After two and a half months of negotiations, consultations and concessions, the trio of Social Democrats (SPD), Greens (BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN) and Liberals (FDP), winners of the recent federal elections in Germany, finally agreed on the formation of the Ampel-Koalition. This three-way marriage is formalized in a 177-page document entitled Mehr Fortschritt wagen (coalition in tricolour)…

Should we celebrate our lives as years tick away or rather mourn our fate? Farafina Institute has over the past year, 2021, observed events in the world that justify mourning by most of us. Yet, at the same time last year and the year before, events offer us all in the world a timely cause to celebrate the re-emergence of social goods that have escaped the world for a long while now…

2020 will remain in our memories as the year of Covid-19; the year when most people’s focus was on avoiding infection by the dreadful virus. Most of us were convinced that keeping distance from other people, disinfecting our hands, wearing masks, avoiding gatherings and travels, and following several other rules of virus prevention would keep us safe.

In our collective imagination, Christmas is therefore the day of the children, symbolized by the visit of the famous Santa Claus with his many gifts for kids.

Partout dans le monde – chrétien en tout cas – on s’apprête pour les festivités de Noël. L’Emmanuel, Dieu avec nous, s’incarne en l’enfant Jésus, dans une crèche à Bethléem. La fête de Noël est donc, dans notre imaginaire collectif, la fête des enfants, symbolisée par la visite du fameux père Noël avec ses nombreux cadeaux pour les tout-petits. Cette tradition, de près ou de loin, nous parle à tous…

Auf der ganzen christlichen Welt bereiten sich die Menschen auf die
Weihnachtsfeierlichkeiten vor. Emmanuel, Gott mit uns, verkörpert sich im Kind Jesus, in einer Krippe in Bethlehem. Weihnachten ist daher in unserer gemeinsamen Vorstellung, dem Kinderfest, symbolisiert durch den Besuch des berühmten Weihnachtsmanns mit seinen vielen Geschenken für Kinder. Diese Tradition, von nah oder fern, spricht uns alle an…..
