The INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON GLOBALIZATION is a research, advocacy and action organization, founded in 1994, focused on the impacts of dominant economic and geo-political policies. Led by an international Board of scholars and citizen-movement leaders from ten countries, IFG collaborates with environmental, social justice, and anti-militarism activists, seeking secure models of democracy and sustainability, locally and globally.
IFG convenes private strategic seminars, large public education events and Teach-Ins, and publishes books and reports. It has also generated effective public protest actions, as in Seattle, 1999, against the WTO. Current campaigns focus on: 1) The rapidly growing inequities and plutocratic controls of all prevailing global economic policies and practices, and, 2) the recently announced shifts in U.S. policy, “The Pacific Pivot”, toward advancing militarism, global corporate trade dominion, and environmental catastrophe for Pacific peoples and nations.
