At the eve of 12th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation, Jeronim Capaldo will present the reform proposals he co-authored for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Deborah James and Sanya Reid Smith will share with us the demands for change articulated by the large civil society network Our World Is Not For Sale (OWINS). Helmut Scholz, Member of the European Parliament in THE LEFT group, will comment on what is at stake, before he travels to Geneva as a member of Parliament’s delegation to MC12. Will he witness an atmosphere of change inspired by the WTO’s new and energetic first-time female and first-time African Director-General Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala?
