The Responsibility to Protect: From Evasive to Reluctant Action?

The Role of Global Middle Powers
In this publication, researchers from leading think-tanks in the four GIBSA countries present a variety of viewpoints on Right to Protect "R2P". While the GIBSA countries demonstrate widespread support for R2P, there is no single overriding position. Many of their official standings mirror the arguments on R2P in the global discourse. The publication aims to stimulate new thinking and to nurture a common understanding of the use and limitations of R2P. This discussion is urgently needed given that many internal conflicts are still being waged that put civilian populations at risk.

Besuch bei der Okumhlope High School in KwaZulu Natal

Ein Bericht von Sina Hener
Am 9. Dezember 2011 war es endlich soweit: Ich habe zum ersten Mal die Okumhlope High School (OHS) in KwaZulu Natal, Südafrika besuchen dürfen. Nachdem das Projekt „EinStein für Afrika“ nun fast zwei Jahre existiert und schon zum zweiten Mal ein beachtlicher Betrag von 3600 Euro vom Albert-Einstein-Gymnasium in Ravensburg für die OHS gesammelt wurde, konnte ich dieses Jahr das Geld persönlich übergeben. Meine Anwesenheit bei der Geldübergabe war deshalb möglich, weil ich im Esimphiwe Baby Home in Richmond in der Provinz KwaZulu Natal ein freiwilliges Soziales Jahr ableiste.
