ANALYSE FOR POLITIKEN
ANALYSE FOR POLITIKEN

Regeringen har lanceret en ny strategi for økonomisk diplomati: ’Adgang til verden - Nye veje til vækst’. Den understøtter ny-orienteringen af Danmarks relationer med modtagere af udviklingsbistand mod fremme af økonomisk vækst og danske erhvervsinteresser. Det skaber et dilemma. De traditionelle modtagerlande gennemlever nemlig en tilbagegang i demokrati og menneskerettigheder, og dansk økonomisk diplomati kan let opfattes som støtte til magthavere, der indskrænker demokratiet.

SHUGHULIKA
SHUGHULIKA

I 2013 var jeg med til at udvikle grundlaget for SHUGHULIKA ('make yourself busy' på swahili), hvor en stor gruppe danske unge hvert andet år rejser afsted til Tanzania for at bo hos lokale tanzanianske unge og deres familier. Det er der kommet ganske gode resultater ud af. Bl.a. fordi de unge forberedes over 1,5 år, selv tjener penge til rejsen, og fordi projektet er forankret hos tanzanianere med erfaring fra kulturmøde, og der er lærere med superpædagogiske talenter med på turen :-).

Afrikanske Stemmer på P1/DR

Jeg deltog i P1-programmet d. 25. februar, der varmede op til premieren på TV-dramaserien "Liberty", baseret på Jakob Ejersbos roman, om livet som dansker i Tanzania. Det handler om de indgroede fordomme og forholder sig til de dilemmaer, man bliver tvunget til at forholde sig til, når man rejser ud.

Political Conflict Triggers Turmoil in South Sudan, Leaving Hundreds Dead The tensions within South Sudan’s so-called “transitional” government, which was formed on April 29, reached a boiling point earlier this month when an altercation involving President Salva Kiir and the Vice President Riek Machar, who have long been political rivals, swiftly unraveled into an armed conflict that lasted for several days and left hundreds dead.
