bilaterals.org is a collective effort to share information and stimulate cooperation against bilateral trade and investment agreements that are opening countries to the deepest forms of penetration by transnational corporations.
These agreements — "bilaterals", for short — are negotiated in secret, far from the reach of parliaments or people. They have tended to attract far less attention than World Trade Organization negotiations — and yet their provisions often go even further than existing trade liberalization commitments made at the WTO.
This website was initiated by several organizations and activists who felt the need for an open space on the Internet to share information and action ideas about bilateral deal-making. However, all organizations, networks or individuals active on these issues or wanting to get more involved are welcome to participate.
There are a number of ways that you can join us. Please see the How to participate section for more information.
You may also subscribe to the "bilaterals.org weekly" mailing list.
bilaterals.org is an open-publishing site using SPIP.
