"Violent Extremism" -- narrative contributes to conflict escalation

We know the cycle of violence, many of us have spent decades intervening in interpersonal, intergroup and international conflicts working to free conflicting parties from the deadly trap of conflict escalation.   We know that during escalation, aggrieved parties feel justified in striking back, are more easily inclined to use coercion and higher levels of violence, support breaking off communications between/among parties and rely instead on rumor and stereotyping, and replace any known…

5 Culturally Violent Cliches You Can Ditch Tomorrow

  1. “Boys will be boys”.  Much has been written about this one, but times have not changed enough.  Often deployed as a defense against poor male behavior, what a shame that we still hear it as a defense against harassment (as in the case of Schwarzenegger) or even alleged violent rape (as in the case of former IMF head Strauss Kahn).  So it becomes clear how dangerous this one is for women.  After all, if this is just the behavior driven by biology, how can we expect any more?  The…

I took part in Al-Jazeeera English “Can a social network fight ‘extremism’?”

A new project aims to counter ‘violent extremism’ by connecting former self-identified extremists with ‘at risk’ youths.

Self-identified former “extremists” and survivors have formed a social network aimed at helping young people avoid political violence and gang culture. The Against Violent Extremism network believes that radicalization is less of a religious and ideological issue…

Violent encounters with random strangers…

This morning on the way to work, I came across a situation and was left thinking of what responses were possible.

An obviously drunk man of about 30 carrying an open tall can of beer in his hand came up to a younger (maybe 16-18 year old) boy and started belligerently berating him on the subway in between stops. He threatened the boy that he would find and later kill him. That revenge is sweet. All sorts of angry banter. The boy sat quietly, looking down at his phone, earphones in,…

What was the human impact of shortfalls in relief funding in Darfur?

In the current context of economic crisis and severe cuts in government expenditure, the case for aid expenditure has been under increasing pressure. As IDS’ UK Public Opinion Monitor found late last year, a majority of the UK public believe that aid should be cut to help deal with the UK budget deficit. It seems likely that such sentiments are common in other aid-giving countries affected by the…

How does the return home from displacement camps affect child health? Evidence from Uganda

The first year of the post-conflict period is a very fluid and little understood period of human development, and very little is known about the determinants of health outcomes in the period immediately after a cease-fire is agreed. Millions of families are affected by conflict related displacement around the world, and it is in the immediate post-conflict period that they consider returning to their place of…

Exploring the Long-term Affects of Conflict on African Households

Despite the pervasiveness of civil wars in Africa, research on the welfare impact of conflicts is surprisingly scarce. Researchers working in Burundi with the MICROCON research programme have been following up participants of a national household survey carried out in 1998 in order to trace the dynamics of well being and civil war. The first findings, published today in the MICROCON Research Working Paper published today, entitled ‘… Continue
