Título: 2008-05-07 - Fórum Permanente dos Assuntos do Mar
Enviado por: Sailor Girl em Maio 05, 2008, 11:50:40 am
Trata-se da primeira Reunião Plenária do «Fórum Permanente dos Assuntos do Mar» e realiza-se na Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian já na Quarta-feira, dia 7 de Maio de 2008. O período de inscrição para esta sessão plenária já encerrou (em 30 de Abril), mas o elevado número de adesões (mais de 400) e de candidaturas à direcção (28) é uma prova de cidadania e do enorme interesse, vontade e motivação por parte da Sociedade Civil para assumir um papel cada vez mais activo nos Assuntos do Mar!

A lista final de candidatos à Direcção do Fórum (perfil e carta de motivação) encontra-se disponível no site www.emam.com.pt (http://www.emam.com.pt)

Darei mais notícias. Penso que este Forum é uma excelente oportunidade para «explicarmos» aos políticos a importância do Mar em todos os níveis, em particular para a Defesa.

* * * * *

Recordo que o Fórum Permanente para os Assuntos do Mar é uma medida da primeira acção prioritária da Estratégia Nacional para o Mar.
Neste sentido, a Comissão Interministerial para os Assuntos do Mar (CIAM) definiu como objectivo a criação de um “…Fórum Permanente para os Assuntos do Mar, aberto a toda a sociedade civil, e promover, nesse âmbito, o estabelecimento de um grupo de reflexão e acompanhamento para os assuntos do mar, onde participem personalidades de reconhecido mérito, organizações não governamentais e entidades privadas.”
O Fórum está aberto a todos os que manifestem expressamente a vontade de se tornarem membros e tem como princípios orientadores:

• Promover uma visão intersectorial e multidisciplinar dos assuntos do mar e a expressão de perspectivas e pontos de vista diversos;
• Funcionar como uma plataforma informal de contacto entre o Governo e a Sociedade Civil;
• Contribuir para a comunicação e partilha de informação associada aos Assuntos do Mar entre os seus membros e toda a sociedade civil;
• Pautar as suas actividades e a prossecução da sua missão pela independência, respeito, cooperação, espírito de abertura e pela diversidade de opiniões e de novos conhecimentos.

O Fórum está aberto a todas as pessoas interessadas pelos Assuntos do Mar que adiram e cumpram o regulamento de funcionamento que for aprovado.

SIMOTAN III
NATO Council Simulation

Lisbon, 28 - 31 May 2008
School of Social and Political Sciences
Technical University of Lisbon


Citar
   The North Atlantic Council Simulation (SIMOTAN) hosted by the Portuguese Atlantic Youth Association and Portuguese Atlantic Committee represented a chance to understand NATO structure, and a tangible experience beyond the academic teachings to face the concrete challenges of the international scenario, to gain a deeper competence in the crisis management operations and to observe and reproduce the mechanism of the international organizations.

     NATO is an Alliance where members can take a joint action, on issues of common concern, in both a political and military way, but also a forum for dialogue and cooperation. During the simulation, each delegation understood that safeguarding the international order and cooperation were priorities. It is of the outmost importance to soften conflicting interests in order to find a solution that can grant the satisfaction of each party but also the respect of the common principles of the Organization. At the same time, it was clear that cooperation and consensus do not mean the dismissal of national concerns.

     The participation in the simulation has enhanced the ability to collaborate and reach a multinational approach on controversial matters and emerging crises faced by the daily activity of the Alliance. SIMOTAN helped improve the capability of mediation in the negotiation process. University students have benefited from this experience and practice their academic knowledge of the Euro-Atlantic relations. I was extremely interested to participate to this simulation because I am aware of the concrete benefits connected with this program and at the same time, of the human and professional importance of such an experience.

Local: Antigo Quartel de Transmissões de Linda-a-Velha (com percurso pelo Concelho de Oeiras)

Do programa consta, a recepção aos participantes com a distribuição de um kit de sobrevivência, a formação em parada "para revista", e um passeio em coluna militar com visita a diversos locais do Concelho de Oeiras de interesse histórico e militar, e que vai preencher a grande parte do dia.

O local da concentração será no antigo quartel de Transmissões do Exército em Linda-a-Velha, onde, durante todo o dia, vão estar expostas algumas viaturas assim como uma mostra de rádios militares da época da guerra colonial portuguesa.

Seminário Internacional "A importância das Linhas de Torres na Europa"

Nos inícios do século XIX, toda a Europa está em guerra…
Em Portugal, na sequência da segunda campanha de invasões napoleónicas, o duque de Wellington tece uma estratégia defensiva que previa a construção de três linhas de redutos, armados de peças de artilharia, reforçando os obstáculos naturais entre o Tejo e o Oceano Atlântico. O trabalho decorreu em segredo absoluto: sob o comando inglês, milhares de camponeses portugueses trabalharam na construção de 152 fortes. O empreendimento resultou na derrota francesa.
Passados dois séculos, restam os vestígios materiais destes confrontos…


ROTA HISTÓRICA DAS LINHAS DE TORRES
Seminário Internacional e inauguração do circuito de visita da Enxara
 
Com o objectivo de divulgar a especificidade do sistema militar defensivo de Lisboa, denominado por Linhas de Torres, é organizado o “Seminário Internacional sobre a Importância das Linhas de Torres na Europa”, reunindo no Auditório Municipal de Arruda dos Vinhos, nos dias 20, 21 e 22 de Novembro de 2008, alguns dos mais reputados peritos internacionais neste tipo de património.
No âmbito do programa do seminário, assinala-se ainda a inauguração do primeiro circuito de visita incluído na “Rota Histórica das Linhas de Torres”, projecto dinamizado por uma plataforma intermunicipal que congrega todos os municípios onde se implantam as fortificações: Arruda dos Vinhos, Loures, Mafra, Sobral de Monte Agraço, Torres Vedras e Vila Franca de Xira.
 
 
Seminário Internacional sobre a Importância das Linhas de Torres na Europa
Arruda dos Vinhos, 20 a 22 de Novembro de 2008


Com o Alto Patrocínio de Sua Excelência o Presidente da República Portuguesa e o apoio da Real Embaixada da Noruega, constitui o primeiro evento de visibilidade internacional promovido no âmbito da “Rota Histórica das Linhas de Torres”, projecto financiado pela Islândia, Liechtenstein e Noruega através do Mecanismo Financeiro do Espaço Económico Europeu.

O objectivo deste seminário transcende a esfera da História das Guerras Peninsulares e assume-se como uma oportunidade para chamar a atenção da população em geral, e da comunidade científica em particular, para a valorização cultural e turística deste património militar.

Para o efeito, estão criadas actividades como um  painel de abertura, comunicações livres, debates temáticos, visitas de estudo ao terreno, exposição de painéis e mostra bibliográfica.

Mais informações em www.cm-arruda.pt/seminariolinhastorres (http://www.cm-arruda.pt/seminariolinhastorres).

Inauguração do Circuito da Enxara
Serra do Socorro, 22 de Novembro de 2008


Este circuito disponibiliza à fruição do público três locais na freguesia de Enxara do Bispo, Concelho de Mafra: a Serra do Socorro, onde foi implantado o posto central de comunicações do exército anglo-luso e no qual o visitante pode conhecer o provável espaço onde se implantava o telégrafo, observar a sua réplica e ainda visitar o Centro de Interpretação (para saber mais sobre a história milenar da Serra do Socorro e os sistemas de comunicação nas Linhas de Torres); e os Fortes da Enxara (obras 28 e 29), localizados entre a 1.ª e a 2.ª linhas, tendo como objectivo estratégico a defesa da estrada Torres Vedras – Montachique, em apoio ao Quartel-general de Lord Wellington em Pêro Negro.

O programa de inauguração inicia-se às 11h30 do dia 22 de Novembro na Serra do Socorro, com transporte assegurado em autocarro, ida e volta, para os fortes da Enxara.

CONFERÊNCIA

'O novo quadro da Segurança e Defesa Europeia – Desafios e opções para Portugal'

 

Na perspectiva da ratificação e entrada em vigor, no princípio do próximo ano, do Tratado de Lisboa e à luz dos novos e significativos desenvolvimentos no ambiente estratégico de segurança internacional, a Secção de Ciência Política e Relações Internacionais, Escola de Economia e Gestão da Universidade do Minho (www.eeg.uminho.pt/riap (http://www.eeg.uminho.pt/riap)) e o Centro de Estudos EuroDefense-Portugal (eurodefense.aip.pt/), realizam uma Conferência seguida de debate subordinado ao tema “O Novo quadro da Segurança e Defesa Europeia – Desafios e opções para Portugal”, a decorrer no dia 10 de Novembro, das 14h30 às 17h30, no Auditório B1 do Complexo Pedagógico II da Universidade do Minho, em Gualtar, Braga.

Os cidadãos portugueses, sobretudo os jovens, têm participado muito pouco na concepção, construção e processo de integração da UE, que tem sido feita demasiado à margem dos europeus. Acresce que as questões de segurança e defesa colectiva não são assunto com suficiente debate, conferindo-lhes os portugueses baixa prioridade, como ficou bem patente não só na campanha eleitoral como na elevada taxa de abstenção do passado acto eleitoral para o Parlamento Europeu.

 

Em análise vai estar a reflexão e debate sobre o novo quadro de Segurança e Defesa Europeia e sua conexão com os interesses de Portugal, tendo em consideração os seguintes desenvolvimentos:

(i)   a previsível ratificação do Tratado de Lisboa;

(ii)  os novos riscos e ameaças identificados no relatório de avaliação da implementação da Estratégia Europeia de Segurança (EES);

(iii) as decisões do Conselho Europeu de 11 de Dezembro de 2008, designadamente no que se refere ao desenvolvimento de capacidades da PESD e ao reforço da coordenação civil-militar;

(iv) a nova administração dos EUA, a mudança de atitude estratégica nas relações transatlânticas e a janela de oportunidade para alcançar uma maior eficácia multilateral perante os desafios da segurança internacional;

(v) a reintegração da França na estrutura militar integrada da NATO, a revisão do Conceito Estratégico da NATO e sua incidência numa parceria estratégica renovada UE-NATO.

 

O programa e a ficha de inscrição estão disponíveis em   http://www.eeg.uminho.pt/riap/cp/sde (http://www.eeg.uminho.pt/riap/cp/sde)

ENTREVISTAS

(http://www.tormo.pt/fotos/entrevistas/gran146.jpg)
* José Fontes - Coordenador da Feira do Empreendedor

A ANJE considera importante consagrar um salão especificamente ao franchising na Feira do Empreendedor por ser um modelo de negócio talhado para jovens empreendedores, na medida em que se baseia na confiança mútua entre o “franchisador” e o “franchisado”, disse em entrevista ao Tormo.pt José Fontes, coordenador do certame, que começa já amanhã no Centro de Congressos da Alfândega do Porto. Pelo quarto ano consecutivo o evento dedica um salão às oportunidades que existem no mercado na área do franchising, um espaço que tem vindo a ganhar peso e importância junto das empresas do sector, que escolhem mais esta oportunidade para apresentarem os seu conceitos a um público cada vez mais interessado.

A 12ª edição da Feira do Empreendedor é um evento de promoção e apoio ao empreendedorismo e auto-emprego, e pelo 3º ano consecutivo dedica um salão exclusivo ao franchising. Qual o peso do franchising na resolução do crescente problema desemprego/dificuldade de integração no mercado de trabalho de jovens em Portugal?

O franchising é um modelo de negócio talhado para jovens empreendedores, na medida em que se baseia na confiança mútua entre o “franchisador” e o “franchisado”. Há desde logo um menor risco no investimento inicial, decorrente do facto de o “franchisado” usufruir do know-how, do apoio operacional e da imagem corporativa de empresas experientes e bem sucedidas no mercado. Ou seja, o empreendedor está à partida mais resguardado no seu negócio, designadamente face à concorrência. Ora, isto constitui não só um estímulo ao investimento como um factor de competitividade acrescido. Mas, por outro lado, o “franchisador” beneficia do espírito empreendedor do “franchisado” e do seu esforço para tornar o “franchise” num negócio de sucesso.
 
Porquê dedicar neste evento um salão específico para o franchising?

Pelas razões referidas na primeira questão, a ANJE considera importante consagrar um salão especificamente ao franchising. Com este salão, é possível divulgar mais eficazmente as oportunidades de negócio e de criação de auto-emprego que o franchising encerra e que já aqui descrevemos.

Que oportunidades são apresentadas nesse salão, que empresas de franchising estão normalmente presentes nesta Feira?
 
Habitualmente estão presentes na Feira do Empreendedor empresas de franchising de variadíssimos sectores da actividade económica, o que proporciona aos visitantes do evento uma visão alargada das oportunidades que este regime de negócio apresenta.
 
Que feedback têm estas empresas da participação na Feira do Empreendedor?

O feedback tem sido positivo, desde logo porque as empresas gozam de uma grande exposição pública durante a Feira do Empreendedor. O evento é visitado por milhares de pessoas e estas, na sua esmagadora maioria, procuram uma via para materializarem o seu espírito empreendedor. E essa via pode muito bem ser o franchising.

Que parcerias desenvolve actualmente a ANJE com redes e entidades de franchising em Portugal, no sentido de promover maior investimento nesta área de negócio?
 
A ANJE não está envolvida em parcerias especificamente destinadas à área do franchising.
 
Considera que pelo facto de o franchising ser um sistema que permite mais rapidamente o acesso ao mercado de trabalho, pelos mecanismos de que dispõe para a criação do próprio emprego, é mais procurado em alturas como as que atravessa hoje Portugal no que se refere ao desemprego?  

Sim, sem dúvida. Mas quando a economia se encontra estagnada, como é o caso, impõe-se uma atenção redobrada aos factores que condicionam o franchising. Os empreendedores devem definir bem a sua ideia de negócio, procurar ser criativos, introduzir elementos de diferenciação em produtos ou serviços (preço, qualidade, design, política comercial ou de marketing, etc.), analisar cuidadosamente o mercado e, claro, preparar ao pormenor o business plan, o orçamento, o enquadramento jurídico e a estratégia de gestão.
 
Estimam receber este ano 20.000 visitantes. Fazendo um balanço dos três anos de existência do Salão das Oportunidades de Franchising qual a percentagem de participação e de interesse nos negócios aí representados?

O balanço é positivo, na medida em que a participação das empresas de franchising na Feira do Empreendedor tem sido crescente e o interesse dos visitantes, embora não seja mensurável, parece-nos que se vem acentuando de ano para ano. Pelo menos é esse o feedback que temos recebido dos expositores de negócios de franchising, que revelam invariavelmente satisfação com a adesão de público e com as condições de que dispõem para apresentar as suas empresas.
 
Sendo a ANJE uma associação que apoia jovens empresários, que sinergias desenvolvem especificamente para o apoio à criação de empresas de franchising, nomeadamente ao nível de financiamento, internacionalização, integração no mercado, criação de start-ups?
 
As empresas de franchising beneficiam do mesmo tipo de apoios que todos os outros negócios promovidos pelos nossos associados, o que significa que têm acesso a um vasto conjunto de actividades, serviços e eventos que facilitam o exercício do empreendedorismo empresarial. Entre as actividades, serviços e eventos da ANJE destacam-se o incremento do empreendedorismo, dispondo para tanto de uma Academia dos Empreendedores; a divulgação de sistemas de incentivo à criação de empresas, como a Plataforma Finicia; a prestação de serviços de assistência empresarial, nomeadamente em centros de incubação de norte a sul do País; a promoção de estratégias de internacionalização e de novos paradigmas de desenvolvimento; o combate ao défice tecnológico e o apoio à inovação; a realização de acções de qualificação profissional, quer em sala quer em regime residencial; e o acesso a uma rede de networking que facilita o contacto com eventuais financiadores e parceiros de negócio.

O Salão das Oportunidades de Franchising vai manter-se nas próximas edições da Feira do Empreendedor?
 

Dado o interesse que gera entre os visitantes do evento e o grau de adesão de empresas a esse mesmo salão não vislumbramos qualquer razão para que assim não seja.

Que mais-valias para o sector, e especificamente para o norte do país?  

O Salão das Oportunidades de Franchising visa, sobretudo, promover o empreendedorismo numa área de negócios com bastantes potencialidades. Ora, como sabemos, a região nortenha tem sido, nos últimos anos, fustigada pelo encerramento de muitas empresas, com tudo o que isso significa em termos de redução de postos de trabalho e de menor capacidade de criação de riqueza. Importa, pois, compensar a perda de empresas no Norte com novos projectos de empreendedorismo, de forma a gerar investimento, estimular a procura, criar emprego e aumentar a confiança dos agentes económicos.

Título: II Seminário Ibérico - Mudança Global na Península Ibérica
Enviado por: Cabeça de Martelo em Julho 24, 2010, 11:45:35 am
Citar
O objectivo do Seminário Ibérico “Mudança ambiental global na Península Ibérica. Uma visão integrada” é congregar os investigadores portugueses e espanhóis que desenvolvem estudos sobre a mudança global. Pretende-se que este seja um fórum de análise e discussão interdisciplinar dos problemas associados à Mudança Global na Península Ibérica.

O seminário encontra-se organizado em torno de três eixos temáticos, aos quais está subjacente a dimensão temporal, que estruturam as sessões e com os quais se pretende explorar, no contexto da Península ibérica, o papel da acção humana na mudança global, as consequências ambientais dessa mudança e as respostas dos sistemas sociais:

Tema 1 - Mudança ambiental: evidências do passado

Num planeta onde os registos instrumentais apenas abrangem os últimos 150 anos, o estudo das alterações climáticas induzidas pela actividade humana implica necessariamente a reconstrução do que aconteceu num passado distante, nos oceanos, na terra, na atmosfera e nos ecossistemas. Só assim se poderá entender como o sistema climático global funciona “como um todo” e definir o seu ritmo de mudança.

Os posters e comunicações deverão apresentar uma visão integrada das condições climáticas da Península Ibérica no passado, investigando a sua relação com o clima global e os efeitos nos ecossistemas e nas sociedades humanas, abrangendo escalas de variabilidade temporal de décadas as milhares de anos.


Tema 2 - Tendências actuais de mudança: vulnerabilidade e resiliência

A dicotomia Mediterrâneo / Atlântico presente na Península Ibérica traduz-se, entre outros aspectos, na diversidade de paisagens e na forma como são utilizados os recursos naturais. Importa, no entanto, ter uma noção clara das tendências de mudança ambiental que têm ocorrido nas últimas décadas, identificando e analisando, através de abordagens sistémicas, os factores (naturais e humanos) de degradação ou conservação ambiental.

Os posters e comunicações deverão possibilitar a construção de uma visão integrada das principais tendências e dos factores de mudança e de resiliência dos sistemas ambientais ao nível das alterações climáticas, da acidificação dos oceanos, da subida do nível do mar, da degradação das zonas costeiras, de fenómenos meteorológicos extremos, da eutrofização dos ecossistemas aquáticos e terrestres, da redução da biodiversidade, da desflorestação, da desertificação, das mudanças de uso do solo, da degradação dos recursos hídricos, do esgotamento dos recursos pesqueiros, da degradação zonas húmidas, entre outras.


Tema 3 - Cenários de mudança ambiental e desafios para o futuro: mitigação, recuperação e adaptação

É hoje reconhecido que o crescimento económico é fortemente afectado pelos problemas ambientais. As ciências naturais e sociais deparam-se com o desafio de colaborar no desenvolvimento de análises integradas e interdisciplinares em temas tão cruciais como: a contribuição do funcionamento dos ecossistemas para o bem-estar e segurança humana; a sustentabilidade das cidades; o aumento da eficiência energética.

Os sistemas sociais têm de encontrar medidas de resposta para fazer face às consequências, positivas e negativas, dessa mudança. Deste modo, torna-se crucial identificar as estratégias de mitigação, recuperação ou adaptação mais adequadas a cada problema e que devem ser implementadas, pela sociedade, às escalas regional, nacional e global.

Os posters e comunicações deverão permitir a apresentação e discussão de estratégias de mitigação, recuperação ou adaptação relacionadas com os seguintes temas: A emergência de novas tecnologias ambientais e energéticas; Restauração de ecossistemas degradados; Acordos e tratados internacionais; Sequestro de carbono; Práticas de conservação dos solos; Gestão Integrada dos Recursos Hídricos; Gestão Integrada de Zonas Costeiras; Desenvolvimento de sistemas de observação e monitorização do ambiente; Controle da poluição; Classificação de áreas para conservação da natureza e biodiversidade; Gestão de resíduos; Utilização de tecnologias da informação e comunicação; Aumento da eficiência energética, entre outras.

Título: Tapeçarias de Pastrana
Enviado por: João Vaz em Setembro 07, 2010, 02:37:24 pm
Deixo aqui a minha sugestão de visita ao Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga para os últimos dias da exposição das magníficas Tapeçarias de Pastrana. O próximo sábado dia 12 será o derradeiro dia, antes destas tapeçarias históricas embarcarem para Toledo, Madrid e Nova Iorque para regressarem de novo à Colegiada de Pastrana em Guadalajara, Espanha, onde se têm conservado desde há muito.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Z1PpCeeRtnI/TFaDpbQwrLI/AAAAAAAABJM/L_sjMP5FRrM/s400/tape%C3%A7arias+de+Pastrana+princ+D+Jo%C3%A3o.jpg)

A exposição intiulada A Invenção da Glória: D. Afonso V e as Tapeçarias de Pastrana (http://http) consiste na apresentação (pela primeira vez em Portugal) do conjunto de 4 tapeçarias recentemente restauradas atribuídas à oficina de Passchier Grenier, em Tournai (Bélgica), datáveis do último quartel do século XV. Formam um testemunho iconográfico de grande raridade para a História militar do início do Renascimento português ilustrando algumas das primeiras grandes campanhas de conquista no Norte de África: a conquista de Arzila e a ocupação de Tânger em 1471.

FERNÃO DE MAGALHÃES: UM AGENTE SECRETO DE D. MANUEL I  ??


Conferência:
20 de Outubro, às 18h30 - Centro Nacional de Cultura, Rua António Maria Cardoso, 68 – 1249-101 Lisboa  – Portugal
Oradores: José Mattos e Silva e António Mattos e Silva

Fernão de Magalhães é o nome que a História destaca como sendo o primeiro navegador a promover uma viagem que acabou por efectuar a primeira circum-navegação ao nosso planeta, permitindo que este fosse integralmente conhecido, o que contribuiu para criar as condições iniciais do fenómeno actualmente designado por “globalização”.

Mas quem era efectivamente este homem? Onde terá nascido? Qual a veracidade sobre as suas relações pessoais com  D. Manuel I? Estes são mistérios que têm perdurado ao longo de quase cinco séculos mas que, de acordo com os factos e raciocínios que vamos expor, pensamos ter conseguido, finalmente, desvendar.

Nesta Conferência os oradores apresentarão, pela primeira vez em Portugal, um documento no qual o navegador indica quem são os seus pais.

A Herança do Infante

10 a 12 de Novembro de 2010
Auditório dos Paços do Concelho Século XXI
Câmara Municipal de Lagos
Entrada Livre


Em Novembro de 2010, comemoram-se os 550 anos sobre a morte do infante D. Henrique. Mais do que reescrever as páginas da sua vida, o presente colóquio pretende dar enfoque à sua herança, numa
abordagem cronológica que se inicia nos anos que precedem a sua morte e que vai até à contemporaneidade. As acções de D. Henrique tiveram um efeito irradiador que se prolongou para lá da sua vida. Para se compreender, cabalmente, os efeitos da «empresa» que
dirigiu deve atender-se às suas consequências em diversas áreas, como a náutica ou o conhecimento
geográfico. As diferentes artes, da literatura à escultura, e à própria historiografia, encarregaram-se de transformar o Infante num ícone da identidade portuguesa. O mito, tanto como o homem, apresenta-se como um riquíssimo objecto de análise.

A exposição representa o culminar de um projecto de 5 anos na elaboração da maqueta em modelação 3 D da capital antes do terramoto, desenvolvido pela Câmara Municipal de Lisboa.
 
"Com recurso à visualização da cidade em 3D, à reconstituição de 23 pontos notáveis que documentam, na 1ª metade do séc. XVIII, algumas ruas, praças, igrejas, conventos, edifícios públicos e palácios, muitos deles desaparecidos ou alterados na sequência do Terramoto de 1755, complementadas com a reconstituição virtual de percursos que estabeleciam diferentes circuitos na cidade, será agora possível conhecer melhor a Lisboa barroca.

Após a conclusão deste projecto, está prevista a publicação de monografias relativas a cada um dos pontos notáveis que, para além de uma breve contextualização e resenha histórico-artística do edifício, englobará explicação de cada uma das fases do processo de reconstituição, tanto do ponto de vista científico, como do ponto de vista gráfico".

Portugal e Inglaterra: A mais antiga aliança científica do mundo


O colóquio internacional «Portugal-Inglaterra: 250 anos de Intercâmbio Científico» irá realizar-se no dia 10 de Dezembro, entre as 10h e as 18h, na Biblioteca Joanina da Universidade de Coimbra (UC). Este encontro pretende evocar cientistas portugueses e diplomatas que foram membros da Sociedade Real de Londres, a mais antiga academia científica do mundo, actualmente em funcionamento.

“Portugal e Inglaterra são parceiros desde o tratado de Windsor, o mais antigo acordo político ainda em vigor, tendo sempre mantido fortes relações”, explica Carlos Fiolhais, director da Biblioteca Geral da UC e membro da comissão organizadora da iniciativa. Neste colóquio serão abordadas “as relações científicas luso-britânicas, estando apresentações a cargo de especialistas britânicos e portugueses”, acrescenta.

Este encontro pretende, ainda, retratar a vida e a obra dos sócios portugueses da Sociedade Real de Londres, tais como João Jacinto Magalhães, que conviveu com os maiores cientistas da época, Jacob de Castro Sarmento, um médico judeu que enviou para Coimbra o primeiro microscópio, o Padre Teodoro de Almeida, que foi o primeiro físico experimental português, o Abade Correia da Serra, um botânico e diplomata em Washington, e Marquês de Pombal, que além de diplomata em Londres, foi primeiro-ministro português e protagonista da reforma da Universidade de Coimbra, em 1772. Guilherme Elsden, um arquitecto britânico que traçou o edifício do Laboratório Chimico, actual sede do Museu de Ciência daquela estrutura, também será recordado.

A Sociedade Real de Londres vai marcar presença neste colóquio, representada por Robert Fox, que dirige uma das publicações desta instituição e historiador da Universidade de Oxford, e por Keith Moore, director da biblioteca daquela Sociedade. Para participar nesta iniciativa é necessário realizar uma inscrição, no valor de 25 euros.

Investigador italiano fala sobre os arquivos secretos do Vaticano sobre a Guerra Civil Espanhola no ISCTE

(http://www.europressresearch.eu/img/ALFONSO-BOTTI.jpg)

Em 2006, o Vaticano abriu os seus arquivos secretos aos investigadores. A documentação sobre a Guerra Civil Espanhola e o papel da Igreja Católica no conflito foi estudada por Alfonso Botti, professor de História Contemporânea na Faculdade de Letras e Filosofia da Universidade de Modena e Reggio Emilia (Itália). Os resultados desta investigação, que esclarece o envolvimento no conflito espanhol de 1936-1939 serão apresentados na próxima terça-feira, dia 30, às 11h00, no ISCTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa.

Como esclareceu ao Ciência Hoje a investigadora Guya Accornero, do Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia daquele instituto, este estudo tem bastante relevância pois ajuda a compreender “as décadas em que se instauraram os regimes autoritários na Europa”.

Mediado por António Costa Pinto, professor do Instituto Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa, o colóquio dará destaque às informações mais significativas do levantamento de documentos de vários fundos do Arquivo Secreto do Vaticano tais como o discurso de Pio XI, de 14 de Setembro 1936, aos refugiados espanhóis religiosos.

Outros momentos a focar são a carta colectiva do episcopado espanhol de Julho 1937, a atitude do episcopado espanhol face aos projectos de solução negociada do conflito, a posição face aos bombardeamentos das cidades e a preocupação sobre a influência nazi em Espanha.

A posição dos intelectuais católicos como Maritain, Mounier, Sturzo e Mendizábal serão também referidas.

O Combatente Português no Século XX

"Os Combatentes na I República"
Exposição Temporária de Fotografia


(http://timeout.sapo.pt/images_content/combatentes091110.jpg)

 "Em Janeiro de 1917, Portugal marcava presença no conflito, tendo destacado para a Flandres, um Corpo Expedicionário (C.E.P) sob o comando do General Tamagnini constituído inicialmente por uma Divisão sob o comando do General Gomes da Costa e posteriormente por Duas Divisões, com efectivos totais de 1551 oficiais e 38 034 praças (os sargentos faziam, à época, parte da classe de praças). Só em Julho o C.E.P assumiu a responsabilidade de um pequeno sector. A dureza da vida nas trincheiras e a permanência exagerada nas mesmas afectaram o moral das tropas. Em 9 de Abril de 1918, os alemães atacaram em força o sector português (data em que se estava a iniciar a rendição das tropas portuguesas). Considerando-se as circunstâncias, os militares portugueses bateram-se com bravura. Os resultados cifraram-se em cerca de 2000 mortos, 5000 feridos e 6000 prisioneiros. Portugal, durante o conflito, teve também empenhado em África (Angola e Moçambique) cerca de 50 150 homens numa guerra cuja dureza ficou marcada por cerca de 4000 mortos em Moçambique (a maioria por doença) e 1000 mortos em Angola. A cobertura fotográfica destes acontecimentos e da respectiva participação de Portugal apresentada nesta exposição, são de autoria de dois fotojornalistas ao serviço de Portugal – Arnaldo Garcez e Joshua Benoliel".

The years 2009-2011 mark the two hundred year anniversaries of the beginning of many Latin American Independence movements. It was two centuries ago that Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Venezuela declared their independence. The years 1809-1811 therefore represent an important turning point in the history of Latin America, resulting in the emergence of new nation states and constituting the first step in the process of breaking from European colonial rule. The nature of this process remains an important talking point today.

As Latin American and the world celebrate these anniversaries, important questions remain as to how individual countries and the region as a whole should address challenges in the areas of poverty, development, security, public health, and national and international politics. Furthermore, current relations between Latin America, the USA and Europe, and the role that other regions and international stakeholders can play in supporting Latin America, remain fundamental issues to be clarified.

In ensuring stable economic and societal development, Latin American countries will rely heavily on their international images. A strong national brand will encourage tourism, investment, the immigration and retention of intellectual elites, and will enable a country to play more influential role in regional and global politics. Understanding and strengthening how their nation’s brand is understand, and can be shaped, is therefore one of the most important challenges facing governments, private companies, and civil societies in the region and abroad.

To enable academic analysis of the subject, and provide a platform for discussion on related fields, the ICD will host “Nuestra America” to explore the concept of nation branding and how Latin American governments, companies, and other stakeholders can engage with it.

Certificate of Attendance
All conference participants will be awarded an official certificate of attendance upon completion of the program, which will provide details of the speakers who took part and the topics discussed. Each certificate will be signed by two members of the ICD’s Advisory Board. (The ICD Advisory Board list can be found here).

Speakers
The speakers during the program will consist of experts and stakeholders in the Latin American Region from the fields of international politics, diplomacy, academia, the private sector, and civil society, from Latin America and across the world.

Participants
The conference is open to young professionals, students and scholars, diplomatic and political representatives, journalists, and civil society practitioners with an active interest in Latin America, from across the world.

To Apply please visit: http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/cdla/i ... ation-form (http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/cdla/index.php?en_nuestra-america-application-form)

Participant Papers

The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the USA
“The Roles and Responsibilities of the US and Europe in the New World Order and Digital Revolution: Exploring the Political, Economic, and Cultural Dimensions”
(Washington, D.C., 18th-21st May 2011)
http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/europe ... foufp-2011 (http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/europeanamericanrelationship/index.php?en_conferences_foufp-2011)

The 2011 conference will focus on the theme “The Roles and Responsibilities of the US and Europe in the New Global Community”. The theme was selected in recognition of two significant developments in the field of international relations. Firstly: The development of a new global community with new players, both at the sub-state and inter-state level, and new forms of influence and power. Secondly, the emergence of new, global challenges: The developments in the Arab World,  Climate change  disasters, financial instability, terrorism, and the prevention of health pandemics, are all areas of activity that require the community to build sustainable, multilateral approaches.

In recognition of these developments, there is a demonstrable need to analyze and reflect on the activity of the US and Europe within this new context, and in addressing these new challenges. The conference will therefore begin with an assessment of the new global community: How has it been formed, how does it operate, and what changes are we likely see in the future. Following this, the focus will move to a consideration of the key challenges facing the global community today, from climate change and natural disasters to cultural differences. Finally, the program will build on these discussions to reflect on the positions of the US and Europe in this changing international environment and: What do their international partners expect of the US and Europe, and how can they forge stronger relations with countries in all regions to ensure the cooperation necessary to tackle the challenges ahead?

Symposium Participants
The Symposium is open to applications from diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, private sector figures, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars, and other interested stakeholders in international relations from across the world.

The online application form can be found under:

The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the USA 2011
“The Roles and Responsibilities of the US and Europe in a Changing World Order and Digital Revolution: Evaluating the Political, Economic, and Cultural Dimensions”
(Washington, D.C., 18th-21st May 2011)
www.icd-international-symposium-usa.org (http://www.icd-international-symposium-usa.org)

The 2011 conference will focus on the theme “The Roles and Responsibilities of the US and Europe in the New Global Community”. The theme was selected in recognition of two significant developments in the field of international relations. Firstly: The development of a new global community with new players, both at the sub-state and inter-state level, and new forms of influence and power. Secondly, the emergence of new, global challenges: The developments in the Arab World,  Climate change  disasters, financial instability, terrorism, and the prevention of health pandemics, are all areas of activity that require the community to build sustainable, multilateral approaches.

In recognition of these developments, there is a demonstrable need to analyze and reflect on the activity of the US and Europe within this new context, and in addressing these new challenges. The conference will therefore begin with an assessment of the new global community: How has it been formed, how does it operate, and what changes are we likely see in the future. Following this, the focus will move to a consideration of the key challenges facing the global community today, from climate change and natural disasters to cultural differences. Finally, the program will build on these discussions to reflect on the positions of the US and Europe in this changing international environment and: What do their international partners expect of the US and Europe, and how can they forge stronger relations with countries in all regions to ensure the cooperation necessary to tackle the challenges ahead?

Symposium Participants>>
The Symposium is open to applications from diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, private sector figures, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars, and other interested stakeholders in international relations from across the world.

Introduction
ICD Academy Sessions are weeklong programs that explore the role of cultural diplomacy in contemporary international relations. Each program features lectures, seminars and workshops lead by experts from the fields of international politics, diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the private sector. During their time in Berlin participants will also have the opportunity to take part in cultural and social activities and to visit institutions such as the German Foreign Office, the German Parliament, the Berlin City Hall, cultural institutions and Berlin-based embassies.

The ICD Academy was established to allow individuals of all academic and professional backgrounds the opportunity to learn more about the subject of cultural diplomacy. In recognition of the growing interdependence of individual nation states, and the increasing role of non-governmental organizations in international affairs, the importance of cross-cultural exchange based on dialogue, understanding, and trust is under ever more focus. Each Academy Session will therefore seek to explore the history and development of cultural diplomacy, with a particular focus on the state-sponsored cultural diplomacy of the cold war, and then to evaluate the development of the concept and its application by different actors across the world today.

The Academy Session timetables are designed to allow participants the opportunity to discuss salient issues with experts from the field, whilst providing a framework for group discussions amongst each other. Further information about the academy methodology, speakers, and locations, as well as the application form, can be accessed using the links on the left hand side.

Program Agenda
The June Session of the ICD Academy for Cultural Diplomacy will take place in Berlin from June 10th - 16th 2011 and will focus on the following theme:

"A Three Piece Puzzle: The Relationship between Culture, International Relations and Globalization"

In addition to looking in greater detail at the history and development of cultural diplomacy, the next academy session will explore the influence that culture has on domestic policies and international relations. Academics, artists, politicians, and informed commentators will reflect on the extent to which culture influences a country's Daily life, foreign policy, and the partners it will work with.

Integral to this part of the program is a focus on the concepts of "smart power" and "cultural diplomacy"; the meaning of these terms and their application in contemporary domestic and international relations.

Sustainable Network >
Academy Session participants become part of a growing international network of people from across the world with different fields of interest and levels of experience who share a commitment to intercultural exchange. Participants will be able to remain in touch with each other through the ICD Online Network.

A Forum for Young Leaders
(Berlin, Weeklong Seminar, July 27th – August 3rd, 2011)
www.icd-artasculturaldiplomacy.org (http://www.icd-artasculturaldiplomacy.org)

Art has a unique role in cultural diplomacy; whether visual arts, literature, film, music, dance or theatre they have the power to transcend political borders and cultural barriers. The arts can appeal to universal feelings, thoughts and ideas that everyone can understand, but also can be specific to certain times, places and political climates.

Art as Cultural Diplomacy: A Forum for Young Leaders (ACD) is a network of young influential individuals from across the world, who have an interest in art, music, cultural studies, international relations, political science, peace studies, diplomacy and beyond as well as those interested in exploring the potential for art to serve as a catalyst for cultural diplomacy at both local, national and international levels.

The forthcoming CDA Weeklong Seminar will be held in Berlin from July 27th – August 3rd, 2011. The weeklong seminar is an international and interdisciplinary gathering of young professionals and students from across the world who are looking to develop a career in the cultural sector. The seminar provides an opportunity for young people to expand their knowledge about current and future developments in the field, meet with current and former key cultural players, build sustainable networks with each other and experience Berlin and its rich and diverse cultural life. The program will consist of speeches, panel discussions and workshops by leading figures from the fields of performing arts, visual arts, film, literature, architecture, academia, diplomacy and policymakers. Speakers will offer a range of perspectives on current and conceptual issues in the development of cultural policy and arts administration within an international context, and the current and future potential of the arts as a diplomatic tool.

Since the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, the dignity and respect afforded to the protection of Human Rights across the Globe has faced an unprecedented amount of challenges. In our Globalised and Multicultural world rights relating to Immigration and Integration are those which are both most important in terms of International Relations, and those most at risk. It is during times like these that the International Human Rights framework is tested in a way like never before. Raising new questions such as how far should National Financial or Economic failings be allowed to influence the Universality of access to fundamental rights? The London International Human Rights Congress will discuss the challenges and opportunities which arise in the quest to protect Human Rights in the 21st Century.

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is currently accepting applications for our forth coming event, which will take place in New York City from February 21st – 24th, 2012. The event will bring together government and diplomatic officials, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars, and other interested stakeholders from across the world for a program of lectures, workshops, panel and group discussions and social and cultural activities featuring leading figures from the fields of politics, the arts, academia, media, and business.

The “Conference on The United Nations and Cultural Diplomacy” is one of a three–part series of International Conferences held by the ICD on the issue of ‘International Institutions and Global Governance: The Role of Cultural Diplomacy’. The aim of the conference this year is to reflect on the role of institutions such as the United Nations within the international system, on global governance as a whole in terms of key international issues and on how Cultural Diplomacy takes place. The program will consist of lectures, seminars, debates and panel discussions that will feature leading figures from international politics & diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the private sector.

In an age of international instability and discontent, the United Nations marked a transition towards a more ‘soft’ power-based approach to international relations. With its specific aim to foster peace and cooperation agreements, the United Nations was the first institution to focus on relations between states and international understanding. Cultural Diplomacy is becoming increasingly important within international relations and The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy reflects the desire to expand on this work.

This conference will focus on and analyze the probability of Cultural Diplomacy representing a useful tool for fostering international cooperation within an institutional framework and within the wider global government.

Master of Arts Program in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Cooperation with Dubrovnik International University
(Berlin, from March 26th, 2012)
www.icd-masterprogram.org; (http://www.icd-masterprogram.org;) Application Form>
 
 
Dear Sir/Madam,
 
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy and Dubrovnik International University (DIU) are pleased to announce the graduate Master of Arts program in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy. Offered by DIU in partnership with the ICD, the program will combine the traditional academic components of international relations with a new focus on the role of soft power and cultural diplomacy in contemporary global affairs.
 
The Degree
While the study of political science has been a cherished tradition of academia, the developments outlined above demand the identification of entirely new theories and models. An understanding of the challenges faced by the contemporary world requires an interdisciplinary approach; International Relations and Diplomacy should not be understood only as disciplines of Political Science or Political Theory, but also be interpreted from the perspective of art and culture, economics, law, and other social sciences.
 
Further information about the program curriculum is found under:
http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/academ ... iculum.pdf (http://www.culturaldiplomacy.org/academy/content/articles/maincd/MA_Cultural_Diplomacy_Curriculum.pdf)

Admissions
DIU and the ICD do not consider any one element of an application exclusively. Rather, our admissions panel considers academic achievement as well as personal qualities such as strength of character, motivation and the ability and willingness to take on new academic challenges. Additional factors, such as essays, letters of recommendation, and interviews are also a vital part of the admissions process. Our aim is to attract students from a variety of backgrounds and countries that will foster a unique and diverse learning environment.

The Arts Diplomacy Festival 2012

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy

www.icd-languageofartandmusic.org (http://www.icd-languageofartandmusic.org)

The Arts Diplomacy Festival 2012 will explore how the arts can be used to change theory into practice and express, create and improve social awareness and diplomatic relations. The arts include a variety of mediums through which emotions and culture can be expressed: music, art, literature and sports, to name only a few. The program will examine how the arts can be used within the field of cultural diplomacy to initiate intercultural dialogue and cooperation through movement, thought and active expression.

The Arts Diplomacy Festival 2012 is the brainchild of Cultural Diplomacy in Practice (CDP), a department within the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. CDP is predicated on the ICD’s philosophy that diplomacy must transcend mere discussion and include practical implementation of theory for the reason that sometimes actions speak louder than words: Cultural diplomacy must show rather than tell.

Popular art forms have a unique ability to bring people from disparate backgrounds together by underscoring shared values. The Arts Diplomacy Festival intends to demonstrate the underutilized power of art and physical expression to further the cause of cultural diplomacy.

The program will consist of lectures, seminars, debates and panel discussions featuring leading figures from international politics, diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the private sector. The Festival will also showcase the performances of artists, musicians and performers from all over the world and include a full day of practical workshops devoted to planning for future initiatives.

The Arts Diplomacy Festival 2012: Cultural Diplomacy in Practice
Cultural diplomacy relies upon thorough dialogue between disparate nations and cultures as a tool to promote a global peace and stability; however, there remains a tendency within the field to let the development of theory overshadow the practical elements necessary for implementation. The Arts Diplomacy Festival aims to explore how the arts; particularly music, fine arts and literature, sports, gastronomy, academia, religion and politics can be utilized by and delivered to governments, businesses and universities in an active practical, informative and effective way of communication and expression.

On behalf of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy, I am writing to bring to your attention the following major program hosted by us, under the Patronage of ICD YLF President the Hon. Yasar Yakis, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey and in partnership with other leading organizations.

The program will bring together governmental and diplomatic officials, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars and other interested stakeholders from across the world for a program of lectures, seminars, debates and Panel discussions, featuring leading figures and experts from the fields of international politics, academia, diplomacy, the private sector and civil society.

The Ankara Conference on Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution stands out as the ICD's effort to impact the international system at its most sensitive and efficient level: conflict resolution and peacebuilding, taking the Mediterranean as the focus of our study. Reflecting on the role of cultural diplomacy as a tool for conflict resolution, and in empowering the Mediterranean countries at a global scale, will be the main goal of this conference.

The conference will address the roots of conflicts in the region and will assess the resolution efforts from regional and global actors, putting cultural diplomacy forward as a means towards enhanced regional cooperation. Moreover, change is taking place – evidenced by the Arab Spring– creating a higher risk for conflict, or a new chance for peace. The aim of this conference is to reassess the intimate cultural ties that link the Mediterranean countries together, and consequently the potential for conflict resolution.

Conference Speakers >
 Speakers during the conference will include leading figures and experts from civil society, international politics, academia, diplomacy, and the private sector from across the world. These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.

The Power of Africa is the third Africa related conference that is being hosted in the beginning of 2012. It will focus on the possibilities and barriers that the African countries are facing in terms of economic and political bargaining power as well as the prospect of speaking with one voice on the international stage.  

The conference will in particular address the expectations and opinions that the outside world holds of African development and how this often diverges with what might be more realistic and customized solutions on the ground. One aim of the conference is thus to debate whether alternative forms of institutional rule and economic models can be deemed more effective in Africa than the established forms of Western governance.  

The conference will look at global as well as local perceptions of African leadership and development, and the bilateral trade relationships that Africa has with China and India.  Furthermore we will explore the role of the African Union as well as civil societies in enhancing interregional relations within Africa and what prospects this holds for its future international image and bargaining power.

Conference Speakers
 Speakers during the conference will include leading figures and experts from civil society, international politics, academia, diplomacy, and the private sector from across the world. These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.

 Conference Participants
The conference is open to applications from young professionals, students, scholars and academics, diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, private sector figures, journalists, and other interested stakeholders from across the world.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The 2012 Cultural Bridges in Germany Conference

“Multiculturalism, the 2012 Global Debate: Strengthening Intercultural Relations through the Arts, Sports, Politics and the Economy”

(Berlin, November 7th - 9th, 2012 - Held parallel to “23rd Anniversary to the fall of the Berlin Wall”)

www.cultural-bridges-in-germany.org (http://www.cultural-bridges-in-germany.org)

 

Contemporary Germany consists of a diverse multicultural landscape of individuals whose origins stem from every continent of the world. These multicultural individuals/communities both live and work together, and as such the question of defining the German identity becomes a major question for the German public at large. In addition, new opportunities and challenges are faced in developing and maintaining international and intercultural relations both within the framework of the EU and internationally. On a global level, the question of multiculturalism is a growing issue and will be a main world focus for the next generations.  Western countries are engaging with Multiculturalism policies on a significant basis and are continually amending and reinventing to fit the policies to an ever changing world.

 

The ICD recognizes the opportunity for Cultural Diplomacy to serve as a bridge between people of different cultures. The 2012 Cultural Bridges in Germany Conference will therefore focus on the potential for Cultural Diplomacy to further promote and strengthen multicultural relations both in Germany and worldwide. The application of these new practices of multicultural dialogue and exchange will be analyzed during the Conference and will offer a wide diversity of perspectives on the issue of cultural bridges in Germany and internationally. The Conference will consist of a series of simultaneous sessions of lectures, panel discussions, interactive roundtable discussions, seminars, group visits, excursion and cultural activities.

 

The Conference will be held parallel to the “23rd Anniversary to the fall of the Berlin Wall” and the participants will be able to participate in the official ceremony and events which will be a unique opportunity to learn more about the history and contemporary context of German unity.

 

Forum Participants >

Participation in the conference is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics & scholars, economists, journalists, artists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, young professionals and students as well as other interested individuals from across the world.

The Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights
“Human Rights Protection & International Law: The Multifaceted Dilemma of Restraining and Promoting International Interventions”

Co-hosted by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy & Ministry of Interior of Iceland
(Reykjavik, Iceland; April 10th – 13th, 2013)
http://www.reykjavikcongress.org (http://www.reykjavikcongress.org)

The international community acknowledges the increasing and persistent cases of mass atrocities and crimes against humanity occurring on a vast scale.

Understanding the complexity in bringing these crimes to an end, the Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights aims to argue and debate the notion of the responsibility to protect from a human rights perspective, taking into account the divergent dimensions in restraining or promoting international intervention.

Through the discussions and exchange of this conference, we aim to consider the current most vehement cases of human rights violations, and further comprehend the varied issues and approaches to these mass atrocities and crimes against humanity from a theoretical perspective, analyzing the complex layers and structures, and taking into account the ethical dilemma surrounding the responsibility to protect and international intervention.

The 2013 Congress will create and publish a discussion document that will be presented to the international community on how to overcome the dilemma of restraining and promoting all forms of International Interventions based on coordinated global coalition efforts between governments, NGOs, and International Institutions.

The Congress will focus in particular on the following Issues:

Humanitarian Crisis - This section of the conference will serve as an introduction to current and most pressing cases of crimes against humanity, considering the role of race and ethnicity throughout. The examples covered will include a focus on escalated mass atrocities during wartime such as in contemporary Mali, the ongoing and systematic violence in Darfur, an analysis of gender based violence as a form of genocide and finally the international focal point for crimes against humanity such as in Syria.

The UN Genocide Convention & R2P - Following the in-depth discourse on current cases of human rights crisis areas, this section of the conference will focus on the ethical dilemma of foreign interventions. The conference aims to achieve an outline of innovative solutions for how to overcome the dilemma of foreign intervention based on coordinated global coalition efforts between governments, NGOs and International Institutions.

Conference Speakers
Speakers during the Conference will include leading figures and experts from international politics, economics, academia, diplomacy, civil society, and the private sector. The speakers will also include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.

Conference Participants

MA in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy: Babes-Bolyai University (BBU) in cooperation with the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD)
(Fall Semester- Berlin, October 2nd, 2013)

Where: Germany: Berlin; Romania: Cluj-Napoca
When: Year Round
Next Program Start: Fall Semester: October 2nd 2013

Overview:
International careers increasingly require knowledge and skills that transcend the confines of traditional academic disciplines. The contemporary world is strongly characterized by parallel processes of globalization and integration. These processes pervade almost all areas of human activity, and the issues that foreign policy makers address at the highest levels increasingly affect the ordinary lives of people around the world. Nation states are no longer capable of resolving certain issues single-handedly, whether they be international terrorism, global (and often national) financial crises, or climate change. Moreover, the emergence of asymmetrical security threats and the international convergence of social, political and economic relations, have underlined the need for a renewed focus on diplomatic relations and soft power, of which cultural diplomacy is a crucial component.

Operating under a joint partnership, Babes-Bolyai University and the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy are the first institutions to offer a Master of Arts degree program that will educate students from around the world in several academic disciplines related to International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy.

The Key Objectives of the program are:
•To provide students with an in depth understanding of the theory and practice of international relations within the contemporary interdependent world placing a particular emphasis on cultural diplomacy within this framework
•To educate students about cultural diplomacy within the context of the political, economic and cultural pillars upon which sustainable international relations are based.
•To analyze soft power and hard power strategies within the international relations discourse in the recognition that each element is mutually important and compatible in what Prof. Joseph Nye has characterized as “smart power.”

Program Overview & Structure:
The Master’s program follows the structure of a 4 semesters´ program- the curriculum is divided into four different semesters. However, the curriculum has been built in such a way that students are able to condense their studies into a period of 13-15 months should they wish. This is particularly useful to students with other commitments, whether professional or otherwise. Students are offered an array of optional courses to accompany the mandatory courses, professional experience opportunities and the final thesis. The first semester in Berlin will consist of three mandatory courses and two elective courses. During the second semester, students will undertake two elective courses as well as a professional development and training program at the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, where each student will apply in practice what they learned in theory in the first semester. The third semester will take place on the campus of BBU in Cluj, Romania, and will consist of three mandatory courses and two elective courses. During the fourth semester students will undertake three workshops and produce a final thesis on a related topic of their choice.

Benefits:
•The program offers students a core curriculum of International Relations, which will prepare the student for a vast array of career opportunities across the world.
•Students will have access to an expert faculty with experience in international politics and diplomacy, and will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to work in a complex global order.

"Global Trends in Creative Economies: Education, Entrepreneurship and Tourism as Drivers of Sustainable Economic Growth"
(Berlin; March 5th - 7th, 2014 – Held Parallel to the Famous Berlin Tourism Trade Fair)
http://www.biec.de (http://www.biec.de)


The onset of the global financial crisis has prompted the emergence of creative economies as an attractive and potentially more viable alternative to classical growth strategies. The increasing importance given to the cultivation of these creative industries on a global scale relies on a novel approach to economic development, one which adopts a more dynamic and human-centered framework. The components of creative economies, such as Green Industries, new media, performing arts, heritage, design and creative services are beginning to form integral parts of the global economy, allowing for the exploration of innovative resources, which are accessible to developing and developed countries alike.

Promising to generate sustainable economic growth through the creation of jobs and the innovation of trade, creative industries can simultaneously occupy a central role in promoting and maintaining cultural diversity, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. The effects are thus two-fold, delivering both economic and socio-cultural benefits.

Creative industries are also redefining the education system and the tourism industry. This is reflected for example in the on-going shift from traditional leisure-based tourism to more dynamic forms, such as cultural, educational and ecological tourism. This diversification of the tourism sector enriches the local, regional and the international economy through its use of creative goods and services and represents an alternative to the domestic, goods-based economy.

Conference Agenda
The Berlin International Economics Congress 2014 seeks to explore and analyze the myriad of opportunities offered by the nurturing of creative industries, while integrating tools of Cultural Diplomacy into the creation and implementation of joint strategies of sustainable economic development.
The Conference will focus in particular on the following issues:
•   Creative Industries in the Context of Globalization
•   Global Trends in Creative Economies
•   Engaging Developing Countries in the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development
•   Contemporary Trends in the Tourism Sector
•   Tourism as a Tool for Sustainable Economic Growth
•   The Role of Cultural Diplomacy in Culture-based Economic Development
•   Opportunities & Challenges facing Creative Industries
Summit Locations
Based in Berlin, the conference will be hosted at a number of important political, historic, and cultural locations across the city.

Summit Participation
Participation in the conference is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics, artists, journalists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, young professionals and students as well as other interested individuals from across the world.

Certificate of Attendance - All conference participants will be awarded an official certificate of attendance upon completion of the program, which will provide details of the speakers who took part and the topics discussed. Each certificate will be signed by members of the Conference Committee.

www.icd-languageofartandmusic.org (http://www.icd-languageofartandmusic.org)


As technological developments are accompanied by enhanced access to films, cinematography is increasingly gaining importance as an invaluable medium of cultural diplomacy. With innovative regional cinematic industries making their mark on the global artistic landscape, talent from around the world is being showcased to large audiences who would normally not have access to the cultural particularities of the diverse regions of the world.

These films, by telling stories that reflect the social, cultural and political landscapes of their origin, are serving to promote diplomatic relations on the one hand and at the same time challenge stereotypes and foster intercultural understanding on a scale never before imagined. In addition to the story-telling components inherent in films, they simultaneously raise intercultural awareness through the incorporation of art and music specific to their region of origin.

These contributions to international relations will be celebrated during two high-level conferences taking place in Berlin and in Hollywood. The conferences will examine the immense transformative value that film holds as a vehicle of Cultural Diplomacy. The conferences will gather an interdisciplinary mixture of practitioners of Cultural Diplomacy from across the globe for a true celebration of art as cultural diplomacy that will run parallel in Berlin to the world renowned Berlinale International Film Festival and in Hollywood, parallel to the 86th Academy Awards.

In both events the use of music and art as integral components of Cinematic Cultural Diplomacy will be explored and analyzed as tools for enhancing cross cultural understanding and interaction.

Título: The Helsinki Conference on International Law & Women's Right

"An Interdisciplinary Analysis of the Role of International Law in Promoting Women's Rights"
(Helsinki; March 10th - 12th, 2014)
www.helsinkiconference.org (http://www.helsinkiconference.org)


The digital revolution, which has been highlighted by extensive citizen journalism, the dominance of social networks, as well as growing possibilities for people to travel and move around the world, has brought a renewed awareness and emphasis once more on the current widespread gender imbalance worldwide. It has become apparent to the global community that in both developing to industrialized countries, gender imbalance exists in many forms and creates a burden on society in economic, moral and other terms at local, national and global levels. Global governance organizations, federal governments, parliaments and NGOs from around the world are therefore working tirelessly, and in some cases collectively, to both raise awareness for this situation and to improve it by tackling gender imbalance both directly and indirectly.

International law has the unparalleled potential to support and protect women's rights as well as to equalize them to men's rights. It plays a vital role in the development and the progress of improving their future status.  However, in order to change the reality of women's rights globally, and to implement international law at all levels, the legislation of these laws at the local parliamentary level must take place in each individual country providing the framework for the application of women's rights.  Without this legal framework applied at both the global and the local level, it will be considerably more difficult to constitute and to assure the protection of women's rights globally in a sustainable approach.

Summit Agenda
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy recognizes the historic importance and potential for international law to serve as a strong catalyst for women's rights advocacy. Therefore, this event has been designed in order to be the first of an event series aiming to analyzing the role of international law in promoting human and women's rights. The conference will focus, in particular, on the following areas and issues:

•   The Potential for International Law to create a Framework for the Development and Protection of Women's Rights
•   Using International Law for Effective Implementation of Gender Equality Policies
•   The Role of Cultural Diplomacy to Promote Gender Equality
•   Raising Awareness for Gender Equality Globally using International Law

The Helsinki Conference on International Law & Women Rights will be hosted by the ICD Inter-parliamentary Alliance for Human Rights & Global Peace, which was established in 2009 with the aim of promoting local legislation that protects human rights, and support the long-term campaign for global peace and stability.

Summit Participation
Participation in the summit is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics, artists, journalists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, young professionals and students as well as other interested individuals from across the world.

Título: The Strasburg Conference on International Law & Human Rights
Enviado por: ICD Press em Janeiro 21, 2014, 09:33:08 am
“Human Rights-Based Approach as a Basis for Development, Justice and International Law"
(Strasburg; April 8th - 10th, 2014)
www.Strasbourg-conference.org (http://www.Strasbourg-conference.org)



The post WWII international framework witnessed the emergence of a set of liberal norms and values conceptualized today as the international human rights regime. Hopes for the effective functioning of such legal instruments at the international level are high; however the lack of universality in practice and the inherent difficulties of their implementation have increased the need for greater cooperation between coalitions active in this area to come together under a developed set of rules. In that sense, contemporary international law serves as a campaigning mechanism for the development and application of the process of achieving functioning universal human rights. Some of the main obstacles posed to the implementation of human rights are the economic interests and inequalities that permeate the international community. Therefore, any efforts at supporting international law must be accompanied by sustainable development through economic empowerment. In addition, issues of global justice must be incorporated in an integral way into the process in order to assure its positive progress and long term success.

The Strasburg Conference on International Law & Human Rights will gather a broad range of stakeholders to explore and analyze these issues and to formulate joint strategies for immediate and future implementation, thus framing the future path of the human rights based approach as a basis of international law, global justice, and sustainable development. The Strasburg Conference will create and publish a proposal document that will be presented to world leaders and the international community.

Conference Agenda


The Conference will feature a variety of lectures, seminars, and panel discussions, providing participants the unique opportunity to engage in stimulating debate on the present and future challenges of the human rights based approach in transnational justice and sustainable development. Participants will also be invited to contribute to the development of creative solutions and recommendations to achieve a more equitable application of international law.

The Conference will focus in particular on the following areas:

•   Human Rights & International Law
•   The Integration of Human Rights into International Legal Mechanisms
•   Institutional Dimensions of International Law & Political Obstacles to Implementation
•   Reconciling Universal Jurisdiction & Sovereignty
•   Global Justice in Safeguarding Human Rights
•   The Unequal Application of International Law
•   Reforming the International Legal System
•   International Criminal Law - Achievements & Challenges for Human Rights
•   Human Rights & Sustainable Development
•   Ensuring Equal Access to the Global Economy
•   Gender & Economic Empowerment
•   The Rule of Law as a Prerequisite for Development
•   Good Governance & Democratic Participation for Inclusive Development
•   Cultural Diplomacy as a Facilitator of Sustainable Development

Summit Participation

Participation in the conference is open to governmental & diplomatic officials, academics, artists, journalists, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives, young professionals and students as well as other interested individuals from across the world.
