Demystifying Bretton Woods institutions’ rhetoric on public services

Drawing on the specific case of IMF and World Bank’s response to the multiple crisis triggered by the pandemic, a journal article shows that there is a discourse-practice disjuncture in the Bretton Woods institutions approach to public services as they continue to favour austerity and market-oriented solutions for the delivery of public services. The article therefore seeks to demystify the institutions rhetoric and demand the adoption of a different way of understanding public services, and social policy more broadly.

Joint letter calling for an end to discrimination in the EU

Almost 100 civil society organisations have written to EU leaders regarding the unacceptable and disrespectful behaviour of a member of the European Parliament at an Agora event at the European Development Days (EDDs) hosted by Eurodad and Counter Balance. In fact, the reaction of Mr. Bütikofer MEP to the concluding remarks of the host, Ms Jean Saldanha, the Director of Eurodad was very disrespectful. This unacceptable behaviour is aggravated by the fact that Ms Saldanha is a woman of colour. While this letter is based on this one instance of misconduct, it reflects a systemic pattern of behaviour that is not isolated to one individual or EU institution and that should be addressed by the European Commission in light of its commitment to achieve a ‘Union of equality’.
