New publication: Left to its Fate: Arab Society in Israel under the Shadow of the “Arab Spring”

Published by the Konrad Adenauer Program for Jewish-Arab Cooperation, Tel Aviv University

The wave of the uprisings also known as the “Arab Spring” was undoubtedly one of the most important and formative events in the history of the modern Middle East. This book examines the influence of these uprisings on the Arab society in Israel, especially focusing on the unique relationship between the Arab minority in Israel and the state. It offers a new perspective of how the instability in the Arab region and its dissolution affected the internal dynamics in Arab society in Israel and changed its attitude toward the state. The most important insight that emerges from this research is that the deep disappointment in the Arab region has led to a more pragmatic and rational attitude of the Arab minority in Israel towards the state.

„The Troubles“ again? – Der Brexit und die Terrorismusgefahr in Nordirland

Der Brexit reißt in Nordirland alte Wunden auf: Er schürt Unruhe unter der Bevölkerung und fördert Extremismus und eventuell sogar einen neuen Terrorismus. Eine neue Kampagne von Anhängern nationalistischer Milizen bzw. Überresten nationalistischer Paramilitärs hält die Region und Großbritannien seit Januar 2019 in Atem. Die seit Januar 2017 anhaltende Regierungskrise in Nordirland gilt als die längste Zerreißprobe einer Demokratie zu Friedenszeiten ohne handlungsfähige Regierung.

The Medical Field

How Female Health Workers Have Changed the Face of the Industry

Women have always been healers. As mothers and grandmothers, women have always nursed the sick in their homes. As midwives, women have always cared for people in their communities. Yet, when medicine became established as a formal profession globally, women were shut out. However, they didn’t seat back and look on, but rather waged a long battle to gain access to medical education and hospital training. Since then, women have overcome prejudices and discrimination to create and broaden opportunities within the profession. Gradually, they have been able to carve out successful careers in every aspect of medicine. This article highlights the significant contributions that women have made to the health care system in Uganda by narrating stories of female doctors who work tirelessly, every day, to improve the country’s health sector with tremendous dedication, vigor, and passion.

Developments in the Geneva-based international organizations between May and July 2019

Over the last few months, diplomats as well as staff members of international organizations in Geneva were kept on the move: in the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the International Labour Organization (ILO), numerous heads of states and governments came to Geneva. In addition, several high ranking meetings and conferences took place, such as the annual World Health Assembly (WHA) and the 41st session of the UN Human Rights Council. Reports on the future of world trade (WTO), on land use and climate change (IPCC, „World Climate Council“) as well as on global refugee trends were looking at the future with concern.
