Trade is back on the policy agenda of civil society and Green parties throughout the world. But this time around the political battles are not centring on the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, as was the case at the turn of the millennium.

Nowadays, trade is high on political agendas because many industrialized and emerging countries are engaging in a competitive race to establish deep... Read more

Mais, si ces accords sont très attendus au niveau des budgets des pays africains grâce aux ressources financières qu’ils génèrent, ils ne rencontrent pas l’assentiment des acteurs de la pêche aussi bien artisanale qu’industrielle. Pour eux, il serait impensable de discuter des accords de pêche... Read more
