ABUJA BOMB ATTACK VICTIMS’ NAMES

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

The sordid, abominable bombing of a UN office in Nigeria by demonic jihadists claimed the lives of truly ennobled souls who were doing their sterling missions in Africa. A very shocking news indeed, as the jihadists have shown their total numbness and…

GOVERNANCE IS KEY TO DISASTER-CONFLICT INTERFACE



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



We have been experiencing worldwide the upswings in disaster-conflict interface.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) experts are of the opinion… Continue

CHALLENGE TO ARABS: BUILD STRONG FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS!

CHALLENGE TO ARABS: BUILD STRONG FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS!

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

The Arab Spring has revealed the chasm that divides the youth and older generations in the Middle East & North Africa or MENA. The development gains across the MENA has been very uneven to say the least, with state weaknesses singled out as the greatest bottlenecks to prosperity.

 

Beyond the surface however lies even greater realities about…

Is mediation ready for its close-up?

The community mediation field can feel vaguely Benjamin Button-esque -- simultaneously old and young.  While mediation itself has been around in some form since time immemorial, the community mediation movement is only in its 40's.  Which makes us a kid, as far as movements and professions go.  In that sense, maybe we're getting in on the ground floor of the next big thing.

The crisis was so damaging it was coined “the Great Recession” and there was much comparison of the recession to the Great Depression of the 1930s in the mainstream media. However, what many failed to do was an in-depth analysis of both the Great Depression and the Great Recession, to compare and contrast to two. Thus, this article will be a…

Effective aid: A matter of faith?

The “beast” had eaten all of the chickens.

That is why the income-generating activity undertaken by this small group in Malawi had not yet seen any profit, they explained. This is also why the group wanted to abandon chicken-rearing in favor of installing a paraffin pump, something that would require much less upkeep, inputs, and security.

What would it take for you to fund this youthful, energetic, but inexperienced group again?

A little faith? Or a lot for that…
