Nicky Pouw of University of Amsterdam explains the most important results of the SHPIG project in a short video.

"We looked at two social protection policies: cash transfers to the poor and free social health insurance, in both Ghana and Kenya. We specifically looked at the interaction between the two policies. Many African governments are formalising their social support systems to fight poverty. This is highly political due to budget constrains and nepotism. How can these governments extend social protection through a more integrated and inclusive system?"

Getting published in a high-ranked journal helps to sharpen individual academic skills and can be very beneficial for a scientific career.

EADI’s new Journal Mentoring Programme (JUMP) in cooperation with the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR), seeks to empower young researchers from the global South to publish in the EJDR. During the EADI NORDIC conference in Bergen, Norway, the first ever group of JUMP mentees attended several workshops and met their mentors.

EADI members and institutions herewith express their concern about the increasing restrictions imposed on scholars and the academic freedom as well as the freedom of speech in many countries, including within Europe.

We are shocked to witness the prosecution of those who practice democracy as an integral and substantial part of good governance and civil rights.

We will explore how best we can support those who as scholars are the victims of undemocratic, authoritarian rule and are prosecuted because of their democratic engagement.

We appeal to governments and academic institutions alike to provide space and shelter for scholars in need.

EADI member institutions are encouraged to collaborate in the efforts to accommodate those who are robbed of the means to continue their work.

2017/08 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; IDS Bulletin; Author(s): Siri Eriksen et al. - Details

This IDS Bulletin is a call for increasing engagement between humanitarian aid and adaptation interventions to support deliberate transformation of development pathways. Based on studies from the ‘Courting Catastrophe’ project, contributors argue that humanitarian interventions offer opportunities for a common agenda to drive transformational adaptation. Changes in political and financial frameworks are needed to facilitate longer-term actions where demands move from delivering expert advice and solutions to vulnerable populations to taking up multiple vulnerability knowledges and making space for contestation of current development thinking.

2017/08 – Overseas Development Institute (ODI); Working and Discussion Papers; Author(s): Arabella Fraser, Amy Kirbyshire - Detials

Political institutions, formal or informal, embody the underlying rules and norms within which organisations such as governments, NGOs or companies, operate (North, 1990) and play a defining role in how people and organisations respond to climate-related shocks and stresses. Democratic relations between national and local government, for example, influence capacities for quick response in an emergency, and these responses can in turn affect economic prosperity, competitiveness, livelihoods and well-being. Governance provides us with a broad term for understanding the institutions working across the state, market and civil society. This working paper identifies an agenda for research and practice to create governance that can support human resilience to multiple shocks and stresses.
