Research - Labour shifting by 2030 in Vietnam to drive industrialisation and modernisation

The improvement of human resources is currently considered one of the breakthrough stages to ensure economic growth and achieve the goals of industrialization and modernization of the economy. The labor transition process in Vietnam has been relatively slow and is facing many bottlenecks such as training quality, skills, age factors, post- transition livelihoods... Labor transition also poses significant challenges from external factors such as technological development, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, international integration that changes production patterns and labor demands.

EU Approach to Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific: from Strategy to Practice

Phase 3: The EU’s Indo-Pacific Strategy in a New Context

Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region is crucial to implementing the international community’s global agenda. Over the years, the EU has consistently made significant contributions in the region in terms of development cooperation. The EU Council Conclusions on an EU Strategy for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific launched in April 2021 affirms that the EU should reinforce its strategic focus, presence and actions in the Indo-Pacific with the aim of contributing to the stability, security, prosperity and sustainable development of the region, based on the promotion of democracy, rule of law, human rights and international law. In that context, a 3-phase-research on “the EU Approach to Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific: from Strategy to Practice” has been conducted by USSH Hanoi with sponsorship from KAS Vietnam. Its aim is to learn about the European Union’s approach to cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region and impacts on regional countries.

Inklusion von Menschen mit Behinderung in Vietnam

Inklusion weltweit – Aktueller Stand aus Vietnam

Menschen mit Behinderung haben in Vietnam mit zahlreichen Problemen zu kämpfen. Nicht nur durch fehlende Mobilität in Großstädten, deren Infrastrukturen oftmals nicht auf ihre Bedürfnisse ausgerichtet sind; sie erhalten dazu kaum Hilfe vom Staat. Neben finanziellen Existenzängsten müssen Menschen mit Behinderung in Vietnam so auch einen erschwerten Zugang zu Bildung beklagen. Circa 7% der Bevölkerung in Vietnam sind betroffen, sie leiden mitunter an den Spätfolgen des chemischen Entlaubungsmittels Agent Orange, eingesetzt von der US-Armee während des Vietnamkriegs. Für die KAS ist es wichtig, diese Situation zu thematisieren und dazu beizutragen, ein gleichberechtigtes Umfeld in Vietnam zu schaffen.
