About us

STWR is an independent civil society organisation campaigning for a fairer sharing of wealth, power and resources within and between nations.

Through our research and activities, we make a case for integrating the principle of sharing into world affairs as a pragmatic solution to a broad range of interconnected crises that governments are currently failing to address – including hunger, poverty, climate change, environmental degradation, and conflict over the world’s natural resources. For an overview of STWR’s perspective on strengthening and scaling up all genuine forms of economic sharing, read STWR’s Primer on global economic sharing or visit our introductory web pages.

As explained in the report Sharing as our common cause, the principle of sharing is already central to diverse calls for social justice, environmental stewardship, global peace and true democracy. On this basis, STWR’s ‘global call for sharing’ campaign aims to promote the role that a call for sharing can play in uniting citizens and progressive organisations across the world in a common cause.

To help achieve the campaign’s overall goals, STWR has launched a sign-on statement to invite individuals and organisations to explicitly acknowledge the importance of sharing in political and economic terms, and commit to engage in this emerging debate through their work and campaigning activities. The ongoing campaign forms a key part of STWR’s organisational activities over the period ahead, and is supported by our broader research, writing and outreach work.
