The Edinburgh World Justice Festival

1st OCT - 17th Oct 2016 Migration: roots and responses

Edinburgh World Justice Festival

In the summer of 2005, while the G8 met in Scotland and made promises that have yet to be kept, a people’s movement was born in Edinburgh. Under the banner of “Make Poverty History” a quarter of a million people marched on Edinburgh’s streets calling for an end to man-made poverty through changes to a glaringly unjust global trade system and a suffocating debt burden. The following day the G8 alternatives conference was held. Since then, the Edinburgh World Justice Festival has continued to keep world justice issues on the agenda in our city.
