  2. The Battle for a New World

    • John Feffer (ed)
    03 Diciembre 2019

    The far right is increasingly active globally—at the level of governments, through civil society, and in the digital sphere. Their political parties are cooperating across borders, their anti- democratic actions are undermining the rule of law, their attacks on “globalists” are eroding the efficacy of international institutions, and their racist memes are spreading throughout culture. According to the 80 academics, researchers, and activists interviewed in this report, this threat to democracy and internationalism is urgent.

    24 Octubre 2019

    Delegates to the Our Oceans conference are gathering to discuss ocean sustainability, but there’s a big problem: their proposals will only sanitize continued resource extraction and environmental and ecological degradation.

  4. Opciones de comercio (más) justo para el mercado de cannabis

    • Martin Jelsma, Sylvia Kay, David Bewley-Taylor
    09 Octubre 2019

    Los cambios políticos ocurridos en los últimos cinco años han reconfigurado dramáticamente el mercado del cannabis. No solo ha habido un boom sin precedentes en el mercado medicinal sino que, siguiendo los cambios políticos en muchas jurisdicciones, un número creciente de países también se están preparando para la regulación legal del uso no medicinal. Tales movimientos son impulsados por el reconocimiento de la inefectividad probada de las políticas represivas durante décadas, que han acarreado graves consecuencias negativas y apuntan a proporcionar un amplio rango de beneficios en términos de la salud y los derechos humanos. Sin embargo, también hay serias preocupaciones acerca del despliegue de las dinámicas de mercado.

  7. The Transnational Institute supports the Global Climate Strike

    24 Septiembre 2019

    The climate crisis is a manifestation of the systemic, capitalist crisis. We demand governments tackle the climate crisis by ending corporate power, facilitated by the trade and investment regime, that has long destroyed livelihoods and communities.

    This corporate impunity has led to the wholesale looting of the biosphere, authoritarian responses and worsening social, political and environmental conflicts, particularly in the Global South.

    Når magt vokser som ukrudt: Virksomhedsfusioner og kampen for vores madsystem

    • Katie Sandwell
    17 Mayo 2019

    Gigantvirksomheder har taget kontrollen over vores mad. I løbet af de sidste to år har disse virksomheder arbejdet på at fusionere, så de bliver til blot fire enorme virksomheder. Jo større disse virksomheder bliver, desto sværere er de at kontrollere, og jo mindre kontrol vi har over dem, desto sværere er det at opbygge et alternativt madsystem; et madsystem, som flere og flere efterspørger. Nemlig et madsystem, der anerkender menneskers værdi, har respekt for planeten og leverer og sikrer anstændigt og værdigt arbejde. Hvordan skete det, og hvad kan vi gøre ved det?

  14. As the world meets to discuss ISDS, many fear meaningless reforms

    Alexander Beunder, Jilles Mast
    05 Abril 2019

    This week, representatives of around 100 countries are meeting in New York to talk about investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS). ISDS is a legal instrument that multinationals can use to sue governments for billions. External experts and observers fear that the new negotiations will amount to ‘old wine in new bottles’. They believe that those who benefit from this instrument (powerful states and top lawyers from the ISDS sector) are controlling the debate.

    • Martin Jelsma, Sylvia Kay, David Bewley-Taylor
    02 Marzo 2019

    Policy changes over the past five years or so have dramatically reshaped the global cannabis market. Not only has there been an unprecedented boom in medical markets, but following policy shifts in several jurisdictions a growing number of countries are also preparing for legal regulation of non-medical use. Such moves look set to bring a clear range of benefits in terms of health and human rights. As this groundbreaking Report, highlights, however, there are also serious concerns about the unfolding market dynamics.
