Regional & Local Development Work & Labour

The target is to bring together activists namely from trade unions, NGOs, Microfinance institutions, the social economy sector, and researchers in the field of labour and livelihood security together as well as decision makers in different public, non-governmental or private (corporate) organisations. Although globalisation powerfully shapes our context and reality, the focus of the congress lies less on the global or national but more on the meso and micro, i.e. the regional and local level, as there the changes and innovations develop and are effectively put into practice in the essential realm of the everyday life of the people. In the context of the failures of the institutions which were considered “too big to fail”, the congress will deliberate on inventing spaces for action designed to render development sustainable through transparent and accountable institutions for economic and financial inclusion, democratic governance, social peace and environmental wellbeing. You will find more information on the network in the annex and on its webpage: http://wwd.rldwl.uqam.ca/
