Asia Europe Peoples Forum (AEPF12)

Fiona Dove speaking at AEPF

Prior to and in conjunction with ASEM12, the Asia-Europe People’s Forum (AEPF12) will hold its 12th meeting. The overall aim of the AEPF 12 is to understand and learn from struggles and resistance over the past two decades in Asia and Europe that have confronted and challenged neoliberalism, corporate-led globalisation and global capitalism in its various phases.

Bringing together representatives from social/peoples movements, journalists, academe and elected bodies in Asia and Europe, this Forum will reinforce regional and international solidarities and move forward our collective agenda.

Having the Forum in the weekend will also allow us to realise one of our objectives, make a direct link with the public and citizens’ initiatives in Ghent. The discussions and exchanges will result in an AEPF-Statement to be presented by AEPF-representatives at the beginning of the 2018 ASEM-summit.
