Public round table

Poor thinking: challenging dominant poverty research narratives

This round table of leading, international poverty researchers will examine contemporary global trends in poverty and inequality and discuss the possibilities and responsibilities for eradicating, minimizing and preventing them. Through an informal conversation, participants will discuss which role research can or should play when severe poverty, today, is almost entirely avoidable. What are the flaws of dominant narratives and what are the alternatives? What topics, perspectives and framings can help shift the debate? And how can this be communicated to improve the public understanding of what is poverty and how best to fight and prevent it?

The panelists are: Sharah Razavi (UNRISD), Thomas Pogge (Yale University), Adebayo Olukoshi (United Nations African Institute for Economic Development and Planning), Victoria Lawson (University of Washington), Bob Deacon (University of Sheffield) and Julio Boltvinik (El Colegio de México).

Moderator: Sjur Holsen (Bergens Tidende)

Poor thinking is organized by the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP), and all panelists are members of CROP's Scientific Committee.

Time: Tuesday, 11 May, 17:30

Venue: Bergen Resource Centre for International Development (Jekteviksbakken 31)
