On Friday 3 October 2014, the seminar ‘Shared Responsibility in Partnerships among International Institutions’ will be held in Amsterdam.
The seminar will explore whether and on what grounds partnerships between international institutions (involving institutions such as the World Bank, the IMF, the WHO, the OECD and the European Union) may result in a shared responsibility between the participating institutions and/or other involved actors.
As little is known on the practice of such partnerships, a key aim will be to map the relevant practice of partnerships, and to confront that with international principles of responsibility and accountability of international organisations.
See the programme here. See here for the background and aims of the seminar.
The capacity of the venue is limited. If you wish to attend the event, please send an email to Iona Tjiong at: firstname.lastname@example.org before 5 September 2014. Please indicate your full name and affiliation.
