We know our wounds: National and local organisations involved in humanitarian response in Lebanon (ALNAP Country Study 2016)
Humanitarian Lebanon PUBLICATION
C4D Network Editor
September 17, 2017
0

This research reflects the understanding, perceptions, motivation and experiences of 11 national and local organisations in Lebanon that are active and involved in humanitarian response. It is based on a desire to hear what they have to say in their own terms.

Using and adapting Grounded Theory for data collection and analysis, ALNAP conducted intensive interviews with the organisations, without applying a preconceived hypothesis to validate or refute and without pre-established questionnaires and assumptions as to who these organisations are, how they work and what they should be achieving. The aim of the research was to pose one question to research participants and actively listen to their answers: What are your experiences, motivations, practices and engagement in humanitarian response in Lebanon?

More than 300 pages of transcripts from interviews were analysed and coded line by line, to let the interviewees’ concepts, understandings and meanings emerge.

This report does not claim to represent the wide diversity of Lebanese civil society. Rather, it delves into understanding how these organisations conceive and implement actions and processes to support individuals and population affected by conflict, inequality, exclusion, discrimination, displacement and violence in Lebanon,showing common patterns and trends that have resonance among the organisations interviewed. Additional country profiling and contextual interviews with national coordination bodies and local think-tanks informed and triangulated the research.

Call for contributions: Gender & Development Journal – ‘ICT through a lens of gender equality and women’s rights’ (deadline: 30 September 2017)
Gender Information Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) News
C4D Network Editor
September 17, 2017
0

In July 2018, the international journal Gender & Development will examine the theme of information and communication technology (ICTs), through the lens of gender equality and women’s rights.

G&D is a unique journal, producing content on three themes each year – in March, July and November – to inform and influence development policymakers, practitioners and researchers about placing women’s rights and gender equality at the centre of their work. It is published for Oxfam by Routledge/Taylor and Francis. G&D provides a forum for the sharing of innovation, good practices and lessons learned from researchers, policymakers, development practitioners and feminist activists, particularly offering space to those from the global South. For more information, visit www.genderanddevelopment.org.

The rapidly-evolving digital landscape is radically transforming the way people around the world access information and services, offering immense potential to individuals, groups and communities for poverty eradication and empowerment, creating new routes for learning, earning, and political activism. SDG 5 recognises the particular empowerment potential of ICTs for gender justice, aiming to ‘Enhance the use of ICT to promote the empowerment of women’.

This issue of Gender & Development will take a feminist analysis of new, exciting realities, emphasising that technologies themselves are not neutral, offering potential for both positive and negative applications and impact. It will feature grounded case studies from different global South contexts of activism using ICTs for gender equality and the economic, social and political empowerment of women.

Full call: G&D Call for Contributions Vol 26, Issue 2, July 2018 FINAL

29 September – 2 October 2017: Re-tracing Home – Drawing Workshops (Vienna, Austria)

We are delighted that the C4D Network is part of the ‘Re-tracing Home’ project by Guerilla Architects in cooperation with Caritas, future.lab, and Architecture for Refugees, and supported by Hans Sauer Stiftung as part of the Vienna Design Week (VDW).

In the scope of the so-called “refugee crisis” Guerilla Architects aim to develop experimental alternatives to conventional “refugee architecture” hand in hand with newcomers. A two-phase participatory workshop and guided city walks shall provide the basis of an “ideal home” installation.

What does home mean to you? These creative drawing and writing workshop will bring together newcomers, social workers, designers and VDW visitors to exchange ides about the ‘ideal’ home. They will investigate how far the “speaking, writings and drawing with different voices” can incorporate the socio-cultural and architectural background of the participants into the design process of their “home-making”.

If you want to pre-book, please state your preferred event(s) and send an email with your motivation and background to: re-tracinghome@guerillaarchitects.de

4 – 8 December: International Civil Society Week 2017 – Our Planet. Our Struggles. Our Future (Suva, Fiji)

International Civil Society Week (ICSW) is a key global gathering for civil society and other stakeholders to engage constructively in finding common solutions to global challenges. For the first time in more than 20 years of international convening, CIVICUS in partnership with the Pacific Islands Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (PIANGO) will hold its flagship event in the Pacific region.
Holding ICSW 2017 in the Pacific provides an ideal forum for civil society to meet and discuss climate and social justice. This year the Pacific will feature prominently in several key intergovernmental initiatives, including COP 23, the UN’s Oceans Conference and the UN international year of sustainable tourism for development. The organisers hope that convening civil society leaders in the Pacific will help reflect on these and other key issues outlined in the programme tracks.

‘People Power: The Study of Strategic Nonviolent Resistance’ – International Center on Nonviolent Conflict in partnership with Rutgers University International Institute for Peace online course (starts 27 September)
Online learning and training Peace/Fragile States

International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC), in partnership with Rutgers University International Institute for Peace (Rutgers IIP) will host a free, moderated online course, People Power: The Study of Strategic Nonviolent Resistance,” which will take place from September 27 to November 10, 2017.

For the past several years, ICNC has supported work to develop unique datasets of nonviolent campaigns (NAVCO). In 2011, this work led to a ground-breaking quantitative study that showed that civil resistance movements often emerge and succeed in challenging environments. It also established that civil resistance struggles are more than twice as effective against violent states as armed resistance groups.

Informed by these important developments in the field and scholarly findings, this free, online course provides an interactive, in-depth and multidisciplinary perspective on civilian-based movements and campaigns that defend and obtain basic rights and justice around the world. The course explains the nature of civil resistance and its force, underlying dynamics, and effectiveness.

The course will reflect on the skills and agency of ordinary people, their strategies and tactics, the backfire effect, and defections, and look at how entrenched political and social structures and practices shift under the pressure of organized nonviolent movements, and the long-term impacts on societies, nations and institutions.

Finally, the course will also examine a variety of case studies of civil resistance struggles, including those whose objectives are not regime change but instead to challenge corruption, change policies, or counter abusive and violent non-state actors.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the e-Agriculture Community of Practice (CoP) are launching a call for good and promising practices on the use of ICTs for Agriculture in the region of Europe and Central Asia.

The call aims at collecting lessons learned and recommendations of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), also called digital technologies, for agriculture initiatives in Europe and Central Asia and sharing them among the members and followers of the e-Agriculture Community of Practice and beyond.

The selected good and promising practices will be disseminated on the e-Agriculture platform and social media and will be part of an online FAO publication on good practices on the use of ICTs for Agriculture in Europe and Central Asia.

A presentation on experience capitalization and good practices in ICTs for agriculture is available in English and Russian (link will be made available soon), giving more information on the methodology.
