Harrison Mwilima at Deutsche Welle, which is a leg of the German public broadcasting system, has designed a new form of cooperation between Africa and Europe: Europe denies all its interests and African regimes get everything they want.
For that to work Europeans have to listen. Currently they work with dictators, he abhors, just to curb migration. They should rather listen to same dictators, he proposes. The piece is another intellectual gem highlighting the quality of German public broadcasting.
Germany will soon have a law which demands that executive boards must include women. Time has moved fast. What would have been an innocuous or irrelevant piece of legislation a decade ago tastes very badly with this entire culture war backdrop in 2021. There are already women quotas for the dubious supervisory boards and it looks like only a matter of time until we are in an affirmative-action jungle where everything is rewarded but merit.
little correction: I said 1 in 3 board members. Yet it’s 1 if a board is larger than 3. The mistake is immaterial for the overall discussion.
