As we look ahead this year, voters in more than 50 countries, including the United States, will go to the polls. The elections will take place during a period of global democratic backsliding and in rapidly changing social media environments characterized by new threats from generative artificial intelligence and tech platforms’ reductions in trust and safety protections.

Opinion: Americans Are Fed Up, Candidates. Clean Up Your Act

We stand on opposite sides of the partisan divide, but we believe it is better to search for solutions together than to remain divided. This is particularly true of a vexing problem that could wreak havoc during the 2024 presidential election: the inadequacy of the Electoral Count Act of 1887.

Jimmy Carter: I Fear for Our Democracy
Op-ed by Jimmy Carter in The New York Times.
One year ago, a violent mob, guided by unscrupulous politicians, stormed the Capitol and almost succeeded in preventing the democratic transfer of power.

Forty years ago, Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping and I normalized diplomatic relations between the People’s Republic of China and the United States, putting an end to three decades of hostility.

Yet, today, this critical relationship is in jeopardy.

To Dr. Hawkins, who is retiring now as provost of this great university, and to Secretary Carson, who is here, whom I have admired for a long time, to President Falwell and all of his family, to the students who are graduating, to the parents who have supported them, and to all the rest of you: This is a wonderful crowd.

Jimmy Carter and Gro Harlem Brundtland op-ed, published by Time.
"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" are the inalienable rights at the heart of the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America.

Opinion: Caregiving Support’s Come a Long Way
Rosalynn Carter op-ed, published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Thirty years is a long time in the history of caregiving as an issue in our country. The world was a very different place then. We used push-button phones, not cell phones, and had big word processors, not personal computers. There were social clubs, not social media, and people took care of each other because of a sense of familial responsibility. You didn’t hear much about “caregivers,” not because they didn’t exist but because what they were doing was quite common, and it was expected.

Jimmy Carter: What I’ve Learned from North Korea’s Leaders
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
As the world knows, we face the strong possibility of another Korean war, with potentially devastating consequences to the Korean Peninsula, Japan, our outlying territories in the Pacific and perhaps the mainland of the United States.

U.S. Must Stand for Human Rights by Jimmy Carter
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Wall Street Journal.
The only title higher and more powerful than that of president is the title of citizen. We Americans are in the midst of a political transition that is reassuring in its constitutional orderliness even as it is fraught with uncertainty about what comes next. Just as each new U.S. president does, we, as citizens, should use this moment to remember the values that have defined us as a great nation.

Jimmy Carter: A First Step for Syria? Stop the Killing
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The New York Times

Jimmy Carter, speech at the Center's 2016 Human Rights Defenders Forum.
I was on a battleship in the Atlantic Ocean in 1945 when the world’s powers got together and formed the United Nations with a clear and express purpose of preventing war in the future.

Jimmy Carter Op-ed: To Curb Prostitution, Punish Those Who Buy Sex Rather Than Those Who Sell It
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
It is disturbing that some human rights and public health organizations are advocating the full legalization of the sex trade, including its most abusive aspects. I agree with Amnesty InternationalUNAIDS and other groups that say that those who sell sex acts should not be arrested or prosecuted, but I cannot support proposals to decriminalize buyers and pimps.

Nordic Model Key to Beating Exploitation
Mary Ann Peters op-ed, published on CNN.com
With a decisive 64-12 vote in parliament this month, France asserted its determination to put an end to the exploitation of women and girls through prostitution. The United States and the rest of the world should follow suit. France's new law follows the Nordic Model, which recognizes prostitution as a form of violence, makes the purchase of sex acts illegal, regards prostituted persons as victims rather than criminals, and provides victims with help to get out of the business.

Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The New York Times.
I HAVE known Bashar al-Assad, the president of Syria, since he was a college student in London, and have spent many hours negotiating with him since he has been in office.

Hrair Balian op-ed, published by NOREF.
There is a renewed push to establish "no-fly" and "IS-free" zones in Syria. An external military intervention to establish such zones, even with the good intention of protecting civilians, is likely to precipitate more chaotic fighting and further harm civilians.

We Can End the Illegal Sex Trade
Jimmy Carter and Swanee Hunt op-ed, published by Politico

Syria's Civil War Sees No End in Sight
Hrair Balian op-ed, published by Al Jazeera America.
As the fourth anniversary of the conflict in Syria approaches, there appears no end in sight. Horrendous violations of international law continue unabated.

As we contemplate how to strike back at North Korea because it is believed to be behind the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment's computer network, the foremost proposal is tightening sanctions.

The World's Youngest Country and a Very Old Disease: South Sudan Proves Guinea Worm Can Be Defeated With Return To Peace
Donald R. Hopkins op-ed, published by The Huffington Post.
In the 1970s, a decade of peace opened up between civil wars in Sudan, allowing health workers to reach and immunize at-risk communities for smallpox. Without this window of peace, historians argue, smallpox might not have been conquered there. Recent outbreaks of violence (Dec. 15, 2013) in the new country of South Sudan have led some to speculate whether eradication efforts will succeed for another primeval plague -- the Bible's "fiery serpent," known today as Guinea worm disease (dracunculiasis).

The Sudan Conflict and Disease
Donald R. Hopkins letter to the editor, as published by The New York Times.
"U.S. Is Facing Hard Choices in South Sudan" (front page, Jan. 4) reports that the conflict there "has left the Obama administration scrambling to prevent the unraveling of a major American achievement in Africa."

These calls have been issued since June 2011, but no belligerents have shown up because each has been allowed to define the preconditions for negotiations. The only way to break this stalemate is for the United Nations and major powers to set the conditions for participation and enforce them.

Fulton Must Avoid Mental Health Cuts
Rosalynn Carter op-ed, published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The Fulton County Commission must avoid the proposed cuts to Grady Memorial Hospital's mental health services. The loss of the Grady programs these monies fund will be devastating. Emergency rooms at area hospitals will overflow with mental health patients in crisis. With an already inadequate capacity, the regional hospital will have to turn away more citizens in need. The jail population likely will increase as it becomes practically the only alternative for shelter and care. The county may cut the Grady contract, only to end up paying for more expensive psychiatric services at other hospitals.

Speech by Jimmy Carter at the U.S.-China Relations Forum in Atlanta, Ga.
On Dec. 15, 1978, Deng Xiaoping and I announced simultaneously in Beijing and Washington that we were going to normalize diplomatic relations the first day of 1979, and just three days later, on Dec. 18, Deng Xiaoping announced reform and opening up for the people in his own country at the 3rd Plenum of the 11th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party.

Well, there are a lot of benefits from that.

PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: Well, I'm greatly honored to be here. And I realize that most people know that it's highly unlikely that any of us three (including former U.S. President Bill Clinton and U.S. President Barack Obama) over on my right would have served in the White House or be on this platform had it not been for Martin Luther King Jr. and his movement and his crusade for civil rights. So we are grateful to him for our being here.

Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by World Politics Review.

Co-authors: David Satcher, and Tony Coelho. In the past few decades, the mental health community has accomplished much through tenacity. The same dedication that has brought us this far must be applied to decreasing stigma and promoting social inclusion in its place.

Chavez Legacy an Incomplete Revolution
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by USA Today.
Hugo Chávez was a larger than life figure who dominated Venezuelan politics and shaped hemispheric relations as few leaders have done. He personified change in Venezuela and was the single unifying force in the country since 1999 – unifying his diverse supporters to follow his lead, and uniting his opponents to try to defeat him.

Speech by Jimmy Carter to the Commonwealth Club, San Francisco, Calif.
Thank you. Thank you very much. Well, first of all, let me say that I'm glad to be here. This is not something that I do very often, but I came because of my — I'd say the influence and pressure from George Smith, my good friend, and when George asks you to do something, it's very hard to say no. Also, I wanted to follow in the footsteps of my wife, who was here two years ago, and I can't hope to fill those shoes, but I'll do the best I can.

Despite Uncertainty, Venezuela's Political Scenarios Not all Bleak (PDF)
Jennifer McCoy op-ed  published by World Politics Review
For 14 years, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has galvanized his diverse supporters and united his opponents. Now, with Chávez apparently gravely ill, these centrifugal forces will be much harder to hold together, and many have predicted political instability, infighting within both camps and even violence. Nevertheless, three dynamics could help to prevent Venezuela from spinning out of control.

Two-Party Politics a Boon for Sierra Leone
John Stremlau op-ed, published by BDlive
Successful elections were held in Sierra Leone this month, another African good news story barely noted amid the headlines of the latest conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Middle East. But the 50-year sentence given to former Liberian head of state Charles Taylor earlier this year by an international tribunal for war crimes in Sierra Leone points to the history of horrors in that corner of Africa, which prompted journalist Robert Kaplan to famously forecast a "coming anarchy" — a proliferation of Sierra Leone-like failed states threatening global peace and security.

Beneath Chávez's Victory
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by the
Most English-language commentary has attributed Hugo Chávez's surprising 11-point victory in Venezuela's presidential election on October 7 to oil-fueled public spending and "ventajismo" (incumbent use of state machinery to create an unlevel playing field and impressive mobilization), with some voters induced by fear of losing promised benefits to vote for the president. While all these factors contributed to the outcome, the analyses miss one additional factor explaining Chávez' political longevity.

The Wisdom of Reforming Terrorist Designations
Nathan Stock op-ed, published by Foreign Policy
In 2008 — 18 years after New York City threw him a ticker tape parade for helping to end apartheid — it took an act of Congress to ensure that Nelson Mandela did not need a special waiver to enter the United States, finally removing his terrorist designation. In November 2011, Hezbollah leader Imad Mughniyah was removed from the "Individuals and Entities Designated by the State Department Under E.O. 13224" terrorist list. He had been dead for three and a half years.

The Cherokee Nation had difficulty electing its principal chief, so much so that members called in the 顶级国产视频 to observe the most recent vote and judge whether it was free and fair.
