Can Venezuela Back Down from the Cliff?
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by AlJazeera.com.
Increased polarisation makes it imperative for Venezuela to take steps to find its way back from the brink.

The "Street Strategy" Deepening Venezuela's Troubles
Jennifer McCoy and Michael McCarthy op-ed, published by The National Interest.
On this first anniversary of Hugo Chávez's death and in the wake of the sudden collapse of the Ukrainian government, predictions are swirling that Venezuela's Maduro government could be toppled either by an aggressive protest movement, or by an internal coup within the chavista movement.

The Arab Spring is Not Over
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by Al Jazeera America
There have been dramatic political upheavals in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, and the Carter Center — the nonprofit foundation I head that seeks to promote human rights, democracy and alleviation of suffering worldwide — has been invited to witness the transition process from authoritarianism to democracy in all of them. We still see citizens struggling to improve their lives and shape their own destiny, with sharply different prospects.

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).

 

Jan. 9, 2014
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." The conflict also jeopardizes an important South Sudanese achievement, which aims to eliminate Guinea worm disease from the young country by the end of this year, with significant benefits to health, agricultural productivity and school attendance.

Madagascar Offers Lessons for Troubled States
John Stremlau,Cassam Uteem, and Dennis Kadima op-ed; published by Business Day Edition.
Madagascar's December 20 elections are a victory for multilateral diplomacy led by the Southern Africa Development Community (Sadc) backed by political and economic sanctions imposed by democracies, including France, the US, the African Union and the United Nations, with the endorsement of China.

 

Dec. 27, 2013
How Canada Can Revise Its Prostitution Laws
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by the Ottawa Citizen.
The decision by the Supreme Court of Canada to strike down the existing basic laws governing prostitution is a step in the right direction. France is also struggling with the same issue, and is considering the adoption of the only workable solution that has been devised. New legislation has been passed by the French assembly to emulate Sweden, and a final decision by the senate is expected in June 2014.

 

Dec. 22, 2013
Time to be Bold and Make Peace in Syria
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
On Nov. 26, the U.N. secretary general made another call for a Geneva peace conference on Syria, to be held Jan. 22. 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.

 

Dec. 12, 2013
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.

 

Nov. 11, 2013
What Can the U.S. and China Do Together?
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.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter's Remarks at the National Symposium on the Modern Death Penalty
PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: Thank you all. My overwhelming feeling right now is one of both gratitude and welcome to you. We are delighted to have you at The Carter Center. You remember that you were here 13 years ago. The Carter Center has now been here about 32 years since I left the White House. We stay quite busy here, and I have a good life as a former president. As a matter of fact, I told a group yesterday morning, that one of my favorite cartoons in New Yorker magazine is this little boy looking up at his father and he says, "Daddy when I grow up, I want to be a former President." Well, there are a lot of benefits from that.

 

Sept. 11, 2013
The World Now Has a Chance to End War in Syria
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
The only way to be assured that Syrian chemical weapons will not be used in the future is not through a military strike but through a successful international effort.

 

Aug. 28, 2013
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter's Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech"
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.

Latin America's Experiences Offer Lessons for Postcoup Egypt (PDF)
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by World Politics Review.
Latin America holds lessons for understanding — and pointing the way through — the current upheaval in Egypt. As Egypt enters a new phase of polarization following the military intervention in the wake of massive protests against its elected leader, recent Latin American experience points to the risks of moving forward without addressing the roots of this polarization.

 

April 25, 2013
The Roots of Venezuela's Recount
Jennifer McCoy and Michael McCarthy op-ed, published by The National Interest.
After fourteen years of Hugo Chávez's personalist leadership, Venezuelans took their first steps into a brave new world of political contestation on April 14 when they elected a president to fulfill Chávez's term. The fireworks that marked the aggressive campaign are, in a sense, still going off.

 

April 8, 2013
Editor's Choice: Addressing Stigma Through Social Inclusion
Rosalynn Carter op-ed, published in the May 2013 edition of the
American Journal of Public Health.
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. It will require a devoted, concentrated effort, but we know from past successes that by working together we can achieve great things.

Public Address by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter
Address by Jimmy Carter from Parkroyal Hotel inYangon, Myanmar.
Introduction by H.E U.S. Ambassador to Myanmar Derek Mitchell: President Carter has been a hero of mine since I was all of 12 years old, when my mother and I stuffed envelopes in 1976 for my first presidential campaign in my home state of Connecticut.

 

March 6, 2013
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.

Challenges of a Superpower (PDF)
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.

Nepal's Peace Process Needs Elections
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published in the Kathmandu Post and Kantipur newspaper.
I have a great interest in the future of this beautiful country, and was honored to visit Nepal three times in the year leading up to the Constituent Assembly elections in 2008. Since that time we have monitored the peace process continually, in Kathmandu and throughout all other regions. Observers from The Carter Center have been deployed in Nepal since 2007.

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.

Western Hemisphere Can Lead in Human Rights (En espańol)
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by Infobae.com.
As President, I signed the American Convention on Human Rights in June 1977.  Although the United States Senate has not ratified the convention, 25 other countries of the hemisphere did, and the Inter-American Court on Human Rights was born in 1979. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights was created much earlier and incorporated in the OAS Charter in 1967.

Videotaped Remarks by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to the United Nations Commission on
Human Rights

Statehood Key to Renew Peace Talks
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by USA Today.
The United Nations General Assembly vote last week that overwhelmingly recognized Palestine as a state could serve as a stepping stone to relaunch the long moribund Middle East peace negotiations.

 

Nov. 27, 2012
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.

Jimmy Carter to California: Yes on Prop. 34
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by the Los Angeles Times.
The process for administering the death penalty in the United States is broken beyond repair, and it is time to choose a more effective and moral alternative. California voters will have the opportunity to do this on election day.

 

Oct. 15, 2012
Beneath Chávez's Victory
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by the Financial Times.
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.

 

Oct. 10, 2012
A Third Option in Syria
Robert A. Pastor op-ed, published by the Los Angeles Times.
The conflict in Syria was "extremely bad and getting worse." That's what Lakhdar Brahimi, special envoy to Syria for the United Nations and the Arab League and one of the world's most skillful diplomats, told the Security Council in late September. The major powers listened but offered no new ideas on how to end the crisis. We need to change direction.

Perspectives on Inter-American Relations

Behind Paraguay's Presidential Ouster
Jennifer McCoy op-ed, published by InterPress Service.

June 24, 2012
A Cruel and Unusual Record
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The New York Times.
The United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights. Revelations that top officials are targeting people to be assassinated abroad, including American citizens, are only the most recent, disturbing proof of how far our nation's violation of human rights has extended.

The Wisdom of Reforming Terrorist Designations
Nathan Stock op-ed, published by Foreign Policy. Login is required to access full text.
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.

 

April 25, 2012
Show Death Penalty the Door
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
For many reasons, it is time for Georgia and other states to abolish the death penalty. A recent poll showed that 61 percent of Americans would choose a punishment other than the death penalty for murder.

 

April 24, 2012
War on Drugs: There Has to Be a Better Way
Jennifer McCoy and Kristen Sample op-ed, published by the Miami Herald.
The main U.S. headlines coming out of the recent Summit of the Americas in Colombia were a sideshow about Secret Service misconduct and the perennially divisive question of Cuba, while President Obama touted the event as an opportunity to help jumpstart U.S. employment by selling more goods to a dynamic Latin America.

President Carter Addresses 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates
The key goal for this 12th summit is for Nobel laureates to inspire younger generations. Having been a college professor for thirty years and with four children, 12 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren I have personal experience and responsibilities to advise and educate young Americans. Remember that this is the audience I am addressing in my remarks.

Don't Give Up on Mideast Peace
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published on nyt.com and a version of it appeared in print on April 13, 2012, in The International Herald Tribune.
The current focus of leaders in Washington and Jerusalem on Iran has obscured the near-death of the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and the inevitable catastrophe toward which Israel is now moving.

Fixing Ailing System Achievable
Rosalynn Carter op-ed, published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
I became involved in mental health issues in 1966, campaigning for my husband for governor. A newspaper exposé had revealed terrible conditions in our large mental hospital, Central State in Milledgeville, and families of the patients there were frustrated and almost beyond hope that anything could be done to help their loved ones.

Black Cherokees Exercise Hard-Won Right to Vote
John Stremlau op-ed, published by CNN.
The Cherokee Nation had difficulty electing its principal chief, so much so that members called in the Carter Center to observe the most recent vote and judge whether it was free and fair. We normally observe elections only in politically troubled countries abroad but believe that the contentiousness and fundamental voting rights issues at stake -- and not just for the Cherokees -- justified this exceptional mission.

After the U.N. Vote on Palestine
Jimmy Carter op-ed,  published by the International Herald Tribute and NYTimes.com.

What Is A Superpower?
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by Tikkun Magazine.
American military expenditures are now equal to those combined for all other nations, and it is good to know that our nation's defenses against a conventional attack are impregnable. It is also imperative that America remain vigilant against threats from terrorists. But the admirable characteristics of a nation are no more defined by its size and physical prowess than are those of a human being.

The Unchanged Path to Mideast Peace
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by the International Herald Tribune and NYT.com
.
It was not a new U.S. policy concerning the borders of Israel, nor should it have been surprising to Israeli leaders, when President Obama stated: "The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states."

Support The Palestinian Unity Government
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
This is a decisive moment. Under the auspices of the Egyptian government, Palestine's two major political movements — Fatah and Hamas — are signing a reconciliation agreement on Wednesday that will permit both to contest elections for the presidency and legislature within a year.

Two Vital Steps on Path to Democracy in Egypt
John Stremlau op-ed, published by CNN.
The resignation of President Hosni Mubarak was only the first step on what will be a long, difficult path toward genuine democratic governance — one that will need the support of the international community.

Credible Elections for Egypt
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The New York Times/International Herald Tribune.
Even at this point, after the dramatic announcement by the armed forces, no one can predict the ultimate outcome of the Egyptian drama. But there is a clear picture of the existing situation and a few obvious options for the future.

South Africa Must Accept That Gbagbo Lost the Election
John Stremlau op-ed, published by Business Day.
South Africa may not have vital interests at stake in the Cote d'Ivoire election, but questioning the results certified by the United Nations (UN) risks harming those that do. Most at risk are the long-suffering Ivorian people and their neighbours, who are struggling to deal with a rising tide of refugees as a result of this unnecessary and unjustified crisis over presidential succession.

Looking to the Future in Sudan: Dr. Donald R. Hopkins' Letter to the Editor, The New York Times
This letter sent Jan. 11, 2011, by Carter Center Health Programs Vice President Donald R. Hopkins, M.D., M.P.H., is in response to an editorial published Jan. 8, 2011, by The New York Times.
"Southern Sudan Votes" (editorial, Jan. 8) rightly notes that the government of southern Sudan has "set up more than two dozen ministries and built schools and roads" since the signing of the comprehensive peace agreement in 2005.

Tutu, Carter: Time to Move on Mideast Peace
Jimmy Carter and Desmond Tutu op-ed, published by USA TODAY.
For nearly two decades, there have been peace processes in the Middle East but no peace. In recent visits to the region — including Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory — we have heard a consistent message: People want peace but are skeptical about the process and have little faith in the international community to deliver.

Progress on Neglected Disease is Moot If We Neglect to Count (PDF)
Donald R. Hopkins op-ed, published by Nature Medicine. Abbreviated version reprinted with permission. The complete issue can be viewed at: http://www.nature.com/nm/index.html.
The recent global campaign launched against a select number of neglected tropical diseases is a welcome development. But we should be as careful about measuring progress toward the control or elimination of these diseases as we are about choosing which ones to target.

 

Nov. 24, 2010
Listen to North Korea
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by The Washington Post.
No one can completely understand the motivations of the North Koreans, but it is entirely possible that their recent revelation of their uranium enrichment centrifuges and Pyongyang's shelling of a South Korean island Tuesday are designed to remind the world that they deserve respect in negotiations that will shape their future. Ultimately, the choice for the United States may be between diplomatic niceties and avoiding a catastrophic confrontation.

Tea Party and Me
Jimmy Carter op-ed, published by USA Today.
A number of readers of my new book have noted parallels between today's frustrated and even angry mood and a similar mood in the mid-1970s. Indeed, in some ways my successful campaign for the presidency in 1976 resembled the Tea Party movement of today.

Helping Our Vets Here at Home
Thomas Bornemann op-ed, published by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
On Memorial Day, families across Georgia recognize the bravery and sacrifices of men and women in the armed forces.

A Project for Haiti: The Eradication of Two Diseases
This letter to the editor of the New York Times by Carter Center Vice President for Health Programs Dr. Donald R. Hopkins was published March 30, 2010, in response to the March 28, 2010 editorial "Making Haiti Whole."
Two projects that the donors conference on Haiti should consider this week are the binational plan that Haiti and the Dominican Republic announced last October to eliminate malaria by 2020, and the plan that Haiti announced simultaneously to eliminate lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis) by 2020 (the Dominican Republic expects to eliminate lymphatic filariasis this year).
