Life in Zambia\, the Swiss Commodity Hub\, and Responsible Business DESCRIPTION:In the past fifteen years\, Switzerland has emerged as the largest commodity-trading hub in the world. This hub involves more than transit trade\, though\, and includes services such as logistics\, certification and warehousing. Zambia’s economy\, on the other hand\, has not only been dependent on copper export for more than a century with little manufacturing in the country but is currently highly indebted. At the workshop\, Zambian and Swiss civil society activists and researchers look at the interdependence between Swiss trade and logistics and life in Zambian mining towns\, and discuss the responsibility of Swiss-based businesses. \nThe workshop will be held in English (no translation). German and French contributions to the discussion are possible. \nDownload Flyer \n URL: LOCATION:Klosterberg 23\, Basel\, 4051\, Switzerland CATEGORIES:Workshop ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=UTC+2:20181212T181500 DTEND;TZID=UTC+2:20181212T200000 DTSTAMP:20181207T155041 CREATED:20180822T075430Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180822T075534Z SUMMARY:Lift off - Mapping Land Degradation in the Great Karoo from a Bird's-eye-view DESCRIPTION:The presentation by Juliane Krenz is part of the Namibian and Southern African Studies Research Colloquium. \n\nDownload Programme\n\n URL: LOCATION:Klosterberg 23\, Basel\, 4051\, Switzerland CATEGORIES:Presentation,Seminar ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: ORGANIZER;CN="Basler%20Afrika%20Bibliographien" END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
