Lecture

"Venezuela - der Weg von der Demokratie in die sozialistische Diktatur"

Diese Veranstaltung führen wir in Kooperations mit der Gesellschaft für Sicherheitspolitik (GSP) e. V. durch
Der weltweit in demokratischen Staaten zu beobachtende Entwicklungstrend hin zu populistischen und autoritären Regierungen verstört - welche Mechanismen befeuern diese Entwicklungen? Ein dramatisches Beispiel ist der Niedergang Venezuelas. Venezuela, einst ein Hort der Demokratie und des Wohlstandes in Südamerika zu den Zeiten, als dort überwiegend Diktatoren das Regime führten. Venezuela, Sehnsuchtsziel so mancher deutschen Auswanderer („Ananas aus Caracas“) nach dem II. Weltkrieg – und heute? Die politisch dramatische und wirtschaftlich desaströse Lage dürfte aus den Medien hinlänglich bekannt sein. Doch was sind die Hintergründe dieser Entwicklung? Woher kommt die venezolanische Gesellschaft, was war ursächlich für die aktuellen Entwicklungen und welche Perspektiven sind denkbar?

Discussion

Data as Political Capital

What kind of Rules & Regulations do we need for a a digitized Democracy?
Digitization has completely altered the way our societies communicate and how political opinion-making is shaped. Foreign interference, online hate-speech, data leaks on social media platforms and fake-news have made it more important than ever to define a global rules-based system and code of conduct that sets a common standard and protects democracy. The discussion with Germany’s leading startup for Digital Political Communications and Teddy Goff, one of America’s key figures from the campaigning landscape, will provide a state of the lay of current debates in Europe and the US, and will draw attention to the action that needs to be taken in order to have resilient democracies in the age of new technologies and artificial intelligence.

Predicaments of Uganda’s Middleclass as Portrayed by Three Photographers

by Donnas Ojok

Africa’s middle-class as defined by certain criteria such as secondary schooling completion, decent housing, and skilled employment is rising. Though the Ugandan middle class population accounts a small portion, urban dynamics present opportunities for a significant demographic rise of this social class. As part of the Future Africa Vision in Time (FAVT) Exhibition Opening Events, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung partnered with the German Cultural Institute, the Goethe-Zentrum Kampala, hosting a public symposium on the challenges and opportunities of a rising middle-class in Africa in general and Uganda in particular.

Strengthening understanding of criminal provisions to protect the rights of women and children

Training Workshop
A training seminar on the criminal provisions under the Penal Code 2015 to protect the rights of women and children was successfully co-organised by Ministry of Justice and KAS Vietnam. The training was well attended by nearly 100 participants who came from different sectors, including but not limited to prosecution, adjudication, women’s union, children’s protection and care from both central and provincial levels. Presenters of the workshop were among top experienced experts/scholars on this mentioned themes. During the event, speakers gave audiences the overview of newly changed regulations over women’s and children lawful rights which were both constituted in The Constitution Law 2013 as well as The Penal Code 2015. At the event, participants also had chance to listen to emerging crimes which women and children are victims of, for example: child abuse, women’s sexual attack…and the need of having soon endorsed decree guiding how to prosecute and adjudicate those crimes. At the workshop, local participants also raised their concerns that having applied and implemented laws in practical is still a gap. There are many cases at their localities, especially the ones involved offenders who are under 16 years of age, that still pending because judicators are unclear on which [judicial] guidelines should be applied as there are overlapping/unclear in those guidelines. Making an opening remark at the workshop, KAS Representative, Mr. Peter Girke highly appreciated the strong political will of government of Vietnam in its efforts to finalisation of legal framework in pursuing the state rule of law. However, Mr. Girke also raised a question on how much of those written letters, how much of the spirit of this commendable text, has been transferred to the practice, to real life? How effective is the implementation of the various provisions…these concerns were fruitfully discussed during the event between policy makers and practitioners.
