EPLO’s participation in the 2019 edition of the European Development Days
Organised by the European Commission (EC), the European Development Days (EDDs) is an annual two-day gathering of representatives of the international development community.
The focus of the 2019 year’s edition was ‘Addressing inequalities: building a world which leaves no one behind’. In this context, the European External Action Service (EEAS) asked EPLO to co-organise a high-level panel entitled ‘Power, Resources and Participation: Addressing inequalities for sustainable peace’.
The panel, which was moderated by EPLO Executive Director, Sonya Reines-Djivanides, brought together the Deputy Secretary-General of the EEAS, Christian Leffler; the Assistant Secretary-General and Director of the Bureau of External Relations and Advocacy of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Ulrika Modéer; the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of South Africa, Glen Mashinini; the Executive Director of Oxfam Mexico, Ricardo Fuentes-Nieva, and the Young European of the Year, Yasmine Ouirhrane.
