    In April 2004, the United States suffered more casualities in Iraq than during the entire period of declared hostilities last year. Almost every aspect of American occupation remains controversial. Has the removal of Saddam Hussein helped the United States in its war on terror?

How does the invasion and occupation appear to people living in other parts of the world, especially the Middle East

  9. Deprivation, Violence, and Identities: Mapping Contemporary World Conflicts

    Jenkins, J. Craig; Gottlieb, Esther; Kukielka-Blaser, Joanna; Sikainga, Ahmad; Spaulding, Frank; Stephan, Halina
    With the collapse of the Soviet Union, many anticipated the advent of a “new world order” of global capitalism, or even an “end to history,” implying that conflicts based on ideology and competing national interests and identities would lose their political relevance in the post-Cold War era. Quite to the contrary, the 1990s saw an upwelling of ethnic and religious violence in locations as disparate as the former Yugoslavia, Central Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East. Prior to the events of 9/11, the structure of international relations had still made it possible to imagine that such conflicts had local roots and were thus exclusively of...

  10. Protest Music As Responsible Citizenship

    Belafonte, Harry; Near, Holly; Johnson Reagon, Bernice; Seeger, Pete
    Protest Music As Responsible Citizenship was a special event that studied how music helps to construct the political consciousness of a nation, how songs mobilize thousands of people around issues affecting American life, and how music addresses the role of America in the global context.

  14. The Dark Side of Globalization

    Hashamova, Yana; Stephan, Halina
    A recent CIA report estimates that between 45,000 and 50,000 women and children are brought to the United States every year under false pretenses and are forced to work as prostitutes, abused laborers or servants. More than 700,000 people all around the world are trafficked every year for the purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor. Besides being a human rights issue, trafficking in human beings is a public health concern due to the widespread infection of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Additionally, it is a transnational organized crime and a socioeconomic issue. In Eastern Europe, a recognized “supply” and “demand” region, the practice is fed by economic disparity, corruption,...

  15. Religion, Secrecy and Security: Religious Freedom

    Urban, Hugh
    Mershon is funding a small conferenceon the topic of religion, secrecy and security in a global context that will offer an explicitly comparative, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach to the problems of secrecy and religion. The scholars involved will be drawn not only from the field of religious studies, but also from political science, sociology, law, anthropology and communications. Tentatively proposed for Autumn 2003, the conference will involve an intensive discussion of papers submitted by twelve participants and two public keynote lectures for the University community at large. The conference will address the following key questions: Why do some religious traditions insist that certain aspects of their beliefs and practices remain secret and...
