In 2005 the G8 came to Scotland and announced “immediate 100% debt
cancellation” for the world’s most impoverished countries.
- What did this mean?.
- Has it happened?.
- and if it has happened… what difference is it making?
Deus Kibamba (Tanzania Gender Networking Programme)
Norbert Fiess (Deputy Director of the Centre for Development Studies, University of Glasgow, former economist at the World Bank)
Vicki Clayton (Co-ordinator of Jubilee Scotland)
But don’t just listen! After short presentations from the speakers, everyone will be invited to discuss and decide for themselves what they think of the progress since 2005.
Last year’s Debt Tribunal was facilitated by the Ken Yersel democratic
participation project. Ken Yersel will present back a report from last
year to help us see clearly how things have moved on.
