Damned by Debt Relief

KS5: ages 16+WebsiteDVD

This film investigates the way the Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) debt relief initiative places heavy conditions on countries, requiring them to spend government money on specific areas. It questions whether debt relief is as beneficial as the G8 claim, through a Living Marxism perspective.

Filmed in Ghana, it focuses specifically on issues relating to sustainable development. There is an accompanying website with frequently asked questions on the topic of debt relief and some related articles. This resource provides an interesting perspective and would be most effectively used as part of a wider debate on the issues surrounding debt relief.
