Since last June, I have been part of a research team together with Isabel Ortiz ( @isabel__ortiz ), Sara Burke and Mohamed Berrada. Our research has focused on the analysis of world protests from 2006 to 2013 in a joint project by the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung NY Office.
Aquests tres últims dies no he pogut escriure, ni llegir res pràcticament res. Les nombroses reunions ja programades i sense programar, la revisió de l’outcome document de la Cimera i, sobretot, les activitats que des del Fòrum UBUNTU hem organitzat i que val la pena dir-ho han estat un èxit, no m’han permès postejar al blog. Vaig a intentar fer un breu resum del que ha ocorregut durant aquests tres intensos dies per Rio de Janeiro.
This week I will attend a seminar in Brussels organized by the civil society platform Beyond 2015. It is a global civil society campaign pushing for a strong and legitimate successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals. The seminar will meet hundreds of civil society representatives from all around the world during two days discussing and thinking on several issues related with how this new framework has to be build. There will be several workshops focused on more concrete topics and one of them is about “governance”. The organizers asked me (as UBUNTU) to prepare some ideas in order to organize the debate. And here you have the result. This document would have been impossible without the help of Blanca.
