Overview

Quick Overview

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.

Back catalogue magazines to 2014 are available on request directly from New Internationalist - please email ni@newint.org

In this 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. And, in true New Internationalist fashion, this issue does not stop at reporting what is – but goes the extra mile to envisage how things could be with a 14-point plan on what a better, fairer, more sustainable trading system might look like.
