Avec Hélène Roux: Fondée sur l’étude de divers conflits socio-environnementaux (barrages hydroélectriques ; complexes touristiques ; extraction minière ou programmes de conservation), la présentation porte sur le décalage entre les orientations liées au développement provenant « du haut » (les institutions supranationales, les États nationaux) et les aspirations provenant « du bas » (les populations concernées).

Solidarity, Peace, and Social Justice - EADI/ISS Conference, online, 5-8 July 2021

The central theme of the conference is “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”. Together, these three concepts represent our aspirations for approaches to global development that address inequality, poverty and political marginalisation, also in connection with climate change and other environmental threats. Solidarity is essential for any process of social change. Based on mutually shared interests and human values, solidarity can be extremely powerful yet can also be easily undermined in an era of fake news and (electronically) manipulated elections. Peace and social justice are similarly important values in (as well as aspired outcomes of) struggles or transformation processes in which solidarity is key.

With Eileen Kuttab

This lecture will briefly describe the Israeli colonial project of dispossession and de-development on occupied Palestine, followed by a discussion on the emerging Palestinian Authority (PA) and its impact on the economy through a gender lens.

Development choices have been governed by different objectives, namely stabilization of the peace process, control of the Israeli economy over the territories and the mainstreaming of neoliberal economics, resulting in multi-faceted socio-economic deteriorations.

El objetivo de esta presentación es revisar críticamente el papel de la libertad como determinante del bienestar subjetivo a lo largo del proceso de desarrollo humano, entendido en el sentido sociológico de la teoría postmaterialista de la modernización y sus implicaciones para los estudios del desarrollo.

18 Feb 2021

With Madhura Swaminathan

This lecture traces the trajectory of growth of Indian agriculture over the last 5 decades. From the mid 1960s through the 1980s, rapid growth in production and productivity of food grain, rice and wheat, in particular, resulted in big gains in output and reduced dependence on imports to meet domestic consumption requirements. The trajectory has been more uneven in the 1990s and after. The lecture argues that there are huge problems that beset agrarian India, arising out of inequalities across crops, regions and classes.
