Sun, Water, Wind: Development of the Energy Transition in Germany

Author: Franz-Josef Brüggemeier; FES Berlin 2015, FES Shanghai March 2016

by FES Shanghai

The ambitious aim of the German energy transition (“Energiewende”) is to phase out fossil fuels and energy production capacities that are damaging to the climate. Despite the enormous successes of the past years as far as electricity generation is concerned and the continued international interest in Germany’s case, the energy transition has not been a smooth process as it is nothing less than the transformation of industrial society energy system. Explaining this process requires going beyond statistical facts and to also consider the economic, societal, and political context in which the relevant decisions were made. These aspects are explored by the author of the study, Franz-Josef Brüggemeier, Professor at the Department of Economic, Social and Environmental History at the Albert-Ludwig-University in Freiburg, Germany.

Social Innovation Policy for Industry 4.0

Daniel Buhr, Tübingen University; FES Berlin April 2015, FES Shanghai May 2015

by FES Shanghai

Increased networking and the use of data have a strong impact on industries and societies across the world. In Germany, the concept of Industry 4.0 (referring to the increased digitalisation of industrial production processes) is shaping the current discourse on the topic. But the consequences of this development are much wider and impact not only industries but also society and the economy. By closely examining these trends, Prof Daniel Buhr (University Tübingen) draws up several recommendations on how this development can be dealt with. His chief conclusion is that the answers to the profound upheavals ahead can only be found when Industry 4.0 is defined and grasped as more than just a technical innovation – it has to be seen as a social innovation as well.

Between Principles and Pragmatism - Perspectives on the Ukraine Crisis from Brazil, India, China and South Africa

Felix Hett and Moshe Wien; (Eds.) FES Berlin, May 2015

by itcreate

With the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, the rift between Russia on the one hand and the European Union and the United States on the other as deepened significantly. The conflict is often portrayed as epochal, with global consequences, even as a re-enactment of the Cold War that was supposed to have ended 25 years ago. To evaluate these (Western) assumption, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) asked four authors from Brazil, India, China and South Africa to explain how foreign-policy elites in their countries view the Ukraine crisis. Does it really pose a challenge to the international order? Or is it a singularly "European" problem? What are the possible consequences for cooperation within the BRICS group?
