Lecture by Federico M. Rossi
National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) at the National University of San Martín (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires
Description
 

Latin America has seen the rise of social movements and conflicts in the streets in the last year. The continent is in turmoil. In his talk, Federico Rossi will draw on extensive research about the unemployed workers movement (the piqueteros) in Argentina as well as on related mobilizations across Latin America to shed light on these emerging dynamics. The piquetero movement has been the largest movement of unemployed people in the world and transformed Argentine politics to the extent of becoming part of the governing coalition for more than a decade.

Buchpräsentation und Diskussion mit Cem Özdemir, Naika Foroutan und Ruud Koopmans
Description


In großen Teilen der Welt ist Demokratie inzwischen zur Norm geworden. Genau umgekehrt sieht es in der islamischen Welt aus: 53 Prozent der Länder sind autoritär regiert, nur vier Prozent demokratisch. Immer mehr Muslime fliehen vor Diktatur und Unfreiheit, Terror und Krieg, Armut und Arbeitslosigkeit.

Keynote Lecture by Janine R. Wedel
Description

The lecture will take stock of the transformation of policy elites and intermediary organizations in contemporary politics. Myriad new spaces of policy, governance, and influencing have opened up over the past several decades, and ever-more intermediary entities and players have arisen to fill them. These intermediaries, increasingly novel entities and players that defy classification, have reorganized relations with states in a remade ecosystem characterized by more porous and blurred boundaries.

Lecture by Thomas Kalinowski, Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea
Description

Since the global financial crisis of 2008/09, international cooperation has failed to curb volatile financial markets. Changes in the global rules of finance discussed in the G20 during the last decade remain limited, and it is uncertain whether they are suitable to help mitigate and manage future crises to come. Thomas Kalinowski argues that this failure is not the result of the ‘nature’ of the international system, the clash of national egoisms, or a lack of leadership.
