In partnership with the Moynihan European Research Centers, the TNGO Initiative presents:
Debate on Global Trade Reform: EU & US NGO Advocacy for Social Justice
Dave Tucker, Trade Campaign Officer, War on Want, U.K.
Gawain Kripke, Director of Policy & Research, Oxfam America

060 Eggers Hall
This debate brings together transnational NGO advocates from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss Fair Trade & Social Justice Advocacy. What policies and institutions are being critiqued in the the US and the EU, and at the international level? What organizations, coalitions, and networks are active in advocating changes to the current global trade regime? How do the two NGOs represented compare and contrast and what explains their differences? Are greater advances being made in one system over the other? To what extent are advocates in the Global North working together and how might they do so more effectively?
Join us for this interesting debate and discussion!
