Briefing note on Commissions, Committees, Campaigns and Working Groups
Following the recent XXIV Congress held in South Africa last September, the Socialist International will be holding the first meeting of its Council in Cascais, Portugal, on 4-5 February. Bringing together leaders and delegates from the SI family worldwide, as well as specially invited guests, the event will be hosted by the SI member party in that country, the Portuguese Socialist Party.
Under the main heading “The World Economy: Our Vision for Growth, Jobs and Sustainable Development”, the Council’s agenda will address the following aspects in three Panel discussions: “The Eurozone Crisis: From here, which way forward?”; “Emerging and Developing Economies in an ‘Out of Crisis’ Strategy”; and “Multilateral Institutions and other International Actors in the Search for Fair and Sustainable Answers”.
Further to these debates, the Council will decide on the establishment of special SI Commissions and the statutory, regional and thematic Committees, as well as Campaigns and Working Groups for this inter-congress period.
