    Healing the Economy: The European Silk Road - cooperation and recovery in CEE

    Healing the Economy: The European Silk Road - cooperation and recovery in CEE

    Healing the Economy: The European Silk Road - cooperation and recovery in CEE
    "We need a new narrative and (...) a big common European mission, like the European Silk Road could be one of those narratives which could bring us together."
    In 2018, a study by the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) proposed the European Silk Road as a response to China’s New Silk Road. 
    Aiming to connect Europe’s eastern and western industrial centers the European Silk Road would generate growth and employment. This important booster for the Central, Eastern and South-Eastern European Region could increase GDP on average by 3.5% and bring better and greener transport infrastructure. 
    Together with Mario Holzner - Executive Director of the wiiw and Co-author of the study - Sebastian Schäffer is discussing the cooperative perspectives and goals of the European Silk Road. 
    Artwork recommended by the guest: The Silk Road Symphony Orchestra (the musical background of The Conference of the Birds on the Silk Road Cultural Belt.)

    Democratic Emergency - Autocratic side effects of the pandemic

    Democratic Emergency - Autocratic side effects of the pandemic

    “The time during the pandemic has really been melting and has become relative. However, we should not let the rule of law and our democratic standards suffer the same fate.” 
    The Covid-19 pandemic has been a significant weakening not only of the human health, but also of democratic processes and the functioning of state institutions. State of emergencies have been misused in certain countries to make changes, the nature of which is in conflict with the upholding of the rule of law and the functioning of check and balances in a democratic environment. How is it possible to reverse these developments of cumulation of power and the creation of structural non-pluralism? 
    Focusing on the example of Hungary the episode describes how the Hungarian government used the pretext of health threat to implement its ideology-based policy of the ruling party Fidesz. 
    Daniel Martínek discusses with Zsuzsanna Végh the autocratic side effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and how to cure them. 
    Zsuzsanna Végh is Research Fellow at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder) and Associate Researcher at the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) focusing on, amongst others, Hungarian EU and foreign policy as well as on democratization and regional cooperation in Central Europe.

    Serbia and its vaccination strategy
 - the game of geopolitics and disinformation

    Serbia and its vaccination strategy
 - the game of geopolitics and disinformation

    In February 2021, Serbia was leading the “vaccination race”, with the highest vaccinations rates within Europe. The news outlets were reporting that the government had been successful in its vaccination strategy, which prioritized healthcare over politics by looking at the purchase and distribution of vaccines as a healthcare issue.    
    But half a year later the number of given jabs has stagnated - a result of many complex factors, such as historical and socio-political connotations, as well as problems in public discourse, disinformation and controversial narratives.  
    Emma Hontebeyrie - IDM's Podcast Producer - is welcoming Vuk Velebit - a political analyst focusing on relations between Serbia, Russia and the West based in Belgrade - to discuss how the Serbian vaccination process overlaps the current complex political, geopolitical and informative discourse.

    Kriegsrecht in Polen 1981

    Kriegsrecht in Polen 1981

    Vor 40 Jahren am 13. Dezember 1981 wurde in Polen das Kriegsrecht verhängt, Die Anhänger der Demokratiebewegung Solidarność wurden inhaftiert, die Armee nahm Einfluss auf die öffentlichen Medien, Bürgerrechte aufgehoben, hunderttausende Polen verließen das Land und suchten Asyl im Ausland.
    Wie ist es dazu gekommen? In dieser Folge von “IDM Exptertise” blicken wir auf auf die Zeit während des Kriegsrechts aus der Perspektive eines damals in Polen lebenden Journalisten. Malwina Talik (IDM) spricht mit Otmar Lahodynsky über den damaligen Alltag in der Volksrepublik Polen, über die Wahrnehmung der Ereignisse in Österreich und über die Rolle von Musik für die Opposition. Zum Schluss sprechen die beiden auch über das heutige Polen.
    Mehr über die Lieder von Solidarność können Sie auch aus der Sendung "Spielräume Spezial" auf Ö1 am 26. Oktober um 17:10 Uhr erfahren: https://oe1.orf.at/programm/20211026/655970/Lieder-der-Freiheit-Polen-1981 
    Die Sendung kann man 7 Tage nachhören.
    Otmar Lahodynsky war langjähriger Redakteur beim Nahrichtenmagazin "profil" sowie EU-Korrespondent und stellvertretender Chefredakteur der Tageszeitung „Die Presse“. Von 2014 bis 2021 war er auch Präsident der Vereinigung Europäischer Journalisten. Für seine Verdienste in der Berichterstattung über Polen und die Solidarnosc-Zeit erhielt er den polnischen „Kavaliersorden“ von Präsident Bronislaw Komorowski.
