  3. Rural support for authoritarian populism is strong – but another way is possible

    Ian Scoones
    15 Enero 2020

    The rise of authoritarian populism continues. Now the UK has a fully signed-up version in its new right-wing government, with allies in Trump, Modi, Bolsarano, Orban and others. It is a dangerous, but perhaps inevitable, trend.

    Transnational Institute (TNI)
    17 Diciembre 2019

    As the government meets to design a “roadmap” for developing the new national land law, TNI looks at how the situation has changed since the development of the National Land Use policy a few years ago and reflects on the issues at stake for millions of people across the country with rights to land in the current context.

    Policy issue

    We urgently need new, revitalised, visions of human rights, and rural communities are in the process of building just these kinds of visions. The climate crisis poses massive threats to human rights, but so do mainstream technical and economic climate ‘solutions’, and rising authoritarian voices around the world. The battle for resources and territories, including land, water, fisheries, and forests is becoming increasingly intense, with land-intensive renewable energy projects and the drive to marketise carbon and biodiversity additional threats to nature and to the livelihoods of rural and indigenous people around the world.

  7. Towards a corporate or a people's energy transition?

    06 Diciembre 2019

    The energy transition is in the news. Interest in energy transition ranges from actors such as peoples in resistance, workers, academics, and public administrations, to large corporations, international institutions and governments. The paradigm of energy transition, if it exists, runs a serious risk of being coopted by large companies, of being trivialized and placed at the service of the current system of social reproduction that seeks to perpetuate existing power relations.

  8. Extractivism and resistance in North Africa

    • Hamza Hamouchene
    20 Noviembre 2019

    Northern African countries are key suppliers of natural resources to the global economy, from large- scale oil and gas extraction in Algeria and Tunisia, to phosphate mining in Tunisia and Morocco, to water-intensive agribusiness paired with tourism in Morocco and Tunisia. The commodification of nature and privatisation of resources entailed in these projects has led to serious environmental damages, and forced these countries into a subservient position in the global economy, sustaining and deepening global inequalities.

  9. Our Oceans need a different approach

    Zoe Brent, Mads Barbesgaard, Carsten Pedersen
    24 Octubre 2019

    Delegates to the Our Oceans conference are gathering to discuss ocean sustainability, but there’s a big problem: their proposals will only sanitize continued resource extraction and environmental and ecological degradation.

  10. Whose Ocean?

    23 Octubre 2019

    On 23 and 24 October, Norway will host the “Our Ocean” conference: An annual international conference that was initiated in 2014 by the US Department of State outside of any UN process. The people who live with and are surrounded by the ocean, and who are most affected by the deterioration of the marine environment, are not present in the conference panels: Fishers, coastal communities and first-affected by climate change indigenous groups.

    Six key reads to understand the rising pressure on ocean space.

  12. The Amazon and the hell of power

    Francesco Martone
    03 Octubre 2019

    Power inferno”, this is the title Jean Baudrillard gave to one of his essays in the aftermath of the attack on the Twin Towers, paraphrasing the title of a catastrophic film that hit the billboards years earlier: A “Tower Inferno”. A hell of power. This we might say today, as in past occasions, of the Amazon, an image of fire, destruction and resistance, that has been cyclically appearing and reappearing in the media, and that periodically unleashes indignation and helplessness, as if the Amazon were some sort of symbol of past and future apocalypse.

  13. The Transnational Institute supports the Global Climate Strike

    24 Septiembre 2019

    The climate crisis is a manifestation of the systemic, capitalist crisis. We demand governments tackle the climate crisis by ending corporate power, facilitated by the trade and investment regime, that has long destroyed livelihoods and communities.

    This corporate impunity has led to the wholesale looting of the biosphere, authoritarian responses and worsening social, political and environmental conflicts, particularly in the Global South.

  14. Marine Spatial Planning

    • Thibault Josse, Marthin Hadiwinata, Henrikus Pratama, Zoe Brent, Mads Barbesgaard
    19 Septiembre 2019

    This report is based on on-going collaborative research between the Transnational Institute (TNI) and the Indonesian traditional fisher folk union, Kesatuan Nelayan Tradisional Indonesia (KNTI). For the past decade, Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) has become a popular policy tool to resolve conflicts over and in ocean space. Proponents claim that MSP can ensure a process that balances competing interests between different users of ocean space from large-scale extractive industries, to tourism companies to small-scale fishers.

  15. Unmasking the Blue Fix

    • Zoe Brent, Mads Barbesgaard, Carsten Pedersen
    18 Septiembre 2019

    Our relationship to the ocean has changed greatly over the centuries. For those who fish, it is their livelihood, while for trade the ocean is considered simply a surface across which goods can be shipped. At the beginning of the 20th century another era began, centred on the extraction of ocean resources from the seabed, and today there is talk of the “blue economy”, which promises a triple win on the ecological, social and economic fronts.

    23 Septiembre 2019 - Evento

    A conversation between Walden Bello and Prof. Jaap de Wilde.

  17. Landgrabbing: Contested meanings of land

    • Sylvia Kay
    06 Septiembre 2019

    Across the world, peasants, pastoralists, fishers, and indigenous peoples are losing their once effective control over the land, water, wetlands, pastures, fishing grounds and forests on which they depend including the right to decide how these natural resources will be used, when and by whom, at what scale and for what purposes, often for generations to come.

    Αυτή η έκθεση εξετάζει τις επιπτώσεις της λιτότητας στην Ελλάδα στο δικαίωμα στην τροφή. Καταλήγει στο συμπέρασμα ότι το ελληνικό κράτος και τα κράτη μέλη της Ευρωζώνης παραβίασαν το δικαίωμα του ελληνικού λαού στην τροφή ως αποτέλεσμα των μέτρων λιτότητας που απαιτήθηκαν από τα τρία Μνημόνια Κατανόησης (2010, 2012 και 2015). Με άλλα λόγια, τα πακέτα λιτότητας που επιβλήθηκαν στην Ελλάδα αντέβαιναν στο διεθνές δίκαιο των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων.

    Når magt vokser som ukrudt: Virksomhedsfusioner og kampen for vores madsystem

    • Katie Sandwell
    17 Mayo 2019

    Gigantvirksomheder har taget kontrollen over vores mad. I løbet af de sidste to år har disse virksomheder arbejdet på at fusionere, så de bliver til blot fire enorme virksomheder. Jo større disse virksomheder bliver, desto sværere er de at kontrollere, og jo mindre kontrol vi har over dem, desto sværere er det at opbygge et alternativt madsystem; et madsystem, som flere og flere efterspørger. Nemlig et madsystem, der anerkender menneskers værdi, har respekt for planeten og leverer og sikrer anstændigt og værdigt arbejde. Hvordan skete det, og hvad kan vi gøre ved det?
