20 Years of Focus

It is great to see so many of those who have been part of Focus on the Global South’s twenty-year journey here today, cherished comrades and friends, all of who are also 20 years older…but all still burning with youthful energy like Focus.
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
This year, Focus on the Global South (Focus) completes 20 years of life! To mark this occasion, we are organising an international conference on People’s Struggles and Alternatives on August 13-14 2015, in Manila. The conference will bring together Focus staff, board members, partners, friends, well-wishers and supporters from across the world to discuss and analyse the situation in Asia and the world, and what people are doing to build a better tomorrow.
Below is a letter from our Chairman, Surichai Wun'Gaeo:
1 June 2015
As many of you will have heard by now, we are sadly bidding farewell to Pablo Solon, who has been the Executive Director of Focus on the Global South since April 2012. We at Chula, CUSRI and the region have benefited greatly from his presence. Pablo will be returning to Bolivia at the end of May, but will continue to work on the same issues, so our paths will no doubt continue to cross.
