Trade and Finance are at the heart of International Law and treaties like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) seek to cement corporate influence over national and international legislation at the cost of national sovereignty, health and the environment. Of particular concern to Dr. Fuller are the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) instruments enshrined in these treaties which give corporations the right to sue governments over violations, in effect overwriting the ability of states to apply the precautionary principle to protect their citizens.

Dr. Fuller has written extensively on the power politics involved in advancing these policies, as well as the measures taken by certain nations, particularly the so-called BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) to assert themselves as counterweights to existing institutions.
