Debate on Global Trade Reform: EU and US NGO Advocacy for Social Justice Anti-globalization activists have been critiquing the Global Trade Regime for over a decade, arguing for greater consideration of environmental issues, human rights and sustainable development. The strongest advocacy has been targeted at the powers of the Global North: the US and the EU. This debate brings together NGO advocates from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss Fair Trade & Social Justice Advocacy today: what policies and institutions are being critiqued in the US and the EU, and at the international level?; what are organizations, coalitions and networks that are active in advocating changes to the status quo global trade regime?; how do the two NGO advocacy approaches compare and contrast, and what may explain any differences? are greater advances being made in one system over the other?; and, to what extent are advocates in the Global North working together and how might they do so more effectively?
