This research has been undertaken as part of the GEMM project, Growth, Equal Opportunities, Migration and Markets: www.gemm2020.eu. The paper presents results on the employment outcomes and types of jobs migrants, ethnic minorities and white British majority members do.
When we, as Māori (the Indigenous People of Aotearoa New Zealand), introduce ourselves, we locate ourselves in the land and the waters. These are genealogical as well as geographic links, with landscapes and ecosystems personified as ancestors and relations as well as recognized as resources and wealth.
Over the past decades, natural disasters have become more prevalent and destructive in terms of magnitudes, damage, and economic loss. Indonesia – the focus of my research – is located on a an actively moving tectonic plate making it vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity.
People in Puglia, a region in the south of Italy, are protesting against the building of the so-called TAP pipeline, which aims at bringing gas from Azerbaijan to Europe through Italy. They have expressed their dissent and concerns through protests, discussion meetings, buskers’ performances and concerts—all organised mostly in San Foca (right outside the construction site) and Melendugno.
The African Politics Conference Group (APCG) are hosting an online Colloquium which enables academics from the Global South, or researchers who study in the field of African Politics, to present papers-in-progress. This will create a vital opportunity for young scholars to receive feedback from, and work alongside leading academics in their fields of study.
During 2019, a bid is taking place to secure a grant that will enable researchers to collaborate on a project which draws materials and resources from several nations across the globe. Advancing Resilience and Innovation for Sustainable Ecosystems (ARISE) is a leading group of researchers from across the UK, Europe, Kenya and South Africa.
For 2 days, on the 3rd and 4th of March of 2019, the 1st Joint Workshop of BirZeit University and of the School of Economics and of Political Science of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will be held conducted in Ramallah.
There has long been a divide in the development and opportunities between the North and the Global South. For more information on the global south, please click here. Across the years it has become evident that major breakthroughs in research and science, power in politics, a wealth of economic stability and influential actors in many spheres have often come from affluent countries rather than those who rely on other communities for aid, and it is this marginalisation and lack of representation that GSAN aims to address.
For the last two weeks, organisations and climate leaders from around the globe have met to discuss the resounding issue of Climate Change, and how we can mitigate it. The Global Climate Action Summit called for a meeting of co-operators who were willing to commit to ensuring a climate-safe future for all. The GSAN blog below will address the humanitarian aspects of the summit and human impact into Cities and the Built Environment, Decarbonising Transportation Systems, and Inclusive Economic Growth.
The word ‘Sharia’ in Arabic means ‘the way’ or ‘the path’. It exists within the Islamic Religion as a sense of moral guidance according to the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet. However, the Sharia can often be misinterpreted, especially by western cultures who may perceive it as an old-fashioned notion, advocating practises such as the young age of female marriage in Middle Eastern cultures, stoning or lynching as punishment for crimes, and unequal rights and opportunities for men and women in these areas of the world.
The quotes below are from novels by prominent black writers, who have been recent Booker Prize winners, and have been discussed as part of Oprah Winfrey’s book club. It could be argued that these works of literature are part of Nelson Mandela’s legacy. Mandela was a pioneer in promoting equality during one of history’s most politically unstable time periods, South African apartheid.
When GSAN was first founded, the concept of establishing powerful links and creating networks in all areas of the world seemed like a remote possibility. In recent months however, it has become evident that governments and organisations are beginning to co-operate across a vast array of issues, to share research and achieve common goals. One prominent example is the recent trip to Nepal undertaken by Gina Yannitell Reinhardt, Alejandro Quiroz Flores, Dominik Duell, and Shovita Adhikari.
