Newsletter # 30
Welcome to newsletter # 30 of the Network for Justice in Global Investment (NJGI).
The year 2014 will be remembered for the enormous backlash against the investor-state dispute settlement mechanisms in bilateral investment treaties and free trade agreements. The issue has moved from obscurity to occupy a central place in major newspapers around the world and a subject of great controversy in multiple trade and investment negotiations. This year we will continue working to overturn these unfair rules designed by and for corporations.
We wish you a happy and productive year!
Your friends at the Democracy Center in Cochabamba Bolivia and at the Global Economy Project of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C.
Remember that more resources and analysis about the debate on global investment rules are available on our website. You can also follow us on Facebook here and on Twitter @JustNJGI.
