Apr 1, 2021 Violence & Security Fabiana Di Lorenzo, Adam Rolfe T.notes

Choosing to stop sourcing gold from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRAs) may be the easy option for refiners seeking to de-risk their supply chains, but it is not the responsible option.

The end of Myanmar’s semi-democratic experiment? Not yet. Making sense of 1st February

Mar 12, 2021 Violence & Security Stefano Ruzza T.notes

The Tatmadaw may still be satisfied enough with the semi-democratic regime it created and may want to return to it at some point – just after securing a suitable Commander-in-Chief and fixing some issues it is not entirely happy about.

La democrazia tra il voto e la piazza

Dec 31, 2020 Violence & Security Human Security

[IT] Indubbiamente il 2020 verrà ricordato come l’anno della pandemia globale, dei confinamenti e dello “stato di eccezione”. L’anno che sta per concludersi, però, è stato caratterizzato anche da importanti eventi politici, in primis le elezioni presidenziali negli Stati Uniti d’America. Ed è proprio dagli Stati Uniti che parte questo numero di Human Security. Se la vittoria di Joe Biden sembra far intravedere la “fine dell’era Trump” e, intuitivamente, nuova linfa per la promozione dell’ordine liberale a livello globale, nel suo articolo Gabriele Natalizia – docente di Scienza Politica e ricercatore presso la Sapienza Università di Roma – traccia la storia della risposta statunitense al “dilemma della democrazia” dalla Guerra fredda a oggi, delineando una soluzione di continuità tutt’altro che scontata nell’approccio strategico delle Amministrazioni Obama, Trump e, con tutta probabilità, Biden.

Ebola at the frontier: a new dimension of human security threat on the Uganda-DRC border

Dec 16, 2020 Violence & Security Jerome Ntege T.notes

Ebola created mental barriers between contaminated and ‘clean’ regions that raised national security concerns. These barriers stripped people of their identity – they became viruses themselves – and of their social ties, keeping families and communities apart.

Peacebuilding: who needs a model?

Nov 27, 2020 Violence & Security Élise Féron T.notes

Behind well-established and fixed peacebuilding ‘models’ there always lies the danger of normativity and of a lack of flexibility. Rather than a model, it seems much more promising to foreground a frame within which to design more reflexive, adaptative and respectful peacebuilding strategies.
