SORT BY Relevancy
An objective evaluation of the history of the world and current events reveal the frequent, incessant and violent nature of ethnic and religious conflicts in countries around the globe. In the words of Donald Horowitz, “ethnic violence since World War II has claimed more than ten million lives, and in the last two decades ethnic conflict has become especially widespread. Ethnicity is at the center of politics in country after country, a potent source of challenges to the cohesion of states and of international tension”.
Recent violence around the world demonstrates that religious conflicts are growing more intense.
Confronted by these facts, many people have been engaged for a long time in the quest to understand the role of ethnicity and religion in human conflict. Important questions have emerged that seek to recognize and explore these roles in hopes of better understanding the causal relationship between ethnic or religious differences and violent conflict.
Committed to the mission of developing alternative methods of preventing, resolving, and educating people about inter-ethnic and inter-religious conflicts in countries around the world, the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation (ICERM) has adopted a unique, comprehensive and coordinated approach to address ethnic and religious conflicts through its online radio project, ICERM Radio.
This episode is therefore aimed at introducing ICERM Radio to the world. As a global peace network dedicated to promoting inter-ethnic and inter-religious cooperation, ICERM Radio shall feature programs that inform, educate, engage, mediate, and heal. Broadcasting from New York City, the cultural melting pot of the world; join us to listen to news, lectures, dialogue, documentary interviews, book reviews, and music.
ICERM Book Review Program.
We are thrilled to announce the review of “The Hour of Sunlight: One Palestinian's Journey from Prisoner to Peacemaker “, an award winning book written by Sami Al Jundi and Jen Marlowe.
Date: Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 8:00 pm in EST, New York.
Host: Maurice Q. Robinson, Esq., PHR
Guest and Author: Jen Marlowe
The Hour of Sunlight describes Sami Al Jundi’s extraordinary metamorphosis from a militant to a passionate advocate of nonviolence and peaceful reconciliation. Born to a family of Palestinian refugees in the Old City of Jerusalem, Sami was only five years old when Israeli soldiers took over his home after the 1967 war. His family began life again as refugees in another part of the Old City. In moving detail Sami describes how these and other realities (and indignities) of his early years caused his radicalization.
Following his arrest, Sami was bound and tortured for weeks by the Israeli General Security Service before beginning his ten-year prison sentence. Ironically, it was in an Israeli jail that his personal transformation began: Sami was welcomed into a highly organized, democratic community of political prisoners who required that members of their cell read, engage in political discourse on topics ranging from global revolutions to Russian literature.
In the prison library, Sami found a book on Mahatma Gandhi. He was struck by one story in particular—a Hindu man who had murdered a Muslim baby came to Gandhi seeking repentance. Gandhi told him that there was one way that he could find peace again; he must raise a Muslim orphan for twenty years. It took two decades to build a life, Sami reflected, but only seconds to destroy one.

ICERM Book Review Program. We are happy to announce the review of "Witness to Transformation: My years at the United Nations", a candid and illuminating memoir written by Ambassador Shola Omoregie, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Africa Peace Support, and Former Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Guinea- Bissau and Head of the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNOGBIS).
Date: Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 8:00 pm in EST, New York.
Host: Chavie Brumer.
Guest and Author: Ambassador Shola Omoregie.
The memoir provides glimpses from the vantage point of someone who had seen action in the Front Line States in Southern Africa; of being at the heart of the United Nations Secretariat in New York at a critical time, including personally witnessing the inner dynamics of the Security Council; and of leading critical field assignments in Angola, Botswana and Guinea-Bissau, while also undertaking United Nations Ad Hoc assignments. It also offers lessons learned from his direct experiences as a United Nations expert and as a consultant for the African Union, to which he provided technical and political expertise during the establishment of its Peace and Security Council. This contribution, therefore, comes from someone who has observed developments at close quarters at the international level, including the transformation in the Security Council following the end of the Cold War.
This fascinating multi-disciplinary memoir will be of special interest to policy makers, students on a broad range of academic disciplines and others with interest in, and committed to multilateral diplomacy in a multifaceted international system.

You are invited to the ICERM Radio Book Review Program.
Date: Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 8:00 pm in EST, New York.
Host: Chavie Brumer.
Guest and Author: Dr Koh Kim Seng.
We are happy to announce the review of "Misunderstood Myanmar – An Introspective Study Of A Southeast Asian State In Transition".
Join us to listen to the untold stories about Myanmar as Dr. Koh Seng talks about his extensive field work in Myanmar, and reports on his close encounters with the military Junta, and with business and bureaucratic elites.
“This book argues that to understand the vicissitudes of Myanmar’s recent history and the behavior of its generals one has to grasp the dynamic interaction (struggle even) between, on one hand, its external environment (milieu exterieur), including the disgruntled diaspora alongside the U.S. led international community, and on the other, the internal environment (milieu interieur) consisting of the generals’ ideological orientation in politics and economics which , the author argues, exceptionally , still draws from a well of adverse colonial experiences and betrayals, as well as from religion and culture. ‘Exceptionally’ because unlike other developing states Myanmar has been isolated from the international world for so long that those same internal factors have crystallized and come to take on a significance which, arguably, exceeds the role played by history, culture and religion in other parts of the world."
