BUA Career Day for Early Career Researchers 2022

After the doctorate, countless career paths are open, but many doctoral candidates have little insight into potential professional fields. That's why we organize an annual career day for doctoral candidates, to which we invite numerous young people, most of them with doctorates, from very different professional fields. Within the framework of small discussion groups, doctoral candidates and young professionals can talk to each other: In what jobs do people with doctorates work? How did they manage to enter this field of work? To what extent was and is the doctorate helpful? What does every day work look like? This individual exchange is supplemented by selected expert lectures and information. This year, the Career Day will take place online and is organized by Berlin University Alliance (BUA) at Humboldt Graduate School.  Register here for participation for the Career Day: Register here: careerday@hu-berlin.de

In 2004, the European Parliament (EP) established a special delegation for relations with the Korean Peninsula. Since then, the delegation has maintained ties with both halves of the peninsula – the Republic of Korea in the South and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in the North. While the partnership with South Korea have been blossoming and the mutual contacts between the EP and ROK’s National Assembly have been growing, the relationship with North Korea has become strained over time. What is the role for the European parliamentary diplomacy on the Korean peninsula? How can the EP promote deepening of the partnership between Brussels and Seoul, particularly in the light of Covid-19 pandemic? What are the ways in which the delegation can contribute to improving the security situation on the peninsula and engagement with Pyongyang? Mr Lukas Mandl MEP, the chair of the EP’s delegation for relations with the Korean peninsula, will give a keynote lecture which will be followed by a discussion to answer these and other questions.
