The debt we owe the debt campaign | Jonathan Glennie 20.4.2011 Guardian: Environment
The Jubilee movement is special to millions of people who cut their campaigning teeth on it and learned from its success Last week I was at a leaving do for Stephen Rand who left the Jubilee Debt Campaign after 10 years as co-chair. It was a moment for a bit of nostalgia. Stephen is one of a number of people who have been with the Jubilee campaign since its beginning in the mid-1990s. People remembered how he got the first major charity, Tearfund, to send out a circular to its supporters in 1996 asking them to send money not to Tearfund, but to the Jubilee 2000 campaign. That was one piece of a massive jigsaw that made Jubilee one of the most important global movements for justice of our time. We chatted about the mass rallies in the late 1990s in Birmingham and Cologne, where a petition of 24m signatures was handed to the G8. We remembered the reconstituting of the campaign in 2001, and how it played a leading role in the Make Poverty History campaign, when more debt (this time ...

Gordon Brown calls for reform of global bodies including IMF and UN 20.4.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
Former PM sidesteps David Cameron's criticisms and dodges speculation about his ambition to lead the IMF Gordon Brown has called for the wholesale reform of the world's most powerful bodies, including the World Bank and United Nations, claiming they are unable to cope with the challenges of the 21st century. The former prime minister said these institutions were designed for another era, in the post-war years and the Cold War, making them ill-equipped to tackle modern crises. Existing bodies, he said, had specifically failed to meet the new challenge of climate change. "They were built for another age and need to be rebuilt for the new age," Brown said on Tuesday, amid intensifying speculation about his interest in heading the International Monetary Fund. He called for a new "global ethic" and international institutions capable of tackling climate change, African poverty and economic restructuring with a greater democratic mandate from the world's 192 nations. Existing institutions ...

IMF: In the running 20.4.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
Since the 1940s, an American has run the World Bank and a European has been managing director of the International Monetary Fund Since the 1940s, an American has run the World Bank and a European has been managing director of the International Monetary Fund. This gentleman's agreement is now supposed to have ended and if Dominique-Strauss Kahn does leave the IMF, a number of non-Europeans are being touted for the job. Trevor Manuel , ex-finance minister of South Africa is mentioned, although India will make a strong case for S Sridhar , the head of the Central Bank of India who was being talked about at last week's IMF meeting in Washington. An alternative would be Montek Ahluwalia , deputy chairman of India's planning commission but knows the way the IMF works after being the first director of its Independent Evaluation Office. Another contender would be Kemal Dervis , former head of the UN Development Programme, who as a Turk would garner support from the Europeans. Should the job ...
