    Policy briefing

    Los agricultores jóvenes y en ciernes de Europa enfrentarán crecientes barreras, ya que la tierra se está concentrando rápidamente en cada vez menos fincas grandes. La tierra está distribuida de manera aún más desigual que la riqueza. El número de pequeñas fincas está sufriendo una caída vertiginosa, con consecuencias devastadoras para la seguridad alimentaria, el empleo y el desarrollo.

    Policy briefing

    Les jeunes agriculteurs européens devront faire face à davantage d'obstacles pour rentrer dans l'agriculture, car la terre est consolidée rapidement dans relativement peu de grandes exploitations.

    Policy briefing

    This briefing updates the July 2016 report ‘Border Wars: the arms dealers profiting from Europe’s refugee tragedy’ . It shows that the European policy response to the refugee tragedy continues to provide a booming border security market for Europe’s arms and security firms, some of whom are involved in selling arms to the Middle East and North Africa and all of whom encourage European policies focused on keeping refugees out. It’s a win-win for the security corporations, but the cost is a deadly toll for migrants forced into ever more dangerous routes as they flee wars, conflict and oppression.

    In an astonishing move which ignores the opinion of millions of citizens who oppose ISDS, the governments of Austria, France, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands (AFFGN) have made a sly attempt to institutionalise ISDS throughout the European Union. According to a leaked non-paper, on the 7th April representatives of these five nations made a proposal to the EU Council’s Trade Policy Committee which would in effect create a plurilateral treaty based on foreign investment protection within the EU. A move which was suspiciously followed by publication of a similar proposal on Business Europe’s website in what appears to have been a coordinated action.
