The announced measures imply the violation of social and economic rights of broad sectors of the population and will exacerbate impoverishment and a social crisis that will be difficult to recover from. This type of adjustment cannot be presented as the only possible path.
Narrated by journalist Noelia Barral Grigera and with the participation of analysts, social activists, and experts in economics and politics , among others, CELS is launching a podcast series on Argentina’s external debt. In six episodes, which will be available on Spotify, we delve into what debt is, its scope, and why it is important to understand the tangible consequences it has on fundamental rights such as work, health, and education.
Argentina will be reviewed in the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, January 23. It will have to report to its peers on compliance with its international commitments on human rights matters. CELS, along with other organizations, produced reports as prior contributions for the assessment and recommendations to be produced by this mechanism. We will also be present at the session in Geneva.
