    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.

  2. The Future is Public

    03 ဒီဇင်ဘာလ အသုံးပြု စကားစု - လအမည် အပြည့်အစုံ 2019

    The Future is Public report is about more than just numbers. A growing international movement is building democratic public services for the social, ecological and economic challenges of our time.

  3. Guarding the fortress

    • Ainhoa Ruiz Benedicto
    26 နိုဝင်ဘာလ 2019

    This report is set in a wider context in which more than 70.8 million people worldwide have been forcibly displaced, according to the 2018 figures from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) (UNHCR, 2019). Some of these have reached the borders of the European Union (EU), seeking protection and asylum, but instead have encountered policy responses that mostly aim to halt and intercept migration flows, against the background of securitisation policies in which the governments of EU Member States see migration as a threat. One of the responses to address migration flows is the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (hereafter Frontex), established in 2004 as the EU body in charge of guarding what many have called ‘Fortress Europe’, and whose practices have helped to consolidate the criminalisation of migrants and the securitisation of their movements.

    Distributed Cooperative Organizations (DisCOs) are a P2P/Commons, cooperative and Feminist Economic alternative to Decentralised Autonomous Organizations (or DAOs).

    DisCOs bring together the worlds of the Commons and P2P, Open and Platform Cooperativism, Distributed Ledger/Blockchain tech, and Feminist Economics together in a fresh, radical framework fit for addressing the challenges of our times.

  5. Le business de l'édification de murs

    • Mark Akkerman
    05 နိုဝင်ဘာလ 2019

    Trente ans après la chute du mur de Berlin, l’Europe est de nouveau célèbre pour les murs qu’elle érige à ses frontières. Cette fois, ce n’est pas tant l’idéologie qui la divise,  mais la peur des réfugiés et des migrants, qui font pourtant partie des personnes les plus vulnérables au monde.

  6. The Business of Building Walls

    • Mark Akkerman
    05 နိုဝင်ဘာလ 2019

    Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Europe is once again known for its border walls. This time Europe is divided not so much by ideology as by perceived fear of refugees and migrants, some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

    23 အောက်တိုဘာလ 2019

    Demandas multimillonarias que desangran a países con problemas económicos, corporaciones que invalidan las victorias logradas por quienes defienden el medio ambiente y enormes recompensas financieras para inversores que cometieron abusos contra los derechos humanos. Diez demandas entre inversores y Estados de todo el mundo, que se han presentado o se han resuelto desde 2015, demuestran que el ISDS se utiliza una y otra vez como arma empresarial contra el interés público. Este informe denuncia la verdadera esencia del régimen del ISDS a través de 10 casos recientes.

    19 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2019

    This report is based on on-going collaborative research between the Transnational Institute (TNI) and the Indonesian traditional fisher folk union, Kesatuan Nelayan Tradisional Indonesia (KNTI). For the past decade, Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) has become a popular policy tool to resolve conflicts over and in ocean space. Proponents claim that MSP can ensure a process that balances competing interests between different users of ocean space from large-scale extractive industries, to tourism companies to small-scale fishers.

  9. More Than A Wall

    • Todd Miller
    16 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2019

    This report examines the role of the world’s largest arms (as well as a  number of other security and IT) firms in shaping and profiting from the militarization of US borders. Through their campaign contributions,  lobbying, constant engagement with government officials, and the revolving door between industry and government, these border security corporations and their government allies have formed powerful border–industrial complex that is a major impediment to a humane response to migration.

  10. Más que un muro

    • Todd Miller
    11 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2019

    Este informe examina la historia del control fronterizo de los Estados Unidos y el fuerte consenso político a favor de la militarización de la frontera, que es anterior al Gobierno de Trump. Muestra cómo este consenso político ha sido forjado en gran medida por las mayores empresas de armamento del mundo (así como de algunas del sector de la seguridad y la tecnología de la información), que han logrado formidables ganancias con el crecimiento exponencial de los presupuestos gubernamentales destinados al control fronterizo.

  11. Multistakeholderism: a critical look

    10 စက်တင်ဘာလ 2019

    Multistakeholder approaches are becoming ever more dominant, shaping standards for products, setting the rules for global initiatives and increasingly entering every arena of global governance including the UN. What is the driving force behind these initiatives? To whom are they accountable? What are the implications for social movements seeking to challenge unjust power relations within states and globally?

    24 ဇွန်လ 2019

    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.

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

  15. International regulatory cooperation and the public good

    • Stuart Trew
    22 မေလ 2019

    This report focuses on the significant threats to precautionary environmental, labour, consumer and public health policy from regulatory cooperation and “good regulatory practices” chapters within the EU-Canada Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), US–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), and the currently parked EU-U.S Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

  16. Η Δημοκρατία δεν είναι προς πώληση Ο αγώνας για Διατροφική Κυριαρχία στην Ελλάδα την εποχή της λιτότητας

    21 မေလ 2019


    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.

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

    • Katie Sandwell
    17 မေလ 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?

    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.
