The second edition of the ESF took place from the 12th to the 15th of November and gathered around 60000 participants. Specific activities on IFIs included a workshop on the Asian Development Bank and one on the role of Europe at the Bank and the IMF to counter US dominance. Their role was also discussed in a seminar on the right to health and various events on debt. Before the ESF the Bridge Initiative on Globalization organised a dialogue between Susan George, José Bové, Njoki Njoroge Njehu, and Mats Karlsson from the World Bank among others.
