Radek Nedved on ominous urbanization

"For the first time in history more than half of the world's population will be living in cities by the end of next year," Radek Nedved quotes a new study published by the UN. He adds: "The problem with this is that one in three city dwellers is forced to live in slum-like conditions. The Third World, in particular, is experiencing dramatic changes. By 2030, more people will be living in African cities than in Europe as a whole. There, demographic changes and migration account for 95 percent of the global increase in city populations. The question is: who's going to build homes for these people, provide jobs for them and take care of their health and education? The study refers to the situation as a time bomb – one of the greatest problems mankind must overcome in this century."

Iran's Nuclear Programme

In response to Iran's restarting its nuclear programme, Oliver Meier of the Hamburg Institute for Peace Research and Security Policies calls for the US to play a more active role in the dispute with Tehran. Speaking in an interview, Meier says: "The United States must change its stance. It should not threaten to start a war but instead reflect on what it could offer Iran. It's now very difficult for the Europeans to negotiate with Iran. If the issue of the Iranian nuclear programme is referred to the UN Security Council, this would not in any way signify the end of the diplomatic process. At the moment, it's important to ensure that the situation doesn't escalate and turn into a bitter conflict. It's vital that we avoid a situation in which one side reacts to the decisions of the other with even harsher decisions."
