EADI eNewsletter #11/2 I Green Bonds, Degrowth, Taxation & More

2nd Issue November 2021
Editorial
As 2021 is coming to a close, we wrap up our series of activities this year with our fourth development research communications workshop taking place today, and our third workshop for coordinators of Development Studies programmes next week. If you’re interested in green finance mechanisms, we strongly recommend watching our latest virtual dialogue which critically discusses the expansion of green bonds to the South. Today’s blog sheds the light on ways to decolonise the university, and our thematic focus is on tax and taxation, together with a special issue on degrowth. And, as usual, we’ve put together publication picks, calls, vacancies and blogs further below.
From our Blog: Decolonising the University
Decolonising the university: between hope and necessity »Where they are indeed part of the institution, women and ethnicised individuals within the institution are often considered “exotic tokens” to showcase the university’s diversity », writes Gaya Raddadi in our latest blog post: « they suddenly also become natural experts on their identity issue-area and are subject to intellectual casting. They are also subject to a rigid control of their lived spatiality: their physical appearances, their tone of voice, etc. » Therefore, she calls for an « active engagement in creating inclusive, anti-racist, anti-sexist spaces is taken alongside “diversity and inclusion” agendas. » Read the post

Latest EADI Virtual Dialogue: Green Bonds in the South
If you haven’t had the chance to attend our latest virtual dialogue, watch it now on our YouTube channel: Tomaso Ferrando from the Institute of Development Policy (IOB) provides a multi-disciplinary and critical overview of green bonds as socio-legal financial constructions that risk to reproduce historical patterns on uneven development and crystallize a vision of the South as a spatial and temporal fix for systemic problems mainly produced in the North. Watch the video

Systemic action for refugeesOn 6 December, 15.00-17.00, the ISS invites you to its second Research InSightS (hybrid) live event on « Seeking systemic action for refugees and migrants« . The focus of this event will be on systemic action for the protection of the most vulnerable, whether refugees in camps, migrants on the move, or (undocumented) migrants closer to home. We will look at this issue from several perspectives and roles: civil society, policy and research. How can these different actors contribute to more durable solutions for people on the move?

Highlight: Special Issue on Degrowth
Under the theme ‘Caring Communities for Radical Change’, the 8th International Degrowth Conference brought together nearly 900 activists, academics and artists at ISS to discuss how to confront the contradictions between endless economic growth and the ecological boundaries of our planet. The latest DevISSues, a regular ISS publication, summarises some of the discussions, such as bringing together degrowth and decoloniality and green new deals beyond growth. Read more
