    Hamza Hamouchene
    13 Julio 2021
    Article

    Durante las revueltas populares en el norte de África y en el oeste de Asia de hace una década (2010-2011), en el marco de la llamada “primavera árabe”, el pensamiento y la praxis de Frantz Fanon demostraron ser más relevantes que nunca. No sólo relevantes, sino perspicaces, ya que nos permiten entender mejor la violencia en el mundo maniqueo en el que vivimos y la racionalidad de la resistencia popular.

  3. Another step toward opaque undemocratic trade

    01 Julio 2021
    Declaration

    Information on an EU Commission proposal that has been leaked to the signing organisations shows once again how undemocratic EU trade policy can be. Indeed, the EC is proposing to split the EU-Mexico Global Agreement in three parts: Political and Cooperation; Investment agreement; and Trade Agreement. Splitting the agreement will allow for faster ratification by greater democratic deficit: the parliaments of the member states will not be asked for approval of the trade part of the agreement anymore.

    24 Junio 2021
    Annual report

    Solidarity is the cure. Justice is the vaccine. This was TNI’s rallying call as the pandemic broke in 2020. We knew that the pandemic impacted on a world already in crisis. Many existing inequities would be amplified – with a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable people, particularly in the Global South.

    • Cecilia Olivet, Luciana Ghiotto
    22 Junio 2021
    Report

    The investment arbitration regime has drawn enormous criticism in recent years. But a little-explored aspect is how this regime undermines the judiciary and the decisions made by national judges. This report takes the experience of Latin America and presents five scenarios to demonstrate that investor-State lawsuits and the arbitrators who decide on them violate the judiciary.

  7. Abolish national security

    • Arun Kundnani
    17 Junio 2021
    Paper

    In this publication Arun Kundnani argues that a politics of abolitionism offers the best approach to overcoming the failures of US national security policy. More than calls to abolish individual national security agencies, abolitionism offers a conceptual framework within which the concept of security can be rethought and actions taken towards a deep transformation of policy-making.

  9. Immunity is liberty

    Amitabha Sarkar
    16 Junio 2021
    Article

    The current vaccine crisis in the midst of a pandemic could be a tipping point for the current order of global governance. The global policy response and vaccine rollout have proven too inept to counter the catastrophic moral failure of affluent countries' vaccine hoarding. The WHO Director General’s performative pleas for vaccine equity have done little to move an intransigent system of global governance to address an emergency of this scale. What do these overlapping and related failures mean at national and international levels?

    Hamza Hamouchene
    16 Junio 2021
    Article

    Six decades after the death of the revolutionary thinker Frantz Fanon and the publication of his masterpiece The Wretched of the Earth, Algeria is witnessing another revolution, this time against the national bourgeoisie that Fanon railed against in his passionate and ferocious chapter ‘The Pitfalls of National Consciousness’. What would he say about the new Algerian revolution? How might he act in the face of current events? What can we as young Algerians learn from his reflections and experiences?

  11. Can we avoid more bloodshed? A reflection on the ethnic crisis in Myanmar

    15 Junio 2021
    Article

    After decades of conflict, it is often said that that political struggle in Myanmar has three groupings: military, pro-democracy and ethnic. But, as Cheery Zahau argues in this commentary, the ethnic nationality cause is frequently marginalised and misunderstood. Paradigm shifts in political behaviour and perspectives are required on all sides if the failures of the past are not to be repeated.

    Article

    In the aftermath of the November general election the intense fighting between the national armed forces (Tatmadaw) and the Arakan Army came to an unexpected halt. Since the February coup of the State Administration Council, the situation has remained delicately poised. Political sentiment is very high. But Rakhine nationalism is presently on a different cycle to political movements in other parts of the country. In this commentary Kyaw Lynn outlines why the coming months will remain a time of high tension and uncertainty in Arakan politics.

  15. How Seaspiracy misses the big picture

    Mads Barbesgaard, Zoe Brent, Carsten Pedersen, Daniel Boston
    23 Mayo 2021
    Article
    Seaspiracy vividly describes the speed and scale of extraction of natural resources from the oceans, but fails to investigate the underlying economic power and interests of specific actors in maintaining or even deepening the problems. Its limited analysis leads it to a limited conclusion: change consumer behaviour, change the world. But if we want to transform our relationship to the oceans and ocean resources, we need to confront and challenge theses powers – and that means political actions that go well beyond changing consumer patterns.

    Article

    Neo-capitalist development in the form of resource extraction in the North Eastern region of India has continuously expanded through mining, hydroelectric power plants, and militarised infrastructure, while basic necessities remain unmet. This has created a complex field for the contestation of identities, land sovereignty, and conflict.

    16 Mayo 2021
    Article

    Chile's national police, the Carabineros, have a long and bloody track record of silencing groups demanding their labour, social and economic rights. Their continued existence and violence shows how the Carabineros serve as a key institution for maintaining social structures that perpetuate social injustices that benefit the elite.

  20. Militarism and the police

    Andrew Metheven
    16 Mayo 2021
    Article

    Militarism is the glue that underpins violence being meted out to people around the world at the hands of the police and security forces. It will continue to sustain the violent, abusive, racist, oppressive policing that looks to uphold an oppressive and destructive status quo. It affects every one of us, so it is everyone’s concern.
