Proteste im Iran

Versagt die feministische Außenpolitik Deutschlands?

Seit dem Tod der 22-jährigen Mahsa ‚Jina‘ Amini im Polizeigewahrsam gehen Menschen in Iran – allen voran Frauen und junge Leute – auf die Straße und trotzen der massiven Gewalt der Sicherheitskräfte. Längst ist der Protest umgeschlagen von einem Fokus auf die Unterdrückung von Frauen zu einem von Menschen vieler Schichten getragenen Widerstand gegen das System. Die Bundesregierung sucht gemeinsam mit ihren europäischen Partnern nach Wegen, um auf die Unruhen adäquat zu reagieren. Was die bisherigen Antworten über die Dilemmata der internationalen Politik verraten, erklärt Cornelius Adebahr in seiner Analyse für Business Insider.

Socio-Economic Challenges and Jordan’s Foreign Policy

Employment, Trade, and International Cooperation – Perspectives from the Region and Europe (Workshop I)

Grievances have been growing over Jordan’s socio-economic and political problems, including high public debt, a significant current account deficit, and high unemployment. In June 2018, former Prime Minister Hani al-Mulki was forced to resign after mass protests swept the country. Jordan’s socio-economic challenges are further amplified by its difficult external environment. An interconnected rather than separate challenge, it has resulted in a significant influx of refugees and a more difficult trade and investment environment.

Socio-Economic Development and Violent Extremism in Morocco (Workshop I)

Morocco’s Regional Policy, Migration, and (De-)Radicalization – Perspectives from the Region and Europe

The past years have seen a reorientation of Morocco’s regional foreign policy and an acceleration of Morocco’s economic integration with Sub-Saharan Africa. At the same time, socio-economic challenges at home persist and have reinforced domestic economic and political grievances, which have also acted as key drivers of radicalization. Consequently, some have criticized the increasing investments in countries south of the Sahara and called for greater domestic engagement to improve the country’s situation.
