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: No Development Without Freedom

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.

The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talents” provides young scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups, opportunities for further collaboration may arise.

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.

2017/03 – International Institute of Social Studies (ISS); Working Paper Series / General Series Vol.628; Author(s): Peter van Bergeijk - Details

This paper provides a comparative economic history perspective on two significant periods of deglobalization: the Great Depression in the 1930s and the period following the Financial Crisis of 2008/9. The paper discusses differences and similarities and provides empirical results regarding the correlates of deglobalization, including the political system (institutions), level of development (GDP per capita) and the share of manufacturing.
