AT about the same time last Wednesday, I was e-mailing last week's column to The Post, a London High Court was sitting in judgement on a 2013 dispute whose roots lie deep in the bowels of Zambia's Copperbelt.

The abduction of hundreds of young Nigerian girls by the Islamic militia Boko Haram has been front-page news for weeks. The global public is outraged by the group's violation of fundamental principles and sensibilities: the prohibition of slavery, the protection of personal integrity, the obligation to protect children, and the right of adolescent girls to obtain an education and choose when and whom to marry.

Despite gains in life expectancy, expanded access to education, and lower rates of poverty and hunger, the world has a long way to go to improve the quality of people's lives.
