Do PCDN gender/legal experts have any thoughts on the Dominique Strauss-Kahn rape & criminal probe?

Posted on July 4, 2011 at 9:00am 4 Comments

Do our gender/legal experts have any thoughts on the Dominique Strauss-Kahn rape charges, and criminal proceeding?


The silence that follows a rape is a quiet fear. Especially when a powerful, wealthy aristocrat is implicated.


I could be wrong, but my understanding of the events surrounding the rape of a hotel maid by Dominique Strauss-Kahn  (DSk) has been moving from a criminal proceeding to a political “wag the dog” made for TV drama.

Imagine a world where every community has an economic & culture incubator/social innovation centre.

In 2000 Peace & Conflict Planners became a pioneer in developing business incubators for private sector clients. We could immediately recognise the potential for these projects and centres for humanitarian development application.

For those of you not yet familiar with the term or concept, Business incubators are programs designed to accelerate the successful development of entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services, developed and… Continue

Hi John,

Are you willing to help me foster world peace?

I'm starting a new venture you may be interested in. It's called the Global Business Network for Peace and Prosperity and you can check it out at -- I'd love to get  your opinion about the idea and know if you would would be interested in being an advisor, or helping in any way.

Hi John, I have added you on skype, so hopefully we can connect there at some point and talk about partnerships, ideas and such...I appreciate any feedback you might have on my project.

thanks again, and we will be in touch

Hello John, thanks for voting, going to the Global Media forum in a couple of weeks and hope to get more votes - I will also create other questions. 

I see that you are also in the "innovation" side of the field and really resonated with many things on your PCP website.  It is very interesting work you do, have you heard of, they are a foundation that looks to fund innovation in the field.  I think they are a good resource for us.

I am working on creating a framework that applies social marketing to conflict and peacebuilding -should be finished by the fall, I have various projects that I have developed. reaching different target groups in different countries.  I have sent them to potential partners that have shown interest, I think one of the problems which you must know is obtaining funding for a new type of intervention. I am curious what kind of partnership you were thinking of,  for me the ideal situation is working as a social marketing consultant for NGO's that are already working with a target group, but want to increase impact and also use multi-channel approach to social change.  I also really would like to see as much local capacity used as possible.

In anycase, I think we should talk, I like what you guys do and wonder how you would see a partnership (how does that work for PCP?

thanks for your interest, Monica
