    Policy briefing

    El presente informe intenta abordar esta deficiencia y establecer la conexión entre la externalización de la detención de migrantes de Europa a terceros países y las condiciones terribles en los centros de detención de migrantes. En resumen, Europa adopta decisiones sobre la detención de migrantes fuera de sus fronteras, pero no suele ser responsabilizada por sus consecuencias profundamente opresivas, como la detención arbitraria, la tortura, la desaparición forzosa, la violencia, la violencia sexual y la muerte.

    14 April 2021
    Policy briefing

    This report seeks to address the gap and join the dots between Europe’s outsourcing of migrant detention to third countries and the notorious conditions within the migrant detention centres. In a nutshell, Europe calls the shots on migrant detention beyond its shores but is rarely held to account for the deeply oppressive consequences, including arbitrary detention, torture, forced disappearance, violence, sexual violence, and death.

  6. Multistakeholderism

    31 March 2021

    Multistakeholderism offers corporations an increasingly powerful role in global decision-making and is becoming a default form of global governance. TNI's concern at this privatisation of global governance and its lack of democratic accountability led to a project that since 2016 has been analysing the impacts, mapping its scope, and proposing alternatives.

  8. The first step to stop corporations from profiting from incarceration in the United States

    Louisa Valentin
    30 March 2021

    Over the past decades, private corporations have increased their control over prison services in the United States and around the world. Despite enormous lobbying efforts by the private players, citizens have started to reject this agenda of profiting from the criminal justice system, and instead demand to return prison management to public authorities. Biden has announced an end to renewing federal private prison contracts, which should be the starting point for wider changes.

  9. Agua Pública y Coronavirus

    30 March 2021

    La pandemia de covid-19 ha demostrado una vez más la importancia del agua segura, accesible y asequible para la población. También ha puesto de manifiesto las enormes disparidades en la prestación de servicios y, al mismo tiempo, ha asestado un duro golpe a las empresas públicas de agua y saneamiento de todo el mundo, debido a la enorme caída de los ingresos, el rápido aumento de los costes y la necesidad de priorizar la salud y la seguridad en el trabajo.

    • Cecilia Olivet, Luciana Ghiotto
    22 March 2021

    El régimen de arbitraje de inversiones ha despertado enormes críticas en los últimos años. Pero un aspecto poco explorado es como este régimen menoscaba al poder judicial y a las decisiones tomadas por los jueces nacionales. Este reporte toma la experiencia de América Latina y presenta cinco escenarios para demostrar que las demandas inversor-Estado y los árbitros que deciden sobre ellas vulneran al poder judicial.

  12. Public Water and Covid-19

    22 March 2021

    Covid-19 has once again demonstrated the significance of safe, accessible and affordable water for all. It has also highlighted enormous disparities in service provision while at the same time dealing a blow to public water and sanitation operators around the world due to massive drops in revenues, rapidly rising costs and concerns about health and safety in the workplace. This book provides the first global overview of the response of public water operators to this crisis, shining a light on the complex challenges they face and how they have responded in different contexts. It looks specifically at ‘public’ water and asks how public ownership and public management have enabled (or not) equitable and democratic emergency services, and how these Covid-19 experiences could contribute to expanded and sustainable forms of public water services in the future.

  13. Antiracisme in ere herstellen

    • Azfar Shafi , Ilyas Nagdee
    19 March 2021

    In 2020 zijn de antiracismebewegingen in een stroomversnelling geraakt en daarmee ook het verzet tegen institutioneel racisme. Ondanks de geboekte vooruitgang blijven individualisme en fragmentatie de solidariteit ondermijnen en de antiracismebewegingen depolitiseren. Deze paper erkent de opeenstapeling van historische ontwikkelingen die bestaande denkrichtingen over antiracisme hebben beïnvloed. In de paper komen enkele van die bredere ontwikkelingen en tegenstrijdigheden aan bod. Ook wordt duidelijk waarom het belangrijk is ze te overwinnen als we de mogelijkheden van antiracistisch activisme optimaal willen benutten. Dat activisme moet een grootschalig socialistisch project zijn, met antiracisme als leidend principe.

  14. While Myanmar’s cities become military occupations, conflict persists in the ethnic borderlands

    Naw Hsa Moo, Dominique Dillabough-Lefebvre
    12 March 2021

    Following the February coup, the violence used by the security forces against civilian protestors in Myanmar’s towns and cities has shocked public opinion around the world. But, as Naw Hsa Moo and Dominique Dillabough-Lefebvre explain in this commentary, such tactics have long been used by the Myanmar armed forces in military operations in the country’s ethnic states and regions. Awareness is now building and, as they argue, the military coup has brought new understanding and sympathy between pro-democracy and ethnic nationality movements.

  15. Claves para derribar los mitos en torno al Tratado sobre la Carta de la Energía

    • Fabian Flues, Pia Eberhardt, Cecilia Olivet
    10 March 2021

    En los últimos meses ha aumentado la preocupación hacia el Tratado sobre la Carta de la Energía (TCE) por el peligro que supone para las acciones climáticas urgentes, y cada vez se unen más voces contra el tratado, pero los que se benefician de él también han incrementado su propaganda, promoviendo una serie de mensajes falsos sobre cómo el TCE atrae las inversiones limpias y cómo su "modernización" solucionará cualquier defecto. Desmonta su retórica con nuestra nueva guía para derribar los mitos del TCE.

    04 March 2021

    Over the past decades, transnational “Big Tech” corporations based in the United States have amassed trillions of dollars and gained excessive powers to control everything, from business and labor to social media and entertainment. Digital colonialism is now engulfing the world.

  19. Reflections on military coups in Myanmar: and why political actors in Arakan chose a different path

    Kyaw Lynn
    01 March 2021

    The 1 February coup by the military State Administration Council has caused protest and confusion in Myanmar and around the world. In this commentary, Kyaw Lynn puts in context the complexity of factors, personal as much as institutional, that preceded the military takeover during a difficult time for democratic progress on the international stage. He then looks at the critical situation in Rakhine State, examining why political trends have been different to other ethnic states and regions in the country.

  20. El Tratado de la Carta de la Energía es un acuerdo contra el clima. Firma la petición

    24 February 2021

    Para hacer frente a la crisis climática tenemos que dejar de usar fuentes de energía fósil y promover una transición energética justa. Pero los gobiernos que abandonan el carbón, acaben con la producción de gas o cancelen grandes infraestructuras de energías contaminantes pueden ser demandados por las empresas en tribunales privados y ser condenados a pagar miles de millones en daños. ¿Cómo? Usando el Tratado de la Carta de la Energía (TCE). Ahora depende de los gobiernos europeos y de la Comisión Europea salirse de este tratado contra el clima y frenar su expansión a más países. Actúa hoy para que esto ocurra.
