Energy has for a long time been a crucial issue in national and world politics. Not only is it essential for the growth of economies. Access to and generation of energy fundamentally affect individual living conditions in an even larger number of aspects - the incidents in Fukushima being a recent reminder. In this issue, Survival International focuses on another of the flipsides of power generation, when describing the impact of the Gilgel Gibe III hydroelectric dam in Ethiopia's Omo Valley.

Although there is an observable trend of secularization and de-attachment from religious institutions in some parts of the world, especially in European countries, religion remains an important part of social identification in all societies. As Annira Busch explains, even in a secular country like Germany where about one third of the population considers itself as non-religious, there has been a noticeable resurgence of religion in the public and political debate in the last couple of years which is closely linked to the increasing importance of Islam in Germany.

No less than 200 million people around the world, it is safe to estimate, will decide to or be forced to move to another country during 2011. As Kristin Heinig explains in her article, after decades of hot tempered debate, Germany is only just beginning to accept its role as a country of immigration. Meanwhile, West Africa has dealt with migration rather more pragmatically in the past, a stance, which is becoming subject to a substantial shift, migration-expert Dr. Laurence Marfaing tells us in our interview. In the Alumni profile, Chidiogo Akunyili reflects on personal motives for migration. (PDF-Version: 942 KB)

As much as human life is not conceivable without the various and rich expressions of culture, the latter is also a competetive and sensitive issue. High hopes for its integrative and economic potential have become as evident as anxieties when it comes to cultural politics. In this issue of JointMAG, our contributors have a look at the connections between culture and economy, inner politics, and international relations. They also had the chance to talk to protagonists of the Ugandan and Kenyan music and arts scenes, who kindly shared their view on the potential of this sector in their respective countries, and are also familiar with the challenges to making their ideas work.

Corruption has been identified as a problem in the functioning of democratic political systems for a few years now. Our contributors to this issue of JointMAG have thus asked themselves: Where do we stand in adressing this problem? They have come up with a look at policies to fight corruption in Ghana, problems with anti-corruption measures in Germany and the political instrumentalisation of anti-corrution policies in Zimbabwe. A highly informative, though far from complete, look at what is happening in Germany and parts of Africa. Over all of this, however, don´t forget about the good things in life. A story about a field trip of GAGG Alumni and some words from the current scholarship holder Dorothy will certainly help.
