Save the Date: The IMF and Inequalities

Global Policy Forum - 8. Oktober 2019 - 16:23

The IMF has now recognized economic and gender inequality as issues that are core to its mandate, and claims it is playing key role in helping countries achieve SDG 10. However, evidence from the country-level suggests that IMF policy advice and loan conditions may in fact be exacerbating inequalities on multiple levels and dimensions (social; political; economic; generational). The event co-hosted by SID, CESR, ANND, DAWN, FES, GPF, TWN and Social Watch on 17th October 2019 will debate the tensions between IMF-advised structural adjustments and the need for systemic changes in monetary and financial governance at the global level to ensure governments can have fiscal and policy space to tackle inequalities and finance the SDGs.

Three Years Ago, The Battle of Mosul Began. This was the beginning of the end of the Islamic State’s “Caliphate”

UN Dispatch - 7. Oktober 2019 - 16:55

The battle of Mosul began exactly three years ago this month. Iraqi government forces and allied Kurdish militias with backing from the United States and other key international partners sought to re-take Mosul from ISIS, which captured the city two years earlier.

Mosul is the second most populous city in Iraq. The fighting that ensued was the most intense urban warfare since World War Two. tThe liberating forces went neighborhood to neighborhood, house to house, to recapture territory.

It took nearly a year, but eventually ISIS was evicted from Mosul in the summer of 2017.

In a new book, the journalist James Verini embedded himself with the liberating forces and the civilians displaced by the fighting. He witnessed the fighting and its impact first-hand which he masterfully recounts in his new book: They Will Have to Die Now: Mosul and the Fall of the Caliphate.

On the podcast James Verini discusses the significance of this battle to both the fight against ISIS and the overall politics of the region. We kick off discussing the long history of Mosul and events leading up to its capture by ISIS and eventual liberation by Iraqi and allied forces.

Pressemitteilung: Internationales Menschenrechtsabkommen - Bundesregierung muss sich zu Verhandlungen äußern

Global Policy Forum - 7. Oktober 2019 - 12:11

Am 14. Oktober beginnt in Genf die fünfte Verhandlungsrunde für ein UN-Abkommen zu Wirtschaft und Menschenrechten. Deutschland hat bereits angekündigt, sich an den aktuellen Verhandlungen nicht inhaltlich zu beteiligen. Aus diesem Grund fordert die Treaty Alliance Deutschland – ein breites Bündnis aus 27 zivilgesellschaftlichen Organisationen – die Bundesregierung und die EU auf, die Blockade zu beenden und tätig zu werden. Am heutigen „Tag der menschenwürdigen Arbeit“ rufen die Organisationen dazu auf, durch konstruktive Beteiligung an den Verhandlungen dafür zu sorgen, dass auf internationaler Ebene verbindliche Regeln zum Schutz von Menschenrechten und der Umwelt in globalen Produktionsverhältnissen geschaffen werden.
