(In)Disputable Public Debt, discussion with Nathan Legrand
The Centre for the Politics of Emancipation, the Social Centre “Oktobar” and transform! europe organised this discussion with Nathan Legrand, a member of the international network Committee for the abolition of illegitimate debts (CADTM) on the - seldomly posed - question of repayment of public debt.
What brought the state to take on continually increasing debt? For what political choices and social interests has the debt been contracted? Was it possible or necessary to make different choices? Who are the lenders? - These and many more questions are being discussed.
The event (7 Dec. 2018, Belgrade) was part of the Studies of Socialism programme, which the Center for Politics of Emancipation organised during 2018 with the support of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung and transform! europe.
