Rethinking Democracy: Strengthening Topical Issues

Democracy

This publication emanates from a Call for Papers that KAS published on the 22nd of April 2021 with the main objective being to offer political science scholars, practitioners/activists from the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), legal practitioners and any other politically active individual with the platform to make contributions on current topics of political representation and elections in Kenya. This publication is therefore made out of four interdisciplinary areas, namely; 1. Political representation and its relationship with service delivery. 2. Political culture, reforms and elections in Kenya. 3. Election management and voter education. 4. Finally, is the influence of Civil Society Organizations on reforms and political processes significant enough? With this approach and publication in general, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung believes that the knowledge and experiences will contribute to the larger discourse of making democracy work even better for the case of Kenya.

Україна: 30 років на європейському шляху.

Презентація дослідження

24 серпня 1991р., 30 років тому прийнято Акт про проголошення незалежності України, який було підтверджено на Всеукраїнському референдумі 1 грудня 1991р. За період 30-річної історії незалежної України (1991-2021рр.) в державі відбулися кардинальні зміни в усіх без винятку сферах. Прийнятими в перші роки незалежності законодавчими актами були визначені, а у 1996р. Конституцією України — закріплені засади розбудови Української держави як демократичної, правової та соціальної. Значно розширився перелік гарантованих Конституцією держави прав і свобод громадян, передусім, політичних, принциповим досягненням стало створення реальних можливостей для їх реалізації і захисту. У країні утворилися нові інститути, такі як: приватна власність, ринкова економіка, вільне підприємництво, багатопартійність, плюралістичне громадянське суспільство, свобода слова та вільні від цензури медіа тощо.

Jüngster Putsch in Guinea markiert dritte militärische Machtübernahme in weniger als 1,5 Jahren in der Region

Am Freitag, den 01. Oktober 2021, wurde Mamady Doumbouya zum neuen Präsidenten der rohstoffreichen Nation Guinea vereidigt. Auch Deutschland bezieht Bauxit für die Aluminiumproduktion aus Guinea.

Was ist in dem westafrikanischen Küstenstaat passiert und was bedeutet der politische Umbruch für die Region?
