We're dedicated to...
Welcome to the website of Just World Educational, a feisty nonprofit providing educational resources that critically examine the United States’ role in the world, focusing on issues of war, peace, and justice.
In March and April, 2022, we ran a big project on the Ukraine crisis. In March we held eight webinars in which hosts Richard Falk and Helena Cobban explored aspects of the crisis with 17 other great scholars and activists. We then built on the records of those convos to produce a 32-page report titled "Ukraine: Stop the Carnage, Build the Peace", along with a multimedia Online Learning Hub.
You can learn about the Learning Hub and the Report, and download a PDF of the Report (or order a pre-printed copy from Amazon) at this page on our website.
These resources complement each other well. Together, they provide a rich fund of materials that can help to spark discussions and education in your community group, classroom, or congregation.
** In Winter 2022, we ran a podcast series "The World From Palestine." Every Friday, co-hosts Helena Cobban and Yousef Aljamal explored the intersections between Palestine’s liberation struggle and other anti-imperialist struggles throughout history, and until today.
The 30-minute episodes were distributed globally by Just World Podcasts and are available for streaming or download on all major podcast-streaming platforms, including Apple and Spotify. You can catch all the episodes and transcripts, here.
** In Fall 2021, we ran a small, focused project on Afghanistan, focusing on the humanitarian crisis faced by the country's 39 million people. Read more about it here.
** Earlier, in Summer 2021, we resumed our "Beyond Survival" series on food sovereignty struggles in Palestine and elsewhere. One key event in this project was an August webinar "From Bethlehem to Gaza: Palestinian Culinary Resilience & Liberation" jointly presented with the Middle East Children's Alliance. See the video of this event here.
** Between March 2020 and mid-2021, we presented five series of linked, thematic webinars, totaling over two dozen groundbreaking sessions. The videos of all these series-- which covered the topics of Syria, the "World after Covid", the US-China balance, food sovereignty issues in Gaza, Palestine, and Women in South Africa's Struggle against Apartheid-- have been archived onto rich multimedia Resource Pages that are now freely available to the learning public via the Resources tab on this website.
