Eyes On Suriname in 2021 and entering in 2022
The last few years have been a crazy combination and trends: Reacting quickly to cascading crises and disruptions can leave you feeling frozen in your tracks when it comes to longer-term planning.
Looking back, we at eyesonsuriname are proud of what we have contributed to broader public understanding of our troubled but promising and hopeful country during these strained times. In fact, by many measures, these past few years have been among the more productive and impactful in our history since 2013 when the Central Bank of Suriname first hired us but later on abandoned the project.
Looking ahead, we enter 2022 with an eye on the longer horizon; we want to stay responsive to the events around us while increasing our focus on the challenges of our common future.
Our mission is to bring facts to the public without advocacy or policy prescriptions.
We present our findings not to achieve a particular outcome, but to enrich your understanding of the world around you, the way it is changing, and our common place in it.
What do you think? How are we doing in fulfilling our mission? Are we publishing the right topics? Are we sharing what we have learned in an accessible, engaging and informative way?
These are some of the questions we’ve been pondering, and we invite your suggestions.
Please reply to this email and share your ideas. We’d love to hear from you.
Finally, I’d like to thank you for your continued interest ans support in our work. We look forward to bringing you new insights about our world in 2022 and beyond.
