Trade has always been part of society and always will be. But trade deals and trade rules nowadays are no longer so much about what most people think of as trade. Instead, they are often about giving huge new powers to big business, affecting every aspect of society from the public services to online privacy, from climate action to food standards.
We are campaigning to ensure trade deals work for people and planet. We are doing this by fighting for parliament to have a meaningful say over trade deals, challenging high risk UK trade deals and calling for an end to corporate courts.
