More > journalists – the shocking murder of journalist Javier Ortega, and his two travelling partners Paúl Rivas and Efraín Segarra, underlining this. Gender inequality also seems to be a major challenge in Ecuador and Colombia. According to the Amnesty International Report 2018, violence against women, particularly sexual violence, persisted in Colombia – as well as in Ecuador, as about 90% of Ecuadorian women who experience violence seem to be reluctant to take action against their perpetrator; because family problems are considered private matters in Ecuador. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in the South America, so that peace and harmony can be manifested in the region. Social challenges – such as crime, poverty and civil unrest – are also explored in this work.< Less

Nicaragua has been in chaos since April 2018, when what started as protests by students against Ortega’s social security reforms turned to mass violence. An estimated 500 civilians have been... More > killed since paramilitary forces began using weapons to control protests. The youngest victim was a one-year-old shot in the street as he held his father’s hand. Illegal detentions and political imprisonments have been estimated at over 1,200 since then; and over 30,000 Nicaraguans have fled the country. Economists estimate that more than 215,000 jobs have been lost since the beginning of the social uprising; leaving the tourism industry in ruins, which is among the country’s main source of income. To a large extent Ortega's policies are responsible for this human rights crisis; and the result of his refusal to receive aid from the international community. Hence this book endeavours to improve human rights and social equality in Nicaragua; so that peace and democracy can be manifested in this beautiful country again.< Less

More > Information Technology – Enabled Services (ITES) sectors in the global market, or the spectacular growth in cellular telephony, or the imminent dawn of India’s golden age, that is propelling India into the ranks of the world’s leading economies in the not – too – distant future.(Kochhar 2006). It is undeniable that, during the last fifteen years, India has made remarkable strides in raising living standards and reducing poverty as a result of wide – ranging reforms to liberalize and open up the economy.

More > 1964-85 military dictatorship in Brazil, when hundreds were killed or disappeared by a regime bent on wiping out a perceived communist threat – today’s Brazil being at risk of becoming a dictatorship again, with police violence, inhumane prison conditions and human rights abuses having increased dramatically; especially among the LGBT population: 277 LGBT people having been killed in 2018, the highest number since 1980.

Hence this book endeavours to improve human rights, democracy and social equality in Brazil; so that peace and harmony can be manifested in this beautiful country again.< Less

Having emerged from the ashes of the Third Reich, the FPÖ was founded in 1956 by Anton Reinthaller, a former Nazi functionary and SS officer, who was the inaugural leader of the Freedom Party of... More > Austria (FPÖ). Since then the FPÖ has orchestrated rule of law violations in Austria; including the violation of freedom of press, expression and of belief; as well as inciting hatred against immigrants and refugees. With national socialist offences by the FPÖ increasing in frequency, the FPÖ needs to improve and reinvent itself – also in view of links between the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings and the far-right Identitarian Movement in Austria (IBÖ). Otherwise the FPÖ must be made illegal; as it is Austria’s duty to combat the resurgence of neo-Nazi activities by way of law. Social challenges – such as abuse of power and social inequality – are also explored in this evidence-based study. It should also be noted, that the FPÖ Party’s contribution to global gender equality and global peacebuilding is absolute zero.< Less

More > campaign of mass rape by Assad’s soldiers during the civil war, which was perniciously effective in both oppressing communities and provoking defections to the loosely formed Free Syrian Army. Hence the Syrian Ba'ath party – and its leader Bashar al-Assad – must make it into a priority to bring offenders of sexual violence to justice; and also commit themselves to raise awareness about empowering women to combat sexual violence: so that human rights, gender equality and the rule of law can finally be manifested in Syria. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in Syria, so that a just social peace can be manifested in the country.

Human rights groups estimate that up to 20% of the population is enslaved, with one in two Haratines forced to work on farms or in homes with no possibility of freedom, education or pay. Yet the government routinely denies that slavery exists in Mauritania, instead praising itself for eradicating the practice; while anti-slavery activists are regularly tortured and detained – such as anti-slavery activist Biram Dah Abeid, who was imprisoned on the eve of legislative elections in Mauritania in 2018. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in Mauritania; by exploring both social scientific and Islamic approaches, so that human rights and gender equality can be improved in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania.< Less

Violation of Child Rights is also a big problem in the Philippines, occurring on a wide scale to children in socially troubled areas; many poverty-stricken children being the sons and daughters of sex tourists, who visited the Philippines to buy sex – but who left their children behind, representing a United Nations of parentage, and a generation of Philippine children who want to track down their fathers. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in the Philippines; by exploring both social scientific and ethical approaches, so that human rights, social equality and public health can be improved in the Philippines.< Less
