Abstract

Jubilee 2000 supporters come from diverse backgrounds, with contrasting decisionmaking styles and political orientations. Jubilee 2000 is far from achieving all of its supporters goals. Speaking to global policymakers with a united voice obviously carries greater political weight than speaking with many, but defining common goals and objectives has been a challenging process for Jubilee, given the different historical and regional realities within and between the global North and South. Since its first international gathering in Rome in November 1998, jubilee has worked hard to achieve as much consensus as possible on aims and strategy and to ensure that tactics in one national context do not inadvertently undercut efforts in others. At the first international jubilee gathering in Rome in late 1998, Southern campaigns decided to meet separately during part of the conference in a South-South exchange in order to share their experiences and try to achieve a greater consensus on a strategic vision.
