New Internationalist appeal

11 March 2017

Ever since the PSG was set up nearly 34 years ago, we have enjoyed a close relationship with the New Internationalist magazine. We have provided input for the magazine, as well as welcoming people from NI to our annual conference. NI, like many critical media organisations, is confronting financial pressures, and to overcome these it has just announced a bold new scheme by which readers can become co-owners. For details, see here.

All news

  • Historical Overview

    Over the past century Peru has suffered a series of autocratic governments and a civil war in which nearly 70,000 people died. Many of the country's ongoing political and social problems are a legacy of its somewhat turbulent past. 

  • Human Rights

    Human rights violations were widespread during the twenty years after the initiation of armed conflict in 1980. Efforts to convict perpetrators since the war's end have made only limited progress. Today, concerns remain over the treatment of those engaged in social protest, particularly against strategically important investment projects.

  • Climate Change

    Two important reports on the impacts of climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC ) Special Report on Emissions Scenarios and the Stern Review, place Peru as one of the countries that will be most affected by the effects of climate change.
