    Susan George and contemporary anticapitalist struggles within and against the global food system

    15 Octubre 2021
    Article

    This year, 2021, the global community of food sovereignty activists is celebrating what is deemed as the 25th year anniversary of food sovereignty – as it protests against a corporate-captured UN Food System Summit (UNFSS) this September 2021. The global food system remains front and center in international political debates, as working people struggle to survive during this ongoing pandemic while a few corporate food giants continue to make huge profits. The struggle to dismantle the unjust, unsustainable industrial food system while constructing alternatives around food sovereignty is at the core of contemporary anti-capitalist struggles.

    Kratom in Myanmar and southeast Asia: time for legal regulation?

    14 Octubre 2021
    Article

    Commonly found in Southeast Asia including in Myanmar, leaves from the kratom tree have long been used as a traditional medicine to treat various health conditions, including diabetes, diarrhoea, fever and pain. Kratom is currently banned in Myanmar, and the WHO's Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) is discussing this week whether it should be placed under international drug control. Instead of criminalisation, however, this commentary argues that legal regulation of kratom could contribute to building safer communities, promoting development and supporting peace efforts in Myanmar and beyond.

  5. Del sueño solar de España a la pesadilla Legal

    Report

    En los últimos 10 años el Estado español ha recibido más demandas de arbitraje de inversión que cualquier otro Estado. Con 50 casos en total, es hoy el segundo país en el mundo con más demandas en tribunales arbitrales internacionales. Cada vez hay más dinero de las arcas del Estado en juego; no solo para pagar a los inversores las cantidades resultantes de los laudos, sino los costes de abogados y expertos, los gastos de administración del centro de arbitraje y los honorarios de los árbitros. Todas las demandas contra el Estado español se acogen a un acuerdo internacional de comercio y de inversión llamado Tratado de la Carta de la Energía (TCE).

  7. Primer on climate security

    • Nick Buxton
    12 Octubre 2021
    Primer

    There is a growing political demand for climate security as a response to the escalating impacts of climate change, but little critical analysis on what kind of security they offer and to who. This primer demystifies the debate - highlighting the role of the military in causing the climate crisis, the dangers of them now providing military solutions to climate impacts, the corporate interests that profit, the impact on the most vulnerable, and alternative proposals for 'security' based on justice.

  10. Kratom: the creation of a threat

    • Martin Jelsma
    11 Octubre 2021

    A pre-review of kratom (Mitragyna speciosa), a tree native to Southeast Asia, and its two principal psychoactive alkaloids (mitragynine, 7-hydroxymitragynine), is on the agenda of the 44th WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) for their 11-15 October 2021 meeting. Kratom and its compounds have not previously been reviewed by WHO and are not currently under international control, but a number of Southeast Asian and European countries as well as Australia have varying levels of national controls in place. How did kratom get on the ECDD agenda? And what are the chances that this process will ultimately lead to kratom being put under international control?

    Don’t be fooled by a high-tech ‘virtual’ wall: It’s even more invasive than a physical wall.

  13. Colonialismo digital

    • Sofia Scasserra, Carolina Martínez Elebi
    07 Octubre 2021
    Policy briefing

    La batalla mundial por el control de la economía digital suele describirse como una lucha entre dos únicos titanes: EE.UU. y China, pero eso no significa que la UE se haya quedado parada. Como se documenta en este informe, la UE ha hecho grandes esfuerzos por ponerse al día utilizando las negociaciones y las normas comerciales para hacer valer sus propios intereses. En el proceso, la UE está tratando de trepar sobre las espaldas de los países en desarrollo, socavando la posibilidad de que todos compartan equitativamente los beneficios del desarrollo tecnológico.

  14. Digital colonialism

    • Sofia Scasserra, Carolina Martínez Elebi
    06 Octubre 2021
    Policy briefing

    The global battle for control of the digital economy is typically portrayed as one fought by only two titans: US and China, but that does not mean that the EU has been standing still. As this briefing documents, the EU has been making strong efforts to catch up using trade negotiations and trade rules to assert its own interests. In the process, the EU is trying to climb up on the backs of the developing countries, undermining the chance for all to equitably share in the benefits of technological development.

  15. Smart Borders or a Humane World?

    06 Octubre 2021

    On January 20, 2021, his first day in office, President Biden issued an executive order pausing the remaining construction of the southern border wall initiated during the Trump administration. Soon after, the White House sent a bill to Congress, the US Citizenship Act of 2021, calling for the deployment of “smart technology” to “manage and secure the southern border.”

  17. Cannabis regulation: Lessons from the illicit tobacco trade

    • Benoît Gomis
    28 Septiembre 2021
    Policy briefing

    Since 2013, a number of countries and local jurisdictions around the world have legalised and regulated their cannabis supply chains for non-medical use. Lawmakers, regulators, researchers, and advocates continue to design, enact, implement and revise regulatory frameworks for medical and recreational cannabis. And yet lessons from regulating other psychoactive substances, including tobacco products, are not always fully considered.

  19. Surmonter la crise de Covid-19 avec équité

    • Ali Amouzai, Sylvia Kay
    23 Septiembre 2021
    Report

    Cette étude examine les intersections entre Covid-19 et les systèmes alimentaires dans la région nord-africaine. Elle examine comment certaines conditions liées au paradigme dominant de la « sécurité alimentaire » ont accentué la vulnérabilité au bouleversement économique provoqué par la pandémie. Elle analyse les impacts de la Covid-19, en particulier sur les travailleur·euse·s (ruraux·ales) et les petits·e·s producteur·rice·s alimentaires, et la manière dont les gouvernements de la région ont répondu à ces défis. Enfin, elle propose une voie pour sortir de cette crise en s'appuyant sur des modèles de souveraineté alimentaire et de justice économique.

  20. Towards a Just Recovery from the Covid-19 Crisis

    • Ali Amouzai, Sylvia Kay
    22 Septiembre 2021
    Report

    This report examines the intersections between Covid-19 and food systems across the North African region. It looks at how the dominant ‘food security’ paradigm increased vulnerability to the economic dislocation wrought by the pandemic. It examines the impacts of Covid-19, particularly on (rural) working people and small-scale food producers and how governments across the region responded to these challenges. Finally, it offers a pathway out of this moment of crisis rooted in models of food sovereignty and economic justice.
