Ending Modern Day Slavery: Towards an EU Import Ban on Forced Labour

Around 25 million people are estimated to be in forced labour around the world. The products they make often land in the European market, and so we unwillingly consume and contribute to this exploitation. But this should not be the case! The European Parliament has called several times for a new EU ...

Seeking Progress Towards Climate-Supportive Trade

Greening the EU trade policy is an absolute requirement to achieve the emission reduction targets the EU has given itself. Trade agreements shape the economic relation between countries for decades to come, decades during which both the EU and NZ economy will have to be profoundly transformed. We cannot afford business as usual.
