Ethics and justice are central to development issues, but at present, there are no dedicated ethical guidelines for development research. The DSA 2019 Conference "Opening up Development" (Milton Keynes, 19-21 June) is a good oopportunity to start changing this. EADI and DSA are jointly committed to producing such guidelines, and this panel will feed into that process. We look forward to receiving interesting contributions! Sessions will be interactive and participatory.

The Most Detailed Picture to Date of the World’s Poorest People presents the global MPI 2018, a newly revised index based on a short but powerful list of 10 deprivations. It now covers 105 countries in total, which are home to 77 per cent of the world’s population, or 5.7 billion people. Key findings are:

  • 1.3 billion people live in multidimensional poverty.
  • 83% of all multidimensionally poor people in the world live in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
  • Two-thirds of all MPI poor people live in middle-income countries.
  • Half of the multidimensionally poor are children aged 0-17.
  • 85% of MPI poor people live in rural areas.
  • 46% of those who are multidimensionally poor live in severe poverty.
  • In 2015/16, more than 364 million people are still MPI poor in India.
  • In India, 271 million people moved out of poverty in ten years.

2018/11 – United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD); research paper; Author(s) The Just Transition Research Collaborative

Just Transition — the idea that justice and equity must form an integral part of the transition towards a low-carbon world — is increasingly being mobilized both to counter the idea that protecting the environment and protecting jobs are incompatible, and to broaden the debate to justice-related issues such as the kinds of jobs and societies we envision for the future. This report unpacks the different understandings, narratives and framings of Just Transition that underpin the concept’s growing popularity and uptake. Six short country case studies provide insights into how Just Transition is—or is not—being mobilized on the ground. The report calls for a progressive interpretation of Just Transition to promote transformative change and climate justice for all.

In the proposal for its next budget (2021-2027), the European Commission envisages a major restructuring of its external action architecture that reflects the EU’s ambition to pursue a more strategic, political and interest-driven external action. It includes the creation of a ‘Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument’ (NDICI) worth €89.2 billion, and of global scope. Up to 75% of funds are intended for political cooperation with partner countries and regions. This discussion paper by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) is an initial analysis of how the EU institutions are currently preparing for the next bilateral programming process. While there have been a number of encouraging developments, some potential policy-to-practice gaps need to be addressed early in the...
