  1. Multistakeholderism

    31 March 2021
    Topic

    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.

    How do we recover the emancipatory potential of technological change and bring it back under popular democratic control? As part of its Future Labs work, TNI is working with IT for Change to deepen our analysis and research on the impacts of rapid technological change in all of our areas of work. In 2021, TNI launched a series of essays in conjunction with ROAR magazine to stimulate debate and reflection.

    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

    Topic

    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 January 2020
    Topic

    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.

    Topic

    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 April 2018
    Topic

    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 April 2018
    Topic

    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.
