ALDE Conference: Rethinking Development Cooperation

Although various studies are available on how European development cooperation influences the economic growth in African countries, these studies often yield to contradictory results. There is no conclusive evidence that economic growth is strengthened in any sustaible way through these assistance programs. The debate on development cooperation boils down to the question on whether Europe has to increase its aid money in order for stability and prosperity to emmerge in African states and if yes, how much would be needed.

Workshop: Enclosure & Resistance

Cities, prisons and borders can all enclose us, limiting our freedom to move or express ourselves. But all forms of enclosure breed resistance too; great, conspicuous acts and creative, everyday acts of resistance. Based on the situation in Turkey, and as part of the film series #DIREN//BERXWE BIDE//RESIST, this workshop will unite performers, experts, activists and the public through the transformation of space and the replication of experience.
