The Alternative Information & Development Centre, the Asian Peoples’ Movement on Debt and Development, Iglesias y Minería and the Justiça nos Trilhos will be hosting a webinar on Understanding Illicit Financial Flows from the Perspective of Workers and Communities in the Global South.
Corporate corruption, financial crime, and profits stashed on tropical islands – these may seem like distant problems, but they have major impacts on workers and communities across the Global South. How can we understand these issues through the lens of a mineworker, a small-scale farmer, or a civil servant? How are they relevant to struggles for better wages, local development, and quality public services? And what can be done to combat corporate power from below? This webinar is an introduction to these topics for non-experts.
In the Global South Project, organisations such as Justiça nos Trilhos, the Asian Peoples’ Movement on Debt and Development, and the Alternative Information & Development Centre have been grappling with these questions while building and support the capacity of popular formations to fight for corporate accountability and economic justice.
In 2022, they hosted the first Global School, an event which serves as a platform for delegates from trade unions, community organisations, and activists from across the Global South to engage with issues of corporate tax and wage evasion, exchange strategies and ideas for resistance, and foster South-South solidarity in the face of growing precarity and repression. This virtual event is aimed both at delegates to the Second Global School as well as the general public.
