International Debt Observatory
The International Debt Observatory is born under the impulse of the Committee for the abolition of the Third World Debt (CADTM) and of the Left-wing Economists (EDI, Argentina) on January 28th, 2005 at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
The International Debt Observatory is a tool of exchange of knowledge, analyses and research on the problematic of the debt. Its aim is to provide precise analyses in most domains relating to problematic of the debt as well as a unique statistical database to the individuals and the organizations that study the mechanism of the debt and/or act for an alternative to the domination of the most powerful countries of the North.
The IDO does not especially substitute itself for the national and international campaigns on the debt. It rather stands at their sides as a resource to provide them of the detailed information and a recognized appraisal.
