Environment and Resource Equity

Ecology and sustainable development are central areas for securing the future of humanity.
It is to the credit of the green movement within and outside parliaments that ecology has become one of the main arenas of politics. There is hardly another subject which, within the last 30 years, has been thus transformed from the concern of a few scientists, activists into a topic of world conferences.

Loss and damage at COP22 – how do we top Paris?

Loss and damage is when climate change goes beyond what it is possible to adapt to such as typhoons or frequent droughts. The Paris Agreement made progress on those issues. COP22 in Marrakesh should now clarify the question of loss and damage finance.

Topic: Democratization & Youth

Power should be in the hands of the people – and everybody should have the same chance to participate in it. Heinrich Böll Stiftung (HBS) is committed to securing equal access for all members of society to participate in shaping politics in their country.

Foreign, Peace and Security Policies

Peace and security are a matter of central concern for the people of Afghanistan. In large parts of the country, most of all in the south and south east of Afghanistan, instability and insecurity prevail. This, of course, is a hindrance for development. Security and development therefore are closely related. Once a basic level of security will have been achieved that will allow for progress in other fields.

Call for Abstracts ll: Deadline 31st May

We want to let go of nourishing well-known historically established narratives about the relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan by deconstructing ‘regional tales’ and open new windows but re-imagining past, present and future differently. We therefore invite writers from Afghanistan and Pakistan to contribute with texts that are imaginative and reflect and develop own ideas how new forms of relationships could look like in the future. We are looking for short stories, essays, commentaries or poetry.
