Die MeToo-Debatte

Endlich angekommen in Griechenland

Inmitten der andauernden Pandemie findet in der griechischen Öffentlichkeit kaum ein ande-res Thema als das herbeigesehnte Ende des Lockdowns größere Beachtung. Und weil auch die Türkei, üblicherweise verlässlicher Lieferant hochemotionaler Debatten, im Vorfeld des nächsten EU-Gipfels Dialogbereitschaft signalisiert, dominierten bis vor kurzem die aktuellen Zahlen der Neuinfektionen, die der Krankenhauseinlieferungen und der Geschäftsschließun-gen fast ausschließlich die Berichterstattung. Doch seitdem die Modezeitschrift „Marie Claire“ im Januar ein explosives Interview über sexuelle Belästigung veröffentlichte, hat sich das geändert.

Albania on the Cusp of Parliamentary Elections

Albania will elect its next parliament on 25 April. Prime Minister Edi Rama from the Socialist Party aims for re-election and his third mandate. Contender Lulzim Basha from the Democratic Party wants to prevent this.

Less than two months before the national parliamentary elections, Albanian parties are starting to position themselves. The opposition is trying to close the political ranks with an alliance of more than one dozen parties. It focuses its electoral campaign on the ailing economy with rising unemployment, mass migration as well as low levels of trust in the judicial system. The ruling Socialists point to the many infrastructure projects taking place across the country and place their hopes on Prime Minister Rama’s charisma. The debate on opening EU accession negotiations still hovers in the background. In principle, the election is also shaped by the special circumstances of the corona pandemic.

Parlamentswahlen stabilisieren Côte d’Ivoire

Am 6. März 2021 waren knapp 7,5 Millionen wahlberechtigte Ivorer aufgerufen, eine neue Nationalversammlung zu wählen. Zivilgesellschaftliche Beobachtergruppen qualifizieren die Wahl als inklusiv und heben den überwiegend friedlichen Ablauf hervor. Gut vier Monate nach der Besorgnis erregenden Präsidentschaftswahl mit über 85 Todesopfern gewinnt das Land am Golf von Guinea damit wieder an politischer Stabilität. Gleichzeitig sorgt der krankheitsbedingte Tod von Premierminister Hamed Bakayoko am 10. März 2021 für Trauer und neue Fragezeichen in Côte d’Ivoire. Erst im Juli 2020 verstarb der damalige Premier Amadou Gon Coulibaly, ebenfalls aus gesundheitlichen Gründen.

Politica por inteiro

Tracking and Analysis of Brazilian environmental and climate policy

"Política por Inteiro" aims to provide a reliable, recurring and comparable data base on public policy signals and propositions in the environmental area in a "friendly" format and with credible data, and that creates a common "memory" about national decisions. Through the monitoring of government actions and rhetoric, systematic analysis of the situation and associated risks and the production and dissemination of information, it is intended to provide a tool to identify signals, interpret trends and consolidate them in an aggregate manner, using data science to inform citizens, advocacy networks and decision makers themselves. Each month an outlook is produced with the signals detected in the monitoring and monthly online events are also carried out to analyze the situation. The February 2021 outlook is available here. For more information and full access to the monitoring platform, visit the project website:
