Eurodad International Conference

Alternative policies for a sustainable world
3-4 June 2019

About the conference

Eurodad’s International Conference 2019, co-hosted with Ekvilib Institute and supported by SLOGA platform, Focus and EnaBanda will take place 3-4 June in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The conference will be followed by the Eurodad General Assembly and Strategy Review Workshop on 5 June. 

As citizens and social movements are taking to the streets around the world to call for change, discussions about how to reverse growing inequalities, overcome poverty and tackle climate change are gaining ever more prominence. 

A decade after the start of the global financial crisis, governments continue to ignore the lessons learnt, reforms to the global system remain piecemeal and power imbalances rest untouched.

Increasing economic justice and mobilising the necessary financing for development are vital parts of the solution but despite the commitments made by world leaders, we still lack the necessary action.

At the Eurodad International Conference 2019, leading academics, practitioners and global civil society experts will collectively analyse the state of the global economic system, discuss the dominant governance structures, and review flows of funding to and from the world’s poorest countries. With this in mind, we will discuss how we can transform the system and create the change we need.

The conference will be held in Slovenia and we will take the opportunity to address how the aforementioned issues manifest themselves in the Eastern and South East European region, as well as discussing how the region can actively contribute to tackling global challenges.
