Social Watch rejects expanding role of IMF, World Bank, G-20

 Social Watch held its Annual Assembly in Accra, Ghana’s capital. The meeting organized once every three years attracted over 100 participants from 60 countries (both developing and developed) and explored the systemic crisis laid bare by the global financial crisis and alternative solutions to it, writes *Kwesi W. Obeng.

Social Watch, the international network of citizen’s organizations engaged in the fight against poverty, equitable distribution of wealth and realization of human rights, has held its 4th General Assembly in Accra, Ghana’s capital.

            The meeting, the first to be held in Africa since Social Watch was formed in 1995, was on the theme ‘People First: Social Watch’s response to the global crisis’. The Assembly which is a ‘space for reinforcing the sense of belonging to strengthening the network’s identity and unity’, examined the implications of the systemic crisis on human, gender and social rights and proffered alternative solutions to these global challenges.
