Our goal is a just and ecological world economy. To this end, we apply our expertise in international trade, raw materials and climate policy. With comprehensive research, we examine political processes, identify the problems of an unjust economic system and develop policy alternatives. Our team forges strong alliances with other organizations, social movements and citizens to reach our goals. We know that we are stronger together than we can ever be alone.
