Editorial

Our webinar schedule continues to grow and we hope that we can provide you with interesting online-offers throughout the summer - in our own webinar series as well as the joint EADI/ISS "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" series. And we are happy to announce the dates for this year's research communications workshop, which will be held on 5 and 6 November, either here in Bonn or online - we keep both options open. As our members continue to publish around COVID19-related issues, we continue to collect these publications here. And please don't forget that our vacancy announcement for a Senior Executive is still open until the end of the week! As usual please find further news, publication picks, vacancies and webinars below
New on our Blog: Better Conditions for Southern Researchers
Researchers must improve the working conditions for local collaborators: "The current global architecture of development research projects often operates at a three-tier level, with researchers in the Global North, elites in the Global South and local researchers." The power hierarchy between these levels, Ananya Chakraborty and Lennart Kaplan from the German Development Institute (DIE) argue, " may result in unsafe and dangerous working conditions and undermine the Sustainable Development Goal for decent work (SDG 8)". Therefore, they call for a paradigm change in the way research projects are structured. Read the post

Latest EADI/ISS Webinar on 22 June
This is the second "Work in progress" webinar by our "EU as Development Actor" Working Group. The discussion centres around the paper "China, the EU, and Western aid norms. A case study on Ethiopia": "The aim of this proposal is to explore these questions through the particular case of a ‘development encounter’ between China and the community of Western traditional donors, with a focus on EU donors. We have chosen Ethiopia for this encounter: an aid darling with a strong presence of China in aid as well as in other fields and a varied presence of traditional donors."  The aim of this seminar is to provide an arena for early career or PhD students to receive feedback on their work. The cancellation of various conferences has deprived them of this important feedback element. Read more and register

Featured Open Access Books
An e-book based on ‘most impactful’ Open University research into drug manufacture in Africa, has become one of publisher Palgrave Macmillan’s top five open access downloads of all time. Freely available on the publisher’s website, the e-book had clocked up 69,000 downloads as of 4 June.

Contributors to the book include practitioners as well as researchers, and the majority are from Africa or the global South. The book originated from a study led by Professor Maureen Mackintosh of the Centre for Innovation, Knowledge and Development (IKD) into the supply chains of essential medicines to the Kenyan and Tanzanian health systems.

This new handbook by the Transnational Institute is an indispensable guide to climate activists and policy-makers alike towards a complete overhaul of the financial system to stop climate chaos. Central to its message is that fossil fuel lending can be redirected towards green energy and that public finance and ownership can bankroll and provide the infrastructure for delivering a Green New Deal.
The book presents many progressive proposals to build a just and future-proof financial system that can respond to the climate crisis, assess their potential impact, achievability and any associated drawbacks. Read more
