Global inequalities are nothing new. But we're beginning to understand the importance of addressing these inequalities, if we are to achieve real human development around the world. And so, between 11-13 May, 2017, scholars, students and activists came to the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals to take part in a conference entitled 'Development in the Face of Global Inequalities'. It's objectives? To bring together different perspectives and ideas on how development can occur in the face of mounting social and economic inequalities. With participants from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, the conference explored the 21st century development agenda, and here we are showcasing the ideas that came out of it:

A conversation with: A series of interviews with our keynote speakers on the conferences key 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. Click on the participant and see all of their answers to our questions, or instead click on the questions and compare our participants' answers.
