CDS @40 – Inequality everywhere: what is development about?


DI Executive Director Judith Randel will speak at the 40th Anniversary of the Centre for Development Studies at the University of Bath on 29 April

About the event

The Centre for Development at the University of Bath is hosting a panel event focusing on inequality. As the UN signs up to a new set of development goals which recognise the global nature of development, panellists will debate the problem of ever widening inequalities which the new goals may fail to directly address.  They will discuss the processes through which inequalities in income, wealth, wellbeing and opportunities are being produced, reproduced and mitigated and the challenges inequalities present for the future of interventions and policies intended to promote development.

This event celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Centre for Development Studies at Bath by examining insights from its research into the processes through which inequality is widening at the local, national and global levels and how the international development sector must respond if it is to remain relevant beyond 2015.  Presentations from research will be followed by an open panel debate with audience participation.

Date: 29 April 2015

Time: 18.00 – 20.00 Followed by a drinks reception

Location: Building 3WN Room 2.1, University of Bath
