Each year the NGO Committee conducts a Forum, based on the theme to be addressed by the UN Commission for Social Development at its annual meeting. The theme of this year’s civil society forum was “Civil society: Promoting empowerment of people to achieve the goals of social development”. The Commission and NGO forum were an opportunity for governments and civil society to explore effective policies and practices to eliminate poverty, reduce inequality, and achieve social integration and decent work for all.
The contribution of the FES New York office to these debates also included inputs from authors- Iñigo Errejón (pictured on the right), Andrew Ross and National Nurses United-who have contributed to our most recent publication, “The Future We the People Need”.
