  • Too Many Men - The Consequences of Asia's Male Surplus
    Oktober 25, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    University of Geneva: Uni Mail, room M R170, Boulevard du pont-d'arve 40

    foraus' Peace & Security and Gender programmes invite you to discuss 'TOO MANY MEN - The Consequences of Asia's Male Surplus'

    Asia has a male surplus unprecedented in human history: men outnumber women by 70 million in India and China. The consequences of this imbalance are far reaching and impact crime, gender roles, labour markets, real estate, and obviously everyday interactions between men, women, and in the wider society.
    Dr Clémence Jullien, lecturer and researcher in anthropology at the University of Zurich with field experience in India, will explain what demographics look like in these countries and due to what political, cultural and medical factors it came about.

    Afterwards, we'll discuss the many consequences of the phenomenon on security, society/gender, economy and development in a 'mobilé conference' setting - your opportunity to interactively explore the topic guided by foraus moderators.

    Event in collaboration with Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy

  • High-Level Conference on Women's Empowerment in the World of Work
    November 1, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 2:00 pm
    Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & THE SPA, Bahnhofpl. 11, 3001 Bern, Switzerland

    Women are still highly under-represented in the global labour market. A study by the McKinsey Global Institute suggests that narrowing the gender gap would not only be equitable in the broadest sense, but would also double women’s contribution to global GDP. But what exactly do we need to do to empower women economically worldwide? What are effective tools? And how can we implement women’s economic empowerment within Swiss corporates? 

    These are the questions we will attempt to answer during a high-level conference organized by foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), in collaboration with Global Compact Network Switzerland. We are very honored to welcome Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka (Executive Director of UN Women) and Simona Scarpaleggia (CEO Ikea Switzerland) as keynote speakers. A full list of all the speakers will follow shortly. 

    The meeting will aim to mobilise multilateral stakeholders, representatives from the private and public sectors in Switzerland, relevant civil society actors, social partners, and academia in order to explore concrete steps for enhancing women’s economic empowerment, such as through public-private partnerships and financial inclusion initiatives.

    November 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
    Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse 1, 8001 Zürich, Schweiz

    Am 6. November wählen die Amerikanischen Bürger*innen ihre Vertretung in die Parlamente. Umfragen sagen einen Sieg der Demokraten im Repräsentanten-Haus voraus. Doch solche Prognosen waren schon einmal falsch. Welche Bedeutung haben die US-Zwischenwahlen? Wie hat sich Trumps Verhalten auf die Wahl ausgewirkt? Und welche Folgen hat eine rote oder blaue Mehrheit? Am Vorabend der grossen Entscheidung diskutieren:

    Min Li Marti - Nationalrätin SP
    Louis Perron - Politikwissenschaftler und Politberater
    Nicola Forster - Präsident Forum Aussenpolitk (foraus)
    Monika Dommann - Historikerin 
    Moderation: Jean-Daniel Strub - Gemeinderat SP

    Anschliessend an der Podiumsdiskussion sind auch Ihre Fragen und Anregungen erwünscht.
    Wir freuen uns auf einen spannenden und informativen Abend.
