CALL FOR APPLICATIONS STUDY WEEK – DEADLINE NOVEMBER 5TH 2021
The Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND) together with the Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship and Third World Network launches the call for applications for 2021 study week on macroeconomic, trade, investment and development policies.
Growing inequality, lack of economic justice and the continuous trend towards privatizing, dismantling of public services and the role of the state is under spotlight globally. The need for reversing policies, building back better and leaving no one behind in line with the commitments undertaken through the adoption of the Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals are all crystal clear. On the other hand, understanding key themes of free trade, investment, development, debt, tax, social protection, the right to health and education and many others by civil society to engage in better informed advocacy at the global, regional and national levels for advancing rights based social and economic policies is more vital than before.
