Who We are
The Economic Policy Working Group (EPWG) involves members from all regions—social movements, NGOs and academics—committed to making human rights and social justice a reality for all. Initially formed in 2004, the EPWG has collectively addressed issues related to trade, export credit agencies, austerity and development finance, while raising critiques of the wider economic system and elevating alternative models of development.
