September 14, 2014 Roundtable Invitation
On behalf of Accountability Counsel, SOMO, CEE Bankwatch Network, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, we invite you to an event on the afternoon of September 17th in London. The event hopes to bring together civil society groups and staff of the world’s accountability offices (such as the CAO and Inspection Panel) for a discussion on how to learn from recent cases brought to these offices by people harmed by internationally-financed development projects. The “independent accountability mechanism” (IAM) staff have their own private annual meeting this week so will already be gathered in London; this is the second annual such CSO-sponsored event.
September 18, 2014 CSO Strategy Session Invitation
We would also like to invite you to an all-day CSO strategy session on September 18th in London to discuss where we are as a group in pressing for greater accountability in development finance and to strategize about how best to achieve our short- and long-term objectives.
More details on both events are to follow, but please mark your calendars and let me know if you have any questions.
