Martin Luther King et Malcom X: le droit à la liberté et les mots pour le dire

Organisé en partenariat avec la Maison de l'histoire de l'Université de Genève

Festival Histoire et Cité

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Genève

 À la veille du cinquantenaire de la mort de Martin Luther King, cette conférence analysera la manière dont le grand leader du mouvement pour les droits civiques concevait la liberté à conquérir pour les Noirs américains en contraste avec celle de Malcom X: même si l’opposition entre eux n’était pas absolue, leurs idées politiques, leurs arguments juridiques et leur militantisme divergeaient. L’accent portera notamment sur le débat entre les «droits civiques» et les «droits humains», et sur les conséquences politiques de leurs désaccords.

Prophétisme, formation de la nation et cultures de rente en Côte d’Ivoire

Jean-Pierre Dozon, EHESS & Fondation de la Maison des sciences de l’Homme, Paris

Conférence Chaire Yves Oltramare

Auditorium A2
Maison de la paix, Genève

Les prophétismes sont apparus en Côte d’Ivoire en situation coloniale, mais aussi après l’indépendance. Certains d’entre eux sont devenus des religions ou des Eglises à part entière. Ils n’ont cessé d’être mêlés aux évolutions économiques, sociales, politiques du pays – notamment au développement des cultures de rente – et aux tensions qui les ont accompagnées. On a pu parler, à leur propos, d’une « reprise d’initiative » de la part des colonisés, ou de la capacité d’agir (agency) des subalternes.  Ils constituent une forme de production religieuse de la modernité, qui correspond assez peu au paradigme du « désenchantement du monde ».

Jean-Pierre Dozon est anthropologue, spécialiste de l’Afrique. Il est actuellement le directeur scientifique de la Fondation Maison des sciences de l'homme (FMSH), directeur de recherche émérite à l’Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD), membre de l'Institut des mondes africains (IMAF) et directeur d'études à l'École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS).

La chaire Yves Oltramare Religion et politique dans le monde contemporain a pour mission d’apporter une contribution scientifique majeure à l’analyse de l’impact des rapports entre religion et politique sur l’évolution des sociétés et du système international.

Women’s Rights and Reproductive Rights: A Complicated History

Nicole Bourbonnais, Assistant Professor of International History

Lunch Briefing

Auditorium A1B
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Almost all international organisations working in the field of population and reproduction today stress the fundamental importance of empowering women, working for gender equality, and adopting a human rights-based approach.  But this was not always the case: in fact, this woman/rights-centred paradigm is a relatively novel phenomenon when placed in the longer history of population activism.  This public briefing will explore the complex mix of feminist, eugenic, neo-Malthusian, environmentalist, and public health ideologies that shaped early- to mid-20th century “population control” and “family planning” activism, before tracing the forces from within and outside the population movement that fuelled the shift to a “reproductive rights” paradigm in the early 1990s.  Finally, it will consider how the historical legacy of population control continues to shape international politics and activism today.   

Nicole Bourbonnais, Assistant Professor of International History
A Canadian citizen, Nicole Bourbonnais is Assistant Professor of International History with a focus on gender, global population politics, reproductive rights, and transnational activism in the twentieth century. Her first book, Birth Control in the Decolonizing Caribbean: Reproductive Politics and Practice on Four Islands, 1930-1970 (Cambridge University Press, 2016) explores how family planning campaigns in Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, and Bermuda intersected with the politics of nationalism and working class women’s efforts to control their reproductive lives in the early to mid twentieth century.

The Diplomatic Kaleidoscope: A Reflection of Inclusivity

Junior Diplomat Initiative Youth Dialogue 2018

Today’s global geopolitical landscape presents a kaleidoscope of actors in an era of inclusive diplomacy. Governments, policy-makers, diplomats, businesses, and international and non-governmental organisations find themselves in an ever-changing landscape in which new, diverse actors are redefining diplomacy and addressing issues that are interwoven across nations, disciplines, and actors. Diplomacy today includes a range of diverse voices, including those of women, refugees, armed groups, scientists, children, and other citizens around the world, interacting with the diplomatic process in new, innovative, and interactive ways.

The Diplomatic Kaleidoscope: A Reflection of Inclusivity aims to create an engaging dialogue about the challenges and opportunities of the diplomatic sphere and equip aspiring diplomats with the practical knowledge and skills to create a positive impact.

Two panel discussions in the morning will be followed by an afternoon session with a choice between three practical workshops.

Panel 1 - The Power of Women in Diplomacy
Focusing on the increasing role of women in diplomatic efforts around the world, the gender evolution of diplomatic efforts and how a greater emphasis on gender can bring positive changes to diplomacy in the future.

Panel 2 - The Evolution of Diplomacy: The Case for Inclusivity
Exploring how diplomacy has evolved from a primarily state-led effort to an increasingly inclusive network of diverse actors, and on how to effectively create positive change in this new diplomatic world.

Workshops
Participants will have the option of participating in one of three workshops. Workshops include both a theoretical and a practical component that will help immerse participants in the intricacies of diplomacy and teach them the real-world skills necessary for a career in international relations.

Due to the limited number of seats, participants are required to REGISTER HERE (priority will be given to students).

The Junior Diplomat Initiative (JDI) was founded by students at the University of Economics, Prague in 2011, before expanding to the Graduate Institute in 2013 and to Sciences Po Paris in 2015. It seeks to bridge the gap between the theoretical knowledge acquired through studying international relations and the practice of diplomacy, by facilitating dialogue and connections between students and the diplomatic community.

Les marchands et le temple. La société chrétienne et le cercle vertueux de la richesse entre Moyen-Âge et Temps Modernes

Giacomo Todeschini, ancien professeur d’histoire médiévale

Chaire Yves Oltramare

Auditorium A2
Maison de la paix, Genève

Max Weber a bâti  sa construction de l’histoire de l’esprit du capitalisme à partir du calvinisme. Mais, lorsque l’on considère la réflexion économique du Moyen-Âge et des débuts de l’Âge moderne en Europe occidentale, on constate l’absence de toute « pensée économique » structurée et systématique. En revanche, on peut identifier plusieurs galaxies conceptuelles et lexicales, enracinées dans le droit et la théologie des chrétiens d’Occident, qui produisent des mots et des discours. Ce sont ceux-ci qui, aux siècles suivants, deviendront les éléments constitutifs du langage des économistes, jusqu’à la fondation formelle d’une science économique par les économistes « classiques ».

 

Todeschini.jpgGiacomo Todeschini a été professeur d’histoire médiévale à l’Université de Trieste (1979-2016). Ses études se sont concentrées sur le développement des théories, des lexiques et des langages économiques médiévaux et modernes ; ses recherches se sont aussi focalisées sur  les discours concernant l’infamie et l’exclusion des marchés entre Moyen Age et Age moderne, sur le rôle et le signifié des juifs dans ces marchés et sur la formation des stéréotypes correspondants. Giacomo Todeschini a été Visiting Professor à l’École Normale Supérieure de Paris (2001), Fellow à l’Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies (2004), membre de l’Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, 2008) et fellow du Wissenschaftskolleg (Berlin, 2017).

Killer robots in the battlefield and the alleged accountability gap for war crimes

The rapid development of military robots designed to select and attack military targets without the intervention of a human operator raises new challenges, including in the field of accountability for war crimes.

This Lunch Briefing will discuss whether and to what extent there is the risk of an accountability gap for the war crimes eventually committed by a killer robot because of an erroneous autonomous targeting decision.

Out of the ‘mouth of a shark’: a humanitarian perspective on migration and displacement

Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

In the words of British Somali poet Warsan Shire, “No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.” With tens of millions of vulnerable migrants and those forcibly displaced, a humanitarian perspective is crucial. How can we better protect and assist migrants, refugees and internally displaced? What are the main humanitarian concerns around migration and displacement, within borders and along routes? And how can we address these issues from a humanitarian perspective?

Join us as we tackle these questions in conversation with Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Ahmad Al-Rashid, a forced migration researcher from Syria, and Melanie Kolbe, Assistant Professor in International Relations and Political Science at The Graduate Institute, Geneva (as moderator).

Organised with the IWM

Auditorium Ivan Pictet B
Maison de la paix, Geneva

In his 1930 essay, Economic Possibilities for our Grandchildren, John Maynard Keynes wrote of the onset of “technological unemployment… unemployment due to our discovery of means of economising the use of labour outrunning the pace at which we can find new uses for labour.” Taking Keynes as a starting point, this lecture will consider the contemporary context of automation as well as machinery’s historical impact on employment.

LordSkidelsky.jpgRobert Skidelsky is Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at Warwick University. His three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes (1983,1992, 2000) won five prizes and his book on the financial crisis – Keynes: The Return of the Master – was published in September 2010. He was made a member of the House of Lords in 1991 (he sits on the cross-benches) and elected a fellow of the British Academy in 1994. How Much is Enough? The Love of Money and the Case for the Good Life, co-written with his son Edward, was published in July 2012. He is also the author of Britain in the 20th Century: A Success? (Vintage, 2014) and editor of The Essential Keynes (Penguin Classics, 2015). His most recent publications are as co-editor of Who Runs the Economy? (Palgrave, 2016) and Austerity Vs Stimulus (Palgrave, 2017).

Environmental History as if the Future Mattered: Writing the History and the Future of the Anthropocene

Pierre du Bois Annual Conference

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

How does Environmental History help us understand the past, expand how we explain the present, and what might it tell us about the future? Environmental history deploys the insights from the “natural archive” - climate change, volcanism, biotic shifts and human transformations of the planet for understanding events and insight into processes described in human archives. Did drought trigger the Arab Spring? Did poor harvests animate the French Revolution? From uprisings to erosion of empires, environmental changes are increasingly used as elements and amplifiers in historical explanation.

The 2018 Pierre du Bois Annual Conference brings together distinguished scholars from international history, archeology, historical ecology, anthropology, paleoclimatology, literature, geography to explore what past dynamics and the roots of present processes might tell us about the future.

The programme will be available on this page soon.

Organised by Professor Susanna Hecht and the Department of International History in partnership with the Pierre du Bois Foundation.

Le pentecôtisme et les transformations économiques post-socialistes au Mozambique

Eric Morier-Genoud, professeur d'histoire africaine

Chaire Yves Oltramare

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Genève

L’abandon du socialisme et la fin de la guerre civile, à la fin des années 1980, ont profondément transformé le Mozambique postcolonial. Le champ religieux national s’est trouvé lui-même bouleversé par le retour à la liberté de croyance, l’expansion religieuse qui s’en est ensuivie, la diversification et la compétition des institutions ecclésiales qui en ont été les conséquences. Dans ce nouveau cadre, les églises néo-pentecôtistes, souvent originaires du Brésil et d’Afrique de l’Ouest, se sont multipliées. Elles ont défini de nouveaux codes sociaux, politiques et éthiques grâce à leur usage intensif des media. Transformations économiques et religieuses sont allées de pair.

Eric Morier-Genoud.pngEric Morier-Genoud est professeur d'histoire africaine à l'Université Queen’s de Belfast en Irlande du Nord. Il écrit sur la religion et la politique en Afrique australe. Il est l'auteur, avec Caroline Jeannerat et Didier Péclard, de « Embroiled. Swiss Churches, South Africa and Apartheid » (Lit Verlag, 2011), éditeur de « Sure Road? Nationalisms in Angola, Guinea-Bissau and Mozambique » (Brill, 2012) et rédacteur, avec Michel Cahen et Domingos M. do Rosário, de « The War Within. New Perspectives on the Civil War in Mozambique, 1976-1992 » (James Currey, 2018).

Auditorium A1B
Maison de la paix, Geneva

With the adoption of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants by the UN General Assembly, states have launched an ambitious process of inter-governmental negotiations that will lead to the adoption of a global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration. The global compact represents a momentum for the international community to set out a range of principles and commitments addressing all aspects of migration from a comprehensive and coherent approach.

This Lunch briefing will discuss the challenges and opportunities of the global compact to address the multidimensional reality of migration, improve the governance of migration and strengthen the human rights of migrants and their positive contribution to sustainable development.

The end of the rule of law?

Organised in partnership with the International Commission of Jurists

Room C1, Petal 5
Maison de la paix, Geneva

In the 70th anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights we reflect on the continued role of the rule of law in promoting and protecting human rights, in a global context where pushback against rights protection is becoming increasingly more virulent. How well have the rights of the UDHR been realised, particularly in relation to gender and women’s rights, in domestic, regional and international systems? How have breaches of the UDHR been treated as international crime?  How can problems in human rights frameworks be addressed in a way that strengthens rule of law and rights?

Introduction:

  • Saman Zia-Zarifi, Secretary-General, The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), Geneva

  • Carlos Ayala, ICJ Vice-President and former Chair of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights

Women's Voices in the Media: Changing the World

Jill Abramson, Senior Lecturer, Harvard University

Organised in partnership with the Permanent Mission of the United States to the United Nations

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Women journalists are increasingly influencing world affairs, giving voice to underrepresented communities of women and playing an instrumental role in focusing global attention on issues and problems that might be otherwise overlooked. The distinguished journalist Jill Abramson will explore key female voices from war correspondent Martha Gellhorn in the 1930s through to Anita Hill and Jodi Kantor who broke the Harvey Weinstein story and launched the global #MeToo movement.

A Senior Lecturer at Harvard University, Jill Abramson spent 17 years in senior editorial positions at The New York Times, where she was the first woman to serve as Washington Bureau Chief, Managing Editor and Executive Editor. She previously worked for The Wall Street Journal and as an investigative reporter covering money and politics. She is the author of three books including Strange Justice: The Selling of Clarence Thomas, co-authored with Jane Mayer.

This lecture is the first in a new series of lectures called “Women in World Affairs” which is organized by the Institute and the Permanent Mission of the United States to the United Nations to showcase the achievements of prominent American women, from different sectors and backgrounds, in world affairs.

Faut-il être payé pour tuer ? Les fondements économiques de la violence jihadiste au Pakistan

Amelie Blom, Enseignante à SciencesPo-Paris et à l'INALCO

Chaire Yves Oltramare

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Genève

Nous ne savons à peu près rien de l'origine sociale des recrues jihadistes au Pakistan. La très grande diversité - doctrinale, géographique, sociologique et politique - des organisations rendrait toute généralisation hasardeuse. Et pourtant, les politiques publiques, le sens commun médiatique, tout comme une grande partie de la littérature savante, s'acharnent à faire de la frustration économique le moteur de l'engagement individuel, voire de l'action violente elle-même. Plutôt que de chercher des motivations inaccessibles à l'observateur, il faut considérer l'attribution de motivations aux recrues jihadistes comme un processus éminemment politique qui doit être interrogé en tant que tel.

Portrait-Blom.jpgChargée de cours en science politique au campus Europe-Asie de Sciences Po et à l'Institut national des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO), Amélie Blom est également co-rédactrice en chef de SAMAJ-South Asia Multidisciplinary Academic Journal. Ses recherches, qui portent sur différentes formes de militantisme au nom de l'islam au Pakistan, ont fait l'objet de plusieurs publications, entre autres:  « Emotions and the Micro-foundations of Religious Activism: The Bitter-sweet Experiences of 'Born-Again' Muslims in Pakistan » (The Indian Economic and Social History Review, January-March 2017) et « Les « martyrs » jihadistes veulent-ils forcément mourir? Une approche émique des mécanismes de la radicalisation autosacrificielle au Pakistan » (Revue Française de Science Politique, octobre 2011).

Duch, le maître des forges de l’enfer

Paroles de bourreau

Avec l'Université de Genève

Sous le régime Khmer rouge, Kaing Guek Eav, dit Duch, a dirigé la prison M13 pendant 4 ans, avant d'être nommé à la tête de S21, la terrifiante machine à éliminer les opposants au pouvoir en place. Quelque 12'280 Cambodgiens y trouvèrent la mort. En juillet 2010, Duch est le premier dirigeant Khmer à comparaître devant une cour de justice pénale internationale, qui le condamne à 35 ans de prison. Il fait appel du jugement. Alors que Duch attend son nouveau procès, Rithy Panh l'interroge longuement et recueille sa parole.

La projection, produite par la Faculté de droit de l'UNIGE, est suivie d’un débat avec:

  • Françoise Sironi (Université Paris 8)

De quoi le cochon est-il le nom ? Des agressions de Cologne à l’affaire Weinstein

Olivier Roy, professeur à l’Institut universitaire européen de Florence

Les rendez-vous de la chaire Yves Oltramare « Religion et politique dans le monde contemporain »

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Genève

Des agressions sexuelles de Cologne en 2016 à l’affaire Weinstein, la condamnation morale est passée du registre de la culture à celui de la nature. La coupable n’est plus la religion – en l’occurrence, l’islam – mais la masculinité. Il s’ensuit une codification normative grandissante des comportements sexuels, et autres. Or, cette normativité est débarrassée du poids de la culture, au grand dam des tenants du conservatisme traditionnel, en particulier chrétiens. Le code s’impose pour gérer la nature quand il n’y a plus de culture. Ce glissement de la culture au code est une caractéristique profonde de la mondialisation. On retrouve, dans les fondamentalismes religieux contemporains, cette obsession de la normativité des gestes de la vie quotidienne.

olivier-roy.pngSpécialiste mondialement reconnu de l'islam politique, Olivier Roy est professeur à l'Institut universitaire européen de Florence, où il dirige depuis septembre 2009 le Programme méditerranéen. Il est l'auteur, notamment, de L’Échec de l'islam politique (Le Seuil, 1992), La Sainte Ignorance (Le Seuil 2008), La laïcité face à l'islam (Fayard, 2013) et En Quête de l'Orient perdu (Le Seuil 2014).
