DIGNITY AND JUSTICE In 2011 protests spread across the Arab world demanding dignity and justice. This is a vision we share. It is a vision that inspires and drives our daily work. The picture on the front cover is a young boy resting on Tahrir Square, symbolizing hope and faith for a better future.
CMI generates and communicates knowledge relevant for fighting poverty, advancing human rights, and promoting sustainable social development. We seek to understand how poor, vulnerable and marginalized people lead their lives, how their opportunities can be enhanced, how their rights can be advanced, and how institutions can be created that prevent people from falling into extreme poverty.
CMI pursues long term research agendas at the same time as we reorient our research according to development trends. The upheavals in the Arab world reshaped our agenda in 2011. We follow the region closely through our program on Transformations in the Arab World, focusing in particular on how new power structures reshape the opportunities and constraints for women and religious minorities. We pay increasing attention to the role of new world powers (China, India and Brazil in particular) in development processes, and to issues of food security in the wake of rising food prices and increased vulnerability due to climate change. Our research output was substantial in 2011. In addition to a number of articles and book chapters, we published quite a few books on issues such as the international project in Afghanistan, the politics of ethnicity in Ethiopia, poverty in Namibia, justice and human rights in Latin America, the role of courts in advancing health rights, and the economics of corruption. We also conducted several important evaluations, including the evaluation of the Norwegian peace efforts in Sri Lanka (1997-2009). Communication and dialogue with knowledge users are fundamental to bridge the gap between knowledge and action. Our target audience spans from governments and development agencies, to local communities and civil society organizations. CMI researchers also take part in the public discourse. In 2011, our media visibility continued to increase both in Norwegian and international media, especially in countries where we do research.
The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre received favorable evaluations in 2011, and an ambitious new strategy was drafted which reinforced the focus on developing a solid knowledge hub with targeted communication services. CMI thrives in close partnerships with other research institutions, both globally and locally. An important milestone in 2011 was the new four-year cooperation agreement with the Catholic University in Luanda, Angola, built around a comprehensive research program on Angolan society. Locally, our relationship with the University of Bergen and the Norwegian School of Economics continues to grow, both through project cooperation and through our common communication venue the Bergen Resource Centre for International Development. In 2011, we have welcomed a number of new staff to CMI, most of them recruited internationally. The competence and diversity they have brought to CMI, is a great strength. Our ability to attract international researchers has confirmed what we have known all along, that CMI is a great place to work. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all staff and to all our partners for your efforts and commitment to research for development and justice.

religion in society Research on cultures and politics of faith investigates how religious groups express their faith in different settings and explores the dialectics between the local and the global. Our research seeks to grasp the power of religion in the framing, understanding, and motivation for social and political action.
Blogging from Tahrir
Bread, dignity and justice
Religious minorities in the Middle East A. N. Longva and A. S. Roald
We did not see them growing up. We did not think these jaded middle-class boys and girls would one day be resilient and hold their ground. Enraged yet nonviolent, they used technology and the vocabulary of democracy to connect and mobilize ordinary Arab citizens of all walks of life and capture the attention of the world. In Egypt, Tahrir Square became the epicenter of the peopleâ€™s demands for bread, dignity, and social justice. Without leaders or a timetable, but with unconditional demands for immediate change, online activists provided us with physical and social grounds to imagine a new country. We all brought something to the square: blood, medicines, bandages, food, water, blankets, generators, diapers, mobile-phone chargers, garbage bags, wipes, and our own personal notes to the regime (and the world) written in bold letters. Mine just said: â€œLeave.â€?
Nefissa Naguib, February 2011
Through the study of strategies of domination, resilience, and accommodation among both Muslim and non-Muslim minorities, this volume throws into relief the inherently dynamic character of a relationship which is increasingly influenced by global events and global connections.

2011 key publications
Promoting women’s rights in Afghanistan: The ambiguous footprint of the West
The many faces of political Islam in Sudan: Muslim women’s activism for and against the state
Torunn Wimpelmann in A Liberal Peace?
Liv Tønnessen Disputes over Islamist gender politics are an important gateway to understanding broader political contestation concerning the role of Islam in state and society in Sudan.
Western presence in Afghanistan has an ambiguous effect on the conditions of Afghan women. The intervention set in motion a number of contradictory processes.
special focus on sexual violence DRC International conference Sexual violence: The case of eastern Congo Ingrid Samset in The Peace in Between: Post-war violence and peacebuilding
CMI in collaboration with the University of Bergen invited international scholars to discuss why sexual violence is used in wars. Why does it vary between countries both during and after conflicts?
Sexual violence became widespread in eastern DRC during the civil war from 1998 to 2003, and continued after the war. Sexual violence assumed a strategic function for armed groups in a context where state institutions were weak, and functioned as a bonding mechanism among groups of fighters.

from conflict to PEACE Conflict and peace profoundly influence the prospects of securing development and justice. By drawing on theoretical frameworks and field-based experiences from ongoing conflicts, this research cluster challenges the present peacebuilding discourse. Our policy related research is developed in collaboration with researchers from countries in conflict and with international experts.
2011 key evaluations
Pawns of Peace. Evaluation of Norwegian peace efforts in Sri Lanka, 1997-2009 G. M. SĂ¸rbĂ¸, J. Goodhand, B. Klem, A. E. Nissen, H. Selbervik This evaluation concludes that the peace process reproduced, rather than transformed underlying structural obstacles to conflict resolution.
Between two societies: Review of the Information, Return and Reintegration of Iraqi Nationals to Iraq (IRRINI) programme. A. Strand, S. Bendixsen, E. Paasche, J. Schultz Most of the Iraqis who join the programme do not see the programme as voluntary. The primary motivation for participating in the programme is denial of a Norwegian legal status. The programme is positively assessed by the returnees, but there is room for improvement.
2011 key book
When More is Less. The International Project in Afghanistan. Astri Suhrke The Western-led efforts to establish a new postTaliban order in Afghanistan contain serious tensions and contradictions that have significantly contributed to the lack of progress. The result is an extreme version of a rentier state that is predictably weak, corrupt and unaccountable.

Access to health: A matter of life or death Health plays a crucial role in human development and social justice. Large improvements in health outcomes of poor populations are technologically and economically feasible. Yet there are enormous challenges in implementing health systems that deliver quality services, and in overcoming the economic and social factors that produce ill-health and represent barriers to care.
Research conference in Dar es Salam:
Strengthening human resources for health: Health worker Motivation, Availability and Performance (MAP) was completed in December 2011. In October, a two day workshop was held at the premises of our partner institution National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in Dar es Salaam. Project members and invited speakers presented their findings for an engaged audience of researchers, NGO staff and government officials, including a representative from the Ministry of Health and also from parliament. Earlier in the year, the projectâ€™s findings were presented in seven of the districts where the data has been collected, and for development partners in Tanzania.

2011 key book
Judicial independence and human rights in Latin America: Violations, politics and prosecution Elin Skaar In many Latin American countries, former military officers are now facing charges of torture, murder, forced disappearance, and genocide committed under the dictatorships of the 1970s and 1980s. This comparative analysis explores the complex relationship between executive politics and judicial action, showing that judicial independence is a crucial factor in prosecution.
special focus on guatemala
Across Latin America, debates and practice around indigenous law provide a window on shifting relations between indigenous movements, states, and international actors. In Guatemala, the practice of indigenous law is a reflection of cultural difference, a response to past and present violence, and a resource for a population denied access to justice. In the postwar period, indigenous law has become a central element of contemporary Mayan identity politics, argues Rachel Sieder.

Rising economic powers in the South have become increasingly important actors in international politics and the global economy. They are cooperating, interacting and sometimes competing in a number of alliances and frameworks for collaboration.
Their role has become particularly visible and vocal in the case of Africa. The new South powers are becoming major trade partners and investors in Africa. Their companies are scrambling for access to the continent and its resources.

Oiled progress or foiled prospects? Natural resources have an ambiguous impact on development. Income from natural resources increases the wealth of nations directly. However, certain natural resources impair the development prospects of countries because natural resource rents generate dysfunctional behavior such as patronage, rentseeking or outright conflict. Our research focuses on natural resource ambiguities by analysing political and social mechanisms linking or delinking resources and development.

Income from mining has had little impact on economic development in Ghana. Incentive problems in institutions directly or peripherally involved in mining governance make it difficult to implement policies that could improve social welfare. The paper argues that the net impact of mining on economic development is likely to be enhanced with appropriate governance reforms.
