CfP: 2021 IKSU Annual International Conference. University of Central Lancashire, 26–27 April 2021 (Deadline: 20-08-28)

The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought disproportionately negative effects on communities based on race, class, age, and health. At the same time, it has amplified expressions of anti-Asian racism in the West and reinforced authoritarian repression of marginalized peoples in Sinophone spaces such as Hong Kong, Xinjiang, and Guangzhou.

CfP: One Belt, One Road – Chinas alternative Globalisierungsstrategie (Deadline: 2020-07-15)

Chinas Kommunistische Partei möchte „One Belt, One Road“ als einen wichtigen Baustein beim „Auf-bau einer Schicksalsgemeinschaft der Menschheit“ verstehen, als eine neue Art der Globalisierung, die Unterentwicklung und Rückständigkeit überwindet und koloniale bzw. neokoloniale Ausbeutung und Abhängigkeit vermeidet. Kritiker sehen in der chinesischen Strategie hingegen ein Mittel, andere Länder von China abhängig zu machen und sich einseitig Ressourcen und Absatzmärkte zu sichern.
Ist „One Belt, One Road“ eine neue Strategie kooperativer Globalisierung? Oder geht es um eine im-periale Strategie mit ...

Hilfe für die Sundarbans in Indien nach Verwüstung durch den Zyklon Amphan

Der Zyklon Amphan hat in einigen Teilen Südasiens – in Bangladesch, Indien und Sri Lanka – schwere Schäden und insgesamt mehr als 100 Todesopfer gefordert. Besonders betroffen ist der indische Bundesstaat Westbengalen. Als der Zyklon am 20. Mai 2020 auf die bengalische Region traf, bremsten jedoch die im Süden gelegenen Mangrovenwälder der Sundarbans die Stärke des Zyklons und verhinderten somit noch schwerere Schäden in Westbengalens Hauptstadt Kalkutta und in anderen Teilen der Region. Große Gebiete der Mangrovenwälder selbst wurden allerdings ...
