The European Community Development and Intercultural Conference in Dublin 2008 presented a number of concerns in relation to funding for Community Development Activists.
The victory of Barack Obama in the presidental election was seen generally as a symbol of hope and was presented by one speaker as the begining of the end of neo-liberal politics.
