Go !Companies Beyond Profit?

Go !Debt and Structural Adjustment

Go !Economic Policies
Currently, economic polices summarize the main characteristics of the neoconservative system. They have been responsible for borrowing and updating conservative principles, previously thought obsolete, once again giving impetus to the expansion of a new wave of accumulation by the capitalist economy. The challenge is to make economic policies capable of redistributing revenues and wealth, (...)

Go !Fair Trade

Go !Finance for the Common Good

Go !From the WTO’s Setback in Seattle ... to the Conditions for Global Governance

Go !Growth and Sustainable Development
Overall sustainable development supposes that two concepts are called into question: 1) the pseudo law of "market self-regulation"; 2) the notion of "human insatiability" as the basis of "needs". A sustainable culture must give precedence to the fulfillment of "being" rather than to "having". All its facets should be made clear: cultural (there is no single system of sustainable (...)

Go !Health and its Issues in the Twenty-first Century
The current crisis of humankind manifests itself principally through the fact that a great part of its members suffer from, among other things, poverty, injustice, discrimination, inequality, lack of technologies and difficulties in accessing health services. Health is a fundamental factor of human development, and an health-centred analysis is thus essential, and can provide us with elements (...)

Go !How Can Companies Exercise Their Responsibilities?

Go !Precarity and Exclusion
An attempt to unite the "socially excluded" and the "socially accepted" who are determined to fight against a society that generates and trivializes precarious situations. Furthermore, to offer support in their working toward achieving a different society, where property, power, and knowledge are shared. Is there another way of apprehending business, the market and society? In any case, it (...)

Go !Production, Investment, and Technology

Go !Red Card for Tourism?
Tourism has numerous consequences on societies and environment. It is the sole human activity that leads us, in a massive way, for better and for worse, to a face-to-face encounter between the well-to-do populations of the North and the sometimes poor populations of the Southern continents, because of their beauty and climate, and often because of their preserved cultures as well. This (...)

Go !Solidarity Economy

Go !Solidarity Finance

Go !Tax Policies, Redistribution, and Social Welfare
Tax policy should be designed as an instrument for redistributing wealth within societies and ensuring social protection. At government level this means that defining economic policies in general should no longer be done to the advantage of financial markets, but as a function of social values decided democratically. Experiments such as participatory budgets are the sparks needed to set such (...)

Go !The Trade-union Movement at the Dawn of the Twenty-first Century
The Socioprofessional Network of Trade Unions of the Alliance for a Responsible, Plural and United World has tried to identify strategies and tactics that can modernize and improve the trade-union movement’s response to the challenge of globalization, precarious working conditions, and communication difficulties that can arise between trade unionists and members of other social movements (...)

Go !World Trade Organization
The World Trade Organization negotiations on agriculture resulted in increasing inequalities between the countries of the North and those of the South. Because it takes into account neither forms of production (sustainable or not) nor producers, because it encourages agricultural exports, the agreement favors intensive agriculture to the detriment of family farming. It is special and (...)
