    Who are the Davos class?

    15 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Infograph
    This infographic illustrates some dimensions about why we believe the World Economic Forum is fundamentally about increasing corporate profits and rewarding political elites rather than “improving the state of the world.” It is an undemocratic, unaccountable and illegitimate institution that, far from improving the world, has over decades reinforced the global crisis of inequality, poverty, and environmental destruction.
  2. A Quiet Revolution

    • Ari Rosmarin, Niamh Eastwood

    Report

    Many countries continue to incarcerate and criminalise people for possession or use of drugs, with criminalisation alone undermining employment, education and housing opportunities. In addition, many people who use drugs are often subject to human rights abuses by the state in jurisdictions which continue to criminalise them. The continued targeting of this group has not only a negative impact on the individuals in question, but their families and broader society as a whole. 

  3. No Women, No Peace: Gender Equality, Conflict and Peace in Myanmar

    13 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Policy briefing

    There has long been a need for a deeper understanding of the intersections of gender, ethnicity and other identities in peace-building and democratisation. Progress on the rights of women and the participation by women’s organisations in conflict resolution and national reform are vital if sustainable peace and democracy are to be built within the country.

    Cannabis in Indonesia

    • Dania Putri, Tom Blickman
    15 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Policy briefing

    Cannabis use has never posed major problems in Indonesia, yet prohibitionist policies prevail. Despite the high prevalence of cannabis use, local or national discussions on cannabis policies are nearly non-existent, exacerbated by strong anti-drug views and public institutions' failure to design and implement comprehensive policies based on evidence.

    Who does the World Economic Forum really represent?

    15 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Primer

    TNI takes a close look at the World Economic Forum’s Board to see who they represent, their economic interests and political beliefs. Might this be the future of global governance?

  6. Power in India: radical pathways

    • Ashish Kothari, Pallav Das
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    India has strongly entrenched power hierarchies that have historical roots but have also been exacerbated by inequalities and injustices that have deepened with economic globalisation. However grassroots political movements are emerging in India that could signal a gradual shift to direct or radical democracy, coupled with making representative democracy more accountable and ecologically sustainable

  7. Freedom technologists and the future of global justice

    • John Postill
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    In the wake of early 2010s upheavals such as the Arab Spring, Spain’s indignados, or the global Occupy movement, many commentators were quick to either invoke the presumed tech-savvy of ‘digital natives’ or the purported ‘cyber-utopianism’ of net freedom advocates who supported the protests. But what role have internet freedom activists – or ‘freedom technologists’ – played in ongoing struggles for progressive political change around the world and how can the pursuit of liberty be combined with the struggle for social justice?

  8. Democracy, power and sovereignty in today’s Europe

    • Nick Buxton, Yanis Varoufakis
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis argues that the nation-state is dead and democracy in the EU has been replaced by a toxic algorithmic depoliticisation that, if it is not confronted, will lead to depression, disintegration and possibly war. He calls for a launch of a pan-European movement to democratise Europe, to save it before it is too late.

  9. The open source city as the transnational democratic future

    • Bernardo Gutiérrez
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Experiences and experiments in Spain, Brazil, Istanbul and other cities suggest that a transnational municipalism, based on concepts of an open source city (free online tools and active citizen participation), has the potential to regenerate democracy and build a geopolitics of the commons against neoliberalism.

  10. Precarity, power and democracy

    • Tom George
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    The increasingly precarious nature of work and life poses a serious threat to democracy as it undermines our social fabric, atomizes individuals and seeks to personalize blame for economic insecurity. What potential is there for ‘the precariat’ to become a new kind of social movement with a collective vision to reimagine contemporary life?

    • Hilary Wainwright
    18 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Building a real democracy in the face of corporate and financial power will require a rethinking of power and agency, unleashing the creative, experimental, knowledge-sharing and emancipatory approaches of social movements.

    The global post-democratic order

    • Leigh Phillips
    19 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    In the era of globalisation, the steady removal of decision-making from democratic chambers by EU elites is serving as a blueprint for post-democratic governance around the world. Progressives must be ambitious and start putting forward ideas for a democratic world government as a viable alternative.

    Economics as ideology: challenging expert political power

    • Elaine Coburn
    19 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Economics often appears boring, but this narrow, mostly male dominated profession decides on matters intimately bound up with questions of power, democracy and vital matters of health, education, social welfare and the environment. Meaningful democracy requires the participation of ordinary people in economic debates, so that they can shape their own lives in solidarity with others.

    The tyranny of global finance

    • Walden Bello
    19 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Against all expectations, financial capital has emerged even stronger after the financial crisis having staved off regulation and putting the blame on public spending. But its victory is likely a pyrrhic one as a new crisis looms, one in which the global public could learn from victories such as reforms in Iceland and finally reassert its control over money.

    To change the heart and soul

    • Herbert Docena
    19 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2016
    Report

    Corporate executives and climate skeptics that mobilise against strong international climate change agreements have rightly been the focus of attention of many people concerned about the climate crisis. But another group of elites—those who actually believe in climate change —may paradoxically have done more to block effective solutions to the crisis.

    Paper

    Changes in the economy economy in terms of growing flows of energy and materials are leading to the existence of a rural and urban global movement for environmental justice.  And not only complaints, there are also many successful examples of stopping projects and developing alternatives.

    • Mariam Morid
    04 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2016
    Paper

    In light of the April 2016 United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS), a change of the global order on drug policy should be made. Any outcome of UNGASS  will have essential developmental impacts on Afghanistan’s economy and especially on those involved in the agricultural production side of the opium economy that is farmers and farm-workers.

     

  20. The Privatising Industry in Europe

    17 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2016
    Policy issue

    Privatisations of state-owned assets have become a central plank of EU/Troika agreements with debtor nations such as Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Portugal, but there has been little examination of their track record nor an examination of who really benefits. This report puts a spotlight on the legal and financial corporate giants making millions out of the new wave of privatisations across Europe.
