    Transforming agricultural research and development systems to meet 21st Century needs for climate action2024Inngår i: Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, E-ISSN 2571-581X, Vol. 8Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this opinion piece we address how to ensure that agricultural research for development is fit for purpose for the Twentyfirst Century. We focus on two themes: (i) the urgent need to engage social (together with natural) scientists in transdisciplinary research processes; (ii) the importance of the co-creation of knowledge via more democratic partnerships that genuinely address power asymmetries, as well as different stakeholders' roles (and responsibilities). We highlight discrepancies in the mix of social and natural science agricultural research, and also what may come across as a tepid commitment to partnerships despite the best intentions of many researchers.

    Ecowas' dilemma: balancing principles and pragmatism : West Africa's regional bloc faces disintegration after failed sanctions against military regimes2024Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The decision by Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger to leave Ecowas reflects the bloc’s failure to address security and humanitarian issues in the subregion. It is also a result of people losing faith in Ecowas’ leadership after years of complacency and inconsistency in championing its democratic principles. Pragmatic dialogue with the member states currently run by military regimes will be crucial if regional collaboration is to be revived. And defending democratic values will be crucial if civilian rule and popular trust are to be restored.
