World Social Forum 2015

The African Forum and Network on Debt and Development (AFRODAD) in collaboration with its partners will hold a workshop on Averting a New Debt Crisis at the World Social Forum 2015 in Tunis. Jubilee South Asia Pacific Movement on Debt and Development (JSAPMDD), Jubilee Debt Campaign and the European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad) are among the joint partners. This workshop will look at the scale of the current lending boom to the global South, what is driving it, which countries and regions are most at risk, and what needs to happen to avert a new debt crisis. Sovereign debt burdens are on the rise in many countries across the global South.
