Trade Bill: Liam Fox MP, Secretary of State for International Trade’s statement fails to give MPs a ‘meaningful say’ over post-Brexit trade

July 2018

Liam Fox MP, the Secretary of State for International Trade, made a statement to the house on Monday 16 July, on a transparent and inclusive future trade policy. The fact that he made such a statement is welcome and overdue, however his proposals largely leave the status quo unchanged. Powers currently being held by European institutions will be returned to the UK after leaving, but rather than transferring them to Parliament they are being retained by the executive, creating a democratic deficit.

Briefing: Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza

June 2018

The humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip is worsening daily, with over one million Palestinians living in devastating poverty and some of the highest unemployment rates in the world. This poverty is in large part due to the illegal blockade on the Gaza Strip imposed by Israel. The UK must take action to hold Israel to account for its violations of international law, including its illegal blockade and military attacks on civilians.

Briefing: military detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities

February 2018

Israel may be the only country in the world that automatically prosecutes children in military courts that lack basic and fundamental fair trial guarantees. The arrest and detention of Palestinian children is part of a wider context of violence, militarised repression, and deprivation of human rights that is the cornerstone of Israel’s occupation.

Back to Basics: Progressive Trade Deals

February 2018

When the UK leaves the EU it will be in charge of its own trade policy for the first time in more than 40 years, so trade is set to be a hot topic for years to come. We teamed up with CLASS, Global Justice Now, the University of Warwick and the Trade Justice Movement to create this expert guide which goes back to basics on trade. It explains the dangers of modern trade deals and what we should be looking for in a progressive trade agenda.

Briefing: effect of Israeli demolitions on Palestinian communities

December 2017

Palestinian communities in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) are at imminent risk of forcible transfer at the hands of Israeli authorities. Thousands have already been displaced, and the education and livelihoods of even more effected, by demolitions throughout the years. The demolition of Palestinian structures violates numerous elements of international humanitarian law, including the prohibition of forcible displacement, a war crime.
