The Politics of Poverty and Inequality

The Politics of Poverty and Inequality

WORKSHOP co-organized by the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI), the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) and UNRISD.

12 October 2011 | The Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland

Speakers: Yusuf Bangura, Philippe Burin, Sarah Cook, Andrew Fischer, James Galbraith, Charles Gore, Naila Kabeer, Jean-Luc Maurer, Rajneesh Narula, Dennis Rodgers, Frances Stewart

The EJDR and UNRISD were prompted to organize Special Debate Section by the importance of the topic of inequality, and the lack of significant debate about it within the development policy world. Contributions take as a starting point two of the key questions brought up in UNRISD's flagship report, Combating Poverty and Inequality:

-Is inequality an insurmountable obstacle to meaningful poverty reduction, given contemporary global political economy realities?
-What kinds of politics are conducive to substantial reductions in inequality and poverty?

Entrance is free, and no registration is required.
