Editorial

Today we would like to give you a glimpse on what we are planning for the rest of the year, apart from the large EADI/ISS 2020 Conference: in May we will be hosting our first practical workshop on scientific paper writing. In September, we will have our second workshop for academic coordinators of Development Studies programmes, followed by our third research communcations workshop in November. We will announce the exact dates of the events as soon as possible, so please watch this space! Not to forget our open call on Development Studies and Degrowth which will close soon, and next week's webinar "Rights and Accountability in ‘Making’ and ‘Shaping’ Social Protection" - and the usual pick of news, resources and opportunities further below.
New on our Blog: Civil Society in Difficult Settings
In the light of shrinking civic spaces and strong legacies of authoritarianism, violence and repression in many countries of the world, approaches that are drawn from countries with relatively open democratic spaces no longer hold true: a recent CIVICUS report "found that 40% of the world’s population live in repressed settings, and that in fact only 3% of the world’s population live in settings which are ‘open’ – those plural and stable democracies from which so much of our development thinking seems to evolve." In "Rethinking Empowerment and Accountability in ‘Difficult Settings’", John Gaventa summerizes eight main messages from an extensive IDS research programme  Read the post
Highlight: Creative Coalitions in a Fractured World
Citizens, activists and analysts around the world are alarmed by ever-increasing political, social, economic and climate inequalities and intensifying obstacles vis-à-vis the promises of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In many places, policy retrogression is undermining transformation towards economic, social and climate justice. Many of the growing fractures have their roots in the structures and trends of the economic system that prevails at national and global levels, and the social contract of democratic welfare statism is under threat. However, hitherto siloed activist communities are coalescing in the form of “creative” coalitions. This paper
by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) discusses their commonalities, strengths and shortcomings, and asks whether these creative coalitions could counter the power of economic interests and retrogressive government policies. Read more
Resource: Guidelines to Conflict Sensitive Research
Doing research in conflict contexts is crucial. But how do you best conduct research – in all disciplines – in conflict-affected contexts? These guidelines, developed co-developed by the Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE) are designed for all levels of researchers – from research student to professor – who conduct research in settings that are conflict-affected. These guidelines take you through 9 steps of a research cycle and point your attention to critical and sensitive aspects of research in and on conflict. Read more
