Deglobalisation is the flagship program of Focus. Arising out of a felt need to articulate alternatives to neo liberal globalisation and capitalism, it spans practically all the Focus programs. It has 4 main components: Trade, Finance, Alternative regionalisms and Critical Discourse on Alternatives.
In the deglobalisation program our priorities are: monitoring the financial crisis and the policies of International Financial Institutions, finding alternatives to free trade and building alternative paradigms for sustainable development.
