Reducing global inequality: how can we achieve a fairer world?

Tue 29 Nov 2016, 18:30 - 20:00

The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH

This event is part of the British Academy Debates on Inequalities

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals consist of 17 objectives which aim to transform the world for the better by 2030. Closely interlinked, these goals pledge to tackle a range of issues-from reducing inequality within and among countries to achieving gender equality. How do nations realise this vision of a shared future with equality and opportunities for all? We ask an expert panel to discuss their priorities and hopes for the years ahead.
