    Multi-billion dollar lawsuits bleeding cash-strapped nations, corporations reversing victories by environmental defenders and dazzling financial rewards for investors who perpetrated human rights abuses. Ten investor-state lawsuits which have been filed, threatened or decided since 2015, from all over the globe (in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America), demonstrate that ISDS is again and again used as a corporate weapon against the public interest. This report exposes the true nature of the ISDS regime through 10 recent stories that undermined justice.

    You can find the 10 stories online at 10isdsstories.org.

    Περίληψη

    Αυτή η έκθεση εξετάζει τις επιπτώσεις της λιτότητας στην Ελλάδα στο δικαίωμα στην τροφή. Καταλήγει στο συμπέρασμα ότι το ελληνικό κράτος και τα κράτη μέλη της Ευρωζώνης παραβίασαν το δικαίωμα του ελληνικού λαού στην τροφή ως αποτέλεσμα των μέτρων λιτότητας που απαιτήθηκαν από τα τρία Μνημόνια Κατανόησης (2010, 2012 και 2015). Με άλλα λόγια, τα πακέτα λιτότητας που επιβλήθηκαν στην Ελλάδα αντέβαιναν στο διεθνές δίκαιο των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων.

    Sabemos lo que tenemos que hacer para resolver la crisis climática: mantener el carbón, el petróleo y el gas bajo tierra. Pero la industria de los fósiles tiene un arma secreta para seguir cocinando el planeta: el Tratado sobre la Carta de la Energía (TCE). El Tratado está a punto de experimentar una enorme expansión geográfica, en África, Asia y América Latina, lo cual amenaza con obligar a más países a perpetuar unas políticas energéticas favorables a las grandes empresas.

    Los países de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC) se encuentran entre los más afectados por el sistema de arbitraje de inversiones, al ser blanco del 28% de todas las controversias inversor-Estado conocidas a escala global. La Argentina, Venezuela, México, el Ecuador, Bolivia y el Perú, en concreto, representan el 74% del total de demandas presentadas contra países de ALC. Los inversores han ganado en el 70% de los casos presentados contra países de ALC. Como consecuencia, los países de ALC ya han sido condenados a pagar a compañías extranjeras 21.807 millones de dólares estadounidenses, una suma que podría cubrir el presupuesto de salud y educación de Bolivia durante cuatro años completos.

    Report

    While medical cannabis is well accepted in Germany and small-scale possession is officially decriminalized, many cities are struggling with high levels of street dealing. A number of cities are pushing for different kinds of public "experiments" in legal distribution that would allow them to better control cannabis in their jurisdictions. Produced as part of a the "New Approaches in Harm Reduction Policies and Practices" project, this Country Report seeks to understand the drivers of German cannabis policy today, and the possibilities for its future.

    Report

    Report

    ¿Cómo podemos solventar las tensiones entre los enfoques actuales en materia de control de drogas y las obligaciones de los Estados con respecto a los derechos humanos? El marco internacional de de los derechos humanos especifica explícitamente que, en caso de conflicto entre las obligaciones contraídas por los Estados en virtud de la Carta de la ONU y sus obligaciones contraídas en virtud de cualquier otro convenio internacional, prevalecerán las obligaciones impuestas por la Carta. En un momento de auge de los mercados regulados de cannabis, es hora de reivindicar los principios del desarrollo alternativo, los derechos humanos y el comercio justo para garantizar un lugar legítimo a los pequeños productores en estos mercados lícitos.

  18. The EU and the corporate impunity nexus

    Report

    For decades, affected communities around the globe have been resisting the modus operandi of transnational corporations (TNCs) in their territories and workplaces and documenting systemic human rights violations and the track record of corporate impunity with their lives and their deaths. Corporate impunity is embedded in and protected by an ‘architecture of impunity’ that legitimises and legalises the operations of TNCs. This architecture has been established through free trade and investment agreements, the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the structural adjustment policies of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and other financial instruments and the aggressive push for public-private partnerships (PPPs). At the core of this architecture is the infamous investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system, a private arbitration system that allows TNCs to sue states whenever they consider that their future profits are threatened by new measures or policies aiming at improving social and environmental protection. Thus, it neutralises the function of the state, whose primary responsibility is to defend public  interest and protect the well-being of its citizens and the planet from corporate interests.

    Report

    Member states of the European Union and Schengen Area have constructed almost 1000 km of walls, the equivalent of more than six times the total length of the Berlin Walls, since the nineties to prevent displaced people migrating into Europe. These physical walls are accompanied by even longer ‘maritime walls’, naval operations patrolling the Mediterranean, as well as ‘virtual walls’, border control systems that seek to stop people entering or even traveling within Europe, and control movement of population.

  20. Levantando muros

    • Ainhoa Ruiz Benedicto, Pere Brunet

    Report

    Este informe revela que los estados miembros de la Unión Europea y el Espacio Schengen han alzado cerca de 1.000 km de muros, lo equivalente a más de seis Muros de Berlín, desde los años 90, con el objetivo de frenar la migración de personas desplazadas por la fuerza a Europa. Estos muros físicos van acompañados de los aún más largos “muros marítimos”, operaciones navales patrullando el mar Mediterráneo, así como los “muros virtuales”, sistemas de control fronterizo que buscan parar a las personas que intentan entrar en Europa, incluso aquellas que están viajando por el continente, y controlar el movimiento general de la población.
