Felsberger Institut e.V. participates in the 4th AEGIS conference in Uppsala, Sweden

15.-18. June 2011 Felsberger Institut e.V. e.V. participates in the 4th AEGIS conference in Uppsala, Sweden with 2 panels.

Panel 1: Eritrea - a country losing its People

The focus of this panel is the investigation of different aspects of migration and exodus from Eritrea. In order to make that possible, historical and current relationships between the political system and migration are considered.


Panel 2: The Horn of Africa at the brink of the 21st century - coping with fragmentation, isolation and marginalization in a globalizing environment

This panel puts emphasis on the entire Horn of Africa and tries to detect whether a qualification of the recent situation in the Horn as marginalization is realistic or whether it is rather one-dimensionally displayed. Political, historical, social and economic issues are considered.
