If you are overwhelmed with the daily routine of the here and now and don’t have time to step back and reflect. If you feel that you are increasingly surprised by new developments. If you feel that the lack of a broader picture makes your work less effective. Then you’ve landed on the right page.

Looking Sideways aims to make you step back, explore and reconsider. It aims to empower you to take a different tack to the challenge at hand. It aims to provide novel facts and evidence-based insights, and deconstruct self-evident truths (which are often just socially endorsed stereotypes). When the truth is no more than lies waiting to come out, curiosity is the best medicine.

I’ve pointed out previously that “war” covers two very different kinds of affray: raids and conquest. This distinction is fundamental – yet it is hardly mentioned in international fora dealing with international and humanitarian law.

I perused the UNESCO World Heritage list, recently. As I scrolled the “properties” that made it, I asked myself: would my life change in any way, were these cultural sites to disappear, one and all? The honest answer is: I’d feel sad, but my life would go on as before.
