Position paper on the violent protests in Chemnitz.

After the fatal death of a 35 years old man in the night of August 25th in Chemnitz, far-right demonstrations have unsettled the eastern German town on Monday August 27th, with approximately 6,000 upset and partly violent protesters. This is was due to the arrest of two Syrian and Iraqi men, who are accused to have stabbed the man. Hundreds of identifiable neo-Nazis  but also several thousand ordinary citizen of the region seemingly joined forces in order to oppose the current political system and the measures chancellor Merkel took to solve the so called migration crisis in 2015 while also mourning the loss of one of their fellow citizens.


Review: Discrimination0

Remember Discrimination0? One of the most amazing projects of AEGEE-Dresden that ended last November?

The AEGEEan just released an article titled Discrimination0: a Successful Cooperation between AEGEE-Dresden, AEGEE-Lviv and AEGEE-Moskva about it. Find out some more interesting detail about our exchange in it!

Once again we want to thank foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ), the Federal Foreign Office and the Robert Bosch Stiftung for making this project possible!


Do it again, again, again: Develop Yourself!

For the fourth time already AEGEE-Dresden has organized “Develop Yourself”, an international self-development training course for young Europeans. When all participants met for the first time, we were not sure what to expect from the following four days and how they are going to change or influence us.

European Voluntary Service: We got accredited by the European Commission

We are happy to announce that AEGEE-Dresden e.V. has been accredited as European Voluntary Service (EVS) host and EVS sending organization by the European Commission a few days ago. By this we successfully joined a group of only 5.000 other accredited organizations all over Europe.

EVS has had a major impact on the lives of many thousands of young people over the past 20 years. More than 100.000 young people between 17 and 30 took part in this EU programme, developing skills and competences by contributing to the work of an organisation. EVS is funded by the Erasmus+-Programme of the European Union.

Our accreditation lasts till the end of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme in 2020 and empowers us to e.g. host EVS volunteers. During their stay in Dresden of up to twelve months the volunteers can learn lots of skills and improve themselves while working on AEGEE.

The online magazine AEGEE Golden Times published an interview with Jan Philipp Rauprich, former president of AEGEE-Dresden, about the reasons for applying, the long application process to become EVS-accredited, and the plans and ideas we have for the first volunteer.

Die TU Dresden arbeitet zur Zeit mit rund 150 Hochschulen aus über 60 Staaten zusammen und kooperiert mit vielen internationalen Partneruniversitäten. Diese stehen den Studenten für Auslandsaufenthalte zur Verfügung. Oft werden die zahlreichen Vorteile betont, […diesen…] stehen jedoch auch einige Ängste gegenüber. Die Angst vor Heimweh, vor der neuen Sprache und davor, erst mal auf sich allein gestellt zu sein. Man war doch gerade froh gewesen, das eigene Unisystem verstanden zu haben, wie soll man das jetzt auch noch in einer neuen Stadt und in einem neuen Land schaffen? […]
Die internationale Studienorganisation AEGEE kümmert sich deshalb darum, euch solche Ängste zu nehmen.

Du möchtest ein demokratisches aktiv Europa mitgestalten? Mit AEGEE kannst Du das: mit dem Election Observation Project, dem Wahlbeobachtungprojekt von AEGEE. Wir sind nämlich die einzige Jugendorganisation, die von der Organisation für Sicherheit und Zusammenarbeit in Europa (OSZE/OSCE) für Wahlbeobachtungsmissionen zugelassen ist. Abgeschlossene Beobachtungsmissionen haben wir zum Beispiel bei den jeweils letzten Parlamentswahlen in Spanien, Großbritannien, Finnland, Estland, Moldawien und Bosnien vorzuweisen.
