cote D’Ivoire.

I arrived in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire, land of cacao and coffee, almost a week ago now. It’s not my first time in West Africa. I had been to Cote D’Ivoire in 2004, and during that time experienced the violence between pro-government militias and the French peacekeeping troops. At that time, military roadblocks were common along all roadways and made travel throughout the country incredibly…
