  9. mPOWER

    10 Septiembre 2018
    Tema

    When it comes to managing the energy transition the need for municipal level innovation has never been clearer. In recent years, we have seen some successes, where innovative ideas have led to more equitable, just and democratic energy policies. However, the sharing of these ideas has been limited, and they have tended to remain local and specific. To achieve large scale, replicable success we need a coordinated and integrated approach for collaboration and knowledge-sharing. Enter: mPOWER

    mPOWER is a 4-year programme that will enable in-depth, wide-scale and systematic city to city learning among at least 100 local public authorities, in order to replicate innovative best practices in municipal energy, and developing ambitious energy transition plans.

    To find out more about mPOWER, visit municipalpower.org.

    mPOWER is run by a consortium composed of the University of Glasgow (UK), Platform (UK), Transnational Institute (Netherlands), Energy Cities (EU-wide), IPE (Croatia), University of the Basque Country (ES), and Carbon Co-op (UK).

    The mPOWER project and consortium are funded by the Horizon 2020 EU Research and Innovation programme. The project started in May 2018 and will last four years.

    Guerras de frontera

    25 Mayo 2018
    Tema

    La respuesta por defecto para tratar de responder al número creciente de personas refugiadas y migrantes ha sido militarizar las fronteras en lugar de abordar las necesidades humanitarias o las causas de base que obligan a las personas a abandonar su hogar. El trabajo del TNI sobre las guerras de frontera analiza la globalización de la seguridad fronteriza, la forma en que criminaliza a las personas refugiadas y a quienes les apoyan, las políticas que han situado la seguridad por encima de los derechos humanos y los intereses empresariales que impulsan la agenda securitaria y se benefician de ella.
