South Africa as a strategic partner for Germany?
Perspectives of the German-South African Cooperation
Germany and South Africa cooperate on a bilateral and increasingly on a multilateral level. As currently holding the presidency of the EU and AU, the last few months both governments prepared the summit of the two regional organizations originally scheduled for autumn 2020. As non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council they have collaborated to assess and resolve conflict-ridden situations. Will South Africa continue to be an important partner for Germany in solving future challenges at the global and continental level and in strengthening multilateralism?

From Fake News to Deep Fakes: On the Threat of Deep Fakes to Democracy and Society
For years, the influence of fake news and the manipulation of public and political perception has been a threat to political systems. Especially during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories have risen to new heights, as non-state actors – among them extremists and populists – tried to take advantage of the situation. But also state actors have engaged in the distribution of fake news concerning the virus, putting their own citizens at risk.

Russia-China: Emerging Alliance or Eternal Rivals?

Southern Africa after the Election Year 2019
In May 2019 the African National Congress (ANC) won another, though this time unconvincing, electoral victory in South Africa. President Ramaphosa has to deal with a difficult political and economic situation after the “State Capture” of the network around former president Jacob Zuma. Ramaphosa’s “New Dawn” pledges of economic growth and anti-corruption have so far not been implemented with the desired effectiveness, not least due to intra-party disputes within the ANC. At the same time, the largest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA), struggles to find a new strategy after internal disputes and the election of a new leadership which raises new questions about the role of opposition parties and coalition building.
Democracy matters in global health
Democracy has played little role in the recent history of global health, but new research shows democracy is becoming more important as the health needs of low- and middle-income nations shift from infectious diseases to noncommunicable diseases. Mr. Bollyky will present the findings of the first comprehensive assessment of the links between democracy, adult life expectancy, and cause-specific mortality in 170 countries between 1970 and 2016.
