Politics, Economics, and Formal Education
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On November 1st and article appeared in the New York Times illustrating the impact of national politics and political relations, economics, defining a country’s formal education system. The article by Jo Becker and Steven Lee Myers “Putin’s Friend Profits in Purge of Schoolbooks” raises serious questions about priorities and raises awareness that schooling is very much integrated into the political and economic priorities of a nation.
We need to hear more from education- finance – political experts in the UN discussions on education, SDGs, MDGs and find ways to integrate rights, equity, CBDR, security, and public engagement. To learn more
All the best,
Pam Puntenney and Bremley Lyngdoh

Risk management – Principles and guidelines ISO 31000:2009 provides principles
and generic guidelines on risk management.
ISO 31000:2009 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise,
association, group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any
industry or sector. ISO 31000:2009 can be applied throughout the life of an
organization, and to a wide range of activities, including strategies and decisions,
operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services and assets.
ISO 31000:2009 can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether
having positive or negative consequences.
Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote
uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and plementation
of risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying
needs of a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure,
operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific
practices employed. It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize
risk management processes in existing and future standards. It provides a common
approach in support of standards dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and
does not replace those standards. ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose
