CONFERENCE: Call for Proposals for the UK launch conference of Academics Stand Against Poverty

23 May 2011 | University of Birmingham, UK

CROP, in collaboration with the University of Birmingham School of Government and Society, is co-sponsoring the UK launch conference of Academics Stand Against Poverty on 23 May.

The conference will be co-hosted by Chair of CROP, Professor Thomas Pogge, who has been at the centre of ASAP development efforts in the United States and elsewhere. Confirmed participants include such leading scholars of global justice, ethics, and development economics as Simon Caney, Darrel Moellendorf, Kalypso Nicolaidis, Sonia Bhalotra, Suzanne Uniacke, Christien Van Den Anker, Thom Brooks, Elizabeth Ashford, Paul Jackson, Heather Widdows and Tom Sorell, among others.

The organizers issue an open call for contributions of up to 1500 words outlining a project proposal that academics might initiate toward making concrete contributions to the reduction of world poverty or addressing related issues, e.g., climate change, aspects of immigration.

All those working on aspects of global poverty, global justice and related issues are invited to submit proposals and attend the meeting. You need not submit a proposal to attend, and broad participation will be encouraged. Lunch and a dinner buffet with wine reception will be provided.
