Inviting Scandal - DfID’s dangerous plans to expand its controversial private equity arm

December 2016

Our new briefing reviews recent CDC investments and shows how serious questions remain about its impact on poverty reduction. It shows that there is still little evidence to support its current development impact claims which are largely based on assumptions – rather than proof. It argues that dramatically increasing its size and influence is a premature and potentially dangerous move.

CETA update for Scottish activists - November 2016

November 2016

Welcome to November's update.

CETA is back from the dead. Last month we held our breath as Wallonia, one of Belgium’s regional parliaments, was able to block the trade deal from being agreed by the EU Council of Ministers. But Wallonia has been appeased for now at least, and so the trade deal moves to the European parliament for further consideration and a vote forecast for February next year. So now it is essential we turn all our efforts to our six Scottish MEPs and urge them to reject the deal.

Brexit Red Lines

September 2016

The decision to leave the European Union is the biggest political choice the UK has made in a generation. It has had serious knock-on effects for the UK’s political landscape, and has the potential to fundamentally change the future shape of the country’s politics. Unfortunately, some are looking to use the new situation to further roll back human rights, even threatening some of the key victories achieved by social justice campaigners in the twentieth century. Even the European Convention on Human Rights, which the UK has been part of since 1953, has been called into question.

Controlling corporations

September 2016

The power of multinational corporations is rapidly expanding and too often big business gets away with exploiting people, disregarding human rights and destroying the environment. But it doesn't have to be this way. Countries from across the global south have come together to push for a new treaty at the United Nations (UN) that could hold transnational corporations to account for corporate abuses under international human rights law.

CETA update for Scottish activists - July 2016

July 2016

With the uncertainty that a possible Brexit brings, this month's brief update looks only at CETA. We don't yet know how the negotiations of mega trade deals like TTIP and TiSA will affect Scotland - but this should become clearer over the coming months. What is more certain is that CETA will affect us, and there is still a chance to stop this Canada-EU trade deal. The next three months will be crucial for the campaign. Read this month's update to find out what you can do.
