"The Global Strategy Meeting is a space for members to assess the current social-economic-political-legal landscape, deepen our shared understanding of the global connections between localized challenges, and agree on collective strategic objectives for the next five years. While the issues faced and the work of members across the Network are diverse, these objectives are intended to represent an aligned vision of specific ways in which we can make real change in the world over the coming period. Through facilitated discussion, we will consider how these objectives can be realized through and across ESCR-Net’s working groups and in other collaborative ways, such as Network-wide campaigning."
