Quo vadis, Ruhrgebiet?

Criminal liability of Legal persons in Vietnamese Criminal Laws

Training
In cooperation with KAS, the Department of Criminal and Administrative Legislation of the Ministry of Justice organized a training on the 2015 Penal Code's provisions on the criminal liability of commercial legal persons and regulations on order and the role of defense counsel in criminal cases which are related to commercial legal persons that commit a crime. In the 2015 Penal Code, Vietnam introduced for the first time the concept of legal persons in its criminal code which led to major changes in the practice of criminal law enforcement. It is meant to effectively fight crimes of companies, especially to combat serious violations of economic and environmental laws as well as money laundry and terrorism financing. The training seminar provided the participant, which were mostly members of provincial criminal courts, with important information on criminal policies which will have to be applied to handle the violations of commercial legal persons and to ensure their liability. Even though the law was already ratified in 2017, there are no practical cases made yet, which is why this seminar was on a theoretical bases and the participants could ask their questions and raise concerns or issues. KAS and its partner (MOJ) are looking forward to further seminars to discuss the practical experiences which will hopefully be conducted soon.

Interpreting Chinese perception of International norms in the 21st century

Seminar
On 21. June 2019, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV) in cooperation with KAS organized the twelfth conference of the China Talk series. This time, Prof. Shin Kawashima of the University of Tokyo gave his views on interpreting Chinese perceptions of international norms in a modern context. The discussion engaged with the question whether China respects, resists or reforms international norms in global governance; whether China has become even an agenda-setter for international norms, and how China works with major international institutions. Prof. Kawashima gave interesting insides to the perception of international laws of the Xi Jinping-era by using a discourse analysis of speeches and official documents. He explained concepts and shifts in China’s diplomacy. One interesting key diplomatic philosophy he elaborated is the concept of a “correct sense of justice” which would legitimize the BRI as part of the claim for a new model of international relations underpinned by “win-win cooperation’s”. The commentators Prof. Nguyen Huy Quy and Dr. Do Thi Thuy agreed that further consideration and comparison between China’s saying and its action is needed to understand the whole picture of the perception of international norms. In the end, participants were encouraged to ask questions and an interesting discussion came into being.

The 5th Ocean Dialogue: ASEAN Cooperation in the South China Sea

Discussion
On 18. June 2019, KAS Vietnam and its partner, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV), hosted the fifth Ocean Dialogue. The event consisted of a thorough discussion between regional and international experts which discussed the possibilities and difficulties of ASEAN cooperation concerning the South China Sea dispute. Geographically, the dispute lies at the heart of ASEAN and is troubling the region ever since. At the centre of the discussion were traditional key issues such as the high-military equipment and the Sino-US competition in the region as well as non-traditional issues, for instance environmental-pollution and how a future cooperation in the region could look like. Mr. Edcel Ibarra, from the Philippines' Foreign Service Institute, elaborated two possible future senarios: The ASEAN + and the ASEAN – cases. In the first one, the non-claiming states would be engaged in multilateral agreements and discussions while in the second one, only claiming states would participate in the talks, which would have a huge risk of marginalizing the other states. Participants had the opportunity to share their opinions and raise questions in the end. The dispute remains topical which is why KAS and its partner (DAV) are looking forward to the next Ocean Dialogue.

The use of database management software for the service of the people’s petitions

Training
On 24. and 25. June 2019, the Comission on People’s Petition of the Standing Committee of the Vietnam National Assembly in cooperation with KAS organized a training program for the handling of online petitions. In times of digitalization, citizens have numerous new ways to participate in the political life through the internet. To analyze and respond adequately to online petition, the committee developed a software which combines the possibility for citizens to submit petitions and enables the committee to examine them. In order to deal with the challenges and opportunities of the software, the training seminar provided skills and technique in using software to analyze the data and to answer voters’ petitions. Participants were encouraged to ask questions and to give feedback on the practical use of the software.
