Eurodad’s International Conference 2017, co-hosted with ActionAid Netherlands, Both Ends, OIKOS, Oxfam Novib, SOMO, will take place this June 20-22 in Den Haag, The Netherlands.
In a world of extreme inequality, widespread poverty, and environmental fragility, the need for alternatives has never been greater. The global economic crisis proved the fragility of both the economic system and the model underpinning it.
Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals are unlikely to be achieved without significant changes to this global economic model and ideas and institutions that sustain it. Elections around the world are proving that there is widespread discontent across the political spectrum, and a willingness to consider radical alternatives.
The event will bring together leading civil society thinkers from around the globe working on issues including debt, tax justice, aid, private finance, the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and global monetary reform to discuss alternative policies for a sustainable world, better ways of financing global development and strengthening global economic regulation and governance.
