The publication of this book created a great deal of heat around the Africa operations of Dutch brewing giant Heineken. Published originally in 2015 (in Dutch), the 2019 English edition is a reworked updated version presenting eight-country studies and additional chapters on the company’s history in Africa, a critical discussion of its marketing strategies, corporate social responsibility and the economic impact of Heineken on local economies. Moreover, the author takes a closer look at the beer business in Africa’s conflict hotspots.

Geschichte der Gegenwart
Nach dem Tod des langjährigen Herrschers Idriss Déby Itno hat im Tschad ein Militärrat die Macht übernommen und die Verfassung ausgesetzt – gegen die Hoffnung der Jugend des Landes und mit der Unterstützung Europas, das sich wenig für dessen Demokratie interessiert.

The Conversation
The death of Chadian president Idriss Déby Itno from injuries sustained on the battlefield just days before he was to start his sixth term in office has been met with shock and incredulity. The Chadian military announced immediately that it would form a transition government headed by Déby’s 37-year-old son, Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, for the next 18 months. Like his father, Mahamat is highly ranked in the military. He is a decorated general.

The Kenyan Ministry of Interior recently urged international agencies to close down the Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps in Kenya, once again. This comes at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has already placed great burdens on the lives and livelihoods of refugees and intensified uncertainties. To better understand how the pandemic has affected refugees in Kenya, this paper discusses results from a recent qualitative questionnaire on refugee protection in light of COVID-19. We find that the pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges, and partly created new ones.

Chadian President Idriss Déby Itno, who has ruled since 1990, is gearing up to take on his sixth mandate as head of state. Elections are scheduled for 11 April 2021. And the country’s 2018 constitution allows him to stay in office, if elected, until 2033.

This post is part of the series “70 Years of UNHCR and the 1951 Refugee Convention: Global Developments”, which is edited and published in cooperation by the Völkerrechtsblog and the Forced Migration Studies Blog (FluchtforschungsBlog).
Though the UNHCR in South Africa go to great efforts to be neutral and provide the best possible assistance to those seeking refuge, by design they have to work together with the Home Affairs department. In practice this means that asylum seekers and refugees will often see them as co-responsible for the government (in-)actions. This piece looks at UNHCR and their roles in humanitarian relief, refugee protests and potential encampment policies, to reflect on their relationship to the South African government as well as refugees in the country.

Over the past decade several governments in Africa have experimented with diverse forms of “political dialogue” to address a variety of domestic political crises, ranging from political or constitutional turmoil to armed conflict. On the face of it most dialogues are not very successful or consequential as regards their results and impact. And yet, in political, symbolical and communicative terms they occupy a central, if seemingly short-lived place in national politics. They also absorb the attention of foreign diplomats who pin their hopes on dialogue as offering a solution to crisis.

This report discusses the socio-economic effects of solar energy in the Middle East and North Africa. It provides an overview over select literature on the energy-politics nexus and then discusses some of the ways in which different technologies and infrastructures, modes of financing, and forms of knowledge mediate solar energy’s socio-economic effects. Finally, it presents select empirical snapshots, in order to demonstrate solar energy’s context-dependence.

LANDS OF THE FUTURE Anthropological Perspectives on Pastoralism, Land Deals and Tropes of Modernity in Eastern Africa
Rangeland, forests and riverine landscapes of pastoral communities in Eastern Africa are increasingly under threat. Abetted by states who think that outsiders can better use the lands than the people who have lived there for centuries, outside commercial interests have displaced indigenous dwellers from pastoral territories. This volume presents case studies from Eastern Africa, based on long-term field research, that vividly illustrate the struggles and strategies of those who face dispossession and also discredit ideological false modernist tropes like ‘backwardness’ and ‘primitiveness’.

This contribution draws on rhythmanalysis and the political economy of assemblage to provide a framework for understanding the productive spatio‐temporal effects of physical violence on urban rhythms. The paper explores how Buenaventura, Colombia's biggest port city, is transformed both by the growth in container turnover, and through recurring, spatial and temporal practices of violence. What role does violence play in the relation between trade‐driven acceleration through the port, and the aquatic, tidal rhythm that historically shaped the city?

Transformations towards “ecological” infrastructures are often highly contested and reproduce social conflict. To enrich the debate on such contested infrastructure expansions, I combine po-litical economy and political ecology approaches with literature on the “politics of operation” and logistics. This paper analyses renewable energy infrastructures within the Mesoamerican Project, which foments the production of transnational territories and implies a growing role of global corporations in local social struggles.

How to rethink authoritarian power in ways that better account for authoritarian connections beyond nation-state boundaries? By reconceptualizing the context in which to analyze authoritarian power, we bring to light transregional authoritarian connections between the secondary port cities Aqaba/Jordan and Buenaventura/Colombia.

Ein Meilenstein bei der Aufarbeitung des Völkermords (1975-79) ist die Verurteilung hochrangiger Repräsentanten der Roten Khmer. Dadurch wurde die Geschichte des Genozids einer breiten Öffentlichkeit bekannt. Die Bevölkerung leidet unter Traumatisierung, politischer Repression, Landraub, Korruption und einem schwachen Justizsystem.

Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung - Schwerpunkt Sahel
Der Sahel gehört weltweit zu den gefährlichsten Konfliktregionen. Die Covid-19-Pandemie wirkt dort wie ein Katalysator auf bestehende Konflikte. Das Aktionsgebiet dschihadistischer Gruppen weitet sich auf die gesamte Region aus. Die Zahl der Binnenvertriebenen und Flüchtlinge nimmt dramatisch zu. Die innenpolitischen Spannungen verschärfen sich.
