EADI eNewsletter #1/2 2022 I New Narratives, Energy, Many Calls & More

Welcome to the fortnightly newsletter of the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI).
2nd Issue January 2022
Today we can offer you some insights on actively changing narratives to foster civic engagement, a video talk on uncooperative local elites in Burundi, and a new issue of our journal, the EJDR. And as usual, our member community has been quite active, not only with many new publications and events, but also as advocates for a Solar Geoengineering Non-Use Agreement. Our publications picks are all around energy today, and we also recommend an open access book on the takeover of multilateralism by global corporate power. Apart from that, there are quite many calls around these days, have a look!
From our Blog: Changing Narratives for Solidarity
Hope, Play, Relate: Changing narratives for greater solidarity and open civic space »In our work to strengthen and support civic space worldwide,we often see that certain narratives are used to undermine the work of activists towards social change. Narratives are like layered currents. Sometimes only a part of the narrative is visible, the tip of the iceberg, but beneath the surface it is connected to deeply held and shared social norms and values, history and culture which are often invisible and difficult to melt down. » At the recent EADI/ISS conference, the authors of our latest blog have collected inspiring practical examples how to change such narratives.

Scientists Take Position Against Solar Geoengineering
A global coalition of over 60 senior climate scientists and governance scholars have launched a global initiative calling for an International Non-Use Agreement on Solar Geoengineering. They argue that deployment of solar geoengineering – speculative technologies that aim to lower global temperatures by artificially intervening in our climate systems – cannot be fairly governed globally and poses an unacceptable risk if implemented as a future climate policy option. Read more and sign the open letter.
