2020/02 – United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD); Occasional Paper 4; Author(s): Gabriele Köhler

Citizens, activists and analysts around the world are alarmed by ever-increasing political, social, economic and climate inequalities and intensifying obstacles vis-à-vis the promises of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In many places, policy retrogression is undermining transformation towards economic, social and climate justice. Many of the growing fractures have their roots in the structures and trends of the economic system that prevails at national and global levels, and the social contract of democratic welfare statism is under threat. However, hitherto siloed activist communities are coalescing in the form of “creative” coalitions. This paper discusses their commonalities, strengths and shortcomings, and asks whether these creative coalitions could counter the power of economic interests and retrogressive government policies.

2020/01 – African Studies Centre (ASC); open access book; Author(s): Anika Altaf

While the inclusion of extreme poor people is a noble and necessary objective, it is challenging. This book provides deeper understanding of the mechanisms of in- and exclusion of extreme poor people, the structural causes of extreme poverty and the desirability of a univocal definition of extreme poverty. The book contributes to such an understanding through an analysis of extreme poor and marginalised people and their multiple dimensions of wellbeing.
