    22 September 2021
    Report

    This report examines the intersections between Covid-19 and food systems across the North African region. It looks at how the dominant ‘food security’ paradigm increased vulnerability to the economic dislocation wrought by the pandemic. It examines the impacts of Covid-19, particularly on (rural) working people and small-scale food producers and how governments across the region responded to these challenges. Finally, it offers a pathway out of this moment of crisis rooted in models of food sovereignty and economic justice.

    • Apostolis Fotiadis, Niamh Ni Bhriain
    28 July 2021

    The nexus between the arms trade and forced displacement is rarely explored and the role of European arms trade policies that facilitate gross human rights violations in third countries is often absent from displacement and migration studies.

    Report

    O regime de arbitragem de investimentos tem atraído muitas críticas nos últimos anos. Mas um aspecto pouco debatido é sobre como esse regime solapa o poder judiciário e as decisões tomadas pelos juízes locais. Este relatório mostra a experiência latino-americana e apresenta cinco cenários para evidenciar que as reivindicações investidor-Estado e os árbitros que decidem sobre elas enfraquecem o poder judiciário.

    Report

    The investment arbitration regime has drawn enormous criticism in recent years. But a little-explored aspect is how this regime undermines the judiciary and the decisions made by national judges.

  11. Raíces de resiliencia

    20 April 2021
    Report

    La política de tierras – es decir, quién controla qué tierra, cómo se utiliza, durante cuánto tiempo, con qué fines y en beneficio de quién - es un pilar central de este debate. Mientras los políticos de toda Europa se esfuerzan por encontrar un equilibrio entre la necesidad urgente de actuar contra el cambio climático con la necesidad de reforzar la equidad y el apoyo popular a las nuevas políticas, el riesgo de conflicto social se cierne sobre la sociedad. Se trata de un riesgo alimentado por las protestas de los agricultores, la percepción pública del «agri-bashing» y las tensiones de larga duración entre los movimientos conservacionistas y las comunidades agrícolas. Esto se ha vuelto más complejo debido a la interconexión de las cuestiones de la tierra y la identidad nacional, y por la aparente desconexión cada vez mayor entre quienes viven en las zonas rurales y urbanas.

    • Mark Akkerman
    14 April 2021
    Policy briefing

    This report seeks to join the dots between Europe’s outsourcing of migrant detention to third countries and the notoriously poor conditions in those migrant detention centres. Europe calls the shots on migrant detention beyond its shores but is rarely held to account for the deeply oppressive consequences, including arbitrary detention, torture, forced disappearance, violence, sexual violence, and death.

    • Fabian Flues, Pia Eberhardt, Cecilia Olivet
    10 March 2021
    Report

    En los últimos meses ha aumentado la preocupación hacia el Tratado sobre la Carta de la Energía (TCE) por el peligro que supone para las acciones climáticas urgentes, y cada vez se unen más voces contra el tratado, pero los que se benefician de él también han incrementado su propaganda, promoviendo una serie de mensajes falsos sobre cómo el TCE atrae las inversiones limpias y cómo su "modernización" solucionará cualquier defecto. Desmonta su retórica con nuestra nueva guía para derribar los mitos del TCE.

  16. Roots of Resilience

    24 February 2021
    Report

    Land politics – who controls what land, how is it used, for how long, for what purposes and to whose benefit – is a central pillar of this debate. As politicians across Europe struggle to balance the urgent need for climate action with the need to strengthen equity and popular support for new policies, the risk of societal discord looms large, fuelled by farmer protests, perceptions of ‘agri-bashing,’ and long-running tensions between conservation movements and agricultural communities. This has been made more complicated by the interweaving of questions of land and national identity and an apparently increasing disconnect between those living in rural and urban areas.

    Policy briefing

    This briefing profiles the leading US border security contractors, their related financial campaign contributions during the 2020 elections, and how they have shaped a bipartisan approach in favor of border militarization for more than three decades. It suggests that a real change in border and immigration policies will require the Democrats to break with the industry that helps finance them.

    • Todd Miller, Nick Buxton
    17 February 2021
    Policy briefing

    El presente informe examina las principales contratistas de seguridad de fronteras de Estados Unidos, sus contribuciones financieras durante las elecciones en 2020, y el modo en que han configurado un enfoque bipartidista a favor de la militarización de las fronteras durante más de 30 años. El informe sugiere que para lograr un verdadero cambio en las políticas de fronteras e inmigración los demócratas deberán romper con la industria que ayuda a financiarlas.

  19. The 2020 General Election in Myanmar: A Time for Ethnic Reflection

    22 December 2020
    Policy briefing

    The 2020 general election was one of disappointment for ethnic nationality parties in Myanmar. Prior to the polls, expectations were high that they would win a larger number of seats than in previous elections. In the event, the National League for Democracy won another landslide victory. NLD gains were largely at the expense of the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party. The position of ethnic parties, in contrast, will remain relatively the same.
