Manuel Perez-Rocha

Manuel Pérez-Rocha helps to coordinate the Networking for Justice on Global Investment project, as part of the IPS Global Economy Project. In this role, he works together with allies at the Democracy Center in Bolivia and organizations in several countries. Prior to that, he directed "The NAFTA Plus and the SPP Advocacy Project," as part of the Global Economy Project. He is a Mexican national who has led tri-national efforts to promote just and sustainable alternative approaches to North American economic integration for more than a decade.

Prior to moving to Washington, DC in 2006, he worked for many years with the Mexican Action Network on Free Trade (RMALC) and continues to be a member of that coalition’s executive committee. For the past several years, he has also contributed to the Alternative Regionalisms project of the Transnational Institute in Amsterdam, and worked as a consultant to Oxfam International on trade issues in the Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean region.

Manuel studied International Relations at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and holds a M.A. on Development Studies from the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) at The Hague, Netherlands.
