    beschrijving
    © 2018 Newcastle University Citizen science projects are increasingly recognised as catalyst for triggering behaviour change and building social capital around environmental issues. However, overview studies observe recurrent challenges in many citizen science projects in terms of combining high levels of data quality with deep citizen engagement and policy influence. This paper reports on the findings of the CurieuzeNeuzen project (www.CurieuzeNeuzen.eu), a large-scale citizen science project on air quality in Antwerp, delivering results in the three areas described above. Through CurieuzeNeuzen, 2,000 citizens studied the air quality levels in and around Antwerp in 2016 and were intensively deliberating on possible causes and solutions. Surveys were conducted at the start and towards the end of the project, with participants stating that their participation resulted in changed views and behaviour towards air pollution, mobility solutions, and city planning. The findings were picked-up academically and contributed to policy debates on air quality at city and regional level.

    Makundi, H; 2018. South-South cooperationbetween theory and practice: Assessing the role of China on building the technological capacity in Tanzania.
    LIRIAS1864181
    beschrijving
    This Ph.D. research emerged from an observed disconnect between the growing research focus on the Chinese engagements in Africa, coupled with a failure to address the existing knowledge gap about the influence of such engagements towards technological and industrial development in the continent. The dissertation noted the official narratives and enthusiasm among the top leaders Africa to acquire the Chinese experience with industrial and technological development. The realization of such dreams, however, has only attracted a few studies within the contemporary Sino-African literature. In response to this research challenge, the dissertation was designed to examine a selection of Chinese engagement schemes in Tanzania and their influence on the technological capacity building. This is guided by the main research question on how the (selected) four Chinese assistance programs in Tanzania contribute to stimulating technological innovation in Tanzania and the role of Tanzanian state actors in this process. The dissertation contributes to the body of knowledge about dynamics and influence of the Tanzanian government over the Chinese engagements. Among the key findings presented the various forms technology transfer between the three researched Chinese invested enterprises and Tanzanian ICT firms. This includes labor localization and training practices, capacity building to suppliers and subcontractor firms and the induced imitative practices among the local firms. Similarly, the analysis showed the influence of a Chinese Agro Technology Demonstration and Training Center (ATDC) on the adoption of improved rice farming technologies by farmers in rural Tanzania, and also the contribution of the two major Chinese training and scholarship schemes in improving individual and institutional capabilities while building the national stock of knowledge for innovation. Along with such positive contributions, the dissertation encountered a set of structural barriers and limitations to the technological capacity building efforts, of which some cut across more than one of the researched case study. The level of capacity building and extent of technology transfer were impeded by language differences among other socio-cultural barriers, and the widening technological gaps between China and Tanzania. The dissertation critiques the Tanzanian government's policies and strategies towards the acquisition of technology from Chinese invested enterprises, and also the poor emphasis on technology acquisition and local content utilization in bilateral partnership programs. Both both Tanzanian and Chinese state and non-state agencies are poorly rated in harnessing bilateral programs to stimulate human interactions and private sector engagements for a maximized exchange of knowledge and experiences. In addition to the empirical evidence, the dissertation has also contributed to the conceptualization of trans-national technology transfer and technological capacity building, with a link-up of technology transfer efforts with South-South Cooperation (SSC). In terms of methodology, this dissertation adopted the various approaches which were found to be appropriate for the research questions, and in response to a structural challenge of poor access to data on Chinse engagements. A multi-case study research approach was used with different methods applied to each of the four journal articles which forms the dissertation's main body. For example, a tracer study tool was used to examine the two Chinese scholarship and training schemes and their contribution to the technological human capacity building among individual trainees and their employers in Tanzania. On the other hand, a combination of participant observation, interviews and focus group was used in another article to experience and record patterns of agricultural technology adoption. In conclusion; the dissertation acknowledges the emerging role of Tanzanian state actors and their agency, which has proven success in attracting Chinese aid and investment resources. At the same time the dissertation warns against the incapacity of this agency to counterbalance the 'structural asymmetry' from China's soft power and geo-strategic interests in the country, particularly in relations to the industrial capacity (Cabestan & Chaponnière, 2016). To keep up with the rapidly evolving Chinese presence, the Tanzanian government is urged to advance its strategy on industrial and technological cooperation with China. Intensified engagements of Chinese profit seeking actors necessitates a more elaborate policy framework in Tanzania, which includes a support system to fuel interactions with local firms for knowledge transfer.

    beschrijving
    This report assesses recent human rights due diligence (HRDD)-related efforts of three European countries -the Netherlands, Germany and France-, with a specific focus on the policy frameworks that are used, and new multi-stakeholder initiatives and regulatory measures that are taken. This comparative analysis is then used to assess Belgium’s efforts on contributing to sustainable supply chains. The findings of the research also serve as an input for future policy influencing work by Belgian civil society organisations, which are active on the topic of business and human rights.

    beschrijving
    Is the Tanzanian government in charge of development cooperation programmes with China? The literature has portrayed the Tanzanian and other state actors in Africa as passive and weakly coordinated players over the five decades of intensified cooperation with China. This paper will attempt to challenge this narrative by drawing on lessons from the negotiation efforts of individual and institutional actors in Tanzania, as they sought to improve the country’s industrial and technological capacity, among other interests. Our findings revealed a gap between the capacity to attract Chinese investments and development assistance, and extraction of knowledge and technology from such engagements. President John Pombe Magufuli’s anti-corruption measures signal a paradigm shift against the rent-seeking tendencies, elitism and limited utilisation of local content under the Chinese partnership projects. Nevertheless, the combination of a declining share of official Chinese engagements with the increased involvement of private actors necessitates further policy innovations in order to boost inter-firm technological spillovers.

  • Hermans, Maarten; Huyse, Huib; Van Ongevalle, Jan; 2017. Linking Social Dialogue and the Sustainable Development Goals: Social Dialogue as a Governance Instrument.
    LIRIAS1898299
    beschrijving
    In this ILO – ITUC Issues Paper we draw on development and labour relations literature to set out an initial framework for the consideration and assessment of how social dialogue can contribute to sustainable development. We start from the observation of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) that social dialogue, one of the core features of the Decent Work Agenda, is not well known or understood within the development community, and that its potential to contribute to sustainable development and its governance has not been sufficiently realized. This apparent lack of attention to the role of social dialogue is paradoxical, given the demonstrated impact of social dialogue on multiple targets identified in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and its potential for supporting processes that aim to realize those goals. Specifically, we argue that social dialogue is a form of governance that offers certain benefits for the achievement of the SDG, when compared to governance mechanisms that are primary market, State or NGO-driven. These advantages are linked to the inclusive nature of the social dialogue process and the way in which interaction is organized within that process. We provide illustrations of how social dialogue can contribute to five key dimensions of sustainable development, i.e. thematic clusters of SDG: (1) working conditions, workers’ rights and equality at work; (2) access (to public services) and redistribution; (3) growth and innovation; (4) environment and climate; and (5) governance and participation. Secondly, we discuss contextual factors affecting this role of social dialogue, and the link with the principles of the Development Effectiveness Agenda. We finish by outlining a research agenda to improve understanding of the many pathways through which social dialogue can make an contribution to sustainable development.

    beschrijving
    In the editorial of this special issue the concept of citizen initiatives for global solidarity is introduced. It is no longer acceptable to approach citizens mainly or only as a passive subject in development cooperation. Recognising that citizens are not only recipients, donors or supporters but also active ‘development workers’ themselves makes it a topic worth studying. The fact that the decade-long focus on the usual suspects in international cooperation is extremely slow in being broadened only adds to this. The same holds for the continuing discussion about global citizenship which, according to Pollet et al. (2014), should essentially be about the extent to which ordinary citizens themselves are willing to act in order to contribute to development or to global justice.

    Southern trade unions possess relevant experiences and practices that can inform their counterparts in other countries to address similar challenges. From 2012 to 2016 the Belgian trade union ACV-CSC/IIWE in cooperation with ten Southern trade unions carried out a capacity building programme to unlock this knowledge by facilitating exchanges. An end-of programme evaluation of HIVA-KU Leuven identifies the main characteristics of the strategy as well as good practices of how South-South exchange can induce organisational and policy change

    The case study in this paper examines the contribution of scholarship programmes provided by the Chinese government in improving human capital in the fields of science, technology, and innovation in Tanzania. The case study constitutes a survey of 85 Tanzanians who have received training in China, and interviews with 13 individuals including some of the surveyed trainees, scholarship administrators, and other stakeholders. While critical comments were raised, the trainees in our sample were largely positive about the Chinese training experiences. Besides the direct transfer of skills and exposure to China’s modernity, the indirect outcome of technology transfer has come about through the importation of equipment and technical literature. However efforts to transfer and apply acquired knowledge have been regularly impeded by structural barriers including cross-cultural communication problems, differences in attitude, and the fact that in several cases Tanzania does not have the capacity to absorb some of the advanced Chinese technologies taught in the courses. Two-way communication is needed in order to inform and adapt the Chinese government training programmes to the specific needs of the recipient African economies.

    © 2016 The Chinese Economic Association – UK. Tanzania has ambitions of moving from a mere consumer of information and communication technologies to a designing and manufacturing base. This paper aims to assess the role of public–private partnerships with Chinese institutions in the achievement of this goal. Through an in-depth case study, this paper examines the contributions of three Chinese multinationals in terms of technology transfer and technological capacity building in local firms in Tanzania. The analysis contrasts the organisation of improvements on the manner of technology transfer and capacity building in these partnerships with prior Sino-Tanzanian partnership efforts in technology and industry. The Chinese multinationals had a labour localisation rate of 60% on average, with some training services provided to Tanzanian nationals and supply of services and equipment to Tanzanian firms. However, the overall level of technology transfer continues to be weak. Observed barriers to technology transfer include weak incentives for collaboration between Chinese and Tanzanian firms and low-level technology embedded in activities offshored by the Chinese multinationals to Tanzania.

    beschrijving
    This study, commissioned by the Flemish NGO-Federation intends to shed light on key trends in governmental support for civil society organisations (CSO). More specifically the study aims to identify the most important trends in governmental funding in eight different OECD-DAC countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and UK) and the EU. These actors represent different approaches to development cooperation in general and CSO support in particular, have experienced different evolutions in their ODA, and together represented around 50% of the governmental funding going to CSOs in the period under review. The study was executed over the period December 2014 to September 2015. Research questions addressed the funding context and policy; the scope of funding; the income sources of CSOs; the funding modalities and criteria; funding procedures and the relationship between CSOs and the government.
