On Municipal Elections in Lebanon and the Prospects of Change

[Map showing all municipalities in Lebanon. Image by rarelibra via Wikipedia]

In a few weeks’ time, Lebanon’s fourth round of municipal elections since 1998 are scheduled to be held. This event highlights three key and interrelated challenges facing the country. The first is whether the ruling political elite will actually decide to hold municipal elections. If held, the second challenge concerns whether elected council members will adhere to a plan of action that addresses people’s local needs. The third challenge is getting people to vote for those who will serve them rather than those who will represent the interests of the political establishment. These issues are interlinked. The decisions of political elites regarding holding elections are ...

فلسطين-إسرائيل: تفكيك الاستعمار الآن والسلام لاحقاً

[المصدر موقع جوجل]

افترضت عملية السلام المشوّهة بين الفلسطينيين والإسرائيليين أن ثمة حلاً للصراع وسلاماً قريباً. ولكن ترى هذه المقالة ضرورة في عكس هذه المقاربة والفرضية البسيطة وربما الساذجة من أجل الوصول إلى حلول عملية وواقعية. ماذا لو أشارت الفرضية الأساسية للعملية السلمية إلى أن الصراع الفلسطيني-الإسرائيلي هو صراع طويل الأجل ودائم وربما غير قابل للحل؟ ماذا تعني هذه الفرضية الجديدة للخيارات والتدخلات السياسية الخارجية، وماذا تعني للاستراتيجيات الفلسطينية والإسرائيلية؟ لا تُعتبر أسئلة كهذه مجرد ترف فكري أو فانتازيا فكرية - كما قد يقول البعض - وإنما هي أسئلة ناشئة بسبب تعقيدات ديناميكيات الصراع وحسابات المصالح والحقائق على الأرض والخلل البنيوي في ميزان القوى. من دون أدنى شك، فإن السلام ...

Pro-AKP Media Figures Continue to Target Academics for Peace

[Protest against the imprisonment of four Academics for Peace, Bogazici University, Istanbul, 18 March 2016.]

On 22 March 2016, Yıldıray Oğur, a pro-government media figure, wrote a column targeting the Academics for Peace, Bosphorus/Boğaziçi University, the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), and Jadaliyya, among others.  The piece problematically conflates terrorism with Academics for Peace, and blatantly asserts that signatory academics manipulate facts. At the same time, the author appears to obscure the fact that after the Suruç bombing on 20 July 2015, the ruling party AKP, together with Turkish nationalist party MHP, blocked a parliamentary investigation on the ISIS-led suicide bombing in Suruç. And in fact, only one month before the Suruç bombing, on 16 June ...
