Seminar: Your smartphone kills workers in China

18. May 2016 - 15:40

Your smartphone and many of your household items are produced in China. We all know this and we know that it is a consequence of globalisation - of companies from the global North, including Denmark, moving their production to China. We've come to know China as ‘the factory of the world’. But few are aware of the staggering numbers of workers employed in this factory – more than 270 million people! That is half the population EU. We know even less about their working conditions, their life aspirations, sorrows and joys.

Public Guest Lecture: Religion, Atheism and the Quest for Indonesian Identity

10. May 2016 - 16:51

The state of Indonesia is neither a theocracy, nor it is a laical state. In both the state ideology of Pancasila and in the constitution, Religion – conceptualized as monotheistic believe – is portrayed as the foundation of the state. Religion is crucial for the construction of a national Identity in the culturally highly diverse country. The state supposes to guarantee the freedom of believe. This freedom, however, is limited to the acknowledged religions.

Public Lecture - What Does China's "New Normal" Mean for Local Governments?

9. May 2016 - 10:56

As China's growth decelerates, provincial and municipal officials must brace themselves for the impact on their regions. Over-capacity sectors will see plant closures and redundancies, local debt must be re-paid (or restructured through debt-for-bonds swaps) while new industrial templates, urbanisation quotas, vastly improved transport links and newly-identified "city clusters" all offer possibilities for regional development.

Public lunch talk - China’s Ambition in the South China Sea: Hegemonic Power Versus Maritime Order

9. May 2016 - 10:50

Over the past four decades, conflicts in the South China Sea have waxed and waned in response to regional security dynamics. Today, the complex interplay between rising nationalism, resource competition, and geopolitical rivalry between the United States and China means that this semi-enclosed maritime space is now at the centre of an unfolding crisis that threatens to undermine regional as well as global stability.
