Description

This Conference comes in the wake of ongoing turmoil in credit systems and apparent global economy collapse, and is part of a continuing series of EITD Research interventions to promote dialogue on substantive financial, economic and political issues facing people in Cameroon and around the world. With the need for dialogue on the substantive issues so great and urgent, and the implications far reaching, the EITD Research State Budget Issues Conference holding in Yaounde will be the biggest ever, involving as many public policy stakeholders as possible. Over 1,000 delegates are expected to attend the Conference. Many more will share in its build up and outcome.

Join us at the Conference to help engineer an economy upturn and ensure it serves all. The Conference programme and call for papers welcomes theoretical and research-based contributions broadly related to themes and topics such as: Corruption, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Poverty Eliminating Economic Growth, Effects of Movements in Food Prices, Public Finances and Fiscal Rules, Aid and Debt Evaluations, Parliament and Budgets, Audit(s), Media Presentations and Public Interests.

Many around the world, and especially in countries such as Cameroon, appear condemned to lives of perpetual poverty, disease and early death or little hope of being born healthy! Nation states have to take their own democratic responsibilities seriously, both in procedure and substance. Every individual, organization or business has to understand this, and make it clear to political authorities at home and abroad, to ensure peace, stability and prosperity for all.

Our common future, as society that is free and prosperous, lies in the security of our meeting readily, and in the procedures and substance of our dialogues with one another, and not on our ability to pay a fee!
