Help wanted to define the connections

We are seeking students and others to help us identify and describe the connections. Web of relationships between categories of issues.
Our theses are as follows.
  1. The many issues considered by the Peace, Justice, and Environmental movements are all interrelated.
  2. Activists will further advance their own interests by sharing some of their efforts with other connected issues.
  3. This cross-contribution of ideas and efforts is essential to the success of the movements.
Currently, our most ambitious task is to identify and explain the specific connections among issues. So far, we have identified about 150 issues within 12 major categories of interest. The number of potential connections among these 150 issues is over 20,000. We would expect any one person to contribute only a small number. Each connection will have a one-sentence precis that will be backed up by at least one example that, in turn, will be backed up by a solid reference.

Follow this link to read more about the form and content of the expositions of connections.

A big question is "where to start?" If you're interested in contributing, you could begin by choosing an issue or area that is particularly meaningful to you and then identify other issues and areas whose advocates would actually help their own cause if they contribute to yours. Each issue-pair that you identify is a candidate connection. You need to substantiate the connection and write it up (with summary, example(s), and reference(s)). Read more. View examples.

We envision the development of the web site as an ongoing process with about 50 contributors at a time.
