The EU-funded FESSUD project will close 5 years of research about financialisation of our economy. It will present its main findings and policy recommendations for a financial system better serving the economy, society and the environment.
FESSUD brings together expertise from 14 leading universities across Europe and South Africa and PLS as the only civil society organisation to look afresh at how the financial system affects the world around us. This project has studied the growth and impacts of the financial system in Europe and offers recommendations to make the financial system work for society, the economy and the environment and not – as has sometimes been the case – the other way round.
The FESSUD project targets a wide public going from policy makers to representatives of the business sector, through civil society, to academics and citizens from the EU and beyond.
A two-day event on Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development:
Tuesday 27 September will be dedicated to a reflection from a research perspective.
On Wednesday 28 September, we will open the debate from a policy perspective.
