The Gordian in Audio

What does Antonio Guterres’ re-selection mean for the United Nations? — Podcast

Plunging into the ocean of UN communiques is like drowning in an alphabet soup. Often, the words are noble, the causes honourable. Occasionally they even make a difference… and yet the members of this mighty club behave like undisciplined children who delight in doing just as they please.

In this month’s episode of the Gordian in Audio we’ll tell you about António Guterres’ ambitions and limitations.

The music used in this episode is composed by Crowander. Check out more of their music here.

Are the ICJ and the ICC our answers to international justice? – Podcast

Justice is not a relative term, but for much of our history we have manipulated it to such an extent that we have created a parallel sort of justice. More often than not, human justice is just a sinister doppelgänger of justice in its purest form. This is because human justice depends on laws, and as we all know, laws are biased.

The justice of the Inquisition, a sharia court or the sham courts of dictatorial regimes are based on very different laws and therefore profess their own unique brands of justice. The one main thing that they do have in common, though, is that they are self-serving.

In this episode of the Gordian in Audio we’ll talk to Adrian Liberto about the Justice Doppelgänger: the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

Seven Ways to Create a Healthy Economy with Kate Raworth – Podcast

Raworth’s 2017 book develops the idea further. The seven “ways” she explores are simple, well researched, grounded and achievable. Click here to read this piece.
