Harvard International Review • Spring, 2009 • AFRICA

About Child Soldiers in PLA

The presence of child soldiers at the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Cantonment has attracted sufficient attention for the public debate. National and international organizations are lobbying for the safe landing of this critical issue with a view that these child soldiers may turn out to be a constant source of militancy in future which may permanently jeopardize the peaceful social transformation process in Nepal. Others are of the opinion that keeping children in the Cantonment is against… Continue

Money. What we know about it. What we’ve learned about it. What we do about it. How we act around it. Getting conscious around money is well worth it.

Here’s one of many suggestions: get a conscious credit card. I laughed out loud when I saw the ad.

The role of the International Community in Kosovo in a Globalization Context

In these recent years Kosovo was part of a process building a new society and a future for all communities. This process was charged by the international community, as a neutral and main actor, leaving in one way out the local leaders.

Kosovo is not an island, to be isolated from the world. The history of deeply division started in a fragmentation process after the cold war, which happened in former communist countries, where some states failed, especially in Eastern Europe. Ideas and… Continue
