  8. Feminist Realities

    Kirstie Crail
    02 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2020

    Our webinar Feminist Realities – Transforming democracy in times of crisis explored the ways the pandemic intersects with patriarchy, corporate power and a global division of labour that is both gendered and racialized. Can this crisis provide a window of opportunity to re-organize and shift power to build radical democratic systems that genuinely care for the environment and our collective well-being?

  9. States of Control

    Kirstie Crail
    26 သြဂုတ်လ 2020

    Our webinar States of Control: the dark side of pandemic politics focused on the securitization of COVID-19. Measures such as the expansion of powers for military, police, and security forces and increased digital surveillance are being rolled out with little or no democratic oversight. How can we prevent the normalization of these practices and ensure that COVID-19 doesn’t become a new milestone in authoritarian states of control?

  10. Juggling crises

    Cecilia Olivet, Bettina Müller
    25 သြဂုတ်လ 2020

    Peru, Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia and Guatemala are just some of the Latin American countries being hit by the investment protection regime in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Foreign investors are threatening to bring claims before international arbitration tribunals due to the measures states are taking to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. Arbitrators are refusing to accept states’ requests to postpone ongoing arbitration cases and are obliging governments to disburse millions to investors at a time when public funds are required for more urgent priorities. Once again, the current crisis reveals the perverse consequences of the investor-state dispute settlement system and the urgent need to break free from it.

  11. Haciendo malabares

    Cecilia Olivet, Bettina Müller
    18 သြဂုတ်လ 2020

    Perú, México, Argentina, Bolivia y Guatemala son solo algunos de los países de América Latina que están siendo impactados por el régimen de protección de inversiones en medio de la pandemia del Covid-19. Inversores extranjeros que amenazan con demandas ante tribunales de arbitraje internacionales por las medidas estatales tomadas para mitigar los efectos de la pandemia. Árbitros que se niegan a aceptar los pedidos de los Estados de posponer arbitrajes en curso, y que los obligan a desembolsar millones en momentos donde los fondos públicos tienen destinos más urgentes. La crisis actual pone una vez más de manifiesto las perversas consecuencias del sistema de solución de disputas inversor-Estado y la necesidad urgente de salirse del mismo.

  14. Annual report 2019

    11 သြဂုတ်လ 2020
    Annual report

    Dubbed the ‘year of protest’, 2019 saw millions of people take to the streets on every continent.

    There was plenty to protest. Deepening inequality, rising cost of living, autocratic governments, discrimination, and the concentration of wealth and power into fewer and fewer hands. Many protests were met with brutal repression, but this did not quell the fight for dignity and freedom. 

    TNI stood alongside and in support of these movements, as we have consistently done for all 46 years of our existence. We have provided research and logistical support and put forward proposals that can bring about social and ecological transformation. Read more.

  15. Cocaína colombiana: ¿Dónde estamos?

    Ricardo Vargas
    06 သြဂုတ်လ 2020

    Colombia sigue siendo el mayor productor de cocaína en el mundo. Aunque Estados Unidos es el principal destino de esta sustancia, se han abierto nuevos mercados en Europa y algunas partes de Asia y Oceanía. En los últimos cinco años, la producción de cocaína ha ido en aumento, debido al desarrollo agronómico y la optimización del uso de los precursores químicos. Ricardo Vargas analiza el panorama actual de la cocaína colombiana, los carteles de narcotráfico y las violaciones de derechos humanos bajo la política de erradicación de cultivos.
