Tiger on the Rise: The Economy of Indonesia

LocationHereweg 1

Tonight Gerry van Klinken, senior researcher at the University of Amsterdam and a South-Asian history expert, will provide us with a lecture on the topic of the economic state of Indonesia. How is it possible that a country goes from nothing to a lot in such a short amount of time? As of right now, Indonesia is the biggest economy in South-East Asia and is often called 'the newest BRIC-member'. How did this happen and do we, the Dutch, have something to do with it, being the old-colonizers? You will find out tonight! Afterwards, Dispuut Het Geweten will organize her Kingsday themed drinks! Make sure you're there!

The Iraq War: 11 years later

The Iraq War: 11 years later
29-04-2014 20:00
LocationHuis de Beurs

On May 1st 2003, George Bush declared the end of the Iraq war. The invasion and its ongoing aftermath have set the stage for some of the most crucial political and social developments of the early 21st century. Meanwhile, the people of Iraq continue to live between dreams of a better future and the stark realities of politics.

How may we understand the current situation in Iraq? And what actually were the reasons and interest behind the invasion? What is the role of oil and multinational corporations? What is the Dutch involvement in Iraq and what does this teach us about Holland´s position in international relations? How may we understand the concepts of imperialism and neo-imperialism in this context?

For the answers to all of these questions you will have to join us at Huis de Beurs tonight, where Ali Al-Jaberi will give a lecture. He is an IR-lecturer and has worked in both Iraq and the Middle-East as a journalist.
