Το Advanced Media Institute αναπτύσσει δυναμικά το πρόγραμμα Citizens for Financial Justice

Citizens for Financial Justice

The “Citizens for Financial Justice” (C4FF) programme, implemented by the
Advanced Media Institute, focuses on Greece and Cyprus, two countries that
were affected by the debt crisis disproportionately in relation to their size.
Among other things, the programme aims to highlight public and private debt as
an eminently antidemocratic agent of servitude and inequality. Within this
framework scientific research, popularized media, dialogue workshops and short
documentaries will be used. The results will be communicated in the two
countries and abroad, addressing the younger generation and social groups
affected by the crisis. In parallel, collaboration networks with other international
organizations will be built, always in cooperation with the stakeholder of the
DEAR programme, including Eurodad.

Aims

The basic aim of C4FF is to promote the Millenium Goals of the United Nations to
tackle poverty, as well as to highlight and advance alternative solutions for the
management of public and private debt with respect for human rights, such as its
full or partial write-off, a proposal that has been gaining significant proponents
throughout the world.

Participation by students of AMI, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the
Open University of Cyprus enhances the venture, and the results will be
incorporated in the educational processes of the above institutions, thus
constituting a knowledge base of critical importance.

The primary aim of Advanced Media Institute (ΑΜΙ) is the deepening and rationalization of public discourse. In cooperation with Christian Aid, an international organization dedicated to tackling poverty and inequality, AMI documents and highlights the role of the debt crisis in spreading poverty and undermining democracy.
