ESCR-Net's Global Strategy Meeting 2016
More than 140 social movements, civil society organizations and advocates from 40 countries came together from 15-19 November 2016, to confront global systems that perpetuate inequality, impoverishment and dispossession, explore alternatives that ensure collective well-being and build a global movement to make human rights and social justice a reality for all
The Global Strategy Meeting was initiated by the Board of ESCR-Net in 2015, and advanced with the International Planning Committee: ACIJ, Argentina, CELS, Argentina, ANND, Lebanon, FIDA-Kenya, Kenya, FI, Switzerland, ILSB, Mexico, Kairos, USA, LRC, South Africa, NAFSO, Sri Lanka, Video Volunteers, India. It also benefited from the input of working group steering and planning committees.
This event was been made possible with the support of members in Argentina, including FOCO and FUNDEPS, as well as partnership with the Centro de Derechos Humanos - UBA. In addition to support from our existing donors, we are grateful for the support provided from Bread for the World and FIDH, as well as the resources raised by members to cover their costs.
