Sovereign Debt at the Crossroads

Ann Pettifor

This chapter describes what is perhaps the most powerful innovation for achieving debt relief for the poor since the mid-1990s: the mobilization of civil societies. The Jubilee 2000 movement was extraordinary — uniting tens of millions of people and spanning nations and continents — all in the name of reducing the burden of developing-country debt. The movement's history and analysis of its successes and failures underscores the importance of civil society groups in the debate over debt and their potential role in promoting and implementing solutions.
