Why We Worry? A Brief Overview of #Anxiety.

Human nature often seeks to find the black cloud in a blue sky. It starts with a worried thought, which then generates a few more concerning thoughts.

The word “hólos” derived from Greek and means whole; compound. Holism is the tendency to synthesize, i.e., combining elements into one.

Irina Bokova, one of the world´s most influential women by Forbes and former Director-general of UNESCO, to give speech at MIUC on May 7, 2018

Irina Bokova, director-general of #UNESCO from November 2009 to November 2017, and former candidate to the UN presidency in the last elections, will be our honoured speaker on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 17:00 at MIUC, on the following topic “The Soft Power of UNESCO in a #Globalised #World”.

She is the first woman and the first Eastern European to lead UNESCO. She is currently serving as Co-Vice chair of the Broadband Commission and Chair of the UN High-Level Committee on #Management. As Director-General of UNESCO, Irina was actively engaged in international efforts to advance quality education, gender equality, protection of the world’s cultural heritage as a humanitarian imperative, and security issues to strengthen the foundations for lasting peace. Human rights were significantly strengthened during her tenure as director-general. She successfully promoted culture, science, diplomacy, and cooperation as drivers for development. As a global advocate for the safety of journalists and freedom of expression, she spearheaded campaigns to counter through education youth radicalization and prevent violent extremism, hate speech, and discrimination.

One of her most famous quotes shows her dedication to and concern for education and global problems. She has been fighting to guarantee a future for children all around the world.

Irina began her career in 1977 at the United Nations and later was appointed to oversee political and legal affairs at the Permanent Mission of Bulgaria to the UN. She also served as ambassador of Bulgaria to France, Monaco, and UNESCO. Irina graduated from the #Moscow State Institute of #International #Relations, known worldwide as #MGIMO, and #MIIUC´s academic partner, having studied at Harvard University, the John F. Kennedy School of Government and at the University of Maryland, where she was also engaged as a professor.

Irina Bokova has received state distinctions from around the world, and is Doctor honoris causa of some of the most respectful universities. She was on Forbes’s 2016 list of the world’s most influential women.

Irina has written several books, including “UNESCO, the World of Islam and the Rapprochement of Cultures: A Lecture Given in the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford on 4 June 2010”, “Art for Peace” and “Destruction and Rebirth”.

We would like to see our students involved in this important event with this honoured guest-speaker, who will leave her impressive imprint on our #University´s history. Taking into consideration the importance of her visit to the local community, our University will invite key figures of local politics and business to probably the most significant network event this spring in #Marbella and Costa del Sol.

An intense three-day module on international contract law in LLM programme at Centro de Estudios Garrigues

Dr. Beata Froehlich, LLM (UCL), delivered an intensive three-day module in LLM programme on #international contract law at Centro de Estudios Garrigues in Madrid, highlighting the fact that the structure of international contract #law has been deeply shaken as a result of changes to economic reality fueled by globalization.

The global market requires lawyers able to understand the similarities and differences of distinct legal systems and to think out of the box of established concepts. The internationalization of contracts is an issue that can no longer be ignored.

During the module with the lawyers from Garrigues, one of the largest #business law #firms worldwide, the desirability of the new approaches assumed by transnational contract law was debated via resolution of case studies.

Brilliant LLM candidates from various Garrigues law firm offices made classes thought provoking and inspiring. Each class has been characterised by active #students debate, opening up a world of diverse views and opinions from #lawyers across the globe.

Protests in Tunisia

Protests have erupted in the North #African country of #Tunisia, a popular sun and sand tourist destination that once hosted the Carthaginian, #Roman and Ottoman Empires. The protests were called by the opposition Popular Front Party but they have descended into nighttime rioting that pose a short-term threat to general order.

Various dynamics are fueling anger and anxieties. 2017 witnessed the appointment of Ben Ali-era ministers in the current coalition government and an amnesty for such officials sparked limited protests in September 2017. The government took a $2.9 billion IMF loan in 2016 which has led to harsh austerity measures: a 7.5% increase in company taxes, a 2.85% hike in gas prices. Inflation rose to 6.3% in late 2017, affecting everyone in the country other than tourists with stronger currencies.

The evident comparison can be made with the 2011 #Arab #Spring #protests though these drew thousands of individuals and peaked with mass mobilization in the capital, Tunis. Winter protests are a regular cyclical feature in the region owing to the squeeze on unemployed and poor families. In January 2016, protests erupted in Kasserine, for instance. In May 2017, protesters sought to storm a petrol facility in Tataouine, asking for wealth redistribution. There is evident correlation between regions with high youth unemployment and current protests: both manifested themselves in the county’s south and in the regions west, east and south-east of Tunis.

Several Tunisian commentators have noted that socio-economic indignation has given way to enraged and feverish rioting. Some signs point to the current wave of protests being graver than previous post-Arab Spring uproar; this includes the reported firebombing of a Jewish school in the touristic island of Djerba to the south-east and the death of a 50-year-old protester in Terbourba allegedly as a result of being run over by police. However, the Djerba synagogue’s leaders remarked that the Molotov cocktails sent at them had barely breached their complex and they were reported to be part of a broader attack on official institutions in the island.

Calm will return in the medium term. Rioting embarrasses the opposition; tourism is increasing drastically thanks to greater numbers of Algerian visitors and the government, despite casting protests as criminals, is likely to make some concessions as indicated by the Islamist party in the coalition government, Ennahda. Protest numbers in the hundreds not thousands unlike 2011 Arab Spring.

In the background to these cyclical protests is an ever-present, thought under-reported, terrorist threat. Earlier in January, four men were arrested on suspicion of organizing financial flows with #Moroccan #terrorist cells. In December, the United #Arab Emirates banned Tunisian women from travelling to their country, causing an uproar. This ban was nevertheless based on specific anti-terror information. #Military operations fought militants near Kasserine in country’s western border with #Algeria in #November. The Algerian border was also the site of security forces’ raid on a terror cell in May 2017. In July, two German tourists were stabbed in an arts and crafts market in Nabeul. In March 2017, a Tunisian guard was shot dead by militants at a checkpoint near the southern town of Kebili. Protests erupted again in April in Tataouine, the famed Star Wars town, and in May 2017 when the army was deployed in #Gafsa; both towns are in the south.

An important point to bear in mind is that the current breakdown in general order, the specific attacks by protesters on security offices as happened in Thala near the Algerian border, and the consumption of security officer time in reacting to the protests are providing a vacuum for cross-border terrorist activity and planning. 2100 troops have now been deployed in cities across the country. The longer disorder reigns in parts of the country, the greater the opportunities exist for weapons and materiel smuggling that provides the basis for “lone-wolf” and symbolic #attacks on #tourists.
