    The showdown in Cairo

    Par
    By Alexander Görlach, editor of German online magazine The European. Egyptians are freeing themselves from the yoke of despotism. One can only hope that they can avoid another authoritarian reign: the Muslim Brotherhood is positioning itself as a vital alternative to Mubarak's regime. The end of dictatorship does not automatically imply the advent of freedom.

    Tunisia: The Anatomy of Revolt

    Par | 1 recommandé
    The reign of Zine Al Abidin Ben Ali and its subsequent demise reflect two defining principles in human political behaviour. On the one hand, the average person values safety and security over freedom. On the other, injustice and dispossession create intolerable dissonance in the human psyche which the individual must address first by understanding its causes and the alternative approaches to its resolution, then by identifying and eliminating the specific barriers to change or reframing them into something else (see Don Edward Beck and Christopher Cowan, Spiral Dynamics, pp. 6-7).

    The Bemba trial at the International Criminal Court: ersatz justice?

    Par | 1 recommandé
    The scales of the atrocities committed in central Africa over the last two decades is unmatched by any other conflict since World War Two, if only in the number of deaths. The Democratic Republic of Congo in particular has seen millions of people being massacred, raped, maimed, dying of diseases in insalubrious refugees camps and losing everything that made them human beings. Congo is an ongoing genocide. The reasons to the never-ending violence, devastating in a country already striped to the bones, are numerous. From the conveniently illegal mineral trade to the political factions trying to get their share of power, there is not one solution to end it. But there is one demand that unite all Congolese people: Justice.
