Full programme

The foreign debt trap, unresolved consequences of the covid19 pandemic, increasing global militarisation, the climate emergency, the food crisis: these are all geopolitical tensions that although acknowledged by most people, neither have their concrete consequences at the core of the debate nor are they seen through the lens of these who mostly endure them. Thinking together about this global moment of crises from and with the Global South could be a modest but determined way to contribute to building bridges and alternatives for the peoples both in the South as in Europe.

This initiative aims to promote coherent development policies that look at these crises holistically and structurally, addressing their root causes and the actors that benefit from them—namely, transnational corporations and some states from the Global North. Structural intertwined crises call for structured and holistic responses. By offering perspectives coming from the Global South, this conference will expand our understanding of the crises and explore the different ways we can get out of them. We want to hear what the Global South says to think together alternatives and unite the movements around a solidarity pact for a better future for the peoples and the planet.
