Ein Küstenland auf Schlingerkurs
25.06.2024 von 18:15 bis 19:45

German shipbuilding has been in a permanent crisis for decades and yet is constantly reinventing itself, with varying degrees of success. Mass shipbuilding has completely disappeared, but maritime cores survive in niches of special shipbuilding. Military shipbuilding presents a mixed picture: submarine builders are world-class and continue to enjoy success, while gray surface shipbuilding has suffered many setbacks. However, the Ukraine war and the slow awakening of politicians seem to have given it a chance to reanimate itself just in time. Where we stand, what we are doing wrong and what we could do better is explained in more detail as one of our special German maritime challenges.

Modernisierung des Rechtssystems in China
27.06.2024 von 18:30 bis 20:00

Since the beginning of Xi Jinping's tenure as ‘paramount leader’, China's legal system has undergone a major transformation. Following the reconstruction of principles, procedures and responsibilities since the end of the Cultural Revolution, the civil justice system in China has been rapidly developed and constantly expanded to fulfil its function in a changing and increasingly complex society and economy. The latest event in the dialogue series ‘Understanding China's Modernity - European Reflections’, which is being held in cooperation with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, is dedicated to the Chinese legal system and how it works.

Die Bekämpfung von Piraterie & Terrorismus auf Hoher See
02.07.2024 von 18:15 bis 19:45

In the third decade of the 21st century, it is becoming increasingly clear that we are facing major challenges. Humanity's hunger for resources is growing, conflicts over the use of space are increasing and the importance of the oceans for the world's growing population seems to be increasing at the same rate. But where exactly do these challenges lie and where are new approaches to tackling them emerging? In a colourful bouquet of topics, the second series of the maritime lecture series shows the diversity of the tasks facing business, politics and science at sea. Energy issues and the movement of goods, raw materials and knowledge production, but also classic topics such as order at sea and the security of nations will be on our minds this semester. And as a result, it will once again become clear that although humanity lives on land, it is existentially dependent on what happens in the blue water column of our planet.

What Triggers Extreme Food Insecurity? The case of Somalia
03.07.2024 von 14:00 bis 16:00

Join us to explore the complex interplay of climatic shocks, violent conflicts, and food insecurity in Somalia from 2017 to 2023. This event will provide a thorough causal analysis covering Somalia's 18 administrative regions and 74 districts. Explore the connections between climatic shocks, conflicts, and famine through georeferenced data and the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), a comprehensive tool developed by the FAO and 14 other organizations.
