The Fugitive Humanity of City Spaces

The emergence of a significant middle class – who demand increasing space for their accommodation – means that the urban poor are everywhere being constricted to a decreasing proportion of land. In these city spaces they exist as a ‘fugitive humanity’, writes Jeremy Seabrook.

The 'Old' Evils of Poverty, Hunger and Inequality

Growing global inequality presents a major obstacle in the fight against poverty. Redistributing resources more fairly requires a greater cooperation between governments that eschews the current ‘cut-throat’ nature of international free trade competition, says Justin Frewen.

The End of Poverty? Expert Panel Discussion at UK Screening

Expert panellists and film director Philippe Diaz discuss the structural causes of poverty and suggest possible solutions at the UK premiere of ‘The End of Poverty?’ on 12th December 2009. The event was coordinated by STWR and the British Film Institute (BFI).

The Movement of Movements: From Resistance to Climate Justice

Just as the 1999 Seattle protests against the WTO launched the global justice movement onto the world stage, Copenhagen may reveal a global civil society that has developed beyond the politics of resistance into a truly diverse, forward-looking force for change, writes Anna White.

The 'Tobin Tax' Battle Has Only Just Begun

Three decades after its inception, the ‘Tobin tax’ has finally entered the mainstream political debate. Campaigners must now ensure its primary purpose remains to redistribute finance away from the failed banking system and toward benefiting the world’s poor, writes Anna White.

Strategic Food Reserves: What Would Be Different This Time?

Implementing global food reserves should be part of a genuine multilateral response to the food crisis. A new Global Convention on Food Security could offer an institutional framework for the governance of food and agriculture, argues a presentation by Robin Willoughby.

The Global Health Debate

While the healthcare debate rages in the US, a broader discussion has been renewed on the international stage that envisions the universal goal of "health for all". The time is ripe for a global civil society movement to turn this vision into an international priority, writes Adam Parsons.

The World Seed Conference: Good for Farmers?

Rather than a push for techno-fixes and tightened intellectual property rights that characterised the recent World Seed Conference, we need a new paradigm in agricultural development that promotes cooperation, sharing and free-exchange of seeds, writes Robin Willoughby.

G20 on Track to Fail the World’s Poor

The financial crisis presents a rare opportunity to build a system of international finance that works in the true interest of the global public, but the G20 ministers seem intent on maintaining the unsustainable growth-oriented global economy of the past, writes Rajesh Makwana.

The Non-Aligned Movement: Renewed Relevance in a Time of Crisis

As poor countries are disproportionately affected by the financial, food, climate and security crises, the Non-Aligned Movement's call for greater international cooperation must no longer be drowned out by the rhetoric of the G8 and the G20, argues Rajesh Makwana.
