  18. Truth, Trust Time -- Journey from Conflict

    I have just returned from Colombia. A beautiful country, with an ugly decades old conflict.

    Tuesday, December 16, 2014
  19. An inspirational vision made plain in a declaration;

  20. A practical plan for that declaration, laid out in an integrated set of goals, targets and indicators;

  21. Adequate means to implement the plan and a renewed global partnership for development;

  22. A framework to monitor and review implementation to ensure promises made become promises delivered.

  23. To bring about a truly universal transformation of sustainable development, the Secretary-General's report makes a number of key recommendations, including the necessity to commit to a universal approach; to integrate sustainability in all activities; to address inequalities in all areas; to ensure that all actions respect and advance human rights; to address the drivers of climate change and its consequences; to base the analysis in credible data and evidence; to expand the global partnership for means of implementation to maximum effect; and to anchor the new compact in a renewed commitment to international solidarity.

    The report identifies six essential elements to frame and reinforce sustainable development:

  24. Dignity - to end poverty and fight inequalities; [para 67]

  25. People - to ensure healthy lives, knowledge, and the inclusion of women and children; [para 69]

  26. Prosperity - to grow a strong, inclusive, and transformative economy; [para 72]

  27. Planet - to protect our ecosystems for all societies and our children; [para 75]

  28. Justice - to promote safe and peaceful societies, and strong institutions; [para 77]

  29. Partnership - to catalyse global solidarity for sustainable development. [para 80]

  30. The importance of enabling civil society participation is highlighted in the report

    Several paragraphs in the report draw attention to the need to ensure strong participation of civil society, including:

    para 78: An enabling environment under the rule of law must be secured for the free, active and meaningful engagement of civil society, and advocates reflecting the voices of women, minorities, LGBT groups, Indigenous Peoples, youth, adolescents and older persons.

    para 123: We must establish effective modalities for multi-stakeholder cooperation and sharing the costs for Research, Development, Demonstration and Diffusion for new technologies across all stakeholders: public, private, civil society, philanthropic, and other sectors, inclusive of indigenous knowledge.

    para 129: Executive institutions, parliaments and the judiciary will need the capacity to perform their functions in this endeavour. Also, institutions of civil society must have the capacity to perform their critical, independent role.

    para 145: If we are to succeed the new agenda must become part of the contract between people, including civil society and responsible business, and their governments, national and local. [...] Empowered civil society actors, through action and advocacy, must rally to the cause, and contribute to a sustainable, equitable, and prosperous future.

    para 149: National accountability: It would be built on existing national and local mechanisms and processes, with broad multistakeholder participation, including national and local governments, parliaments, civil society, science, academia and business.

    A call to action

    "The stars are aligned for the world to take historic action to transform lives and protect the planet," the Secretary-General states at the conclusion of Section 1 of the report. "I urge Governments and people everywhere to fulfill their political and moral responsibilities. This is my call to dignity, and we must respond with all our vision and strength." [para 25]

    The final report will be available in all six UN languages by 31 December 2014.

    In early January 2015, the Secretary-General will formally present the report and further discuss it with Member States.

Contested Terrain: Reflections with Afghan Women Leaders

Thursday, October 30, 2014
Author: 
Sally L. Kitch

Contested Terrain: Reflections with Afghan Women Leaders by Sally L. Kitch (University of Illinois Press, 2014)

Sally L. Kitch explores the crisis in contemporary Afghan women's lives by focusing on two remarkable Afghan professional women working on behalf of their Afghan sisters. Kitch's compelling narrative follows the stories of Judge Marzia Basel and Jamila Afghani from 2005 through 2013, providing an oft-ignored perspective on the personal and professional lives of Afghanistan's women. Contending with the complex dynamics of a society both undergoing and resisting change, Basel and Afghani speak candidly--and critically--of matters like international intervention and patriarchal Afghan culture, capturing the ways in which immense possibility alternates and vies with utter hopelessness. Strongly rooted in feminist theory and interdisciplinary historical and geopolitical analysis, Contested Terrain sheds new light on the struggle against the powerful forces that affect Afghan women's education, health, political participation, livelihoods, and quality of life. The book also suggests how a new dialogue might be started in which women from across geopolitical boundaries might find common cause for change and rewrite their collective stories.
