Invited guest speakers will discuss these issues both from an Asian and from a European perspective. Major issues discussed will be violence against women in India, uncivil urban spaces in South China, and European foreign policy. The course is a combination of lectures by the invited speakers from different disciplinary backgrounds, and workshops in which course participants will be actively involved.

To obtain credits for this course, participants are required to

1) be prepared for active participation, notably in the workshops, by preparing the texts communicated by the invited speakers.

2) a) prepare their own brief (5 min) presentation of selected issues of the papers handed out for the workshop. This could be an intervention highlighting the major points made by the authors of the pa­per, the presentation of some complementary or alternative perspectives on the issue, or a critical assessment of the paper. Up to three participants per workshop can sign up for these interventions. They should coordinate the focus of their presentations prior to the workshop.

Brief handouts or slides should structure the interventions.

The intention is that these brief presentations should help opening up the general discussion.


b) Take up the role of the moderator for one of the workshops. Moderation includes the discussion with the speaker prior to the workshop to inform him about the structure and objectives of the work­shop, communicate to him the roles of the different paper commenters etc. The moderator also en­sures that the papers to be discussed are communicated on time to all participants.
