Prof Lempp über Zentralasien - Portrait einer Region im Umbruch
Wie unter einem Brennglas finden sich in Zentralasien viele Probleme und Themen der internationalen Politik nebeneinander: Bürgerkriege, Armut, geopolitische Verwerfungen und skurrile Diktatoren stehen neben erstaunlicher ökonomischer Entwicklung, neuem Reichtum, Demokratisierung und nicht zuletzt einer atemberaubenden Landschaft, die zunehmend auch von Touristen aus Europa entdeckt wird. Am Mittwoch, 15. Mai, um 18 Uhr zeichnet Prof. Dr. Jakob Lempp im VHS-Haus das Portrait einer Region im Umbruch. Damit startet das Forum Internationale Politik, eine gemeinsame Veranstaltungsreihe von Hochschule Rhein Waal, VHS Kleve und Haus Mifgash, ins Frühjahrsemester. Der Eintritt ist wie immer frei.
