Støt opstarten af et nyt dansk udenrigspolitisk webmagasin

Vi oplever i stigende grad et behov for en ny journalistik platform, der vil give plads til global, grænseløs journalistik om steder, personer og emner, som bliver ignoreret eller overset af nyhedsmedierne – såvel danske som internationale. Store dele af verden får næsten ingen opmærksomhed, og det skaber vrangforestillinger om verdens tilstand og begrænser danskernes udsyn på et tidspunkt, hvor vi mere end nogensinde før er forbundet med resten af kloden. Derfor er der brug for et medie, der tør overraske, overrumple og udfordre dets brugere. Det vil vi med webmagasinet Korrespondenterne.

Referat fra FAUs møde i Udenrigsministeriet. 

Den 29. januar var FAUs to talspersoner, Søren Jeppesen og Annette Skovsted Hansen, til møde i Udenrigsministeriet. Her udtrykte de deres bekymning om konsekvenserne af de vedtagne besperelser på udviklingsområdet, særligt udviklingsforskningen. Ved mødet drøftede de mulighederne for at få udviklingsforskningen med i Udenrigsministeriets udenrigspolitiske strategi, der skrives i løbet af foråret parallelt med Taksøe-Jensen udvalgets rapport.

Bogpræsentation: Higher Education and Capacity Building in Africa

Kom til præsentation af bogen Higher Education and Capacity Building in Africa: The geography and power of knowledge under changing conditions, der udgives på Routledge 2016. Bogen analyserer, hvad der sker, når man laver kapacitetsopbygning på universitetsniveau i Afrika - hvordan påvirkes den lokale vidensproduktion og hvordan er relationerne mellem forskerne i det globale syd og nord? Kapitlerne er skrevet af en lang række forfattere, der på forskellige vis har været involveret i kapacitetsopbygning i Afrika. Der vil være en præsentation af bogens konklusioner og perspektiver, samt oplæg der diskuterer disse ud fra både et forskningsmæssig og udviklingsmæssigt perspektiv.

Bogpræsentationen foregår torsdag d. 7. Januar, i Aud. 12 på Center for Afrikastudier (CAS), Købmagergade 46, 4. sal kl. 16 -18.
