EADI: No Development Without Freedom

EADI members and institutions herewith express their concern about the increasing restrictions imposed on scholars and the academic freedom as well as the freedom of speech in many countries, including within Europe.

We are shocked to witness the prosecution of those who practice democracy as an integral and substantial part of good governance and civil rights.

We will explore how best we can support those who as scholars are the victims of undemocratic, authoritarian rule and are prosecuted because of their democratic engagement.

We appeal to governments and academic institutions alike to provide space and shelter for scholars in need.

EADI member institutions are encouraged to collaborate in the efforts to accommodate those who are robbed of the means to continue their work.

The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talents” provides young scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups, opportunities for further collaboration may arise.

2017/02 – German Development Institute, Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE); Discussion Paper 5/2017; Author(s): Giulio Regeni, Georgeta Vidican Auktor - Details

In this Discussion Paper we join a growing number of scholars to argue that changing global conditions call for a revital is ation of the debate on the role of the state in social and economic transformation in the 21st century. We focus on three main global challenges for economic development in the 21st century: climate change and environmental degradation; increased digital is ation (the increasingly ‘bit-driven’ economy); and changed policy space for individual states as a result of globalisation.
