Multiple Crises, Fiscal Systems and Human Rights: Submission to the Independent Expert on Foreign Debt, Other International Financial Obligations and Human Rights

Amnesty International submits this input in response to the call for contributions to inform the thematic report on “Multiple crisis, fiscal systems and human rights”, to be presented at the 78th session of the UN General Assembly. Placing it within the wider context of a global debt crisis this submission draws on a range of recent research carried out by Amnesty International. Based on this analysis it draws some overarching conclusions and makes a series of recommendations. These focus on the need to urgently address indebtedness and at the same time provide comprehensive social protection.
