This study seeks to analyse the perceived impacts on food security and poverty reduction of the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme in Burkina Faso. Besides positive impacts on people’s food security and poverty reduction, the beneficiaries also emphasised the social effects of the project activities, which led to an improvement of the social cohesion, mutual help and support in the villages.

Mobility of Labour versus Capital: A Global Governance Perspective (Global Trends. Analysis 01/2019)
Rosewarne, Stuart / Piper, Nicola

The mobility of people can engender positive effects for global economic development. Yet, migration has not been backed by an internationally-endorsed governance architecture as was the case with the liberalisation of international trade or finance. The challenge lies in advancing the development promise of international migration and reconciling it with the integrity of national sovereignty without compromising human rights.

In the latest issue of GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS Stuart Rosewarne and Nicola Piper characterise this challenge as the securitisation-liberalisation paradox wich also reveals itself in the UN’s Global Compacts on Refugees and Migration. The authors advocate a broader focus on migration, including a better understanding of its various forms, and a rights-based approach in migration governance.

The Global Refugee Crisis: Towards a just response (Global Trends. Analysis 03/2018)
B.S. Chimni

With their effort to keep refugees and migrants out of their territories, Western nations abdicate their historical and political responsibility, according to the analysis of the renowned Indian migration researcher B.S. Chimni in the latest issue of GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS. And what is more: by leaving it to the poor and poorest countries in the world to deal with the growing number of refugees, they allow new crises to emerge.

Chimni therefore calls for a just response from the international community to the global refugee crisis. Such a response could only consist of a multipronged and multidimensional strategy that has to be worked out in a genuine dialogue between all stakeholders taking into account all relevant economic and political factors.

It thus follows on from GLOBAL TRENDS, published from 1991 to 2015.
