Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) has 180 parties representing 89% of the world population. Tobacco industry fought hard in opposition to the treaty, preferring instead industry selfregulation
under free trade ethos. After establishing the FCTC regime, now there is a thrust to implement its provisions, monitor implementation and stigmatize non-implementation. If the tobacco industry is losing its battle to prevent FCTC from being such a threat, who is winning and how? Transnational Advocacy Networks efforts is winning by being able to convince the regime-makers as to the importance of the FCTC by successfully circulating, its knowledge, expertise and ideas.
