莱茵论坛 第146期 活动讲座总结 – 寻找穿越国境的“中国因素“,一个中国国际新闻记者的视角 | Rhine Academic Forum e.V. – Event no. 146 [Summary]: In search for across-border “Chinese elements” – Perspectives of a Chinese international journalist

来自端传媒的记者宁卉以独特的视角讲述了海外华人在当地社会的身份认同和对当地社会文化的感悟。同样包括海外媒体对于中国因素的不同的理解和解读方式。

宁卉指出, “中国”已经迅速成为媒体的主要叙事元素之一,然而,由于各种原因,媒体上的“中国因素”,往往带有非黑即白的观点,其原因包括今天的两极分化的话语,以及观众的不同信仰和利害关系。宁卉认为,这对于我们都在试图理解的各种事件并不公平。她试图给出有区分的视角,通过她的报道获得新的事实,听取不同持份者的故事,围绕着经济、政治或文化等话题,也伴随着一言难尽的情绪碰撞:这些故事,可能来自欧盟议员,杰出的欧洲哲学家,在刚果的中国商家,莫桑比克政府部长,乌克兰战争的老兵,研究者和非政府组织,中国木材贸易商和建筑公司,在加莱的丛林的苏丹难民……

通过宁卉的讲述,听众从不同的讲述视角获得了不同的解读方式,使得视角更加的多元化。总之,在这次活动中丰富了论坛多元化的讨论视角。

Introduction: China, along with its fast-growing economic performance, the increasing emergence of global economic integration and dynamic politics, has been one of the internationally most discussed topics in the early 21st century. As such it gradually becomes a virtually omnipresent main narrative within the media landscape. The international community is actively trying to deepen and improve its understanding of China in many ways. We’re frequently offered a variety of perspectives, yet they appear to be either starkly pro- or anti-China. This can, due to numerous reasons, including the polarized media discourse, various beliefs or stakes of audiences, cause situations, which are hard to understand. Ning Hui, our speaker, who has been actively reporting from a dozen of different countries since 2013, finds this simple juxtaposition of happenings inappropriate. The way of understanding shall not be one-sided. Understanding China includes grasping knowledge on how things are understood, communicated, and transferred within China itself and between people in-/outside of China. In this case, her approach includes not only people well known in media, but also those voices, which we might not often heard without any in-depth reporting. For a better understanding, she tries to get perspectives outside of that stark juxtaposition of one-sided narratives. Her encounters, to name a few, include MEPs in EU, a prominent European philosopher (Slovej Zizek), Chinese shop owners in Congo, a Mozambique government Minister, an Ukrainian war veteran, researchers and NGOs, Chinese timber traders and construction companies, and Sudanese refugees in the jungle of Calais. As an experienced journalist, she will present us her stories from across European, Asian, and African borders, with a focus of Chinese elements in the everchanging geo-political world. Central questions include: “How do Chinese communities function in the Congo Basin and Mozambique?”, “Does the multi-billion ‘One Belt and One Road’-program of the government of China converge community, economies and political aspirations across countries?”, “How are the current European headlines discussed across Chinese readers?” After the presentation, there will be some time for Q&A to further certain topics and/or exchange between our audience and Ning Hui.  

About the speaker: Ning Hui 宁卉, to some known as Lulu, was born and raised in a small village in mainland China. She’s currently based in Brussels, working for the well-known media “Initium” (Hong Kong). Given her educational experiences within multidisciplinary studies in mainland China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, and the UK on politics, journalism and public policy, as well as several years’ experiences of being a journalist working with international media, in addition to her working experience at international organizations, including the UN Women and Oxfam, she has gained ample observation from both inside and outside China. Her education focused on politics, journalism, and public policy (development and governance). She’s currently Senior Journalist for International News at Initium Media, before that she was working as Chief Europe Reporter for Globus, Caixin Media. Ms. Ning has covered a broad range of topics: incl. refugees, migration, populism, gender, poverty, climate change, among others. The Rhine Academic Forum e.V. welcomes everyone who is interested in this topic to join our 146th event on Saturday, the 28th of April 2018. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!


中文介紹: “中国”已经迅速成为媒体的主要叙事元素之一,然而,由于各种原因,媒体上的“中国因素”,往往带有非黑即白的观点,其原因包括今天的两极分化的话语,以及观众的不同信仰和利害关系。宁卉认为,这对于我们都在试图理解的各种事件并不公平。她试图给出有区分的视角,通过她的报道获得新的事实,听取不同持份者的故事,围绕着经济、政治或文化等话题,也伴随着一言难尽的情绪碰撞:这些故事,可能来自欧盟议员,杰出的欧洲哲学家,在刚果的中国商家,莫桑比克政府部长,乌克兰战争的老兵,研究者和非政府组织,中国木材贸易商和建筑公司,在加莱的丛林的苏丹难民…… 关于主讲人: 宁卉在中国大陆的一个小村庄出生和长大,现在常驻布鲁塞尔,为来自香港的深度报道媒体“端传媒”工作。多年来,宁卉一直在不同国家的新闻现场报道。此次分享,她将带来作为中国记者,在穿越欧亚非国境线进行报道时所体验的点滴——刚果盆地、莫桑比克的丛林里,活跃着怎样的中国社群?热议的“一带一路“,牵扯出怎样的人、怎样的志向?同时,难民危机、反全球化、分离主义……就着欧洲头条新闻,来自中国大陆、香港和台湾的中文读者又在进行着怎样的对话?

主讲人简介: 宁卉, 现任香港端传媒国际新闻记者。此前为财新传媒旗下《世界说》常驻布鲁塞尔的欧洲记者。从业以来,她已经在欧洲、非洲、亚洲和美洲超过15个国家发出过报道。在独立报道期间,她的一部分新闻作品面向英文读者,包括英国《卫报》(The Guardian)、美国《外交政策》(Foreign Policy)、《石英》(Quartz)等;另一部分则出现在大陆、香港和台湾的媒体上,包括财新网、《时尚先生》、香港端传媒、台湾《经典杂志》等。 宁卉出生成长在浙江西部的农村,在成为记者前,依次在中国内地、香港、荷兰和英国的大学就读, 专攻政治、新闻和公共政策等方面的学习.  之后曾在国际机构联合国和乐施会工作过,关注性别、扶贫、气候变化、企业社会责任等议题。

中文介绍: 这讲座主要从多层次角度来观察中国的治理体系. 改革开放时期,中国经历了一个巨大的经济增长和城市发展时期,主要集中在沿海地区。几十年来,中国中部,特别是东北地区所谓的“资源型城市”(RBC)为中国的发展提供了必要的资源。 然而,新千年以后,出现了所谓资源枯竭型城市。从2002的阜新开始,资源枯竭型城市数量迅速增长,从2007年12个增加到2013年的67个。为应对这些城市面临的环境、经济和社会挑战,中国国务院于2007和2013颁布了重大的转型战略和规划. 在日前已确定的262个资源枯竭型城市里, 每三个地级市和每六个县级市都有受到规划的影响。本次研究的重点是其中煤炭资源枯竭型城市中唯一成功转型脱离资源枯竭名号的城市:山西省孝义市。

Introduction (original): The lecture focuses on the Chinese governance system from a multi-level perspective. During the opening and reform period, China experienced a tremendous economic growth and urban development that mainly focused on the coastal areas. For decades, so called ‘resource-based cities’ (RBC) in Central China and especially the Northeast provided the necessary resources to fuel China’s growth. Since the new millennium, however, so-called resource-exhausted cities emerged. Starting with Fuxin in 2002, their number quickly grew from 12 in 2007 to 67 in 2013. To tackle the environmental, economic and social challenges within these cities, the Chinese State Council issued major transformation strategies and plans in 2007 and 2013. With 262 RBC’s identified at the moment, every third prefectural-level and every sixth county-level city in China is affected. The study focuses on the only successful transformation of a formerly coal-based resource-exhausted city in China that is now not a resource-based city anymore: the county-level city of Xiaoyi in Shanxi province.

距2014年德国队再次捧得世界杯冠军60年前,1954年7月4日,来自鲁尔地区“红白艾森”俱乐部的前锋赫尔穆特·拉恩在世界杯比赛第84分钟打入制胜进球,帮助联邦德国队击败了当时如日中天的匈牙利队,成功书写下德国历史上第一次世界杯冠军的历史。这次比赛中德国队历经种种波折后最终在伯尔尼夺冠的经历被总结冠以“伯尔尼奇迹”。

在之后漫长的岁月中,“伯尔尼奇迹”在被书写、回忆、纪念和使用的过程中,逐渐被历史化和被神话。迄今为止,德国队四次世界杯夺冠,仅次于巴西,而总成绩甚至当仁不让地排名历史第一,伯尔尼夺冠可谓德国足球崛起的“零时刻”。二战结束,两德分立,举国上下百废待兴,“伯尔尼奇迹”的影响力远远超出了足球,不仅在事后被理解为“联邦德国诞生的真正时刻”,整个球队团结协作,奋力拼搏的表现,也被诠释成为德国足球乃至整个国家的精神特质,鼓舞了人民重建家园的精神,并再次树立了正面的德国国家形象。

“人人都是自己的历史学家”,历史从来不只是单调的乐章,而是可以看作由事件、经历和神话所组成的三调合奏。又逢世界杯年,让我们通过回顾德国的“伯尔尼奇迹“产生和影响, 聊足球,品历史, 一同感受历史与现今的跨时空联结。
