The Indian film industry has made this classical dance more and more popular worldwide. In Bharatanatyam, elements like rhythm, melody, abstract and expressive dance are joined together with feelings. Every dance position and every step is mathematically calculated and exactly set. Each eye and finger position has a special meaning. Now there is the one-time opportunity to learn this millennial dance stile in Salzburg, which is one of the most perfect forms of art in India.

Women Build Peace in Colombia


Date/Venue: Tue, 27 February 2018, 10:00 am; AAI, Study room (2nd floor)

Speaker: Melissa Villegas (Representative of the Kfb – Partner organization VAMOS MUJER, Colombia)

For the past 60 years, the Katholische Frauenbewegung (The Austrian Catholic Women's Movement) has declared its solidarity with the women of the South. More than 100 projects are supported, supervised and accompanied. As part of the Familienfasttag campaign (Family Fast Day campaign), Melissa Villegas, from VAMOS MUJER Colombia, will be visiting us. After decades of civil war, peace and security in Colombia seem to be within reach. However, the wounds heal slowly and violence, especially against women and girls, is still ubiquitous. VAMOS MUJER is committed to positioning women and girls as key players in peacebuilding. In the course of this breakfast, we will have the opportunity to talk to Ms. Villegas and learn more about the work of VAMOS MUJER.

In German and Spanish

Climate Factor


Speaker: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Patrick Sakdapolrak, Population geography and demography at Universität Wien

Date / Venue: Thu, 15 March 2018, 7:00 pm; AAI, Clubraum (ground floor)

Climate change is seen in public debate as an increasingly major factor of migration. In connection with the Arab Spring, the war in Syria and the terrorist insurgency Boko Haram in Nigeria, climate change also plays an important role for migrating. But is this simple causal explanation enough to explain such a multi-faceted and multicausal phenomenon as migration? Does climate change really cause global migration or is the overemphasis on climate misleading and distracting from the actual immediate causes of conflict?
