Trade

Our Trade working group looks to build an alternative to international trade relations, based on food sovereignty and contributing to the struggle against the negative impacts of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and free-trade related policies.

The working group’s activities consist of virtual meetings, in-person meetings and mobilisations and actions, depending on the political landscape within Europe and internationally. The Trade working group is also heavily involved with La Via Campesina’s Trade Collective. This is particularly important given the international nature of the WTO, FTAs and other trade policies.
