BW-BURUNDI PARTNERSHIP

In conversation with Gundula Büker

En français ci-dessous.

In an interview with Gundula Büker, we talked about the first delegation trip to Burundi since 2014. As a representative of civil society in the areas of education and youth, she accompanied the delegation of State Secretary Rudi Hoogvliet.

SEZ: What role did you play in the delegation trip to Burundi in June 2023?

Gundula Büker: I am a board member of the Baden-Württemberg development policy umbrella organization (DEAB e.V.), represents the DEAB member organizations Steering for development cooperation (REZ) and work as a one-world specialist promoter for global learning at EPiZ Reutlingen. So I was part of the delegation trip as a civil society representative with the focus on education and youth.

SEZ: What inspiration do you take home from Burundi?

Gundula Büker: Burundi is an impressive, beautiful country with an incredible number of committed initiatives and people. The country has a difficult past, which still has a diverse impact on people's lives today. I was impressed by the resilience, motivation and energy with which people develop visions and ideas and work to ensure that the predominantly young Burundians have a good, peaceful future. I will take this commitment home with me as an example.

But I also noticed that in many places the German image of the partner country Burundi focuses more on flaws and problems and contradicts the image of how Burundians see their country and that they want to paint. The fact that our perspective is still so dominant shows how the partnership is shaped by colonial continuities. As participants on the trip to Baden-Württemberg, we have to take this with us and make ourselves aware of it so that the partnership enables real dialogue and successful cooperation.

The fact that an SEZ liaison office was opened in Bujumbura during the delegation trip is a huge opportunity to find good ways to support the local commitment in solidarity and to maintain good relationships and a cooperative dialogue with actors in Burundi. Especially in the areas of education and youth, I think that successful cooperation can only succeed if the SEZ colleagues continue to pursue their good work and expand and strengthen it with the new office. Because youth and education are extremely important areas in which the partnership is designed and developed.

What I definitely take with me from the trip is motivation to continue to work on educational work for all people here in Baden-Württemberg. So that we can paint a differentiated picture of our partner country and see the challenges and opportunities and use the partnership as an opportunity to find out differences and similarities, to really get to know each other and to consider how we as partners define global responsibility and our roles in it.

SEZ: Which moment of the delegation trip did you like the most?

Gundula Büker: I gained so many experiences and impressions on this short trip that were so impressive and valuable! I was particularly touched by the intercultural workshop with young Burundian artists at the beginning. They presented a performance they had created about Burundi with text, music and dance, which we then reflected on together. This led to an open exchange in which we talked primarily about the history and present of Burundi, Germany's role in it and our relationship to it. And of course I was very happy to meet Burundian initiatives and committed people. For example, at the stakeholders’ meeting in Bujumbura organized by the SEZ. During the workshop phase, I was able to exchange ideas with potential cooperation partners who are active in the field of education and in work for and with young people. Those were moments when I... the experience of real encounter and experienced a very enriching dialogue that gave me the feeling of getting to know the country and its people a little better and understanding which topics we could and should continue to work on together.

SEZ: What do you hope for the partnership between Burundi and Baden-Württemberg?

Gundula Büker: I hope that we succeed, this partnership becomes a real learning partnership to let become. For me, this means that we learn from each other by enabling a dialogue between Baden-Württembergers and Burundians and thus achieve a reflective, power-critical and discrimination-sensitive partnership. The concept of the much-vaunted “eye level” doesn’t apply to me. Rather, it should be about practicing and maintaining a conscious approach to the different conditions in both countries and looking together at what responsibility this implies for the other partner. In order for these encounters to take place, on the German side there are: Ministry of State especially the SEZ with its employees in Burundi and Baden-Württemberg, the Council for Development Cooperation (REZ), which advises the state government on the Burundi partnership and the Burundian diaspora of central importance in Baden-Württemberg.

I would also like the knowledge about the partnership and common topics to be more integrated into the educational landscapes and youth work of both regions. In Baden-Württemberg, the partnership should be included in the education plan and curricula and school partnerships and youth encounters as well as joint educational and exchange activities should be promoted - ideally, of course, for target groups beyond the areas of school and youth!

I am full of hope that with good ideas, sensitive actions and open ears and hearts, this partnership will continue to have good soil on which a lot of good things can grow!

En discussion with Gundula Büker

Dans un entretien avec Gundula Büker, nous avons parlé du premier voyage d'une délégation au Burundi published in 2014. En tant que représentante de la société civile pour les themes de l'éducation et de la youth, elle accompagné la délégation du secrétaire d 'Etat Rudi Hoogvliet.

SEZ: What role will you present during the delegation trip to Burundi in June 2023?

Gundula Büker: I am a member of the administration council of the association Baden-Württemberg Development Policy Association, DEAB e.V., I represent the organization members of DEAB from the Conseil pour la coopération au développement (Council for Development Cooperation - REZ) and I work in tant que Promotrice spécialisée for l'aprentissage global à l'EPiZ de Reutlingen. Lors de ce voyage, j'ai ainsi participé en tant que représentante de la société civile au voyage de la délégation pour les domaines de l'éducation et de la youth.

SEZ: Quelles sont les impulses que vous ramenez du Burundi?

Gundula Büker: The Burundi is a country that is impressive, magnifique, and has a beaucoup de gens engagés. Le pays porte les traces de son lourd passé, qui se répercute de variouss manières sur la current situation. J'ai été impressionnée par la résilience, la motivation et l'énergie avec lesquelles les gens développent des visions et des idées et travaillent pour que les Burundais, jeunes pour la plupart, se construct un avenir bon et pacifique.

J'ai également constaté that les continuités coloniales sont present en de nombreux endroits. The action of the conscience and the traitors, even though they are in Bade-Wurtemberg, means that the partenariat permette a véritable dialogue and a coopération réussie.

Afin de trouver de bons moyens de soutenir solidairement l'engagement sur place et de renforcer les bonnes relations et le dialogue partenarial avec les actors au Burundi, the new bureau de liaison de la SEZ à Bujumbura, ouvert pendant le voyage de la délégation, est d'une importance centrale. Because of the domains of education and youth, the coopérations fructueuses need to be reused by the collègues of the SEZ for good work and training, encouragés par le new bureau, peuvent l'étendre et le renforcer afin de bien organizer and accompagner le partenariat.

Ce que je retiens également de ce voyage, c'est le renforcement de mon engagement en faveur d'un travail de formation pour tous les habitants du Bade-Wurtemberg, qui permette de thunder une image différenciée de notre pays partenaire et de saisir l' occasion d'explorer les défis et les possibilités, les différences et les points communs des deux pays partenaires, d'aprendre à se connaître mutuellement et de poser des questions sur la responsabilité global et notre rôle dans ce contexte.

SEZ: What is the moment you travel from the delegation that you have plus apprécié?

Gundula Büker: J'ai vécu tellement d'expériences et d'impressions lors des nombreuses activités de ce court voyage, qui étaient toutes très impressionnantes et précieuses en soi. It is particulairement touchée in an intercultural studio with young Burundian artists at the début du voyage, au cours duquel ils ont présenté un spectacle qu'ils avaient élaboré avec du texte, de la musique et de la danse et ont ensuite réfléchi avec nous . Il en a résulté un espace ouvert, dans lequel il a surtout été question de l'histoire et du présent du Burundi, du rôle de l'Allemagne dans ce contexte et de notre rapport à celui-ci. En plus, j'ai été très heureuse de rencontrer des actors burundais, notamment lors de la réunion des actors organisée par la SEZ à Bujumbura. Lors d'une phase d'atelier, j'ai pu échanger avec des personnes qui s'engagent dans le domaine de l'education et dans le travail pour et avec les youngen. Ce sont des moments où j'ai eu le sentiment d'une vraie rencontre et d'un dialogue très enrichissant, qui m'a donné le sentiment de connaître un peu mieux le pays et ses habitants et de comprendre les thèmes sur lesquels nous pourrions and developers continuer à working ensemble.

SEZ: What are you saying about the partnership between Burundi and Bade-Wurtemberg?

Gundula Büker: Je souhaite que nous réussissions à faire de ce partenariat un véritable partenariat d’aprentissage. Pour moi, cela signifie rendre possible un dialogue entre les actors qui favorise une conception réfléchie, critique du pouvoir et sensitive aux discriminations du partenariat. The notion of excellence “at the height of the eyes” is so obvious, it is not pertinent to the eyes. Il devrait plutôt s'agir de pratiquer et d'entrittir une relation consciente avec les différentes des deux pays et de voir ensemble ce que cela signifie pour les responsabilités respectives des participants. You are in Germany, out of the ministère d'État, it is part of the SEZ and its collaborators in the different regions, the Council for the coopération au développementt (REZ) and the Burundian diaspora in Bade-Wurtemberg quiuent un rôle central dans l' organization de ces processus.

En plus, je souhaite que le partenariat et les thèmes qui y sont liés sums davantage partie des paysages éducatifs et des activités de jeunesse des deux régions. In Bade-Wurtemberg, this is a fair example of the initiative in the plan of formation and programs, the promotion of partenariats scolaires et des rencontres de younges ainsi que des activités communes de formation et d'échange – même pour des groupes cibles dépassant les domaines de l'école et de la youth!

Je suis pleine d'espoir qu'avec de good idées, une action sensitive et des oreilles et des cœurs ouverts, ce partenariat continuera à trouver un bon terrain sur lequel beaucoup de bonnes choses pourront pousser!

SEZ BENEFIT CONCERT – WE’RE STILL COLLECTING DONATIONS!

Tamara Bueno de la Torre shone as a soloist (Photo: SEZ).

Almost two hundred friends, donors and partners came to the SEZ benefit concert in the White Hall of the new castle on May 11th.

Under the virtuoso direction of the conductor Radoslaw Szulc gave us that Camerata Europeana in the most beautiful and special hall in Stuttgart an incomparable evening, which was under the banner of the BW-Burundi partnership.

The benefit concert began with Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber, which raised funds for and at the same time celebrated the BW-Burundi Partnership's project “Strengthening the economic skills of housewives and young mothers in Gitega, Ngozi, Rutana and Cibitoke”.

The soprano Tamara Bueno de la Torre was heard as a soloist. This was followed by Antonín Dvořák’s Notturno in E major and “Song my mother taught me”. After the break, Antonín Dvořák's Notturno in E major was on the program. For many years, the SEZ has been inviting people to its traditional benefit concert in autumn. Unfortunately, the concert could not take place in the past three years due to the corona pandemic, so we were particularly pleased to finally be able to revive the SEZ benefit concert. For this long-awaited gathering with excellent music in a unique location, we have now chosen the beautiful spring - a time of awakening, hope and joy that we were able to meet again and celebrate together. The proceeds from this year's concert evening will be used to support the project “Strengthening the economic skills of housewives and young mothers in Gitega, Ngozi, Rutana and Cibitoke” in the Baden-Württemberg partner country Burundi. The project is supported by the Association des Femmes Musulmanes du Burundi (AFEMUBU). Minister Peter Hauk took over the patronage of this year's SEZ benefit concert. We are still collecting donations for the charity project! The proceeds from donations benefit the project directly and without deducting administrative costs.

COMMITTED IN BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG GLOBAL COMMUNITY WORLD: CITIZENS ASKED!

ENGAGEMENT IN COMMUNITIES AND DIGITALIZATION

Together for more global responsibility: Participants of the regional development policy conference (Photo: SIMAMA STEHAuf e.V.).

100 VOICES FOR GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY: AT THE REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY CONFERENCE IN KARLSRUHE, COMMITTED FROM BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG MEET REPRESENTATIVES OF THE CITY OF KARLSRUHE, THE MUNICIPALITY AND THE STATE POLICY AND PUT THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT GLOBAL JUSTICE ON THE POLITICAL AGENDA.

Around 13 people came together in the Karlsruhe Tollhaus on June 2023, 100 under the motto “Global responsibility concerns us all!” There they discussed with Karlsruhe's mayor Frank Mentrup as well as state secretary Rudi Hoogvliet, representatives of the state government and the state parliament at the development policy regional conference about how digitalization can contribute to reducing global inequalities and what civil society needs in its commitment to greater global sustainability.

In workshops, participants had demands from the areas of sustainable agriculture and nutrition, climate justice, migration and young engagement, education for sustainable development and global learning, drones and peace, inner development goals, fair trade, international partnerships with the Global South and social issues entrepreneurship developed. For example, the “Women of Impact” workshop was about feminist development policy and equal access to resources such as education and work for all people. The workshop “Climate Justice, Migration and Young Engagement” dealt with the central topics and target groups for questions of global justice. After the input lecture by Prof. Dr. Sama Mbang (TecFactory of Mercedes-Benz Cars Operations, Daimler) discussed the topic of “Digitalization and global inequalities: a global challenge for the common future”, Courtney Okolo (SIMAMA STEHAuf e.V.), Geraldine de Bastion (connective) and Prof. Dr. Robert Lepenies (Karlshochschule) on the podium about the potential of digitalization to reduce global inequalities.

Praise for civil society – Mayor Mentrup and State Secretary Hoogvliet pay tribute to their tireless commitment to Agenda 2030

Numerous committed civil society actors have been working for a more sustainable world for many decades. Mayor Mentrup acknowledged the contribution of those involved: “The realization of the 2030 Agenda with its 17 goals for sustainable development will largely depend on the performance and willingness to innovate of cities worldwide and their citizens. The many civil society associations, initiatives and groups in the municipalities play a special role here. I welcome the development policy regional conference as a platform for the exchange of expertise and experiences between organized civil society, the administration and the citizens of the region.”

Rudi Hoogvliet, State Secretary for Media and Development Policy, who represents Baden-Württemberg as the state's representative in Berlin, emphasized: "The development policy regional conference in Karlsruhe shows once again what great development policy commitment we have at the local level in our country" and continued “In view of many different crises and major debates about the problems in our globally networked world, meetings like today's are a strong counterpoint.”

Invitation from the country's experts for more global justice

The development policy regional conference was held in 2023 by the Karlsruhe association SIMAMA - STEHAuf, which is part of the One World Promoters program with regional promoter Sylvia Holzhäuer-Ruprecht. The One World Promoters are contact persons for all people in Baden-Württemberg who are looking for solutions to questions about more global justice. Be it in the areas of supply chains and fair trade relations, or questions about how more global sustainability can be brought to schools or what colonial history actually has to do with our lives today. The sponsor of the One World Promoters program is the umbrella association for development policy Baden-Württemberg e.V. (DEAB). The One World Promoters program emerged from the state's development policy guidelines, which formulate how global responsibility is politically anchored in Baden-Württemberg. The program is financed by the federal and state governments. The promoters have been contributing every day for ten years to implementing these guidelines and winning over both the political levels and citizens. Their excellent networking and specialist knowledge are an important resource for development policy actors in Baden-Württemberg. The regional promoters promote One World work, support those who are committed and win new actors in their respective region.

OPEN LETTER ON POLICE OPERATION IN MANNHEIM

Together with the umbrella organization for development policy Baden-Württemberg e.V., we, the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation, take a position in an open letter to Interior Minister Strobl on a violent police operation that took place in Mannheim at the end of April and climate activists affected West Africa. We are shocked by the events and express our full solidarity with the young adults and the Black Academy. From our many years of work, we know that such events are unfortunately not isolated cases and that racism must always be viewed in a context of society as a whole. The current case highlights structural problems that can only be addressed through decisive political action. That is why we are making concrete demands to politicians in our open letter.

The open letter is available for download here:

Would you like to stand with us behind the demands and show your support? If you would like to support the demands of the letter, please send a short email by June 16, 2023 info@deab.de. The entire list of supporting organizations will then appear here: https://www.deab.de/aktuell/de…

PROF. DR. ARAM ZIAI ON COLONIAL PATTERNS

WHAT COLONIAL PATTERNS EXIST IN DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION AND HOW CAN THESE BE DECOLONIZED?

brought answers to these highly topical questions Prof. Dr. Aram Ziai on September 23, 2022 in his presentation at the digital nationwide networking meeting of the partnership groups. He gave suggestions and impulses on how decolonization processes can be approached and advanced in partnership work.

Around 50 interested people listened to Ziai's remarks on historical power inequalities that continue to this day. Ziai traced how the problematic and normatively charged term “development” emerged from the context of colonialism and which power asymmetries persist in development policy contexts to this day. After the input, a lively discussion developed about how theory and practice can come together here and how important the critical perspective on one's own structures should also be for the development cooperation sector. The lecture contained many valuable impulses for the partnership groups to reflect on their own partnership work.

You can find the video on our Youtube channel. Prof. Dr. Aram Ziai is head of the Department of Development Policy and Postcolonial Studies at the University of Kassel, where he teaches and researches.

Am Saturday June 17, 2023 the next one finds technical input on international partnership work takes place. In an online workshop with Mariette Nicole Afi Amoussou Let's get closer to the topic that is currently being discussed a lot “German colonial history and colonial traces” and offer space for personal reflection and the expansion of knowledge and scope for action.
