How to End the South Sudan Conflict

Author Rebecca Hamilton did not want to call the crisis in South Sudan a “civil war”–not yet, at least. But in this clip below we discuss what it will take to bring a near and long term political solution to the desperate situation there.

Reluctant innovators are go!

It’s been a busy few months as our new book – “The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator” – has been taking shape. We’ve been finalising chapter contributions, working on the introduction, sorting out cover and chapter designs, doing last minute copy-editing, building a new website, keeping Kickstarter supporters up-to-date, and pulling in book endorsements.

Spirituality, being human, and how to change the world.

“Despite all of the ghastliness in the world, human beings are made for goodness. The ones that are held in high regard are not militarily powerful, nor even economically prosperous. They have a commitment to try and make the world a better place”Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“Work. Life. Balance”. An interview with Voice America

Over the past few years I’ve given a fair few interviews, and have been grateful for the continued interest and enthusiasm from others for our work. Most interviews have focused on combinations of my time working in Africa, my technology interests, or the evolution and development of FrontlineSMS.

UN Plaza: The Other Conflict in Sudan

In this edition of UN Plaza, I talk to Maggie Fick of the Enough Project about the tenuous peace between Sudan and Southern Sudan.  We talk about Maggie's new report on Abyei, a disputed border region that could be a flash point for renewed conflict ahead of the likely secession of southern Sudan, and about a divide in the Obama administration in how to approach Sudan.  Check it out.  

UN Plaza: Coup in Honduras

In this edition of UN Plaza, I interview Peter Hakim of the Inter-American Dialogue.  Peter discusses the origins of the coup in Honduras, the status of the negotiations to return the deposed President and what the United States and international community can do to keep the peace.  In the segment below, Peter offers his thoughts on what the coup in Honduras may say about the stability of other countries in Latin America.

UN Plaza: Ban at 2 1/2 Edition

Jacob Heilbrunn and I take our disagreements to the small screen.  In this diavlog, we discuss Heilbrunn's recent criticism of Ban in Foreign Policy and my explanation of why that criticism is unfair.  We then venture into a few other topics, like Republicans' detachment from their realist roots and, of course, the untimely death of Michael Jackson.  Enjoy!
