Utan er ingen skola

❤️ UTAN ER, INGEN SKOLA! ❤️ Ni är många som ser till att hela skoldagen fungerar. Som ger elever utrymme att vara sig själva, och läraren stöd i undervisningen. Som serverar Sveriges kräsnaste gäster så att de orkar vara nyfikna hela eftermiddagen. Ni som hanterar stök och taskigt klotter och gör skolan till en plats att trivas på. Som kommer först och går sist. Utan ert arbete blir det ingen skola! Läs mer här om hur Kommunal vill att skolan ska utvecklas.👇 kommunal.se/utaneringenskola

Crisis Narratives, Debt and Development Adjustment in the Caribbean

Don Marshall presents elements of his paper “Crisis Narratives, Debt and Development Adjustment: Contemplating Caribbean Small Island States Futures.” Don, Director of the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies at University of the West Indies: Cave Hill, questions the hegemony of mainstream economic indicators shepherded by the “neoliberal calculus of austerity adjustments.” He explores the effects on the Caribbean and its economic governance of international financial institutions and credit rating agencies, in the context of global financialization. Considering the implications for the dual Caribbean crises of debt and climate change, Don illustrates the need for meaningful policy space to enable governments to implement their agendas for equitable development.
