    Azerbaijan has set the course for the economy to reduce its dependence on oil by promoting new drivers of growth. This publication emphasizes the need for diversification, particularly in the agriculture, tourism, and manufacturing sectors. By 2025, under the Strategic Roads Maps of the Government of Azerbaijan, a more diversified economy should take shape led by these three sectors. Bold reforms need to strengthen areas of the economy that could otherwise impede this transition, and policy makers must resolutely stay on the reform path.

    South America, Brazil

    O objetivo do artigo é compreender o período entre 1822 e 1850 como um momento da história brasileira em que se instituiu simultaneamente a absolutização da propriedade privada da terra e a legalização jurídica da grilagem de terra. O processo de monopolização das terras brasileiras que se realizou na primeira metade do século XIX reproduziu a grilagem como forma e conteúdo central da formação territorial do Brasil.

    November, 2020

    Os territórios indígenas (TIs) são fundamentais para o equilíbrio do clima do planeta. No entanto, os efeitos das mudanças climáticas – em consequência de ações antrópicas – já são perceptíveis nos modos de vida dos povos originários. Nesse contexto, à luz da perspectiva ecológica da comunicação, o artigo objetiva demonstrar como o processo de digitalização dos territórios, por meio do uso do celular, favorece uma comunicação ampliada e participativa visando maior controle sobre os ecossistemas.

    This report seeks to investigate and propose mechanisms that can be used to improve the flow of benefits to mining-affected communities. The report sets out what requirements should be met for a community trust (or similar legal vehicle) to offer protection of trust assets. It sets out recommendations on the manner in which the legal document should be crafted to protect communities, and proposes that the time is ripe for regulation and clarity. Although it is focused on South Africa, it will be relevant for countries facing similar challenges in the mining and other commercial sectors.

    Empowerment is the “expansion of people’s ability to make strategic life choices”. According to the UN, women’s empowerment has five components: women’s sense of self-worth; their right to have and to determine choices; their right to have access to opportunities and resources; their right to have the power to control their own lives, both within and outside the home; and their ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally.
