There won’t be anything like a calmer moment: Somaliland, Catalunya and lessons from 2017

For our last post of the year, we feature 3 beautifully-written and reflective articles by Cecilia Milesi, a professional and activist who states that “transformation will only happen if the Global South countries and its people play a leading transformational role in local-global politics and if societies are respectful of human rights and citizens’ participation.”

The first piece looks at the remarkable story of Somaliland’s transformation and quest for international recognition… please read it HERE

The second explores the ongoing struggles in Catalunya, which can be read HERE

The third is entitled “Lessons from 2017: The power of collective intelligence and organizing” and can be read HERE

All the articles are available in both English and Spanish.  You can also visit Cecilia’s website for more HERE

Thanks to Cecilia for the great writing…. Enjoy the pieces and feel inspired as we move towards the joys and challenges ahead of us in 2018.
