Unha festa desde o Centro Goianés (cuxa orixe é unha icona da diáspora galega) que foi retransmitida en directo, facéndose eco dunha mensaxe de colaboración e cooperación, onde ninguén foi estranxeiro.

O traballo e o esforzo por incluír a Galicia no escenario internacional, respectando a diversidade e abrazando a cooperación e colaboración entre pobos irmáns, marcou unha noite xa histórica.

The XXIV Plácido Castro Annual Conference will take place on Wednesday, January 25 in Oleiros (8:00 pm, Cultural Center of A Fábrica, Perillo)

The Foundation’s 2023 annual conference will be given by the historian Xavier R. Madriñán, professor of Geography and History and PhD in Political Science. He was editor-in-chief of the magazine Encrucillada (1989-1999) and director of the bibliographic magazine Guía dos Libros Novos (1998-2002).

The topic to be addressed will be “Ireland in Plácido Castro”, detailing the importance that Ireland had in the definition of Plácido Castro’s thinking, both in the political field and in other areas. Likewise, it will identify the features that make up Plácido Castro’s ideology in this aspect and that make him unique with respect to other Galicians. In the attention and debate developed by the Galicians in the first half of the 20th century, Castro, the only one of them all who actually set foot in Ireland, was a temperate and rigorous voice.

Within the framework of the IGADI, the Plácido Castro Foundation stands out for its connectivity to Ireland, in a systematic work since 2002, the year the Foundation was created. You can find all the information about the activity in this news

The IGADI´s Observatory of Diasporas is born: From Galicia to the world

The Observatorio Das Diásporas is a space created to link and give new meaning to the Galician identity abroad, through academic, social and strategic ties that dignify the importance of belonging to Galicia not only from history but from the international significance that diasporas have nowadays.

In accordance with the specific mandate of the International Organization for Migration (United Nations), it is essential to work with and for diasporas in view of the 2030 Goals. To do this, we must understand that the diaspora is a “Group of migrants or descendants of migrants whose identity and feeling of belonging, whether real or symbolic, derive from their experience and their migratory background. Diaspora members maintain ties to their country of origin and to each other, based on a shared history and identity or common experiences in the country of destination”1.

Currently, one (1) out of every six (6) Galicians lives abroad. This statement published by the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations of Spain2 makes us aware of the magnitude of the Galician diaspora and its special characteristics, which are completely different from other Spanish regions.

All over the world, communities have an increasing degree of diversity, multiculturalism and interconnectedness, which is largely due to diasporas; maintaining ties to their countries of origin or heritage. That can have highly beneficial multiplier effects, not just for global business and trade; but in cultural exchange and diplomatic relations, encouraging governments to take their diasporas into account in national development policies and programs.

Through this Observatorio Das Diásporas and with this clear objective, special interest will be given to the visibility of current and future achievements of the Galician diaspora abroad, and of those who live in the territory of Galicia as part of the IDIASPORA Global Network. of the United Nations whose purpose is to interact with the global community and generate connections between those who want to bring positive change through resources and opportunities to create a better future.

Harry e Meghan encaixan perfeitamente nesa ¨cultura da ofensa¨ que tanto prosperou nos últimos tempos e que da direito a ¨cancelar¨ ou suprimir todo o que os novos puritanos non queren que exista. Encaixan tamén na moda de non dar importancia á verdade e sustituila pola ¨verdade¨ que cada un sinte e conta á sua maneira.

EEUU: Los cauces de su política exterior

Liñas de investigación International Relations
Apartados xeográficos United States
La noción de poseer un modelo de sociedad superior y de constituir la expresión de una historia excepcional en los anales de la humanidad, representan la esencia de su narrativa mitológica. También su política exterior se encuadra dentro de esta misma noción. Como bien señalaba Thomas Jefferson, la política exterior de ese país debía reposar en valores morales superiores sustentados en la religión civil del país: la democracia.
