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.
