The increasing Importance of Civil Society
The Changing Face of International Leadership - The increasing Importance of Civil Society
Since Donald Trump became U.S. president, it is obvious that unexpected and partly not understandable changing leaderships are part of our society and age. Additionally, to the Trump administration, Brexit or the Erdogan administration, were not predictable either. Even if all of these decisions have been made democratically, most people cannot understand how it came that far.
In order, to these changes the Civil Society has to take action and defend our democracy and human rights. According, to the Model United Nation conference in November 2017, the lecture series ‚The Changing Face of International Leadership – The increasing Importance of Civil Society‘ by BIMUN/ SINUB e.V., is directly concerned with these topics. Reasons and interrelations of global changing leaderships will be explained and explicit happenings as Trump, Erdogan or Brexit will be elucidated. Moreover, the consequences for Europe but also for developing countries will be pointed out. The aim is to provide knowledge about the connection of these changing administrations to the civil society’s actions. And to show how the civil society can encourage our democracy, economy and global development.
Christoph Bals is going to give a lecture: „Who or What is the Civil Society? Means and Instruments for a Better World in Terms of Saving Democracy and Human Rights“
