DEBATE AND DIALOGUE IN POLITICS (9/2020)

The difference between debate and dialogue in politics is huge. The lack of distinction and the overwhelming focus on debates in politics generate major problems and deadlocks from local to international levels. From a political point of view, dialogue without coercion is almost the exact opposite of debate.

THE ARTICLE

If too many French soldiers die in the Sahel, France may withdraw most of its troops. In this case, France could again send only small contingents of special forces to secure the uranium among other possible missions. Or it could replace Niger’s uranium with more of that metal from Kazakhstan and Canada. Or France could ask the European Union and other European countries to get involved militarilly in the Sahel in order to prevent more migrants from coming to Europe. And shed more African blood in the process.
