Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) erode the ability of governments to act in the best interests of their citizens by allowing foreign investors to sue sovereign states when governments' social, environmental and economic regulations have affected their profits. TNI, as part of the Seattle to Brussels network, is campaigning for a Just EU Investment policy that puts corporate accountability and human rights above corporate profits!

Among the most significant losses in the maelstrom of 21st-century life has been the virtual disappearance of attempts to analyse the present in the longue durée. Giovanni Arrighi’s work—and that of his collaborators—represents a pioneering effort to do exactly this. We can only hope that future generations will have the wisdom to build on his thinking, most especially the spirit of solidarity and scholarly acuity which informed all his work.
After decades of armed conflict, a peace process with the FARC-EP guerrilla movement was concluded in Colombia in 2016, serving as both a challenge and opportunity for the future of territorial peace, justice, and democracy in the country. In cooperation with local policymakers, experts, and social movements, TNI's work in Colombia revolves around the institute's cross-cutting expertise in trade policy, agrarian and environmental justice, and drug policy.
TNI’s Agrarian & Environmental Justice programme brings together research and analysis on the collective struggles of rural working people to democratise access, ownership, and control of land, water and other natural resources. It works closely in alliance with local, national and global alliances of small-scale farmers, fisherfolk and marginalised rural working people.
