Call for Papers – „Familienpolitik neu denken – faire Bildungschancen für alle Kinder schaffen“

Unter diesem Titel findet im November 2012 in Berlin eine Konferenz des Programms „Wirksame Bildungsinvestitionen“ statt. Gemeinsam mit Nachwuchswissenschaftlern werden innovative Ideen und Konzepte in der Familienpolitik diskutiert. Ziel ist es, die Familien-, Steuer- und Sozialpolitik so umzugestalten, dass Lasten und Leistungen von Familien stärker berücksichtigt werden und Familienleben – auch in prekären Lebenslagen – ermöglicht und gestärkt wird. Nähere Informationen finden sich in dem „Call for Papers“.

Middle East: Difficult Negotiations Ahead

In mid-September, Israelis and Palestinians resumed negotiations aimed at ending the Middle East conflict. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas both said the commencement of their direct talks at the beginning of September had gone well. To that end, prospects look good that the two sides will come to an agreement capable of promoting peace in the region.

Wanted: Progress Toward a Peaceful Neighborhood

The meeting that took place in 1995 was an ambitious one: At the invitation of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, parties to the Middle East's various conflicts sat down together to map out a peaceful future for the region and to develop a strategy for creating a trans-Mediterranean partnership. Held in an idyllic town in the foothills of the Taunus Mountains near Frankfurt, the meeting 15 years ago was the initial event in what has since become known as the Kronberg Talks.

Bound to Cooperate – Europe and the Middle East II

The Middle East is a region of crises, conflicts and wars as much as it is a region of great potential and opportunity. However, the European Union and its member states have not yet found a viable strategic approach to meet both the challenges and opportunities in their immediate neighbourhood.
