    Katerina Gladkova
    23 April 2018
    Article

    The joint report produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and INTERPOL in 2016 paints a rather grim picture of the extent of environmental crime worldwide. It identifies it as the fourth largest criminal enterprise globally, right behind drug smuggling, counterfeiting, and human trafficking. Two questions are worth pondering here: to quote George Monbiot, how did we get into this mess and what can we do about it?

    Ecofeminism: fueling the journey to energy democracy

    Lavinia Steinfort
    12 September 2018
    Article

    The growing call for the feminisation of politics – and energy politics for that matter – is about much more than merely increasing the representation of women in decision-making positions. We need to question the ways energy politics are shaped. We need to ask, energy for whom and energy for what?

  13. Climate and Environmental (in)justice

    01 January 2010
    Topic

    The environmental crisis is worsening day by day: Climate change is an urgent global threat with dramatically different effects around the world; air pollution and biodiversity loss driven by habitat destruction and the impacts of industrial agriculture are just some of its manifestations. Around the world communities and social movements have historically developed ways of relating to non-human nature in more balanced ways. Today, a growing number of “false solutions” to the environmental crisis rely on market-based projects that further erode local communities’ democratic control over resources and increase corporate take-over of those resources, now described as “sustainable development”. A clear understanding of the systemic forces driving climate change and environmental destruction on the one hand, and exploitation and dispossession of communities on the other, is critical to seeking out and realizing real solutions to urgent environmental threats.

  18. In Search of Rights

    • The Research Consortium on Drugs and the Law (CEDD)
    09 July 2014

    The Research Consortium on Drugs and the Law (Colectivo de Estudios Drogas y Derecho, CEDD) has published a new study that assesses state responses to illicitly-used drugs in eight countries in Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. The study found that Latin American governments’ approach to drug use continues to be predominantly through the criminal justice system, not health institutions. Even in countries where consumption is not a crime, persistent criminalization of drug users is common.
