[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] Dear list members, As you may know, the Paris Club is expected to make a decision on how to address Iraq's debt in October. There are indications that they hope negotiations over any such plan to be over by the end of the year. (See http://www.clubdeparis.org/en/press_release/page_detail_commupresse.php ?FICHIER=com10578674390 for a fairly uninformative press release.) While various figures for debt reduction have been mentioned, it seems extremely unlikely that arguments based on the odiousness of the debt will be accepted. Nevertheless, advocacy on the debt over the next few months seems to offer the promise both of focus and of a clearly defined target. I therefore would be interested in hearing from others on this list, either about updated information, or their thoughts on engaging with this issue.
