NEWS FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD

Should IBIS become a member of OXFAM? - Participate in the meeting "NGOs in future aid: Opportunities and Challenges".
IBIS considers becoming a part of the Oxfam International. In December 2013 IBIS' Board decided to initiate a study of the advantages and disadvantages of seeking membership of Oxfam International. This study will analyze weather the future of the NGO is within the greater global cooperation which is stronger on advocacy, promotion and development than the alliance cooperation with European organizations in Alliance2015, that IBIS has had for almost 15 years. Therefore IBIS invites for a presentation and discussion from the analysis made by Knud Vilby.
Knud Vilby will give a presentation and Lars Engberg Pedersen from DIIS will open the debate with his comments.
The meeting takes place on Monday March 17th at 16.00-18.30 at Vartov, Farvergade 27, 1463 København K.
Registration, more information on the meeting and the report "Navigating in troubled waters" by Knud Vilby can be found here.
