Political, economic, social and environmental problems...

A UN report by more than 100 independent intellectuals and scholars from Arab countries blames political, economic, social and environmental problems for undermining the lives and freedom of Arabs

One asks, “Why have obstacles to human development in the region proved so stubborn?”

I just can't imagine.

The list included
A lack of representative government coupled with human rights violations and sweeping powers for security agencies;

No security for many people outside the mainstream including abused and subordinated women, trafficking victims, child soldiers, refugees and the internally displaced;

I wonder if it is possible ... if there is any chance at all ... that there might be some ... err...other unifying factor involved in the problems described.'s on the tip of my brain...

Could it be...
