        Do we have to be prisoners of a stereotype? Can a country find its voice and courageously talk about its true essence? I am Pakistan is a campaign that enabled Pakistani people to speak on their own terms and with their own stories to the rest of the world. Driven by a captivating and beautiful short film, this initiative focused on Pakistani personalities in the fields of science, journalism, human rights, fashion, art, and business, who transcend tired stereotypes and misconceptions.

          http://www.debalie.nl/artikel.jsp?articleid=479075 [english spoken] Live stream recording - wednesday 26 june 2013 Op uitnodiging van burgemeester Eberhard van der Laan gaat Johannes Hahn, de Oostenrijkse Eurocommissaris voor Regionaal en Stedelijk Beleid, in De Balie met de burgemeester en bewoners van de stad in discussie over het belang en de betekenis van Europa voor Amsterdam, en andersom. Uiteenlopende thema’s zullen hierbij worden aangekaart, zoals wonen, werk, geld, en reizen. Amsterdam is zowel cultureel als economisch gezien al eeuwen een van de beeldbepalende Europese steden. Amsterdam stelt zich als internationale stad graag open voor nieuwe ontwikkelingen: een compacte en ‘slimme’ wereldstad die Europa veel te bieden heeft, maar die zich ook sterk verbindt met de rest van de wereld. Europa legt de nadruk op onderzoek, innovatie, werkgelegenheid en groene economie. Ze sluit hiermee naadloos aan bij Amsterdam en past goed bij de structuur van de Amsterdamse economie en samenleving. Maar wat betekent de Europese Unie voor ons, als Amsterdammers? 2013 is het Europees Jaar van de Burger. De Europese Unie wil haar burgers bewust maken van hun recht om zich overal in de unie te kunnen vestigen. Daarnaast wil de Europese Commissie het voor burgers nog makkelijker maken naar een ander EU-land te reizen, te winkelen, te studeren of te wonen. Met de komst van Hahn halen de Gemeente Amsterdam en De Balie ‘Europa’ letterlijk naar de burger om in gesprek te gaan. Het programma met burgemeester van der Laan en Eurocommissaris Hahn wordt gemodereerd door Yoeri Albrecht, directeur De Balie. In samenwerking met de gemeente Amsterdam. Voertaal: Engels Vragen kunnen in het Nederlands gesteld worden.

            Sri Lanka, “The Pearl of the Indian Ocean,” can be described in superlatives. One of the longest documented histories in the world. Oldest democracy in South Asia.  One of the top biodiversity hotspots in the world. First country in recorded history to have a female ruler. First modern nation with a female elected head of state. And, interestingly, the third most religious country in the world. This Asian island off the southeast coast of India is reputed to have been King Solomon’s source for ivory, peacocks, and valuables, which he imported from the ancient seaport of Tarshish. An important stop on the Silk Road, Arab traders called ancient Ceylon “Serendip”, a Sanskrit term referencing the discovery of something by accident, which formed the root of the modern “serendipity”. Today, Sri Lanka, or “venerable island”, boasts one of the fastest growing economies in the world with over 60% of the gross domestic product coming from the service sector.  However, severe income inequality and ethnic prejudice have driven large numbers of its citizens to seek work outside of the country.  As a result, these populations are exploited, abused, and at times, enslaved at the hands of unscrupulous employers. Ninety-nine percent of Sri Lankans say that religion is important in their lives, and the most recent civil war speaks to these strongly held beliefs. The war, waged over religious and ethnic divides, lasted from 1983 to 2009. And yet, despite efforts to preserve their religion and culture, significant increases in alcoholism, suicide, casual violence, and rape reveal a crisis in the belief systems to which Sri Lankans cling. Buddhism, the national religion, is protected and promoted, and while freedom of religion is guaranteed by law, violence and persecution against the 8% mostly Catholic Christian minority are not uncommon. As the number of Christians in Sri Lanka grows, we pray they continue to search for the pearl of great price – the hearts of the Sri Lankan people.

              Throughout Burma’s history, women have played a critical role in political and social movements, yet their stories are often overlooked or left out of official records. To this day, the decision-making bodies of all spheres of society, ranging from village to state levels, continue to be dominated by men, reflecting the country’s culturally conservative stance toward women. In her presentation, Tay Tay discussed women’s unique contributions to political developments in Burma and used her experiences as an activist to highlight the indispensable role played by multi-ethnic women’s groups along Burma’s borders in the country’s struggle for democracy. She identified opportunities available to women in light of the current opening in Burma, as well as obstacles hindering the advancement of women, regardless of their ethnicity or social status. She concluded with recommendations on how stakeholders can foster an enabling environment that protects and promotes women in a democratic Burma.
