It was recorded that the root causes of the today reconciliation process in Liberia and the civil war that devastated Liberia between 1989 and 2003 were poverty, corruption, and inequality, Schmid E.

Honour Killinf

...HONOUR KILLING: MURDER IN THE NAME OF HONOUR CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Honour killing is a deep rooted brutal and burning human rights issue in India and other countries. Women particularly are the victims of the gross violation. They exist all over the world but no religion stipulates them. Outdated traditions and alleged honour violating behaviour are the motive for these crimes. The victims are almost always female. Young, unmarried women can "dishonour" their families easily. Every year hundreds of women are killed in India in the name of honour and many cases go unreported and almost all of them go unpunished. The criminal justice system is unable to combat it though it is claimed that the criminal justice system is the most legitimate institution to control this practice in the country. Honour is the most precious moral attribute of mankind. It is deeply ingrained in its nature. Defence of honour even at the cost of life has been prevalent in human beings since ages. It is a commonwealth of close blood relatives. Defilement of honour is taken as the most atrocious social crime and its redemption becomes a joint and sacred duty of close-knit people. Debased groups have a soft approach towards transgression of honour. The sentimental chord dormant in them may react at times; its degree may vary from group to group. Tradition-bound rural societies invariably react violently for the redemption of their honour. To them honour is dearer than life. Honour......

Vessels and Honour

...VESSELS OF HONOUR But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. I normally use to think this scripture was for some special group of people till I met four lepers at the entrance of the city gate. Rejected by all but chosen by God to fulfil his prophecy these Lepers did not only have faith but also Love. In times when women killed their kids for food, these lepers thought of the nation when they took over a camp by the workings of God. Israel had an army that God could have used but God chose the four lepers instead. In life we mostly consider ourselves unworthy because of rejections we face in the hands of men. We look down on ourselves because something we lack or feel we lack and say we are not good enough. But God thinks otherwise if we are faithful to Him and try our best to please Him. God doesn't make mistakes and does not wish anyone to suffer but to give Love, Peace and Joy to all men. You may think God has abandoned you but God is positioning you to fulfil His prophecy. Whenever you are rejected by those you Love tell yourself, “they might be doing it for evil but God is turning it into good, and that many may be saved". BY APOGEE...

Honour Killing in Our Country

...Honor killing in our country An honor killing or honour killing (also called a customary killing) is the murder of a member of a family or social group by other members, due to the belief of the perpetrators (and potentially the wider community) that the victim has brought dishonour upon the family or community. Honour killings are directed mostly against women and girls. The perceived dishonor is normally the result of one of the following behaviors, or the suspicion of such behaviors: a. dressing in a manner unacceptable to the family or community, b. wanting to terminate or prevent an arranged marriage or desiring to marry by own choice, c. engaging in heterosexual sexual acts outside marriage, or even due to a non-sexual relationship perceived as inappropriate, and d. engaging in homosexual acts. Women and girls are killed at a much higher rate than men. Recently, there has been a spate of honor killings in the country and this has led the government to decide what laws should be put in place to stop this heinous crime. Also whether the Hindu Marriage Act should be reformed or not is being debated. So what is the definition of honour killing and what leads families to commit this heinous crime so that they can protect their family honour? Is this practice prevalent only in India or is it prevalent in other parts of the world also? What are the misconceptions regarding honour killing and what are the solutions to stop this crime from spreading? These are the......

... * The access network (UTRAN), handles all the functionalities related to the radio resources and air interface management functionalities. As depicted in Figure 1.2, the UTRAN consists of Node-Bs and several RNCs, which play roughly equivalent roles to the roles performed in GSM by the base transceiver stations (BTSs) and Base Station Controller (BSCs), respectively. _ Node B : Node B in UMTS is the physical unit for radio transmission/reception with cells. In fact, its main role is to perform physical layer functions (e.g., modulation/demodulation, coding, interleaving, spreading, etc). The main tasks of Node B are the air interface transmission/reception and CDMA physical channel coding. It also measures quality and the strength of the connections and determines the Frame Error Rate (FER). It transmits these data to the RNC as a measurement report for handoff and macro diversity. In addition, the Node B also participates in power control, as it enables the MS to adjust its power. _ Radio Network Controller : The RNC is one of the key elements of the UTRAN. It connects Node B to the transport network. It is responsible for hando_ decisions that require signaling to the MS. Node Bs resources are controlled from the RNC. Typically, the functions of RNC are : Radio resource Figure 1.1: UMTS architecture. control, admission control, channel allocation, power control settings, handoff control, macro diversity, encryption,......

Thesis

...origin and their relation to deviant knowledge, the thesis determines that both terrorism and organised crime are nurtured by a constant trickle from minor sources rather than by large financial transfers; and that anti-money laundering provisions are misapplied, taken too far, too expensive, and incapable of demonstrating their effectiveness. In lieu of more traditional policy recommendations, the thesis develops a complexity-theory based intelligence function, capillary intelligence, to improve the present information-gathering systems and generate consistent and context-relevant intelligence for the consideration of policy-makers. The intelligence function takes into account also the concept of self-organised criticality. The thesis fully adheres to the principle that efficiently applied intelligence-led approaches for detection of organised crime are demonstrably superior to a “follow the money” approach. An extended concept of deviant knowledge is developed and five methodological techniques employed: Complexity theory, network theory, self-organised criticality, scaling theory, and intelligence treatment. The thesis is multidisciplinary and calls on contributions from International Law, Economics, Criminal Justice Studies, and Governance and Ethics. Its approach is illustrative and fits Baudrillard’s 1981 methodological principles known as bricolage. Using five methodologies and six major case studies, the thesis reaches four conclusions. First, the rapid......

Honor killings are part of a community mentality. Large sections of society share traditional conceptions of family honor and approve of “honor” killings to preserve that honor. Even mothers whose daughters have been killed in the name of honor often condone such violent acts. Convicted killers often speak with defiant pride and without regret about their actions. The Concept of Honor Killing Honor Killing is one form of extreme violence perpetrated on women by men in certain societies. Most commonly, it is premeditated killing of a girl or a woman who is perceived to have besmirched her family’s honor by her sexual conduct.
