Jubilee Research at the New Economics Foundation is an official successor to the Jubilee 2000 UK campaign, which launched the slogan “Drop the Debt” and was supported by Bono of U2, Bob Geldof, Youssou Ndour, Thom Yorke, and others. Jubilee 2000 was a hugely successful international campaign that mobilised 24 million people over five years to cancel the “unpayable debts of the poorest countries by 2000.”

In 1999, at the Cologne G8 Summit, world leaders agreed to cancel $100bn of debts owed by the poorest countries. Jubilee Research, whose director is Ann Pettifor, took over from Jubilee 2000 in 2001 and provides in-depth analysis and data on third-world debt, including the sovereign debts of HIPCs—Heavily Indebted Poor Countries—emerging markets, but also rich debtor nations like the US. We also promote a new, just, international insolvency framework for sovereign debtors—the Jubilee Framework.

Insolvency database – will I get found?

Many people ask, is an iva a good idea?  Well, as long as you don’t have a job where you are not allowed any form of insolvency or many illiquid assets, your creditors could potentially cease; an IVA could be an excellent idea.  Your insolvency will be written into the public record, but if you already have CCJs, it’s not the end of the world.
