    Los movimientos populares prosperan en todo el mundo, mientras nos enfrentamos a una impunidad cada vez mayor por parte de las grandes empresas y una creciente violencia estatal. En la séptima edición de 'Estado del poder', publicada en español por el Transnational Institute y Fuhem Ecosocial, examinamos los movimientos sociales de hoy, su potencial para generar contrapoderes y cómo podemos organizarnos para luchar contra la injusticia y, a la vez, sentar las bases para una transformación a largo plazo.

  3. It takes a hurricane... Puerto Rico’s yearning for energy democracy

    • Antonio Carmona Báez
    30 Julio 2018
    Paper

    On the evening of 22 January 2018, the Governor of Puerto Rico announced the complete privatisation of the island’s power utility. The public statement came four months after hurricanes Irma and Maria, which devastated the archipelago leaving thousands of people homeless or dead and over 40 percent of the population without access to electricity and running water. Puerto Rico’s energy system was crumbling long before the tropical weather systems of September 2017 hit the archipelago. The hurricanes only laid bare the unsustainable conditions of the extremely expensive and fossil fuel-generated electrical power regime.

  4. El autoritarismo europeo en jaque

    • Nikolai Huke, David Bailey, Mònica Clua-Losada, Julia Lux, Olatz Ribera Almandoz
    27 Julio 2018
    Paper

    Las instituciones y los Gobiernos de la UE respondieron a la crisis de la eurozona con una mezcla de austeridad y autoritarismo que exacerbó la precariedad y menoscabó la democracia liberal. Sin embargo, un estudio de los movimientos sociales pone de manifiesto que esta despolitización tecnocrática solo triunfó en parte, ya que la exclusión creciente de las personas de los espacios de toma democrática de decisiones también generó nuevas formas de organización que han abierto posibles vías para un cambio social radical.

    Report

    The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a mega regional trade deal involving sixteen nations from Asia-Pacific. RCEP will impact the lives of billions of people, from the quality of the food they eat to the energy they consume and the affordability of life-saving medicines. Yet, RCEP negotiations are being conducted almost completely in secret, with limited to no meaningful public participation. Most elected officials have, at best, limited access to the negotiating texts, which remain out of reach for civil society.

  10. Populism from above and below: agriculture and the political ambiguities of the Workers’ Party in Brazil

    • Daniela Andrade
    03 Julio 2018
    Paper

    Brazil has recently undergone a shift from economic growth to recession, as well as from a left-wing, neo-developmentalist politics to one on the far-right, authoritarian and economically ultraliberal. Such an economic and political U-turn touched upon the countryside in contrasting ways. This paper reflects on the politics of the past. It suggests that the road to regression was paved during the tenure of the Worker’s Party (PT), when politics were considered both popular and progressive. And it was under the PT’s rule when the ‘rural world’ mattered the most for politics.
