Editorial

Today we are very excited to launch our blog "Debating Development Research". With this initiative we hope to trigger discussions, share insights and connect people around topics of interest to the international development research community. We cordially invite you to contribute your experience, thoughts or positions to this new platform, as any blog can only be as good as the input it receives. At the same time we are happy about the large interest in our upcoming research communications workshop on 15 and 16 November which will be a good opportunity to connect and share experience. If you work in communications and haven't registered yet, please let us know, so that we can still accommodate you. Enjoy the read!
 
EADI Blog "Debating Development Research" launched

The world is facing dramatic changes and challenges and so is science. What is the role of development research in these times and what are the most pressing issues it needs to address? What are different just positions on these issues, where are open questions and what requires further elaboration? What makes sense in relation to the larger picture and where do scientists need to take a stand? On this blog we invite you to share your opinion, thoughts and insights on everything that might be of interest to the broader community – and of course also on articles that appear on our blog. For a start, we have highlighted the Knowledge Development Goals, asking which knowledge for which development? Read more

Bridge 47 - The Power of Global Citizenship Education
“To change everything, you need everybody!” Maya Menezes from the Canadian Leap Manifesto encouraged the participants of the first Bridge 47 Conference to primarily reach out beyond their traditional allies. This is exactly what the Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship project is about. It seeks to mobilise and empower global civil society to contribute to a transformation towards global justice and eradication of poverty by means Global Citizenship Education (GCE). EADI is proud to be partner of the project which is co-created and implemented by 15 European and global civil society organisations. EADI takes the leading role in the work on Knowledge Exchange Partnerships which serve to ensure a free flow of ideas and best practices for Global Citizenship Education between research institutions and civil society organisations.

Highlight
This report published by the Transnational Institute includes a collection of case studies illustrating how corporate impunity works and highlighting the failures of current approaches, particularly to address human rights violations and provide effective remedy to affected peoples and communities. The studies reveal a pattern where European corporations outsource their worst impacts to the Global South, with the help of the architecture of impunity that legitimises and legalises the operations of Transnational Corporation (TNCs). At the core of this architecture is the infamous investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system, a private arbitration system that allows TNCs to sue states whenever they consider that their future profits are threatened by new measures or policies aiming at improving social and environmental protection.

New Working Group on Gender Justice
Call for participation: The newly constituted Working Group on Gender Justice is inviting collaborators from all disciplines. 

The Gender Justice Working Group of EADI is a group of scholars working, writing and thinking on all issues related to gender justice. We feel that a shift from gender mainstreaming to gender justice in international development theory, policy and practice contexts is a worthwhile point of departure for discussion and focus.  Therefore, we are opening this space/ initiative as a forum for scholars and researchers with an interest in the relationship between gender justice and international development. Read more and get in touch.
