Our Work: By issue

Economic Justice

About this issue

Unfair trade practices, domestic subsidy policies and unregulated resource extraction industry result in the destruction of local economies upon which millions of livelihoods depend. As national economies are more and more integrated into the international economic system, wealth is being concentrated in fewer hands and people are being impoverished as they lose the capacity to sustain themselves.

Our Work on this issue

We work to enforce regulations on the extractive industry to prevent human rights abuses and environmental damage. We work on tax justice to tackle tax havens and prevent that countries are deprived from the revenue they deserve. We advocate for fair international trade agreements that benefit fairly the Southern and Northern societies and for regulating the powers granted to corporations.
