Book launch “Feminism in public debt - a human rights approach”

28 May 2024

In the current international financial architecture where lending and borrowing shape economic landscapes lies an often-ignored narrative deeply intertwined with gender dynamics: sovereign debt. The new book "Feminism in public debt - A human rights approach" released in Spanish in September 2023 and co-edited by Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky and Mariana Rulli, asserts that debt is inherently a feminist issue, challenging conventional views on government indebtedness. Scheduled for English release in May 2024, the book provides a fresh perspective on sovereign debt, employing a feminist structural lens and primarily focusing on debt-distressed Latin American countries. It aims to illuminate the intricate connections between debt, gender, and human rights.

The European Network on Debt and Development and French Platform on Debt and Development invite you to launch of the book and to an interdisciplinary discussion with activists, experts and citizens to address systemic inequalities and work towards a more just and equitable global financial architecture.

This event will be live streamed. Interpretation available in French and English.
