Irish NGOs will focus on the future of development during EU Presidency

In the first half on 2013 Ireland will hold the EU Presidency. Development NGOs are also preparing for this period and formulated a briefing paper announcing that they will promote a nation-wide debate about the type of ‘Development’ the world needs. In the paper, published by DÓHAS (The Irish Association of Non-Governmental Development Organisations), the organisations point out that the debate about the future of our own country can no longer be separated from the future of the international community. Development Beyond 2015 has to be universal.
