  4. The EU and the corporate impunity nexus

    15 Octubre 2018
    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.

    Article

    Prof John Ruggie has shared his comments on the Zero Draft treaty on TNCs and human rights on this blog earlier this month. His core concerns are that the zero draft has not adequately deal with ‘scale’ and ‘liability’.

  7. La solidarietà verso i migranti e i rifugiati occupa uno spazio sempre più ristretto

    Report

    La “crisi dei rifugiati” europea (come viene definita da molti osservatori, tralasciando il fatto che si tratta in realtà di una Crisi dell’Europa come progetto politico), simbolizzata dall’immagine di Alan Kurdi, il bambino siriano di tre annitrascinato dal mare sulle spiagge turche, ha innescato un’ondata di solidarietà e azioni di disobbedienza civile sia da parte delle organizzazioni della società civile che da parte dei normali cittadini. Tutti questi sforzi facevano parte di un’ondata di compassione che ha visto l’organizzazione di convogli per recarsi nei centri di accoglienza per rifugiati, calorosi benvenuti presso stazioni ferroviarie tedesche e file in strada per offrire cibo e acqua a chi percorreva l’arduo cammino partendo da zone devastate dalla guerra in Siria e in altre parti del mondo.

    Er waart een zachte revolutie door de wereld. Een revolutie die de heersende opvatting van gisteren achterhaald verklaart: dat overheden efficiënte, goede en goedkope diensten het best garanderen door die (vaak voor een appel en een ei) over te dragen aan de privésector. Nee dus.

    Report

    Europe’s “refugee crisis” triggered a wave of solidarity actions by both civil society organisations and ordinary citizens. Their efforts were part of a wave of compassion, as people organised convoys to refugee reception centers, warmly greeted arrivals at train stations and lined highways to provide food and water to those making the journey from Syria and elsewhere. Just a few years later those same activists are treated as criminals and humanitarian search and rescue missions are criminalised.

    Trump to Host UN Meeting on Drug Policy: Veneer of Consensus Masks Deep Disagreement on Global Drug Policy

    Article

    The "Global Call to Action" document that the U.S. government is circulating—and heavily pressuring reluctant countries to sign—is explicitly “not open for negotiation.” Far from an effort at achieving mutual understanding and genuine consensus, it is an instance of heavy-handed U.S. “with us or against us” diplomacy.
