9. Cancel Unjust Debt

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that debt cancellation is an essential prerequisite for ensuring a more equitable sharing of global financial resources, and the absolute and unconditional cancellation of unjust debts should constitute an urgent priority for the international community.

5. Increase International Aid

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that there can be no justification for advanced economies redistributing so little of their national incomes to assist those living in extreme poverty around the world, and presents the need for a much more generous vision of international aid.

The State of Debt

Thirty years of debt crisis have devastated livelihoods across the world. Debt cancellation finally released some countries from one debt trap, but the First World Debt Crisis shows yet again why reckless lending and borrowing need to be governed and controlled, says a report by the Jubilee Debt Campaign.

Alternatives to Debtors' Prison

Under the current system, sovereign debt is primarily the responsibility of the borrower, regardless of reckless lending practices and the impact of repayments on ordinary citizens. Introducing an international insolvency regime is an important step toward a fairer global financial system, says a report by Jubilee Australia.

Real Aid 3: Ending Aid Dependency

Over the past decade, there has been a sharp drop in aid dependency among some of the world’s poorest countries. If more donor governments delivered good quality, untied aid, dependency could become a problem of the past, says a report by ActionAid.

The European debt crisis closely resembles the experience of many developing countries over the last thirty years, with private banks’ reckless lending practices being paid for by the public. Now is the opportunity to fix the system and bring about debt justice, says a report by Jubilee Debt Campaign.

Due to the global financial crisis, a broad range of countries are experiencing increased and critical levels of sovereign debt. The principles and procedures of domestic insolvency should be applied to sovereign states in order to reach fair and sustainable outcomes, says a report by Erlassjahr and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
