The fellows and the staff of the Transnational Institute are saddened to hear that Fred Halliday has died. He was one of the most prominent experts on the Middle East and its place in international politics.
Dr. Walden Bello, Filipino economist and respected leading thinker in the alternative globalisation movement, will be visiting the Netherlands [insert dates here] and will be available for interview.
Bello’s visit coincides with the EU council meeting and is two weeks before the G20 summit in London. Bello clearly articulates the critiques made by social movements worldwide to current responses by the G20 to the financial crisis. He also lays out a vision for alternative policies that are rooted in economic, social and environmental justice.
