Results of the conference "Development in the Face of Global Inequalities"
Between 11-13 of May 2017, IBEI held the conference Development in the face of global inequalities, organized by IBEI and sponsored by The World Society Foundation, with the participation of more than 120 researchers and students, 40 thematic panels and 6 conferences. The objective was to bring together different perspectives and ideas on how development can occur in the face of mounting social and economic inequalities.
Over the past months, in collaboration with democraciaAbierta (openDemocracy) we have compiled the main results of the meeting, to create interactive roundtables and spotlight articles that showcase many of the ideas that came out of the conference. These have been designed to help users explore some of the most pressing issues surrounding inequality and sustainable development, and also provide clearer examples.
- A conversation with: A series of interviews with our keynote speakers on the conference themes of non-state actor involvement, globalisation forces, civil society participation and political settlements.
- Interactive roundtables: We gathered the different perspectives and opinions of our conference participants on politics of inequality, the path to sustainable development and inequality in Latin America, and put them all together in a series of 3 interactive roundtables.
- Videos: 4 of our keynote speakers' lectures are also available, on themes of underdevelopment in the Middle East, the politics of globalisation, urban citizenship and the politics of social welfare provision.
