  2. Drugs and Conflict in Burma

    08 February 2011

    Burma/Myanmar is undergoing yet another humanitarian crisis while entering a new critical political stage. In the Kokang region, an opium ban was enforced in 2003, and since mid-2005 no more poppy growing has been allowed in the Wa region. Banning opium in these Shan State regions where most of the Burmese opiates were produced, adds another chapter to the long and dramatic history of drugs, conflict and human suffering.

  7. The Land Deal Politics Initiative (LDPI)

    01 January 2010

    The aim of Land Deal Politics Initiative is for a broad framework encompassing the political economy, ecology and sociology of land deals. Globally, powerful transnational actors are tapping into lands outside their own borders to provide sufficient food and energy security at home. The original North-South dynamic of the 'global land grab' is developing into a North-South-South dynamic, with economically powerful non-Northern countries now getting involved. The reaction to this trend by state, corporate and civil society groups has been varied, moving between the extremes of seeing it as a major threat to the lives and livelihoods of rural people, to seeing it as an economic opportunity for the rural poor worldwide.

TNI believes that social transformation is only achieved by building partnerships, particularly with social movements actively combatting injustice and constructing alternatives.
