My (Barbara)’s fascination and interest for the issue of civic space started in Indonesia. Local organisations struggled with the introduction of a vaguely framed law for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), warning them not to work on issues going against ‘’Indonesian’’ values. A few years later I found myself supporting initiatives in more than 15 countries spread across the globe, struggling with shifting and shrinking civic space.

30 Mar 2020

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has forced EADI and ISS to postpone their joint conference planned for late June/early July (in The Hague) to next year (5-8 July 2021).

This implies that the Development Dialogue (PhD conference) as well as other events linked to the EADI-ISS conference also will be postponed to next year. The unanimous decision by EADI and ISS also was driven by the conviction to leave no-one behind: especially the Global South is hit hard by the current crisis. The EADI-ISS Conference Team is convinced all preparations and lessons of the past years will contribute to an even more successful and inspiring event in 2021.

By Iliana Olivié and Aitor Pérez EADI/ISS Blog Series

The economic, social and political crises that have erupted in Europe in the last decade might be shifting the academic debate on the drivers of aid from the more traditional selfish vs. solidary divide to a -somehow related- new divide on Nationalism vs. Liberalism-Cosmopolitanism. Recent examples are the Brexit process, or the rise of populist movements in Europe.
