"Der Agrarstandort Mongolei - Potential, Nutzung, Ziele"

Der Vortrag geht aus von der Bedeutung marginaler Viehwirtschaften in der Welt von heute und will am Beispiel der Mongolei darlegen, welche Probleme heute bei der Inwertsetzung der vorhandenen „marginalen“ Produktionspotentiale bestehen. Es wird diskutiert werden, ob Maßnahmen zur Ausgestaltung einer tragfähigen „modernen“ Nomadenwirtschaft denkbar sind, welche Chancen einem Land wie der Mongolei aus der wirtschaftspolitischen Orientierung auf Primärproduktion samt exportorientierter Lebensmittelindustrie erwachsen könnten, und welche Konturen eine darauf ausgerichtete Agrarpolitik haben müsste.

Call for Papers: "Practices of Bureaucracy and State Practices. Power, Interaction, Exclusion" 3rd Vienna Ethnography Lab, June 9th- 11th 2016

The section “Ethnography” of the Department of Methods, the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, the Department of Development Studies, and the Department of Political Science (all at the University of Vienna) invite applications for:

Practices of Bureaucracy and State Practices.
Power, Interaction, Exclusion
3rd Vienna Ethnography Lab, June 9th- 11th 2016

Practices of bureaucracy are inextricably linked to state power. Within the social sciences these practices have attracted more interest since the unified concept of the state as an entity was abandoned. Since then the question of how states are actually (re)produced through bureaucratic practices have taken centre stage. Following the cultural turn, different disciplines differentiate state images from state practices and insist on the analysis of the everyday working of local bureaucracies in order to understand the state (Gupta 1995, Migdal and Schlichte 2005). Furthermore, nation-state bureaucracies often use classificatory systems of in- and exclusion that build upon the symbolism of family and the language of blood and race (Herzfeld 1992). A distinct line of inquiry in organizational sociology focuses on bureaucrat-client interactions in welfare bureaucracies and how these produce policy and exclusions (Lipsky 1984; Dubois 2005). However, clients are not only disciplined or subordinated to such measures, but can use bureaucratic technologies within state welfare institutions to make “the state” act as wished for (Street 2012). Similarly, local implementations of standards issued by the central government express state ideas that become situationally negotiated on the ground (F. and K. von Benda-Beckmann 1994, 2007). Following Norman Long (1989) such interactions can be understood as ‘interfaces’ between the life-worlds of ordinary citizens, bureaucrats, and experts. Similarly Poulantzas' idea of the state as social relation (Poulantzas 1978, Demirovic 2007), can be used as a window for an interdisciplinary dialogue between concrete empirically based sociological and ethnographic work and theoretical abstraction.

The laboratory’s goal is to provide a forum for intensive interdisciplinarydiscussions of young scholars’ ongoing or recently completed research in the field. Discussions will focus on practices of bureaucracy in their capacity of contributing to the creation of community as well as differentiation (inclusion/exclusion). Question might concern how boundaries between “the” state and other entities are dissolved, reproduced, and transformed in concrete institutional settings and social relations. Also, research might focus on the qualities of bureaucratic interactive work and the capacity to reproduce power (i.e. affective labor). Possible examples include: practices in welfare bureaucracies, border regimes, the gendered nature of the state and the reproduction of gender inequalities through practices of bureaucracy, resource management / societal relationships with nature, concepts of "fragile" or "failed states" and the monopoly on the legitimate use of violence, concepts of indigeneity and processes of indigenization of the state.

The laboratory offers a selected group of advanced PhD students and young post-doctoral scholars (max. 12 participants) the opportunity to discuss their work with two distinguished guest scholars and present their findings and ideas at an interdisciplinary forum.

ie.talks 16.03.2016: Sai Khaing Myo Tun - "Towards Democracy and Freedom of Association: the Formation of Trade Union Federations in Myanmar"

Wednesday, 16.03.2016

INVITATION


Sai Khaing Myo Tun

Visiting Professor at the Department of Development Studies, University of Vienna, financed by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA)

Further information


"Towards Democracy and Freedom of Association: the Formation of Trade Union Federations in Myanmar"

Freedom of association in Myanmar has been improved since the political reforms that took place in 2011. A labour organization law and its authoritative rule were approved in 2011 and 2012 respectively. 

However, there are still areas that need to be dealt with as federations are not strong enough yet. They still lack internal strength to become the major driving forces for democracy and development. Therefore, this lecture will discuss the difficulties faced by two federations, i.e., the Myanmar Teachers Federation and the Myanmar Trade Unions Federation from the perspective of institutionalization discussed by Samuel P. Huntington, Douglass North and Robert A. Scalapino.

MYANMAR AFTER THE HISTORIC ELECTIONS OF 2015: MAJOR TRENDS AND ISSUES SINCE NOVEMBER 2015,

RE-DISTRIBUTING POWER? RE-NEGOTIATING REFORMS?

with Gabriele Schaumberger (Burmahilfe), Christiane Voßemer, Rainer Einzenberger, Dr. Wolfram Schaffar (Institute of Development Studies, University of Vienna)


The general elections of November 2015 have been a major turning point in Myanmar´s history: The first free and fair elections after decades of military rule are a pivotal point in the country's reform process which was started in 2010 and which has brought about a massive political, economical and social change ever since. After the clear success of Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD), the balance of power in the new parliament has shifted towards civil forces. The declaration of the military party that they will respect the results of the elections and the recent self-restraint of the NLD to abstain from the winner takes it all-attitudes are promising news. After the first convention of the new parliament on 1st February, the election of a new president and the formation of a new government will be crucial stepping stones for the new distribution of power. However, Myanmar's political institutions are still very young and the process of handing over the political power from the military dominated government to a civil administration will be delicate.

The panel and workshop will bring together experts and researchers from Myanmar and Austria who will address the process from different perspectives.

Dr. Khin Zaw Win is Director of the Non-Governmental Organisation "Tampadipa Institute". He is a former political prisoner and one of the leading analysts of Myanmar politics. He has been active in numerous capacity building activities for MPs in the old parliament. In his contribution, he will focus on the role of ethnic parties and politics in the new balance of power.

Dr. Sai Khaing Myo Tun has been teaching International Relations at Yangon University and Monywa University. Currently he is working as Guest Professor at the Department of Development Studies at the University of Vienna, funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). He is also a labour activist and representative of one national labour organisation. In his contribution, he will focus on the reforms of the higher education system and on labour issues.
