«Debt and poverty on individuals» conference



This session was designed to portray how the economic crisis has led to a progressive indebtedness of the middle class, which has turned into an impoverished class full of debts and unable to bear the basic costs to maintain a basic standard of living, being forced to request help from their families, friends and also to non profit entities. The conference analyzed the effects that this indebtedness has on the different aspects of life and its influence on the loss of social welfare.

The conference was addressed to social entities and professionals and organizations dealing and/or concerned with consumers’ rights, staff of public administrations, students and the university community, as well as the general public interested in the matter.
