    NI522 - China in Charge - November/December 2019

    Fear of a red planet

    It’s 1860 and the ‘century of humiliation’ is underway: China is forced to open up to the opium trade and Hong Kong has been handed over to London. British troops slaughter thousands and burn the emperor’s Old Summer Palace to the ground.

    Today it’s Britain that goes to Beijing cap in hand. A Chinese firm is putting almost £2 billion ($2.4 billion) into redeveloping London’s Royal Albert Dock, from where imperial ships once set off, and partly financing the UK’s largest infrastructure project, a nuclear power plant in Somerset. George Osborne, former chancellor, put it bluntly: ‘China is what it is. And we have to either be [there] or be nowhere.’

    NI521 - Who Owns the Sea? - September/October 2019

    How do you draw lines on water? How do you decide who can extract the sea’s riches and resources and where? Or can use it as a massive dustbin? Who has the right to assume dominion and restrict passage to others? To rule the waves, as the infamous anthem goes? The oceans have always been a zone of contention – and never more so than today.

    NI518 - Internationalism - March/April 2019

    When New Internationalist was founded in the 1970s, the world was divided into three camps: capitalist, communist and non-alligned. For the latter group, also called the Third World, internationalism was a way of making the world more equal. It took all sorts of forms, from Che Guevara travelling to Africa to help foment revolution to the establishment of United Nation's Committee on Trade and Development by 77 poor countries.

    That tradition is in tatters in our globalized world. In this issue of New Internationalist, we look at what can be salvaged to build a 21st-century internationalism.

    NI517 - Trade in Turmoil: A chance for justice? - January/February 2019

    In our January/February magazine we delve into the thicket of global trade – interviewing and consulting experts and campaigners from around the world. Our aim is not just to make sense of what’s going on, but also to dig into what’s missing from the blow-by-blow reporting in the media; to examine the underlying causes of the current crises; the important impacts of the free-trade system that just aren’t being discussed; and the implications for citizens in countries that aren’t powerful players on the world stage.
