    Topic

    TNI has long been an advocate for trade and investment policies that prioritise people and the environment over corporate interests. In the case of Colombia, TNI has worked closely with local activists and researchers in analysing and proposing alternatives to free trade agreements that are implemented at the expense of basic human and environmental needs, mainly in relation to the FTA EU-Colombia.

    Argentina is known as a “transit country” for cocaine.

  7. Drug law reform in Mexico

    01 January 2013
    Topic

    Mexico is the Latin American country that has bore the highest costs from the War on Drugs, suffering from high national rates of violence, corruption in state institutions, and an increase in the power of organised crime groups. As with other countries in the region, implementation of a prohibitionist drug law approach has had the adverse effect of increasing the number of people held in prison for minor drug offences. This page summarises the latest developments in the debate on drug law and drug policy in Mexico.

  8. Comercio de carbono

    01 January 2013
    Topic

    El comercio de carbono —o la comercialización de permisos para contaminar— es un enfoque para reducir las emisiones de carbono basado en el mercado y profundamente ineficaz e injusto. Intentar convertir el carbono de la atmósfera en un producto privatizado ha creado mercados susceptibles a la presión empresarial, desviado la atención de los cambios sistémicos que se necesitan para convertir nuestras economías e infligido injusticias a comunidades marginadas del Norte que quedan atrapadas en las zonas de mayor contaminación y comunidades campesinas del Sur que son despojadas de tierras y medios de sustento en nombre de la acción climática.

    Topic

    Como consecuencia de una tregua entre las principales bandas de delincuentes del país (maras), el número de homicidios en El Salvador, en lo que va de 2013, ha disminuido en un 45 por ciento con respecto al año anterior. Siendo El Salvador uno de los país que tiene una de las tasas de homicidio más elevadas en el mundo (2011: 71 por 100 mil habitantes), la tregua constituye un paso hacia adelante en la erradicación de la violencia en las calles y según algunos, la lucha contra el menudeo y tráfico de drogas.
