Sen Foundation predicted a global health crisis like Corona in 2010

In 2010, the Sen Foundation published a book called Nine Scourges at Once, in the Dutch language “Negen Plagen Tegelijk”. Chapter 5, pp 96-99 gave a now accurate prediction of a new global health crisis like the Corona crisis with serious disrupting consequences for mankind and the global economy. This prediction was based on a number of developments which pointed, according to the author, in this direction. The book was sold out, but not translated into English. The warning was ignored, also in The Netherlands. There are more of such predictions in the book. So: pay attention to our site, and the next time you may be forewarned…

Making Sense

A world without poverty?

More than 700 million people, almost 10% of the world population, have to subsist on an income of just $1.90 a day living in poverty-stricken areas like Sub-Sahara Africa and much of South and Southeast Asia. To many of us, living in rich societies, two dollars is just loose change we might not notice if they were lost.



We offer courses, guest lectures, and training on Peacebuilding, UN activities and Development Cooperation. We teach a summer course at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and supervise Master and Ph.D. theses at Leiden University. They include Peacebuilding after Conflict, International Relations, and International Organisations as well as Current Issues.
