  1. Multistakeholderism

    31 မတ်လ 2021
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    Multistakeholderism offers corporations an increasingly powerful role in global decision-making and is becoming a default form of global governance. TNI's concern at this privatisation of global governance and its lack of democratic accountability led to a project that since 2016 has been analysing the impacts, mapping its scope, and proposing alternatives.

    Myanmar Election 2020

    27 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2020
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    On 8 November 2020, Myanmar went to the polls for the second time after a process of political liberalisation was initiated in 2011, a critical moment in Myanmar’s transition from half a century under military rule. The National League for Democracy again won a large victory, but the military State Administration Council took power on 1 February 2021.

    COVID-19

    02 ဧပြီလ 2020
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    This pandemic health crisis impacts a world already in crisis. It will have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable in our society and particularly in the Global South unless we mobilise and demand a just response to the pandemic. It is a wake-up call that the current capitalist economic system is not fit to protect the health of us as individuals or as societies. We must learn the lessons to defeat COVID-19, address the multiple crises we face―from accelerating inequality to the climate crisis―and build the just sustainable society we all desire.

    Davos and the World Economic Forum

    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2020
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    The World Economic Forum that meets in Davos annually is more than an elite talk-shop or trade show. It has also been the birthplace of many neoliberal policies and programmes including the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). In recent years, the World Economic Forum has openly pushed to replace the multilateral form of governance with a multistakeholder approach, in which corporations play a more significant role.

  7. mPOWER

    10 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2018
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    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.

    Authoritarianism

    17 ဧပြီလ 2018
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    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.

  9. Border Wars II slider image

    Border Wars

    05 ဧပြီလ 2018
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    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.

    Drugs & Conflict

    15 သြဂုတ်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား
    Initially focusing on coca producing areas in the Andean Region, TNI's work on Drugs & Conflict has since expanded to cover the world’s main opium producing areas with a focus on Myanmar and Afghanistan. Over the past two decades, TNI staff has worked extensively with local organisations and researchers to advocate for more inclusive, effective and humane approaches to drug related issues in these conflict situations, while analysing the links between drug use, production, and conflict and what these mean for efforts to promote peaceful and just societies. TNI also focuses on promoting the rights of local communities involved in the cultivation of crops declared illicit, and their involvement in drug policy making, the peace process and the design and implementation of development programmes.

    Land Policy in Colombia

    15 သြဂုတ်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    For years, TNI’s work in Colombia has largely focussed on how public policies and political processes have affected (rural) communities and their collective efforts to democratise access to land, water, and other natural resources. In doing so, TNI has collaborated with local organisations and researchers, while simultaneously building bridges between grassroots movements and policymakers at the national and international level.

  13. Peace Process in Colombia

    15 သြဂုတ်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    After more than four years of peace talks in Havana, the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) have taken important steps towards a definitive agreement to end the decades-long armed conflict in the country. This page provides some background information as well as TNI’s most recent analyses and advocacy work in relation with various social and economic issues that are essential factors in creating territorial peace in Colombia.

  14. UN Drug Control

    12 ဇူလိုင်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား
    The UN drug control system has been in place for more than half a century. Does it still serve its purpose or is reform of its legal and institutional architecture needed? There are many questions about outdated provisions, unintended consequences and tensions with today's UN norms in the fields of human rights, development, as well as peace and security. Find critical background and proposals for reform in this collection.
  15. Drug Law Reform

    12 ဇူလိုင်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    The TNI/CEDD (Colectivo de Estudios Drogas y Derecho / Research Consortium on Drugs and the Law ) Drug Law Reform Project promotes more effective and humane drug policies through analysis of existing drug control policies and by promoting dialogue among key stakeholders and decision-makers. The project is focused on Latin America and hopes to stimulate  reforms by pointing out good practices and lessons learned in areas such as proportionality of sentences, prison reform, and the status of the coca leaf in the international conventions.

    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    Transformative Cities is an opportunity for progressive local governments, municipalist coalitions, social movements and civil society organizations to popularize and share their experiences of tackling and finding solutions to our planet’s systemic economic, social, political and ecological crisis.

    The initiative draws on the emerging wave of transformative political practices taking place at municipal level worldwide, by launching a unique award process that will ensure that the lessons and inspiration of these cities becomes viral.

    Ecuadorian Citizens Commission on Investment Protection (CAITISA)

    20 မေလ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    The Ecuadorian Citizens’ Commission for a Comprehensive Audit of Investment Protection Treaties and of the International Arbitration System on Investments (CAITISA) was set up by the Ecuadorian goverment to audit the country's investment treaties and make recommendations to the government. 

    The commission was comprised of government officials, academics, lawyers and civil society groups, including the foremost expert on investment law, Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah and the former Attorney General for Argentina, Osvaldo Guglielmino. Our own TNI researcher Cecilia Olivet was nominated president.  

    In May 2017, the Commission's report was published and its recommendations to terminate the country's Bilateral Investment Treaties accepted by the government.

  18. The MOSAIC Project

    20 မတ်လ 2017
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    Climate change mitigation/adaptation and land grabbing are not necessarily isolated or separate phenomena. In many parts of the world such initiatives are hitting the ground in the same spaces and at the same time, often alongside environmental conservation programs as well. When they overlap and intersect, the results can be socially and politically explosive. In the transitional settings of Cambodia and Myanmar, old conflicts are being enflamed and new conflicts are being ignited, while customary ways of life and production systems are being branded as destructive or inefficient (or both) and ordinary villagers are being squeezed out.

    Using collaborative action research the MOSAIC project is working to strengthen understanding of these dynamics and build capacity for more effective state policies and grassroots action and interaction, for socially and environmentally just outcomes in the case study areas and beyond.

    Rethinking shrinking space

    12 ဒီဇင်ဘာလ အသုံးပြု စကားစု - လအမည် အပြည့်အစုံ 2016
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    Rising repression and restrictions for civil society organisations and social movements have put the issue of 'shrinking space' on the NGO agenda. TNI believes that “political space” for civil society is not ‘shrinking’, but rather being taken away, closed down and rendered uninhabitable by the same forces that have hollowed out democracy and placed it at the service of corporations and private interests. TNI is working with activists and academics to probe the issue critically.

    EU security policies

    25 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2016
    ေခါင္းစဥ္မ်ား

    The European Union has a common Security and Defence Policy that sets the agenda on border control and crisis management within the EU as well as how the union responds to global security challenges such as climate change. In addition, many of the EU member states are major military powers in their own right, home to some of the largest arms companies.
