Combatting Societal Challenges Through Peace Education In Schools By Swaleha Sindhi

No education system is complete without peace education. It may take such forms as moral, value or citizenship, democratic or global education, peace education can be defined as an educational response to the problem of human violence. Schools can directly benefit by adopting peace education. There is ample evidence to show that it improves the quality of teaching and learning, discipline, and helps emotional development in children

Signature Anti-Corruption Legislation Approved | Barbados Today

Signature Anti-Corruption Legislation Approved | Barbados Today | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Last week the Democratic Labour Party successfully ushered its signature piece of legislation through both chambers of Parliament. I speak of the Prevention of Corruption Bill, 2012.

 

The bill, which makes provision for the prevention of corruption and the implementation of (a) the Inter-American Convention Against Corruption, (b) Articles 8 and 9 of the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime relating to Corruption, and (c) the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, was a centrepiece of the DLP’s 2008 manifesto.

 

The Stuart Administration has taken a bold and progressive step in defence of the public’s interests. The creation of this new legal framework aims to protect citizens, residents and guests from the corrosive vices of greed and corruption. It is intended to safeguard integrity in public office, a seemingly scarce virtue.

 

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and it is in the implementation and enforcement of the Prevention of Corruption Bill that will ultimately determine its effectiveness. I have read the objections of some MPs and senators, but in this case I prefer to subscribe to the edict of the late US President, Ronald Reagan: “Trust, but verify.” Many a politician has breached public trust but the majority have served nobly in service to country and party, indeed few have escaped the anguish of false accusations and the vilest of rumours and innuendo.

 

The perceptions created by unsubstantiated allegations of corruption, allegedly peddled by politicians who “seek office to enrich themselves”, also undermine the country’s social fabric by slowly decaying the faith of the governed in public administration. It is my view that the pending prevention of corruption framework would set appropriate standards of conduct and safeguards for public officials that could foster faith and trust in governance and defend the reputations of honest, hard working public officials.
