A workshop on the WTO Bali round outcomes was held on December 17, 2013.
It was co-organized by South Solidarity Initiative (SSI), Focus on the Global South, Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) and Third World Network.
The clear signal from the consultation was that there is a need to take the movement against the policies of the WTO to the larger public and involve movements, organizations, coalitions, trade unions, peasants and farmers organizations. Read a detailed analysis of the Bali negotiations, authored by the South Solidarity Initiative, Focus on the Global South and the Third World Network.
