    Zoe Brent, Mads Barbesgaard, Carsten Pedersen

    18 Septiembre 2019

    When the Dutch government liberalised cannabis policy in 1976, they understood that the legalisation and regulation of cannabis was actually the best solution, or at least the least bad one.

  4. This ban is a modern-day witch hunt

    Berna Toprak , Nawal Mustafa
    13 Agosto 2019

    By banning the burka, the Dutch state is imposing its own view of what is right for Muslim women, write Berna Toprak and Nawal Mustafa on behalf of S.P.E.A.K. The feminist principle of women’s autonomy over their own bodies is now at risk.

  7. mPOWER

    10 Septiembre 2018

    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

    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.

  11. Border Wars II slider image

    Guerras de frontera

    25 Mayo 2018

    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.

  12. Authoritarianism thumbnail image


    17 Abril 2018

    The rise in authoritarianism is often credited to the successful machinations of charismatic, skillful charlatans, ignoring the longer historical trends towards authoritarianism which has become deeply embedded in contemporary politics, economics and society. TNI has brought together researchers and activists worldwide to examine the underlying causes of today's authoritarian wave with a view to examining how progressive forces' resistance can better challenge and articulate emancipatory alternatives.

    Border Wars

    05 Abril 2018

    The default response for dealing with rising numbers of refugees and migrants has been to militarise borders rather than address humanitarian needs or tackle the underlying causes of people forced to uproot from home. TNI's Border Wars work looks at the globalisation of border security, the way it criminalises refugees and those who support them, the policies that have put security above human rights, and the corporate interests that are driving the agenda and profiting from it.
