Author

Ghai, Dharam; Hewitt de Alcantara, Cynthia

Description

The purpose of the paper was to set the stage for dialogue among roughly 50 participants drawn from the Caribbean, Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and North America, as well as specialists from various international organizations. Discussion was to be oriented in new directions, less around consideration of the macro-economic and welfare dimensions of adjustment than around the relationship between economic crisis and social change.
