    Conference: “Cultural Pluralism in Cities of the Global South”, 20 – 21 March 2019 (RSCAS, EUI, Italy)

    Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia

    Conference “Cultural Pluralism in Cities of the Global South” 20 – 21 March 2019, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies

    This conference focuses on cities that are emerging (or striving to emerge) as regional centres of power in the Global South. We focus on capital cities and major urban centres in Asian, African, and Latin American countries at different stages of the nation building process. We want to unpack the power relations within the city and the ways in which the city projects itself beyond the national scale and positions itself both at a wider regional level and within global cultural hierarchies.

    The regional and international actors involved in the war in Syria have significantly influenced the Syrian regime’s capacity to reassert its control over the country. While government forces have regained military control over most of the territory, to what extent are the political agendas and influence of external actors shaping the Syrian regime’s ability to regain its sovereignty over the country?

    Presentation of the World Bank 2019 World Development Report "The Changing Nature of Jobs" (RSCAS, EUI, Italy)

    15.30 - 17.30 Theatre, Badia Fiesolana

    The World Bank Annual Report will be presented at the EUI by the Co-Directors of the World Development Report 2019, Simeon Djankov and Federica Saliola.

    The World Bank's 'World Development Report (WDR) 2019: The Changing Nature of Work’ analyses how the nature of work is changing as a result of advances in technology. Fears that robots will take jobs have dominated the discussion on the future of work, but the Report finds that on balance this appears to be unsubstantiated. Work is constantly reshaped by technological progress. Firms adopt new ways of production, markets expand, and societies evolve. Overall, technology brings opportunity, creating new jobs, increasing productivity, and delivering effective public services.

    The Report analyses these changes and considers how governments can best respond. Investing in human capital must be a priority for governments in order for workers to build the skills in demand in the labor market. In addition, governments need to enhance social protection and extend it to all people in society, irrespective of the terms on which they work. To fund these investments in human capital and social protection, the Report offers some suggestions as to how governments can mobilise additional revenues by increasing the tax base.

    Lecture “Ukraine Between Elections: The New President and the October 2019 Parliamentary Vote”, 24 April 2019 (IIR, Czech Republic)

    IIR

    Lecture: Ukraine Between Elections: The New President and the October 2019 Parliamentary Vote”

    When? 24th of April 2019

    Where? IIR

    This year’s presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine will determine the future of this country for several years to come. The stakes are multidimensional: Will the old power-pyramid or even clan system crumble? Will the elections complete or reverse the 2014 Revolution of Dignity impulse? What kind of support will the new (or old) president have after the parliamentary elections in October? Could the elections start a new era in Ukrainian politics in such regards as gender balance or deoligarchization?

    Our non-resident senior fellow Andreas Umland will try to deal with these issues in his upcoming presentation at the IIR.

    Colloque International: "Construire les politiques de lutte contre la pauvreté urbaine à partir du terrain" (SPCEE, France)

    PARIS – SCIENCES PO

    Construire les politiques de lutte contre la pauvreté urbaine à partir du terrain : De l’analyse de la mise en œuvre des politiques publiques à l’identification des processus d’insertion sociale et économique,  Colloquium, Paris 4-5 July 2019

    Organisé dans le cadre du programme de recherche MARG-IN, qui est financé par l’Agence nationale de la recherche, ce colloque entend contribuer aux débats en cours sur la lutte contre la pauvreté en identifiant, à partir de l’examen des jeux d’acteurs liés à la mise en œuvre des politiques, les processus d’insertion sociale et économique qui pourraient servir de base à la construction de nouveaux dispositifs en phase avec la demande sociale et avec les réalités locales.

    Il se déroulera à Paris les 4 et 5 juillet 2019. Pendant ces deux jours, les chercheurs seront invités à échanger leurs points de vue avec les acteurs institutionnels, les acteurs de terrain (professionnels de l’action sociale et militants associatifs) et les personnes en situation précaire. Ces échanges serviront de base à l’écriture d’un texte commun jetant les bases d’une approche de la lutte contre la pauvreté « par le bas », et à large diffusion.
