Britain’s counter terrorism policies do not work. As the threat of another war in the Middle East looms, we invite you to join us for an invigorating and engaging discussion on the impact of the War on Terror in Britain and how to promote a progressive, alternative approach to counter-terrorism policy.
Britain’s counter-terrorism policies do not work. They do not work for the British people, for the various communities in the UK whose experience of counter-terrorism has been one of stigmatisation and criminalisation, and they do not work for the people of the Middle East, South Asia and Africa whose human rights have been systematically violated in the War on Terror.
In drawing on core peace theorists and Michel Foucault, Seán Brennan has suggested a focus on biopolitics can innovate human agency to deliver the services required to regenerate communities emerging from violent conflict, by taking ownership of existing policies and resources and creating sustainable regeneration programmes that deliver basic human needs to marginalised and disadvantaged communities.
At this New York launch event for the The Globalisation of Countering Violent Extremism Policy report, the adoption of CVE by policymakers within international institutions will be analyzed and assessed from a human rights perspective.
The aim of the PPT is to identify and judge the chain of responsibility for human rights violations throughout the entire migration trajectory “from below”, based on the experience of the most involved and directly affected people, migrant and refugee organizations, and solidarity and human rights organizations. The inaugural session took place in Barcelona on July 6 and 7, 2017.
The Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) holds a special session to address Europe's policies on migrants and refugees. Fortress Europe has led to many disappeared persons and the death of thousands during their journey to reach the borders of southern and eastern Europe.
Trump, Brexit, Wilders, Le Pen, the so-called alt-right and extreme right: the politics of fear and hate seems to have become a worldwide phenomenon. How can we make sense of the exponential growth of the extreme-right in Europe and the US? Three experts on racism, the populist right and islamophobia will talk about the extreme political climate we are currently seeing and the prospects for a new politics of hope and solidarity.
The Duterte administration has refused to address and investigate the steep rise in extra-judicial killings, perpetrated by both uniformed personnel and unidentified ‘vigilantes’, whose signature modes of execution belie official claims that the victims fought back.
TNI is proud to welcome Budit in the Netherlands - he spent his youth here as a child refugee with his brother and political refugee parents and returned in his late teens to the Philippines and is now one of the inspiring leaders of a new coalition IDEFEND to counter-act the declining adherence to human rights and the rule of law.
This briefing updates the July 2016 report ‘Border Wars: the arms dealers profiting from Europe’s refugee tragedy’ . It shows that the European policy response to the refugee tragedy continues to provide a booming border security market for Europe’s arms and security firms, some of whom are involved in selling arms to the Middle East and North Africa and all of whom encourage European policies focused on keeping refugees out. It’s a win-win for the security corporations, but the cost is a deadly toll for migrants forced into ever more dangerous routes as they flee wars, conflict and oppression.
TNI is one of the major partners of the International Peace Bureau Congress on Military and Social Spending that will be held in Berlin. TNI will be organising workshops on the links between militarism and climate change, extractivism, racism and the rise of the homeland security industry.
