Feb 23: Territoriale geschillen in de caribische regio

De rol van het internationaal recht

Veel conflicten in de wereld hebben hun oorsprong in geschillen tussen landen over land- en zeegrenzen. Ook in de Caribische regio bestonden en bestaan de nodige (zee)grensgeschillen. In deze lezing zal worden ingegaan op de juridische grondslagen voor aanspraken van landen op land- en zeegebieden en de juridische middelen om geschillen daarover te beslechten. Vervolgens zullen enkele actuele geschillen in de Caribische regio onder de loep worden genomen.

Mar 01: Actualiteiten bestuurs(proces)recht

Meer menselijke maat in het bestuursrecht?

De afgelopen jaren heeft zich in de jurisprudentie van de hoogste Nederlandse bestuursrechters een aantal opvallende wijzigingen voltrokken. Sommige komen neer op een meer indringende toetsing, vaak ook op extra aandacht voor de omstandigheden van het geval. Daarmee lijkt sprake te zijn van meer menselijke maat in het bestuursrecht.

Mar 14: Reporting & blogging for engaged citizens

March 14, 21, 28 / April 11, 18, 25

Have you ever wanted to learn how to write clear, concise and informative stories? Whether you want to blog to express your opinions, or do the kind of objective reporting you read in international media, this series of six workshops will equip you with the tools you need to both write and pitch your own stories to media, or self-publish them online. The series will begin by touching on the phenomenon of ‘fake news’ and how engaged citizens need to be critical in their news consumption. It will detail different types of stories, how to achieve objectivity, balance in reporting, as well as how to find story ideas.

Through practical exercises and assignments, participants will learn how to ask targeted questions and hone their interviewing skills, as well as the ideal formula behind how to structure a news story. The workshops will equally discuss how to incorporate diversity, context and analysis in reporting, as well as how to express opinions effectively through persuasive writing, evidence, style and structure. You’ll get the chance to write your own news story or blog and have it critiqued as your final assignment.

Refreshing good conversations

The lost of art of good conversation

Due to our social and environmental degradation, the human consciousness is becoming for coarse. Consequently, good attitude, good conduct, and good speech is waning.One particular element of our predicament is that our evolving technology intensifies the use of words and images through speed of communication. With the emphasis on speed, the mind is inclined to become more familiar with the language of negativity and develop it further. Because we take less time to think before we speak, we may project our anger around the globe via media before considering the outcome. Once we have uttered our message, karmic consequences are inevitable. The basic laws of the universe have not changed, and we will inevitably suffer as a repercussion of our negative actions.

The point is to reconnect with the sun of goodness in our hearts and use speech to awaken naturally good qualities in ourselves and others.
