Konflikt

To reconcile trauma

Ny Tids' now regular columnist, peace researcher Johan Galtung, draws lines between possible reasons why the world is as it is – and solutions to the challenges we face.

Russian defectors and the Litvinenko affair 

Like Sergei Skripal, Russian agent Aleksandr Litvinenko was also poisoned in the UK. Beyond this, the two cases have little in common.

Major political lies about Russia?

What can the politicians really say with certainty about the poisoning of the Russian ex-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter – and what unfortunate consequences is this case about to have?

The bitter legacy of colonial violence

The "Me Too" movement continues to pave its way through the western world, but the slogans have no echo among African women.

The struggle for Palestinian national memory 

The ongoing Palestinian return march, which started 30. March, and has gathered tens of thousands of Palestinians, is a message to Israel and the international community that Palestinians maintain the demand for the right to return to their homeland.

A third way in foreign policy

The newly elected leader of Rød Ungdom, Tobias Drevland Lund (21), tells Ny Tid that Norway should be militarily independent of the great powers the USA and Russia. Instead, he sees a Nordic defense alliance as a third way in foreign policy.

Never more war?

Can a third world war based on allegations be thrown at us? Our allies have deployed doomsday weapons in large numbers – a major war today puts all life at risk.

Many of us hope that the human rights year 2018 will be more than just fine party speeches, and that Norway will raise its voice when activists are threatened, killed, imprisoned and gagged in the countries they work in.

Emergency assistance will save lives and alleviate emergency emergencies. We will be in place when the need is greatest. Nevertheless, the humanitarian sector fails time and time again when it comes to the most. Why is it like that?

Why is the "Norway of peace" sitting still in the boat?

Killer robots that can identify and attack a target without human intervention are just around the corner. Technology companies are predicting a "third revolution in warfare" and warning of the risk of international security.

UN: a reality the world has left

We cannot do without the UN, but a more creative and efficient organization would be desirable.

West of the West Bank

The conflict between Israel and Palestine is more difficult to resolve than ever, states a Middle East researcher in a new book. 

"Not many enough!"

A complex relationship over many centuries is now reflected in the recent Polish-Israeli conflict.

Women raise their voice in Turkey 

The international women's film festival Filmmor in Turkey may be seen as a drop in a male-dominated sea, but it is part of a feminist stream that is growing in strength and scope.

Calls for a new peace movement

"A peace activist organized practice is absent," says Marielle Leraand in Rødt til Ny Tid. Should the party's main be the fight against a Difference Norway or an attempt to re-establish the peace movement? Leerand says that the peace movement has been virtually dead since 2003.
