Eurodad – Glopolis International Conference 2013

Eurodad’s biennial conference “Debt, finance and economic crisis: consequences and solutions” has been a very inspiring event. Co-organised with a Eurodad  member, the Czech think-tank Glopolis, from June 3 till June 6 in Prague, the conference brought together leading civil society thinkers from around the globe working on issues ranging from debt, tax justice, aid and private finance to the international financial institutions and global monetary reform.

With almost 150 participants from 40 countries – including 33 participants from the Global South – the three-day event provided a great space for inspiring discussions about solutions to the current public/private debt crisis, and joint strategising on crucial issues related to finance and development. Video/audio and social media were used in order to reach colleagues and allies who could not be there in person, and to give all the participants a chance to catch up on the parallel workshops they could not attend. Further information including video and audio for all three days is available here
