  3. La fórmula del crecimiento azul al descubierto

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

    Nuestro vínculo con el océano ha cambiado mucho a lo largo de los siglos. Para quienes se dedican a la pesca es su base vital y para el comercio el océano se considera simplemente una superficie para transportar bienes. A principios del siglo XX se dio paso a otra época centrada en la extracción de recursos oceánicos del fondo marino y hoy se habla de la ‘economía azul’, que promete una victoria en los frentes ecológico, social y económico.

  4. 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.

  8. A landscape of ocean and land-control grabbing in Northern Tanintharyi, Myanmar

    • Mads Barbesgaard
    20 Noviembre 2018

    After a spout of optimism surrounding Myanmar’s so-called democratic transition in the post-2010 period, more recent work by CSOs and academics have emphasized the rampant and violent processes of land and ocean grabbing that this transition is facilitating. Drawing on a case from Northern Tanintharyi in the Southeast of the country, this article attempts to historicize contemporary accounts of these grabbing processes.

  9. 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.

    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.
