About the conference
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
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.
Take part in shaping the future of Eurodad!
