    اعتمـدت الدراسـة الحاليـة حـول حالـة قطـاع الطاقـة (بمـا فيهـا ا لمتجـددة) فـي تونـس علـى فكـرة مركزيـة وهـي أنَّ الطاقـة ليسـت سـلعةً لجنـي الأربـاح وإنمـا حـقّ. وتوضـح الدراسـة بشـكل تـام أن الحصـول علـى الطاقـة وإنتاجهـا همـا قضايـا سياسـية بامتيـاز وليسـت مسـائل تقنيـة بحتة. ومـن منظـور العدالة المرتكـزة علـى إعـادة التوزيـع، فهي تحـاول ا لإجابة على أسئلة مـن قبيل: مـن يملك ماذا؟ مـن يفعـل ماذا؟ مـن يحصل على ماذا؟ مـن يفـوز ومن يخسر؟ ومـن الـذي يسـتفيد مـن الملـك العمومي الجماعـي؟

  2. Vers une transition énergétique juste en Tunisie...

    • Ilyes Ben Ammar
    07 December 2022
    Report

    La présente étude sur l’état du secteur de l’énergie en Tunisie (y compris les énergies renouvelables), est basée sur l’idée centrale que l’énergie n’est pas une marchandise rentable, mais un droit. L’étude précise que l’accès à l’énergie et sa production sont des questions essentiellement politiques et non pas purement techniques. Partant du point de vue d’une justice redistributive, elle tente de répondre à des questions telles que : Qui possède quoi ? Qui fait quoi ? Qui obtient quoi ? Qui gagne et qui perd ? A qui profite le bien public collectif?

  3. Towards a just energy transition in Tunisia

    Report

    This study on the state of the energy sector in Tunisia (including renewable energy) is based on the key premise that energy is not a profit-making commodity, but a right. The study argues that access to energy and its production are political questions in essence, rather than purely technical ones. Drawing on a redistributive justice viewpoint, it addresses the following questions: Who owns what? Who does what? Who gets what? Who wins and who loses? Who benefits from the collective public good?

    05 December 2022

    La significancia del histórico discurso del Presidente Allende en 1972 se realiza para marcar el 50 aniversario del discurso del Presidente Salvador Allende ante la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas.

    Report

    Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, western governments have pledged unprecedented financial support to militarism, citing the threat posed by the war as justification. Political leaders have repeatedly deemed this response to be reasonable, proportionate, and necessary to support Ukraine’s war effort and to deter Russia from advancing further westward.

    Report

    بينما يجتمع مفاوضو المناخ في العالم لحضور مؤتمر الأمم المتحدة المعني بتغيّر المناخ (كوب 27) في مصر، يبدو أن التطرق إلى موضوع الإنفاق العسكري ضمن جدول الأعمال الرسمي بعيد الاحتمال. مع ذلك، وكما يوضح هذا التقرير، فإن الإنفاق العسكري ومبيعات الأسلحة لهما أثر شديد ودائم على القدرة على تصدي أزمة المناخ، ناهيك عن وضع العدالة في صميم العمل المناخي. كل دولار يُنفق على العسكر لا يساهم في زيادة انبعاثات غازات الاحتباس الحراري فحسب، بل يؤدي أيضًا إلى تحويل الموارد المالية والمهارات والاهتمام بعيدًا عن معالجة أحد أكبر التهديدات الوجودية التي واجهتها البشرية على الإطلاق. علاوة على ذلك، فإن الارتفاع المستمر في الأسلحة والمعدات العسكرية في جميع أنحاء العالم يسهم في تفاقم مشكلة المناخ وإثارة العنف والصراع وتتضاعف معاناة المجتمعات الأكثر عرضة للانهيار المناخي.

    Corporate Power: Then and Now - The Significance of President Allende’s Historic 1972 Speech

    05 December 2022

    This symposium is organized to mark the 50th anniversary of late President Salvador Allende’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly in 1972.

    Opinion

    When Spain and the Netherlands – the birthplace of the ECT – signalled their intention to withdraw from the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), the dominoes began to fall, with France,Germany, Slovenia and Luxembourg also following suit. This culminated with a vote in the European Parliament on 24 November, where a majority with more than 100 votes difference chose to ditch the treaty.

    Paper

    Este estudio explora cómo los paraísos fiscales se han vuelto regiones geográficas predilectas a la hora de almacenar datos. No es una relación directa ni causal, como veremos, pero si hay una suerte de predilección por almacenar esta materia prima estratégica en estas guaridas fiscales.

    Paper

    This study explores how tax havens have now become the preferred destinations for data storage. It is not a direct or causal relationship, as we shall see, but there is a strong tendency to store this strategic raw material in these havens.

    • Dafne Yeltekin
    23 November 2022
    Paper

    Climate change is increasingly treated as a security issue by high income countries with disproportionately high levels of military spending. However there are more low and middle income countries integrating climate security language into their national strategies. This discussion paper explores the implications and the dangers of militarised responses that could further deepen injustice for those most affected by the climate crisis.

  20. Climate Collateral

    • Mark Akkerman, Deborah Burton, Nick Buxton, Ho-Chih Lin, Muhammed Al-Kashef
    14 November 2022
    Report

    This report shows that military spending and arms sales have a deep and lasting impact on the capacity to address the climate crisis, let alone in a way that promotes justice. Every dollar spent on the military not only increases greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but also diverts financial resources, skills and attention away from tackling one of the greatest existential threats humanity has ever experienced.
