  3. Unmasking Authoritarianism

    26 April 2018


    With the likes of Putin, Trump, Xi Jinping and Modi controlling some of the world’s most powerful nations, authoritarianism is fast being normalised. The rise of these figures has been paralleled by a disturbing growth in nationalist, racist and xenophobic forces, disaffection towards traditional democratic institutions and a steady increase in repression of social movements and civil society.  The promises of Fukuyama, Friedman and others that capitalism and liberal, open societies were inextricably bound together lie today in tatters.

  16. About

    03 November 2011

    The last few decades have witnessed a dramatic capture of public policy by transnational corporations (TNCs) which has undermined democracy and increased the profits of a small few at the expense of the vast majority of people and the environment. The Transnational Institute has challenged corporate power for several decades, setting up the Transnational Information Exchange in 1978, leading struggles against privatisation of water and carbon by corporations, and in recent years working with allies in Europe and Latin America to hold Permanent Tribunals to expose corporate crimes.

  19. Drugs and Conflict in Burma

    08 February 2011

    Burma/Myanmar is undergoing yet another humanitarian crisis while entering a new critical political stage. In the Kokang region, an opium ban was enforced in 2003, and since mid-2005 no more poppy growing has been allowed in the Wa region. Banning opium in these Shan State regions where most of the Burmese opiates were produced, adds another chapter to the long and dramatic history of drugs, conflict and human suffering.
