Editorial

In our last newsletter this year, we would like to let you know that we have extended the call for abstracts for the 2020 EADI/ISS Conference until 6 January. This also provides a good opportunity for scholars from the Global South who wish to participate in our JUMP Mentoring Programme to submit a corresponding abstract.
Moreover, we've got two new blog posts in our "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" series, and some good news from the Bridge 47 Project, apart from the usual pick of member publications, news, calls and vacancies. Today's thematic focus is on food and agriculture. We've also got a regional focus, this time on the Middle East. And of course, we wish you a joyful festive season and hope to see you again in the New Year!
New on our Blog
In this post, Dirk Jan Koch and Marloes Verholt explore the unintended social effects of climate projects and describe a surprising observation: that the intrinsic motivation of involved people declines when monetary rewards are offered. Unfortunately, this "goes against the very ideological basis of the "payment for environmental services (PES)" approach". If you are interested in critical research around REDD+ projects - "the  holy grails of international efforts to combat climate change for the past 10 years" - read this post and/or submit an abstract to the related conference panel..            To the post
How to make sense of EU Development and the "new" focus on International Partnerships? Sarah Delputte and Simon Lightfoot present Three ways of looking at the EU’s Development Policy, the third one being the most controversial: "From this point of view, the EU’s development policy contributes to the reproduction of structural patterns of exploitation and power asymmetries. Consequently, talking about ‘partnerships’ via development policy without tackling the underlying structural injustices, does not herald any structural change". The authors invite abstract to two conference panels: more information in the post.

Bridge 47: Building Successful Knowledge Partnerships
Taking stock of our role in the Bridge 47 project on Building Global Citizenship Education halfway through, we are proud of the regional academic knowledge partnerships we were able to create so far. The latest event in this context took place in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, at the 8th Congress on University and Development:
This is the main forum in Spain and Portugal to discuss the contributions of academics to development cooperation in the Iberian region: "There are people here in Spain and in Portugal that have been working on GCE for more than 20 or 30 years. So I think that this is an opportunity to share our knowledge, our findings, our experience as well with other people across Europe.” Read more
If you'd like to further explore the opportunities of Global Citizenship Education, Bridge 47 has already built a growing library of  resources which is available online. If you've got some time to spare over the festive season, we particularly recommend to watch the recent webinar on developing Global Citizenship Education partnerships with a broad range of stakeholders including private sector, parliamentarians, government entities, academia and more.

Highlight: The SDGs and Human Rights
This open access book by today's featured EADI Member IEE analyses the interplay of sustainable development and human rights from different perspectives including fight against poverty, health, gender equality, working conditions, climate change and the role of private actors. Each aspect is addressed from a more human rights-focused angle and a development-policy angle. This allows comparisons between the different approaches but also seeks to close gaps which would remain if only one perspective would be at the centre of the discussions. Read more
