The Context. The primary purpose of the SCNAT program has been to promote compliance with the ABS princi- ples by the research community. Awareness-raising and capacity building are essential to this end. The ABS team developed a code of conduct3 and elaborated a strategy for awareness raising. To ease the negotiations of contracts on Mutually Agreed Terms, it developed model contract claus- es tailored to the needs of both providers of genet- ic resources and non-commercial users seeking access. Such instruments are deemed important for ABS implementation and compliance and are mentioned in the Draft Protocol.4
The Context. The intensity and the duration of international crises have significantly increased in the last years, threatening the accomplishment of develop- ment goals of the Agenda 2030. The German Government has responded to this challenge by expanding its political priority towards greater engagement in fragile contexts and it has been translated by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in projects that focus on the importance of preventive action and the need to consist- ently orientate development cooperation towards peacebuilding. This priority has been transferred to an increased number of projects/pro- grams that are operating in a fragile context as well as into the consistent formulation of objectives and goals for intervention. KfW Development Bank (KfW) has responded to this challenge by expanding its work in fragile contexts into a core competency along with developing the instru- ment of the Framework Agreement (FWA) for preparatory interventions. FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT AS NEW INSTRUMENT The FWA is a new instrument of KfW for the procurement of project pre- paratory studies and assessments in those countries characterized by crisis and fragility. This particular setting required a change in orientation for the Financial Cooperation (FC), which needed to surpass the “traditional” pro- ject cycle and newly adapt to a complex context via streamlining measures. Therefore, KfW has conceived of this new instrument for the preparation and early implementation of projects/programs characterized by a high term of flexibility and adaptability to the specific challenges enabling the provi- sion of standardized high quality information for decision making processes that lead to efficient and sustainable implementation. The foundation for an efficient and sustainable project/program is laid in its identification and preparation. It is therefore essential to create a solid background comprised of comprehensive analyses of social, economic, legal, cultural, educational and political aspects with the involvement of stakeholders and partners that maximize the sense of collective ownership and sharing. The aim of the FWA, as a new instrument of KfW, is to create the informational background for efficient and sustainable implementation of the financed project/program to achieve the goals of the Agenda 2030. In a challenging scenario characterized by a precarious situation of the target groups, fast-changing conditions and the need to quickly comm...
The Context. 2.1. Why is this FTA different from the rest? The Free Trade Agreement with the United States is different from other trade agreements for two reasons. First, it is a third generation agreement5. Despite their name, third generation bilateral free trade agreements have nothing to do with the trade, nor are they free or do they promote 'freedom’ of exchange in the broadest sense. Third generation free trade agreements, in line with the Chile- USA FTA, are about rules and, above all, the commercial interests of the United States. This agreement therefore regulates the 'rules of the game' which considerably limits the autonomy of public policy. The second reason this treaty is different is because we are dealing with the USA, the only super power, with perhaps the greatest military and economic power of any superpower at any time in history. This means that the commitments established within the FTA will be very difficult to alter, making the agreement a solid and credible commitment in the future. The Free Trade Agreement with the USA involves profound commitments in public policy, which further reduces the ability of the Chilean authorities to modify the current economic development strategy. Therefore, the decision by the current government to accept new restrictions upon its freedom of action in economic policy and international integration, constitute a bet in favor of the status quo, and a commitment with the neoliberal economic model. Therefore the FTA cannot be analyzed without considering the Chilean economic model nor the strategic interests of the United States in the region.

The Context. Bangladesh is still struggling to overcome its long authoritarian past. The flaws in the human rights environment in Bangladesh are relatively well known: laws are inadequate; enforcement of good laws is poor; some agents of the state actively abuse rights; and few individuals are aware of their rights or are in a position to defend them. Citizens tend to fear the state and to seek redress on an individual or case-by-case basis, rather than as groups or on a systemic basis. A broad range of socio-political and economic interests are arrayed against the reform of laws and their enforcement, either overall or with regard to particular rights issues, and they appear to be more linked together than interests supporting human rights. Thus, the flaws are systemic.
The Context. The format of modern international businesses To make sense of the ‘modern, ambitious’ FTAs and IIAs (International Investment Agreements), it is necessary first to understand how TNCs are organised and being reorganised in the contemporary world of free movement of capital and ‘flexible’ labour markets. At the risk of generalisation, modern international businesses are characterised by some or all of these eight features: 11 xxxxx://xxxx.xxx/XxXX 12 Xx.xxxxxx.xx. (2017).
