Bridging the gap: Global Voices


Posted by Heleen

Bridging the gap: Global Voices, other cultures and what about Dutch immigrants in Spain?

For bloggers who are interested in World-bloggers: Visit Global Voices and see what is happening in other countries.


Global Voices Online is a non-profit global citizens’ media project, sponsored by and launched from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School.

How Global Voices Works:
A growing number of bloggers around the world are emerging as “bridge bloggers:” people who are talking about their country or re
fotogion to a global audience. Global Voices is your guide to the most interesting conversations, information, and ideas appearing around the world on various forms of participatory media such as blogs, podcasts, photo sharing sites, and videoblogs.
Our global team of regional blogger-editors is working to find, aggregate and track these conversations. Each day they link to 5-10 of the most interesting blog posts from their regions in the “daily roundups” section. A larger group of contributing bloggers is posting daily features in in the left-hand Weblog section, shedding light on what blogging communities in their countries have been talking about recently”.


If you visit the website, you can just “click” at different countries and see what other bloggers are writing about. Interesting fact: I glanced at the number of Dutch bloggers and found out that the number of Dutch bloggers is very limited.

Bridging the gap, and what about Dutch immigrants?
To reach our goal: bridging the gap in blogspace, I myself find it very important to write about other cultures and take notice of the advantages of other cultures instead of the disadvantages. And what about generalizations? Or creating fear by saying that “Islam is a dangerous religion”. Do we really understand other cultures and do we understand for instance the immigrants who are coming to or living in the Netherlands? Are most Dutch people really interested in other cultures? We travel a lot, that’s what Dutch people became “famous” about, but are we really interested in other cultures? And what about Dutch immigrants in other countries?

I recently took notice of a study about European immigrants in Spain (Costa del Sol): (Karen O’Reilly): Karen O'Reilly Dutch, British and other Europian immigrants do not take part of the Spanish society at all:

To summarise some of the findings (results): people of all ages are now moving to Spain and are increasingly choosing inland as well as coastal areas in which to settle. Many are older and retired, which has implications for health and social service provision as they age. However, younger families are now migrating with their children, which in turn has implications with regard to schooling and the specific health needs of young families. The data presented in this report on integration have further implications which this section aims to reveal. A third of migrants rarely or never meet Spanish people (other than in shops and restaurants), 60 per cent do not speak good Spanish, half never read a Spanish newspaper, most have never voted in an election in Spain, half do not have residence cards, and over a third are not registered on the town hall register. Furthermore, many are not registered with the local doctor or health service and rely solely, in times of sickness, on the free or reduced cost emergency cover to which they are entitled as members of the EU (Form E111), but which is meant for tourists not residents in Spain. A significant number are working in the informal economy”.

Enjoy other cultures!
Meet other people of different cultures: not only in other countries but also in the Netherlands. Try different kinds of food and music!
I visit Turkey regularly, and, if possible, I try to speak (a little bit) the Turkish language, I try the Turkish food and I enjoy the hospitality of the Turkish people. They often say when you visit them: “hos geldiniz” (welcome!). I also like Turkish music, Raï (Algeria). In my city, Utrecht (The Netherlands) I also visit Turkish shops (groceries, bakeries) and I am trying to cook turkish.


I would like to excuse me for my bad english (dinglish): Fot Dutch bloggers: see also “I always get my sin” (author: Maarten Rijkens).
