More > the NGO ‘Save the Children’. Amid efforts by European countries to repatriate children, the figures underline the scale and difficulty of the problem to evacuate the children. Children who lived under Isis have witnessed appalling acts of brutality, including beheadings, and may have been left with physical injuries and psychological needs from years of conflict and repression.

By describing the attitudes, actions, and beliefs of major Shi’ite clerics, Dr. Terrill underscores a set of worldviews...< Less

Despite a commissioned officer focus, many of OEMA’s talent management principles generalize to any labor force...< Less
