Investing in quality public services - the best alternative to austerity cuts‏

This week the Council of Global Unions, an alliance of international trade union organisations, held a conference in Geneva on the theme of ‘Quality Public Services – Action now’. The conference reviewed strategies to improve and expand quality public services around the world.

Conference resources are available on line including an excellent paper by David Hall of the University of Greenwich on ‘why we need public spending’.
